Questions and Answers

  • What is an Online Store?

    An Online Store is an electronic presentation on the web of your physical business. The major difference is that your visitors arrive through their screens remotely, rather than walking in through the front door. The major advantage is that your online store is an additional revenue center which never tires and has zero labor costs. Online Stores are used to sell the same items you already produce to off-site visitors that enjoy the convenience of online ordering. For more details see advantages.

  • Do I need special hardware or software?

    No computer or Point of Sale System is necessary on the business premises (A credit card processing terminal is required if you accept credit cards). A fax machine is required since the orders are transmitted via fax, where they can easily be read and processed. No web site is needed! Since main store pages usually display information such as business name, logo, address, hours, phone numbers, etc., you can use the online store as your basic web site. We include web hosting for the store.
    If desired, we can also provide you with your very own domain name which will link directly to your online store. There is a yearly registration fee charged for the domain name through the internet registrars along with a monthly hosting fee; however, we pay those fees for all EzWebOrders store owners!
    If you already have a web site, your webmaster can link it directly to your Online Store. If you need a web site or would like to update your existing one, we can do it for you.
    If we build both the regular site and the store, we can do it at a discount AND the store is 100% integrated with the site.

  • Why use a fax-based system?

    A fax-based system is easy to use and requires no additional equipment other than a plain-paper fax machine. Most businesses already have a fax, so there is no additional equipment to purchase. Complicated equipment usually comes with occasional maintenance issues that require a specialist's attention. Most fax machines issues can be solved immediately by any employee (out of paper, loose cable, off-hook, etc.). When it comes down to it, if it's broken just get a new one - they're inexpensive!
    Faxing is also a much more secure method for transmitting sensitive data than by unencrypted email over the internet. Unencrypted email systems should not be used to transmit credit card data as they can compromise your customer's personal account information.

  • Do I need an existing web site?

    No. The Online Store contains all the important information your customers need to see. Your domain can be easily set to directly bring visitors to your new online store. When visitors type in your web address, they will immediately reach your online store. Each online store is optimized for search engines to make finding you easier.

  • Do I have to learn a new system?
