Andre Brysha, Director of Ecommerce at Worldwide Golf Shops gives the following advice to ecommerce store owners just starting out: “Before opening an online store, do you homework. You need to understand your competition, your profit margins and your potential competitiveness in the marketplace.”  He adds, “You also need to be prepared to allocate the appropriate amount of budget to online advertising, search engine optimization and affiliate channels.”

“Miva Merchant was a great choice for our company because the cost of entry was considerably lower than some of the other shopping platforms, yet their functionality and expansion capabilities are superior,” said Andre Brysha.

“Working with Miva Merchant’s excellent support team, we continue to evolve and improve,” said Andre. “Over the years we have added many of the partner modules to offer our customers the functionality they are accustomed to at websites running on enterprise platforms costing much, much more.”
