FAQs

Q. How long does it take to build an online store?
A. The package outlined above can be ready to launch in 6-12 weeks.

Q. Can I take advantage of the package without a store?
A. Yes. This Quick Start package may be applied to any business as described. Each potential project is reviewed and provided unique recommendations.

Q. What if I already have a website but not a store?
A. We would need to review before answering. In many instances, we have found it more efficient and economical to replace an existing site and migrate content.

Q. Can the online store integrate with my bricks and mortar store POS?
A. There are many instances when this is possible, all depending on your current POS system. Sometimes there are existing APIs available to facilitate the two systems to talk to one another, other times we have built custom middleware to make this possible (extra costs).

“I wish we would’ve gone online sooner. It has freed up time for some of our employees, and allowed us to become more efficient and productive. It also allowed us to continue to serve our customers, in a time and space where, had we not had a website, our business may have suffered gravely, or we may not have been able to offer our staff the security of their health and safety.”
