Overall Satisfaction

We used Digital River to expand our e-commerce platform internationally.
  • Outsourcing of e-commerce
  • International presence, tax management, etc.
  • Software distribution/Product fulfillment
  • Integrating with any 3rd party is challenging. The more you can do to clearly define your requirements, the easier it will be to integrate.
  • It can be difficult to differentiate and customize your product with an outsourced solution.
  • Your internal timeline might not match with their timeline and delivery schedule.
  • Faster time to market
We evaluated our ability to expand internationally with our current e-commerce platform and decided we could get to market faster with Digital River.
Why re-invent the wheel. Digital River allowed us to put more time and resources on our core competency.
We leveraged Digital River to expand our presence internationally, which was a nice supplement to our e-commerce platform that we developed internally. This allowed us to get our product to market in a very short window. The integration was easy and working with the vendor was pleasant.

If your competitive advantage is your ability to quickly customize your e-commerce platform and react to customer demand, then a hosted e-commerce solution might not be the best approach. Collect and measure web statistics like shopping cart abandonment and react accordingly.
