Across the country, thousands of companies big and small rely on customized apparel to give their employees a cohesive look. However, it can be a daunting task to ensure the process goes smoothly from start to finish. Confusing order forms can make matters even worse, and details often get lost in the shuffle. Luckily, there’s an easy way to manage your customized apparel needs, and you don’t need a degree in computer science to understand it. Here’s everything you need to know about setting up an e-commerce store for your company.
What is an e-commerce store?
Think of an e-commerce store as the order form of the 21st century. With an e-commerce store, office managers don’t need to spend precious time and energy corralling everyone’s order information and money. Instead, employees go directly to the e-commerce site to order uniforms and company apparel. Once there, they can see the available options, get sizing information, and make their order, all from one place. The site keeps tabs on who orders what, and at the same time handles shipping and payment options.
Benefits of opening an e-commerce store for your company
An e-commerce store takes the stress and responsibility of custom apparel off of your office manager. These sites are easy to create, operate and can be maintained indefinitely, so your store is always there when you need it. Whether a large number of employees need apparel or a single new hire needs a uniform, an e-commerce site offers more flexibility than a form, and ensures that vital information doesn’t end up lost or left out. Employees can log in on their own time, and you can input employee stipends to limit overspending. Delivery options are also easy: you can pick up merchandise right from Logo Depot, have it delivered directly to employees, or have your entire order shipped to your office.
