Better Customer Service for E-Commerce

Customer Service: E-Commerce vs. Brick-and-Mortar

While providing great Customer Service should always be a priority, there are some distinct differences between E-Commerce stores and stores with a physical location:

  1. Most physical stores have set hours; Online stores do not. That makes it even more important for an E-Commerce store to offer around-the-clock access to customer service.
  2. E-Commerce stores can offer customers an entire internet of shopping suggestions; Physical stores are more limited, but they have the advantage of direct contact with their customers. Online retailers need make Customer Service access as simple as possible to compensate.
  3. It’s hard to leave a physical store if one already has a cartful of items; with an E-Commerce store, leaving is as simple as clicking a mouse. Customer Service for online stores needs to be as accommodating as possible during sales and checkout to prevent cart-abandonment.

There are more differences, of course, but you get the idea: Customer Service for E-Commerce is a different beast, and requires different tools. Don’t let that put you off, thought: Spilled Milkshake Designs is here to help with customized solutions to help you beef up your Customer Service:

Feedback Forms

You can’t offer the best service if you don’t know how your customers truly feel about your business … and the only way to know is to ask. Spilled Milkshake Design can help with custom semi-automated feedback forms that make it easy for you and your customers to exchange information.
