ST. ALBANS, U.K. — After a year of development and testing, the new Net 1on1 Wholesale website will be launching at the end of June.
According to the company, the arrival of the new site is the first of two, new major launches from the U.K.-based distributor this year, with the “Shop In A Box” turnkey initiative launching shortly after this month’s ETO show.
Tony Gonzalez, managing director, outlines some of the changes that have been made to the site,
“The new site, built entirely on the Magento platform, will not only streamline the way visitors navigate around the site, but will also drastically improve the usability and provide an easy-to-use experience for both our wholesale and drop ship customers alike,” Gonzalez said. “Building on the successes of the previous site, new functionalities have been factored into the new design, following feedback from customers.
“We will now be offering an easy ordering system whereby customers can opt to place an automated order import via our API (Application Programming Interface). This will allow orders to be pulled in quickly from the customer’s site’s back end and supports the top 10 popular eCommerce platforms, including: Magento, Woocommerce, Opencart, and Zencart. A real timesaver!
“For our drop ship customers, our system will now generate a customized dispatch note; something that we feel adds great value to our service and has been requested by customers in the past,” Gonzalez said. “It feels great to be able to provide an improved service to our customers as well as grow the business, its capabilities and its presence online.”
After the launch of the new site, wholesale and drop ship customers will both be able to log into their account from 1On1Wholesale.co.uk exclusively, providing a central hub for ordering and processing stock.
Mark Judge, customer service manager from online adult retailer Segzi gave his feedback from a pre-launch testing phase of the site, saying, “The new site looks great, I assumed it would be quite hard to navigate after being so used to your old site but it’s all very straight forward and easy to use. I always felt your old site was dated looking but it just worked very well…now the new site seems to work better and looks fantastic, it’s a credit to you all!”
The new website will be launched before the ETO show at the end of June 2015.
