Interested in selling your goods or services online but don't know where to begin? We have been helping businesses to begin trading on the Internet since the early beginnings of ecommerce.
Selling online has a number of advantages compared with selling by conventional methods. The Internet is a global marketplace, so an online shop has the potential to sell to a worldwide audience. It also means your business can be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, continuing to accept and process orders through the night without your intervention.
Wansford offer a professional solution for selling your goods online called Hyperia Commerce, designed for both pure Internet-only ventures and established bricks-and-mortar businesses alike. Hyperia Commerce is a semi-bespoke ecommerce solution which allows merchants to manage an online store both quickly and easily. Each Hyperia store is built on a tried-and-tested software framework offering secure transactions, proven reliability, fast performance and flexible growth, coupled with a completely unique and individual storefront design that reinforces the merchant's existing brand.
No matter what you sell, scuba equipment, rugs or heat transfers for football shirts, from a retailer, a mail order specialist, a wholesaler, a distributor to an Internet start-up, and, whether you sell direct to the public or just supply to businesses, Hyperia Commerce can be tailored to fit your business.
For those businesses who don't need the full power and flexibility of a Hyperia Commerce solution, Wansford offer a cut-down, entry-level solution called Hyperia Lite for specialist retailers with a small, limited range of up to 10 products who only expect to sell low volumes through the Internet. Hyperia Lite can bolt-on to any website and lets merchants start selling goods online at a very low cost. We use WorldPay WorldDirect to accept credit and debit card payments so retailers don't require a merchant account with one of the high-street banks to be able to trade online.
To find out more about Hyperia Commerce and Hyperia Lite please see the Hyperia website.
Wansford Digital combines best practices, innovative software and integrated technology to help retailers maximise their profits across multiple e-commerce channels – including marketplaces like eBay and Amazon; comparison shopping sites like Shopping.com, Shopzilla and Kelkoo; and across all the major search engines.
Designed for online retailers, our solutions enable businesses, both big and small to create, analyse and streamline e-commerce initiatives so they can sell more products, faster and achieve true, measurable ROI without costly IT investments.
