Customers

Customer Profiles allow your customers to store their information, view past orders, write item reviews, and more.

Reporting

The UltraCart platform features a variety of robust reports to help you manage your e-commerce business. From complete Sales reports to Item and Customer reports.

Accounts Receivable Retry

Orders that have declined payments can automatically route to your Accounts Receivable. UltraCart will automatically email the customer letting them know that there is a problem with their payment and provide a link to self-service update the information. In addition to emailing the customer UltraCart can automatically re-attempt the payment on a schedule that you define. Often times orders will go through on an automated attempt the next day.
