Announcing Three (Somewhat) New Features

June 20, 2014

Hello everyone!

 

For the past six months, we've been rather busy cracking away at a few new system features that are now available on the platform. Yet, while we've gotten some fun things accomplished, we realize that we haven't been very good at communicating their availability to stores. In an effort to overcome that, we're sending this e-mail (and others in the future) to announce these features.

 

Mobile-Optimized Design

When you view a given website on a smart phone, in some cases, if there's a mobile-optimized version available, you see a different layout and design that better fits your phone's screen so you don't have to pinch/zoom.

Beverage Media has completed a mobile-optimized version of the platform to deliver this type of experience for mobile users. As there's some work and cost involved in setting this up, this service is available as an optional feature. If you're interested in this service, please contact us for more details. We can also provide you with some general analysis and advice on what percentage/amount of your website traffic is viewing your website on a mobile device, which may have some bearing on the value of this feature for your store.
 

 

Authorize.net Add-On:
Securely Store Credit Card Information for Future Purchases

Authorize.net has an optional extension to their service called: "payment tokenization". This is more or less a fancy way of saying they can encrypt and store a person's credit card information securely so that it can be used for future purchases. Beverage Media has developed an integration point between this service and the checkout process on the eCommerce platform. For stores that use the Authorize.net gateway, this may serve as a very handy add-on. Contact us if you want to store customer credit cards online securely.

 

 

Constant Contact Mailing List Integration

While our platform has its own e-mail campaign tool, we know that many stores are also leveraging 3rd party e-mail campaign tools as well. In particular, we know that many stores use Constant Contact, as they have a large array of flexible templates and social media remarketing features.

To make it easier for stores using Constant Contact to keep their mailing lists up-to-date, we've developed a point of integration between the My Account > Email Preferences section of the platform and Constant Contact account e-mail lists. The upshot is that as stores sign up for e-mails on the system or change their mailing list preferences, those changes go directly to the live Constant Contact mailing list. Please contact us if you're interesting in adding this integration point!

 

Also, if you're a store that is looking to redesign your website, you may be interested in knowing that we have recently added a lower-cost template design as an option for our system. You can see this template at thttp://demo.bevnetwork.com. This might be an interesting option if you have an older website design that feels dated but don't feel you can handle the expense of a full site redesign.
