Thus, defining the terms with which the designations and activities of the same will be handled or the organizational level in case of working with partners or cooperators, will be vital for your e-commerce, because in this way transparency will be preserved and the elements of incentive for the realization of said business will not be lost.

At the beginning you will definitely have several elements that will make it difficult for you to explore the first explorations on the web, however while your e-commerce business takes hold on the web, you will have to take care of some details to continue generating constant human traffic on your page that generate most of the income of your website.

Another of the facts to improve the operation of your e-commerce business, is to learn to invest at the necessary time, because depending on the moment it will be a good investment or a waste, since in the network this presents a fundamental aspect to scale and expand the growth of your business.

Registrations for your E-commerce business

It is important to highlight that for the organization and success of your e-commerce in reference to the activity it performs, these must be completely detailed based on the activities carried out.

This fact will lead us to the fact that in case of any problem or error you can quickly detect where it has occurred and what to do, it will also generate a good posture to respond to customers who present a problem or complaint

So pampering, it is very important that you keep a daily record of activities (well, at first if it is weekly nothing happens), because they will help you establish the patterns to improve the mechanisms you use by evaluating the results for weeks, months or years.

We can also evaluate the performance of each of the procedures through web indicators or KPIS (keys to the operation of the entity) to determine the processes that must be taken into account in your e-commerce

Customer service, pre-sales and offer procedures

In the same way that a customer walks through a store with countless doubts, those who enter your online store, have the same number of concerns to which you should be attentive.

One of the principles best declared by marketing experts states that, the attention instantly, generates greater clientele and better production or sale,in other words and applied to the e-commerce business, establishes that you are giving absolute priority to the customer, and this likes a lot.

The efficiency with which you respond to comments, address the concerns of users and explain the processes, will make your business a transparent window for the acquisition of products of any kind, in addition to contributing to the user becoming loyal to your products or services, and in this way you meet their needs and you will begin to grow and strengthen yourself as a quality online company.

Taking care of payments is a priority

It is important that you understand that you are going to manage a page where trust is vital, for this remember that, the management of money is something that sensitizes anyone, for this it is recommended that you use affiliations to payment gateways or mechanisms that assure both you and the client that everything will go well.

In case of presenting any problem with income or payments, it is of the utmost importance that you have a record of all the processes and mechanisms that have been able to influence it, especially so that it does not happen again, and so that you can make your business viable.

As it is about generating trust, a clear reference in your e-commerce business, which takes care of everything that has to do with payments or returns will generate greater peace of mind.

If you can afford it, have a department or have someone from the team take care of everything related to the administration, it will help keep records, which will serve to ensure the traceability of the process and will make your life much easier in case of returns management.

Logistics and shipping

One of the most important stages for a correct functioning of your e-commerce businessis the one that has to do with the shipment and delivery of what is purchased by our customers.

Of course before shipping, you must decide what you are going to do with the packaging and labeling, although this will depend a lot on the type of store you have, since if you decide to start with an affiliate store, such as this (Ideas for Gifting), it will be the owners of the merchandise who are in charge.

If your case is different, I can assure you that today national and international shipments are not a problem as long as you choose a solvency provider. The type of packaging and labeling should also be a hallmark of your online store, and you should spend some time on it.

As these two topics have a lot to talk about, if you think we leave it for another post, and I simply leave you some of the recommendations that you can find on the net about which company to choose for the shipments of my e-commerce business, it does not have to be the best, but it is one of them and you will surely find countless recommendations if you look on your own.

Issues that remain pending

I hope that by now, you have not been bored, and if you are reading this, thank you for continuing until the end in this more theoretical vision of how an e-commerce business should be that works.
