Shopcreator has announced the launch of 2 new eCommerce software packages, designed to nurture and protect sustained online business growth.

The distinct Start-Up and Retailer packages offer new, small and mid-size online retailers two scalable access points to the same hosted eCommerce platform that powers websites for the likes of BHS, EMI Music and Guardian Newspapers.

Both packages are available through easy-to-manage monthly payments, and incur no set-up fee. Start-Up and Retailer cost £45 and £90 per month respectively and can be trialled for free via the Shopcreator Website at http://www.shopcreator.com.

‘Start-Up’ features functionality that includes top-sellers, banner ads, newsletter sign-up, cross-sell, 'e-mail a friend', Froogle Feed and Google Analytics. To help increase conversion ratios, the software is ready-integrated with all major PSPs, including WorldPay, Protx and the latest PayPal offering - Website Payments Pro.

‘Retailer’ offers an even broader range of features, plus the flexibility of full design customisation, as well as accepting a wide range of pre-integrated feeds and interfaces from third party systems. Advanced Marketing and Merchandising is provided through e-Vouchers, Product Personalisation, Customer Reviews, Registered User Discounts and Fast Order Screens.

Importantly, both packages are entirely scalable, enabling merchants to increase the sophistication of their eCommerce operations, as their online business grows.

The new software is already in use with a number of online retailers that include; Waddesdon Manor, Black Essentials and The Red Arrows, with many more sites currently in build. The packages are simple to use and are designed to be self-built, with additional assistance available for design, integration and online marketing, if required.

Elias Moubayed, Head of Sales and Marketing at Shopcreator, comments, “Today’s first and second generation online retailers are rightly aspiring to sustained and exponential business growth. With so many eCommerce platforms unable to support this, it’s often only a matter of months before successful online retailers have to scrap initial investments and switch providers. The Start Up and Retailer packages address this scalability issue and are designed to give every assistance to creating and protecting a successful online business.”

Start Up and Retailer are complemented by Shopcreator Enterprise, which is priced on application and powers highly customised eCommerce websites for major high street retailers and mail order businesses including; BHS, Barker and Stonehouse, Guardian Newspapers and the RSPB.
