4 Things to Consider When Choosing an eCommerce Partner

Mary Clare Riordan • March 16, 2015

Executing a profitable and successful eCommerce business is no easy feat. There are plenty of factors that affect the health of your business. It takes strategic moves to find the right solution for your business. For many retailers, this includes finding the right partner to help you implement the best eCommerce solution for your business. While there are many details to take into consideration when choosing the right partner for you, think of the following four questions when arriving at who will work best for you.

Do they understand your purpose? If your partner doesn’t understand your business goals, how can they possibly execute a successful project for you? By fully appreciating what you want to accomplish and what your customers need, the right partner will be able to map out exactly where you need to go and how you’re going to get there.

Can they prove their worth? Anyone can tell you all about how they can help you, but what proof do they have that they can? Ask for references, read customer testimonials, look at prior work. Have them show, not just tell you, how they can help you.

Who’s your project team? Ask for biographies of and introductions to those you’ll be working with. Make sure the experience and qualifications match what you need to successfully get your project done on time and on budget.

Can they implement a viable solution? You’ll be making a significant investment when embarking on an eCommerce project; you’ll want to get your time and money’s worth. Make sure the partner’s project plan aligns with your business goals, so that down the line you can get the most out of your investment.
