I have a couple of questions on a ecommerce site I have. I have about 10-15 orders a day going through and want to know the best way to manage the fulfillment of these orders.
Does anyone know of any low-cost Microsoft Access packages out there that I can use to import orders in and manage the invoice printing, marking shipped orders, sending emails, etc...? I currently have my site on a ecommerce host, but i'm not satisfied with their fulfillment features. I can't customize the order invoice with my logo and design.
Also, any basic ways to keep track of the accounting side of it? If I use quickbooks, do I need to enter every single order in there. Or do people batch up their orders on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. i think i would have a hard time trying mapping the fields and converting the data with quicbooks. i can export the data out of my ecommerce host, but don't want too many steps to do on a daily basis. this is being run by my wife and I.
So I'm basically trying to get a feel for how people handle their accounting.
Thanks for any input. And please sticky the names of any software titles you recommend to me.
