E-commerce solution MoreFrom.Me, targeted at IT retailers and resellers, has announced it's just reached the 1,000 store mark.
In a nutshell, MoreFrom.Me is a free web solution for those retailers and resellers who may not have the time or inclination to set up their own website. Those who work with the provider effectively get their own version of MoreComputers.com, ie a brandable web store that's already populated with over 140,000 products. The MoreComputers team process payments, fulfil orders, deal with distribution, oversee delivery and take care of customer service and returns.
Resellers who choose to partner with More get a guaranteed one per cent margin on everything they sell - with the option to earn up to 13.5 per cent margin when they add a markup. Commission is paid as credit.
Chris Wheater MD and the originator of the MoreFrom.Me concept is pleased with the success to date: “Having 1,000 people take up the idea proves it’s a cost effective e-commerce solution for the channel. We've reached this landmark in just eight months and the feedback from our partners has been great”.
Neil Guy, owner of Datasystems and an early partner, commented: “We reviewed a number of e-commerce concepts before selecting the MoreFrom.Me solution. This package proved the most cost-effective option that would also deliver the highest profit margin. MoreFrom.Me is a good fit with our business model. The system was very quick and easy to set up providing us with a web store complete with thousands of products from major distributors.
“This solution provides everything Datasystems require, leaving us to concentrate on providing installation and configuration services to our customers.”
Clearly there are other solutions out there that will offer significantly more margin - nevertheless, for time-pressed resellers who want an online presence but don't have the time to maintain one, MoreFrom.Me could be worth considering.
