Introducing … S-Commerce
If asked to think about it, most reasonable people would agree the eCommerce, just like any commerce should not exclude the opportunity to build real relations between real people, to value the human input to all parts of product's supply chain and to meet needs at the least cost to the planet. Reviewing what this means for the Magento platform we've come up with some functionality that helps in these areas. Our S-Commerce (S is short for Sustainability) Extension empowers product story telling, a Used Product sourcing and cataloging and to help motivate engagement with these as well as normal sales there's also a reward points facility.
[clear both style]
- Enhanced product human interest value in the minds of purchasers
- Generate reassurance in prospects looking for an authentic indication of the genuineness of your company and the products you sell.
- Enhanced customer loyalty and engagement.
- Increased supplier satisfaction and engagement.
- Reduced administration for selling Used Products alongside new ones.
- Opportunities to explore new channels for sourcing products for sale that are non-new or seconds. Including with with existing clients/customers.
- Usual reward/loyalty points sales improvement benefits.
- Friends and family Customer driven introductions to friends and family via 'points gifting'.
- Usual product review benefits.
- Improved search engine ranking due to increase original text content on product pages.
All of which can increase product sales, especially to customer groups who respond well to the 'human touch' and who take sustainability seriously.
