Maintenance Cost of a Shopping Cart System

We sometimes are asked "Why should I pay for each transaction when I could purchase and install shopping cart software on my web server?"

Our response:

  1. Do you want your staff to spend time maintaining the software or focus on selling wine?
     
  2. Our shopping cart has been custom-developed to meet the unique needs for wine. No generic shopping cart software can properly handle your requirements. Some examples:
    • We provide multiple levels of checks to ensure that wine is not shipped to a post office box.
    • We properly calculate shipping costs when the weight of 750ml bottles vary by wine type.
    • We verify deliverability for those states with dry or moist areas.
    • We request the shipping county only when the Zip Code crosses a county boundary and either the sales tax or deliverability varies between county.
    • We check volume limits per state regulations per order and based on customer/household/company history.
    • We integrate with age verification services to provide online verification of the customer's age, as required by some states.
    • We calculate sales tax for wine at the state-level or municipality-level at the rates for wine shipments.
    • We correctly calculate sales tax for wine, merchandise items, food items, and the portion of shipping cost that is taxable.
    • We enforce adult signature requirements for wine shipment carrier labels.
       
  3. We maintain the shopping cart for all compliance rules including sales tax rates, dry areas and volume limits. Our compliance rules are reviewed by a wine compliance company.
     
  4. We have integrated our service with popular accounting systems, wine club services, compliance reporting services, fulfillment centers, credit card gateways, and age verification services.
     
  5. There are no annual or monthly maintenance fees. Your processing fees are based on what you use. Our second tier pricing is only one-half of one percent.
     
  6. You can sell wine, merchandise and online gift certificates through our shopping cart.

If you are comparing this service to others with a fixed monthly cost, note that our fees equal $100 for $11,000 of net product sales and $150 for $21,000 of net product sales.

"Before we launched on WineWeb, our site had no online order system and to make changes we had to rely on the sole family member who knows Web programming. Now any of us can update the site at any time from anywhere, and we are fully e-commerce capable, giving our customers a simple and efficient means to place orders. In the first 12 months we've seen a return on investment of more than 500%."
