Clients using Magento online stores are able to log into their backend in an online administration area, allowing them to control most aspects of their online store including:

  • Managing product categories and menus
  • Adding and editing products, product images, size and color variations, pricing and sale pricing
  • Adding and editing online content using Magento's built in Content Management System (CMS)
  • Managing multiple payment gateways (Authorize.net, PayPal, Google Checkout, etc.)
  • Managing multiple shipping methods (USPS, UPS, FEDEX, DLH, etc.)
  • Pinder Bags

    Managing coupons and catalog pricing offers
  • SEO management
  • Managing Cross Sell and Upsell products options
  • Managing orders, invoicing, shipping, and credits
  • Managing customer reviews and ratings
  • Reporting analysis for Orders, Customers, Reviews, Shopping Cart etc.
  • Customer Newsletters and Subscriptions

Magento provides all these features with the base software so clients can maintain their own storefront in an easy to use interface.. Because Magento is open source, there are hundreds of modules available to customize your shop with the additional selling features such as gift certificates, live chat support, image toolboxes and more.

Once your store is live, Theatrium can help you generate qualified traffic to your site through online pay-per-click ads through major search engines, such as Google and Yahoo. Additionally, we can set your store up for automatic product feeds to Google Base / Google Merchant product search feeds.

Hosted Solutions: Amazon.com

For hosted solutions, in which you pay a monthly fee for your eCommerce stores along with fees per transaction, Theatrium Design recommends considering Amazon.com hosted stores. While not as fully customizeable as the software solution packages, Amazon.com hosted webstores allow clients to get up and running with their store very quickly. Amazon.com allows clients to manage their own store and products, and offer many of the important upsell features such as coupons, gift wrapping, inventory tracking, and wholesale/retail pricing options. Additionally, Amazon stores are automatically included in the Google Base/ Google Merchant results, which offer speedy indexing on Google. Amazon.com storefronts are also available to add to the Amazon storefront, which would include your product in the Amazon.com site search results.
