Solvit Success Stories: Payments Solutions for Therapists and Counselors

HIPAA-compliant online payments have allowed counselors, psychologists, and therapists to take an important step towards providing mental health services to patients across the globe. In this article we would like to introduce Inkblot, a Toronto-based virtual mental health service that has made waves during the trials and tribulations of the pandemic, allowing patients to receive mental health services through their virtual platform, pay for healthcare services online, and ultimately access support from almost anywhere in the world.

2020 Put Mental Health to the Test

At Solvit, we are especially interested in promoting companies that have creatively utilized technology to address the most difficult challenges the human race has faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. Its no secret that the past year has been hard on everyone from a mental health perspective, and coupled with that has been reduced access to in-person mental health services.

The emergence of digital therapy services and telemedicine solutions has ushered in a new era of accessibility and privacy in the mental health profession. Solvit aims to provide reliable payments solutions for mental health services to compliment this emerging industry variation.

Cold Snaps: Build a Free eCommerce Store and Beat the Weather

Cold Snaps: Build a Free eCommerce Store and Beat the Weather

What does building a free eCommerce store and cold weather have in common? Shopping from home goes hand in hand with chilly winter weather, which means that businesses that leverage eCommerce websites are able to keep customers walking through the door.

Solvit is based out of Whitefish, Montana, deep in the heart of the Rocky Mountains just an hour from the Canadian Border. This winter, there were reports of temperatures as low as -40 degrees Fahrenheit – before wind chill. In this weather, everyone just hunkers down and stays warm. As a result, retail shops have very few visitors, and if they don’t have an eCommerce website for retail sales to keep a point-of-sale truckin’ along, then sales drop with the temperatures.

Products matter, but in the end, it’s all about increasing your point-of-sale network

If you own a retail business that sells down coats and long underwear, you are going to see an uptick in sales when the weather drops into sub-zero temperatures. That being said, you won’t experience the same bump in sales that your competitors see if they are selling retail products online and you are only selling in person. By neglecting to add an eCommerce website to your point-of-sale-network, you are missing out on potential sales, plain and simple. Even your local customers, bundled up at home around the fire, would love to hop on your website and purchase products and either drive in to pick it up in person or have it shipped locally to their house. Why not build a free eCommerce website with Solvit and start selling your products online?

Solvit eCommerce is a true turnkey eCommerce website platform

What is the biggest obstacle standing between you and building a free eCommerce website? Well the cost to build the site has been taken care of right out of the gates thanks to our free eCommerce option. But for most store owners, if the monthly cost is reasonable, the next biggest challenge is getting your product catalog integrated with the site and taking time to integrate your brand. The big difference is that unlike most of the other eCommerce platforms, Solvit offers the option to have your catalog and brand integrated as part of your subscription package. This way, you can just give us your logo, contact info, basic about info, and product catalog and we will hand you a ready-to-sell eCommerce website complete with payments processing and shipping services.

How do I select an eCommerce platform?

There are dozens of eCommerce store platforms on the market, of which a few hold the lion’s share of the eCommerce market. What you should be looking for in an eCommerce platform has more to do with how much time and resources you have to divert away from running your business and use to set up an online store, and what kind of integrations will help streamline your online business to sync with bookkeeping software, payments terminals, etc. This is where Solvit comes in.

Solvit eCommerce offers two leading options for creating a new eCommerce store:

Fast, simple, powerful eCommerce

This is our primary eCommerce software, built from the ground up to perform well on any device, with online stores for any industry. It is feature rich, easy to use, and comes pre-packaged with payments processing, shipping services, surcharging and more. It’s a great option for anyone who is looking to build a professional eCommerce site quickly and efficiently. It also integrates with all of our other products, so that you can sync sales across your various points-of-sale.

A souped-up version of the leading eCommerce solution for WordPress

WooCommerce is the leading eCommerce solution for WordPress, which means that it can be added to an exiting WordPress site. It is a great option for existing WordPress website owners, and is highly customizable. This option requires theme integration, settings configuration, payments processing, and shipping configuration. At Solvit, we offer a package that includes all of these requirements, allowing you to launch your store quickly and easily.

We also offer a free eCommerce store option for ultra-lean startups that are looking to test the waters with online sales.

Solvit Success Stories: Online Ordering Systems for Restaurants

Few industries have been hit as hard by the pandemic as the restaurant industry. With in-person dining options limited or entirely suspended, many restaurant owners have implemented restaurant online ordering systems. For Eden East, the solution was to temporarily pivot from their community dining farm to table business to selling fresh vegetable and seasonal herbs on their eCommerce website, giving their regular customers a way to safely support their favorite local restaurant and a steady revenue stream to help keep them afloat during the transitional period.

eCommerce for Restaurants

In the past several years, the purpose of eCommerce has been completely reimagined. Restaurant owners have gotten creative, and asked the simple question, “what if eCommerce could serve as a restaurant online ordering system?” The antiquated systems of old required extraordinarily complex configurations to enable timely kitchen order printing, but modern eCommerce platforms like Solvit eCommerce can easily be configured to connect with our kitchen display systems. Its a fast, streamlined solution for restaurants that are looking to add custom delivery services through their own platform.

Product Upsells and Gift Cards for Restaurant eCommerce

Three of the best things that you can do as an eCommerce business owner is to leverage product add-ons, gift cards, and abandoned cart emails. Eden East offers at least two out of three of these services, allowing them to do things like offer “Dinner for Two” gift options and to add unique add-ons like Rose Honey. This allows them to maximize each order placed on the site, which is brilliantly effective way to make sure that you are not selling yourself short. Kudos to Eden East!

What about when things go back to “normal?”

At Solvit, we believe that “normal” is an ever-changing condition, especially as it pertains to technology and global markets. We understand the state of flux that we are all in, and we anticipate many of these changes finding a permanent home in our economy. First among those is the importance of free eCommerce websites, online payments, and specifically – online ordering systems for restaurants – are at the top of this list. The businesses that succeed in post-COVID America will likely be those that stayed creative during the pandemic, the businesses that found new revenue streams through eCommerce, safety for employees with self-order kiosks, convenience through digital invoice software, reduced expenses with compliant surcharging, and streamlined checkout with smart payment terminals.

Create an eCommerce Site for Free

Do you want to start selling your products online? The world was already on a trajectory towards a larger online economy, and the events of 2020 have kicked this transformation into hyperdrive. Hopefully brick and mortar retail businesses, restaurants, and bars can go back to processing more payments in person soon, but all of the experts are convinced that the eCommerce-heavy economy is here to stay. Solvit is here to help you adapt and start selling online with Solvit eCommerce – the complete eCommerce platform.

For most business owners, the task of moving some or all of their business online is daunting, but for customers using Solvit eCommerce, the process is fast, simple and effective.

Solvit eCommerce is a Turnkey eCommerce Solution

Solvit eCommerce is ready to start selling from day 1. Most eCommerce solutions are nothing more than an empty store that you have to configure from the ground up. As a result, most new eCommerce store owners spend the first couple of years figuring out the ins and outs of running an eCommerce store, which results in a costly trial and error effort that cuts into the time that you can spend running the other parts of your business.

Unlike the other eCommerce platforms on the market, Solvit gives you a solution that includes payment processing, shipping services, content and product integration, and theme configuration. You can literally sign up, hand us a product list and company logo, and we can take care of the rest.

Here are a few of our favorite Solvit eCommerce features:

Integrated Payments Processing platform

New eCommerce store owners quickly realize that most eCommerce platforms are not immediately ready to start accepting payments. You generally have to pick a payments processor, install a gateway, configure the gateway, perform checkout testing, and then launch. This process only serves to pull you away from running your business and leave you learning new industry lingo and undertaking a fairly technical process by trial and error.

Solvit eCommerce ships with payments processing integrated into the platform, so once you have access to your store, you are already ready to start selling.

Content and Product Integration Services

Prefer to just have Solvit set up your store for you? We can do that! Save yourself the headache of organizing and optimizing images, configuring product descriptions and categories, configuring product variants, etc, and have Solvit populate your store so that you can start selling right away.

Integrated Shipping Solutions

The vast majority of eCommerce store owners do not have a plan in place for how they are going to ship their product to their customers, and are forced to figure it out on the spot when their store is about ready to launch. To help eCommerce store owners skip the hassle of reinventing the wheel, Solvit eCommerce comes ready-to-ship with two primary shipping options:

Self-Shipping: Our built-in software will print shipping labels for new orders, charge you the correct postage, and make it easy to handle your shipping services internally.

3PL (Third Party Logistics) Shipping: We have partnered with a third party logistics company that will store your product for you, package it, ship it out to customers, and receive returns / reintegrate them into your inventory. All you have to do is focus on selling!

Customer Relations Management (CRM) Integration

If you want to be successful in the eCommerce industry, you have to compete for customers. A CRM allows you to create an email marketing list with emails gathered during checkout, dramatically increasing the opportunity for repeat business. It also allows you to follow up on abandoned carts, or customers who filled their shopping cart but never checked out. This is a great way to try to bring a customer back onto your store and get them to complete the checkout process.
