Dress A, B, C = 3 products
Shirt A, B, C = 3 products
The agency can migrate basic products information from wordpress (woocommerce) to the new website. If the migration is not possible, there will be an additional fee incurred. The additional fee for every 30 products upload or part thereof is priced at SGD$300.
What are design concepts?
We will provide you with basic layouts for e-commerce websites during the design brief. Please choose 1 layout from the design brief. From the layout chosen and the design concept given, we will come out with a layout tailored to your industry.
Number of revisions and how they work?
We’ll start off by giving you two design concepts. Keep in mind that the design process is highly iterative and collaborative, so we send you the initial designs, we’ll ask for your feedback to make the designs even better. There can be up to a maximum of two (2) changes.
Since these are “template” websites, we will limit the scope of revisions to simple changes like basic layout, colours, fonts, and other styling. Large changes to the website structure are generally out of range.
Are there ongoing fees?
Maintenance Fee – $500/annum (optional)
Includes the following:
- Maintenance of platform compatibility with the marketplace(s)
- Technical Support accordance to Service Level Agreement
Hosting – $300/annum (optional)
- Hosting uptime (99.9%)
- Domain renewal
Porting to Client’s Hosting Platform – $500 (one-time fee)
- If the client has their own hosting platform, we can integrate the platform with theirs on the condition that the platforms are integrable.
- However, the hosting platform has to be evaluated in order to determine if it can be integrated.
3D Brand Agency will not be liable for any errors or issues thereafter. Ad-hoc services will be charged at a fee of SGD$150/hour or part thereof.
How does the invoicing work?
Invoices will be created in all marketplaces, Omni Commerce and Xero Accounting*.
When a buyer purchases from any of the marketplaces i.e. Shopee, Lazada, and Qoo10, invoices will be created on individual platforms. Under Omni Commerce, the reference ID of all invoices is collated on the platform. The invoice may be pushed to the integrated Xero Accounting (if any) and will be able to identify the platform at which the sale was completed at.
*Xero Accounting is applicable only if the client uses that platform.
Can offline purchases be added manually into the Xero accounting from the system?
No, it will be added on Xero accounting software directly.
Can product prices be changed separately for Shopee or Lazada?
Product prices can be marked up separately for the different online marketplaces. The prices can be adjusted by specific online marketplaces as a whole or down to individual products.
Do I know where each sale is coming from?
Yes, each sale will be reflected on your 3D Omni Commerce admin dashboard and will have labels to show where the orders are coming from.
Example – Shopee orders will have a (Shopee) label on the order while orders directly from your online store will not show any labels.
Will I get my own website or just online marketplace listing?
Yes, you will receive your very own E-Commerce store which also integrates with Shopee, Lazada or Qoo10, depending on the package you decide to take up.
