The Benefits of Outsourcing Your Ecommerce Platform
Focus on your core business and growing your revenue. Stop investing your company’s time, money, and resources into maintaining a commerce platform — which will need to be constantly updated and improved as your business grows and needs change.
FastSpring caters to digital businesses and online merchants selling software, SaaS or digital goods.
For regular downloadable products, no custom coding is needed when you outsource your ecommerce to FastSpring, even for subscription products.
Increase international sales by displaying your order page text in each customer’s native language (19 popular languages are supported), displaying prices in localized currencies, and settling your transactions in the appropriate currency for each customer (AUD, BRL, CAD, CHF, CNY, DKK, EUR, GBP, HKD, INR, JPY, NZD, PLN, SEK, SGD, USD, ZAR).
Reasons to let FastSpring handle your ecommerce needs:
- Increase revenue through cross-sells and upsells on order pages, which typically increases your average revenue per order by 15-45%.
- Order pages & checkouts branded with your site’s look to reduce cart abandonment.
- Easily set up product discounts, coupons, bundles, volume licenses and other pricing adjustments.
- Reduce your fraud rate. FastSpring aggregates order data and does real-time anti-fraud analysis of each new order prior to each transaction occurring, eliminating fraud to a far larger degree than a merchant can do on its own.
