Econt supports the development of the electronic commerce in Bulgaria. The company focused its efforts towards facilitating and optimizing the processes of orders treatment at the stage of preparation of products for delivery to the courier.
To ensure this, Econt invest resources in developing software products for integration with the Courier’s system. The opportunities that the Courier currently offers to active online traders are:
1. Integration through module for delivery for the different platforms, on which is based the online store;
2. Built in virtual office in the user’s site (page, store, email ...).
1. Implementation of integration through a delivery module
The integration module enables Internet merchants in addition to automated preparation of bills of lading, to optimize the delivery costs.
The customers of each integrated shop have the opportunity to receive information about the price of courier’s service still to the site of the online store. In order from an integrated online shop, they can determine the type and terms of delivery - whether to be sent to specified address or to a convenient Econt’s office. They can choose whether to use additional services such as declared value, priority hour for delivery and others.
When setting up the module (this is done once in the integration of the stores) the trader, shop owner, is able to determine the conditions for delivery of items sent by him, as well as pre-order for returning of goods to him in case of refusal by the recipient.
Software integration with the system of Econt for the electronic stores that are not developed on a ready platform can be achieved through a communication protocol. The protocol can be downloaded HERE.
Information and comparative characteristics of different platforms, based on the work of the electronic stores and for which we already have developed modules for integration, you can see below.
