With the help of TackThis!, the latest e-Commerce platform to dominate the Philippines, it will only take you as little as three minutes to get from ‘mom and pop’ to big-time online shop.

Powered by Smart Communications, Inc. (Smart) subsidiary Voyager Innovations (Voyager), TackThis! takes care of everything in the backend—from storefront design to shopping carts, all the way to payment processing—so budding entrepreneurs can rest easy and focus on making their products better for their customers.
“With TackThis!, it’s now easy to take your business online. Just sign up for an account, upload photos of your products, and you’ll be on your way to reaching more customers in the Philippines and around the world without the need for a programming or Web design background,” explained Benjie Fernandez, Chief Operating Officer at Voyager.
Since launching in October 2013, TackThis! has already signed up more than 6,000 online sellers across the Philippines who are already making their products available to a wider range of customers via the Internet.
With TackThis!, a comprehensive suite of powerful tools is available at online merchants’ disposal so they can focus on creating or selling their products: a secure shopping cart, a product catalog with inventory system, various payment gateways and delivery systems, marketing and reporting tools, and a mobile-optimized store, among others.
But more than the convenience, what TackThis! offers is greater flexibility for online store owners. After creating their own stores, online merchants can easily “tack” or embed their storefronts on to any website, blogging platform, or even Facebook.
TackThis! gives online entrepreneurs the chance to bring their products closer to their target customers, so tacking options to Blogger, Wordpress, Livejournal, Tumblr, Weebly, and Joomla, among others, are easily available.
One of the early adopters of TackThis! is Kimstore, the popular online gadgets store, which recently opened its very own TackThis! Facebook store so its more than 260,000 fans on the social networking site can easily purchase their favorite gadgets without leaving their favorite site.
Interested online sellers can start putting up their stores for by visiting www.TackThis.com.ph. The free Basic plan has an inventory space limit of five products, but other plans are available to suit every merchant’s needs. All paid plans include a 30-day free trial. (PR)
