If we seem a little excited about the news in this post, that's because we are. We're about to roll out the largest upgrade in the history of Radium3. This is the culmination of years of planning and months of careful development. We wanted to give you a heads up so you know what's coming:
On June 8, 2011, we're adding powerful yet easy-to-use online store functionality to the Radium3 platform.
Envision the Possibilities
The new online store functionality makes it possible for anyone to easily sell products on their Radium3 website. Whether you have hundreds of products to sell or just a few, our store gives you all of the tools you need. And, because it will be seamlessly integrated into every Radium3 website, you can list products on any page of your site with just a few clicks.
There are no confusing dashboards to navigate. With Radium3's online store, you just browse your site as normal and drop the new "Product Listing" element into any region on any page with a click. One more click, and you'll be setting up your first product. Adding products to your website has never been so easy.
Robust Product Settings
Though extremely easy-to-use, the Radium3 online store offers powerful features. For each product, you can configure basic information, upload multiple images, create unlimited product variants with customizeable options, track product inventory, track weight for shipping, add product tags, and much more.
Seamless, Secure Shopping Cart and Checkout
The user experience for customers is managed by an intuitive, well-designed shopping cart and checkout process that's built into every site. SSL security is automatically ensured. Payment processing can be handled by PayPal, Google Checkout, or Authorize.net.
Store Admin for Backend Management
While products can be added and edited right on your web pages as mentioned above, we also provide a complete store administration interface for backend management, bulk updates, and fulfillment. Through the various management screens you can:
- Get an overview of store activity
- Fulfill, cancel, and refund orders
- Manage customers
- Export customer email addresses
- Perform batch changes to products and listings
- Configure store settings
- And much more
No Additional Monthly Cost!
That's right! The new online store functionality will be added to all paid Radium3 websites at no additional monthly cost (free websites will have access to store functionality in test-mode only). This means that all existing paid websites on the Radium3 system will instantly be able to implement the store.
The only cost for using the Radium3 online store is a 1% transaction fee (2% on the basic plan) in addition to any fees charged by the payment processor you choose, such as PayPal or Authorize.net.
The only limitation on the store functionality is the number of product SKUs you can have in your website's store. The SKU limitation for each plan level will be:
- Basic - 100 SKUs
- Plus - 500 SKUs
- Advanced - 2,500 SKUs
- Pro - 10,000 SKUs
- Premier - Unlimited SKUs
Scheduled to Launch June 8, 2011
We're so excited to bring you this update. Our team is working hard on the final details and planning to launch on June 8, 2011. There is no scheduled downtime for this update. More details on this and other store-related information to come, so stay tuned!
