Complete eCommerce Operation and Integration

MattCMattC subscriber Posts: 10
Hi Everyone,
What is the best way to ensure optimal integration with all aspects of an online eCommerce site?  A lot of the research i`ve done has led me to individual ad hoc programs whether its a CRM tool, then a credit card processing program, the something to deal with shipping, an accounting program like quickbooks.
Are their programs that handle everything from the beginning to the end?
i.e.  Customer places order > processes credit card > uploads info into customer data base > uploads into orders that need to be fulfilled > aligns with accounting software etc?

    If you choose QuickBooks, there are a few ecommerce programs that are designed to work with that program. The problem is all of the suggested programs are do-it-all solutions that have (I think) high monthly fees... and probably design limitations.
    Alternatively, if you already have an ecommerce program you`ll need to search for an interface like the one Janie noted above.
    If you want your ecommerce (online store) to process credit card purchases, but do not need it to interface with an accounting program, themn most good ecommerce solutions do provide interfaces with popular credit card processing companies (merchant accounts).
