Ever felt like you're just a number when dealing with customer support for your ecommerce platform? Long wait times, unhelpful chatbots, and unanswered emails can leave you feeling frustrated and powerless. Unfortunately, many ecommerce solution companies prioritize new sales over ongoing support, leaving online sellers stuck navigating complex ecommerce issues on their own.

This lack of support can have serious consequences for your ecommerce business.

Customers facing problems during checkout are more likely to abandon their carts. Unresolved issues can damage trust in your brand, leading to lost sales and negative word-of-mouth. Without proper guidance, you might even be missing out on key features and functionalities that could boost your bottom line.

The good news is that some ecommerce solution companies understand the critical role of stellar support in your growth. By choosing a provider that prioritizes ecommerce success, you gain access to a team of experts dedicated to helping your online store thrive.

Miva Support: Expertise and Trust at Your Fingertips

When it comes to ecommerce success, having a reliable support system is just as crucial as having a powerful platform. At Miva, we understand the challenges you face because we've been in the trenches with ecommerce brands for decades. We repeatedly hear that ecommerce support for businesses is lacking, and it's a huge reason online businesses eventually replatform with another provider.

That's why we offer a comprehensive selection of support options designed to meet your needs every step of the way. Here's a breakdown of Miva's ecommerce support options:

  • Technical Assistance Center (TAC): Miva's TAC is your one-stop shop for core software and account information. Our knowledgeable representatives can assist you with anything related to the Miva platform's built-in features and functionalities or answer questions specific to your account.
  • Customer Success Team: Dedicated customer success managers are assigned to each Miva client. These specialists, with extensive experience in ecommerce and deep knowledge of the Miva platform, act as your personal advocates. They provide ongoing guidance and ensure you get the most out of your Miva experience. They can help you navigate the platform, answer your questions, and even assist with developing a success plan tailored to your unique goals.
  • Developer Support: For merchants with in-house development teams, Miva offers dedicated developer support. This channel connects you directly with experienced Miva developers who can provide technical assistance and guidance for any development work you're undertaking on the platform.
  • Professional Services: Miva's professional services department caters to merchants who require additional assistance beyond the core platform. This paid service offers a range of options, including custom development work, integration assistance, design services, and consulting. The cost of these services varies depending on the project's scope, but we offer competitive rates to ensure you get the most value for your investment.

By providing a tiered support structure with multiple options, Miva ensures that you have the right resources, whether you need help with everyday tasks, troubleshooting complex issues, or customizing pages to meet your specific needs. This comprehensive support system creates a sense of security, knowing you are always supported, no matter the challenge. But don't just take our word for it.
