Whether you are a brick-and-mortar store looking to get
online for the first time or even if you have an existing Web site, your Web
site’s look and feel should be just as important as how a site works. How you
choose to present yourself on the Web can be a determining factor for potential
customers. A nicely designed site can be inviting and encourage the shopping
experience. Well designed sites also generate an air of confidence for the
shopper and respectability for the merchant.
Dutch, we went in search of an eCommerce engine that provides our
clients with the functionality they desire and provides us the flexibility to
design unique and interesting Web sites. With the multitude of eCommerce engines
available on the market today, it can be overwhelming knowing where to start.
LaGarde’s StoreFront 6 took a lot of the guesswork out of picking a
solution. Several key factors led to
StoreFront as our engine of choice.

an online giant like Amazon. Customers would be able to create saved carts,

able to track their purchases. As the saying goes, “the customer is king,” and
StoreFront has taken the time to ensure that customers have the features
they come to expect.
StoreFront offered one of the most comprehensive backend tools for the
merchant and the administrative tools are very easy and quick to use. StoreFront

links to open accounts with shippers and marketing sites. Maintenance is quick
and changes take effect immediately, so no more hassling with uploading files to
a Web host. In addition to StoreFront’s built in tools and reports, the software
can also be integrated with QuickBooks.
StoreFront has also taken a lot of the hassles out of set-up and
configuration. The software comes pre-configured with over 15 major payment
gateways and StoreFront also easily integrates with UPS, USPS, FedEx and others
to provide shipping costs to customers.
Finally, StoreFront’s backend can be wrapped around virtually any design. It is
important that our clients’ Web sites be designed with thought and care. It is
also important that a Web site represent the tastes of the merchant and be able
to compliment a company’s identity and product offering.

our clients’ sites. Feature rich for both the merchant and customer, StoreFront
