Gema Shop

GemaShop provides a great eCommerce platform to power SMB. It’s great for anyone who started with solutions like an ebay shop, or a Paypal cart on their website, but wants to control their costs.

Simple solutions such as Paypal and Google are great to get you started.  Gema is the ideal next step. It provides increased flexibility, avoids high charges associated with volume sales, or high value items, and gives you great access to a global marketplace. The independent, hosted GemaShop offers enormous potential benefits to you, at a price that’s just right for the size of your business.

Become a 24/7 business – Because your shop is online, you are always open and able to process orders, even if your office is closed.

Create a level playing field – even as a small business, you can present a professional and credible image as strong as much larger competitors.

Cut out the middleman - you can sell directly to end-users and increase your profit margin.

Users and Roles

Order Processing

GemaShop task displayThe system is task-based. It provides lists of orders that need attention at each stage of the process. An order appears in a task list when an action is required to progress it to the next stage.

Orders added via the public website are added and invoiced by the system and a payment will be taken and recorded if the user pays by credit card.

If an order is only part shipped it will remain in the ready to package or awaiting stock task list until all the order is packaged and shipped.

Returns Processing

Returned orders use the same package and delivery task groups as new orders so they are processed in the same way.
