Singing the praises of and Amazon Checkout

June 26, 2009

We field requests for ecommerce sites all the time. And while there are several robust platforms to choose from (open source Magento springs to mind), the majority aren’t designed with the small business or independent seller in mind.

If all you need is a simple ecommerce solution, check out the site we designed for Readeez. Readeez makes children’s videos, cute and quirky sing-a-longs that teach preschoolers their ABC’s and 123’s. They had a great product but lacked the means to distribute it online, so they asked Digital Scientists to lend a hand.

This gave Readeez the ability to manage their own content and update the site when new video offerings were available. We also integrated Amazon Checkout, so customers could purchase Readeez DVD’s directly from the site. Amazon is an excellent option for anyone looking to do low-volume sales. The fees are reasonable and the checkout process is quick and painless. We also find that customers trust the Amazon name and enjoy using their existing accounts and the 1-click Checkout feature.
