The Core Platform

The Upshot Commerce Platform comes packed with thousands of features that allow your business to get up and running quickly. With 18 years of experience, our software and team have evolved to successfully handle stores with hundreds of thousands of transactions to a few hundred transactions per day.

Custom Implementation & Set Up

Whether you're tech savvy or new to ecommerce, creating a brand new site or taking your current site to the next level, Upshot Commerce offers a wide variety of implementation solutions to meet your needs and your budget.

  • Web Design - Our basic platform can be customized to work with just about any custom web design. Whether you are using your own layout, a contracted design firm, or our dedicated in house design services, we will ensure that your site is as functional as it is beautiful.
  • Custom Programming - Need something we don't currently offer? As a company founded by engineers, our methodology is "we can build that." No problem is unsurmountable, and we love creating solutions to help our clients achieve their ecommerce goals.
  • Support and Training - Every plan includes a minimum of 8 hours of one-on-one training with a dedicated Project Manager to get you started on our platform. Training plans are created with the client in order to ensure that you and your staff will have the tools and the knowledge to operate your site from day one. If your team needs additional support or specialized training as time goes on, your Project Manager is always available to create personalized plans with you to provide the support you need.
  • Technical Assistance - After your site is up and running, we do not disappear. Our team of developers, project managers and designers is available at any time to troubleshoot and fix bugs, or assist you with issues and questions that arise. To us, you are more than just a number; we offer personal, dedicated service from people who genuinely care and work hard to make your ecommerce site everything it can be.

Because we are customized to meet your needs, the set up process is different for each new client, and implementation fees can vary depending on your needs. To get a free quote for your next project, simply contact us.

Additional Cloud Instance

Your Upshot Commerce platform is installed onto a sophisticated computer network. We call this network a "cloud system." Your cloud is your home on this system. You add as many clouds as you need to meet your business requirements.

Redundancy

Even though our data center and servers are constantly monitored and managed for security and data integrity, you can never have enough "fail safe" options when it comes to online business. As you increase the number of clouds, your redundancy increases! For example, with 5 clouds, you will have your website on 5 separate instances, each synchronizing data from the master server. In addition, when you have two or more clouds, you also get a mirrored database. This database is designated to synchronize data from the master database in real-time. It is used for fail over purposes in case of database server failure. We highly recommend at least 2 clouds for additional peace of mind.

What is a Cloud Instance?

Your Upshot Commerce platform is installed onto a sophisticated computer network system. We call this network a Cloud System. Your cloud is your home on this system. You add as many clouds as you need to meet your business requirements.

I sell more than 18,000 items. What do I do?

Every cloud instance enables you to sell an additional 6,000 items.
Example: If you have 25,000 items then you would need to add 2 additional clouds. This will give you enough to sell 30,000 items.
Let's look at the math:
2 * 6,000 = 12,000 from your new clouds plus 18,000 from your original cloud.

What about performance? I have a high traffic site!

Here is the great thing about clouds. Each additional cloud increases your performance. As a rule of thumb, if your business does 35/orders a day, then one cloud is great for you. For every additional set of 35 orders/day, you may want to add another cloud.
Example: Your business does 20 orders/day. You original cloud will perform great for you.
Your business does 100 orders a day. You may want to add 3 additional clouds.

What about redundancy?

Even though our data center and servers are constantly monitored and managed for security and data integrity, you can never have enough "fail safe" options when it comes to online business. As you increase the number of clouds, your redundancy increases! For example, with 5 clouds, you will have your website on 5 separate instances, each synchronizing data from the master server.
