We must define our customer flow when creating an account, management of each profile and managing payment methods in a safe and transparent way.

  • Experience

We must consider that each new visit increases the possibilities of conversion and therefore it is necessary to focus strategies in providing an excellent user experience with an optimal, easy to use and transparent platform on each transaction.

For a site to fulfill the function of e-commerce it must have integrations of payment and inventory, where the client will configure payments with their confidential information.

Within the integrations, it is necessary to set security certificates that reinforce the transparency and encryption of confidential data.

  • Provider

The provider must be able to structure, plan and notify the progress of the approved work plan with the development of tools based on our business objectives

Maintenance plays a very important role in this type of solution as it does not give itself to defined times, you will need a long-term support plan and a reliable provider.


This implementation will help your company to focus its strategy on the total reach of customers, capture more users and increase sales notably focusing on after-sales regarding time and quality of delivery, product quality, pricing and usability of the tool.
