Marketing Features

A well-rounded marketing strategy is required for growing an eCommerce business, and can put quite a strain on your website and your time.

Sales Channels

Selling online is like opening a new door, but there's still much further you can go. Many of the most successful businesses sell actively across multiple channels, like Amazon, eBay, Facebook, and Google Shopping alongside their online store. Some sell from a brick-and-mortar location, conventions, pop-up stores, or otherwise face to face with customers, which requires a POS (Point of Sale). And of course, it's crucial to target customers on mobile devices as they get ever more popular. The point is to reach your customers — both current and potential ones — wherever they are, and Shift4Shop can make it happen.
