Program

The day began and ended with plenary sessions for all attendees. The morning panel discussion examined how stores support their website: the number of fte’s devoted to different aspects of their sites, job descriptions and descriptions of workflow. The afternoon panel discussion examined “best practices” for promoting an e-commerce website.

Main Session

The main session was structured into four mini courses, each lasting approximately one hour:

  • New Feature Overview
  • eCommerce 201—Order Processing
  • eCommerce 202—Custom Products
  • How to Improve Your Site—Design Tips

Advanced Seminar

The Advanced Seminar was intended to facilitate a group discussion among advanced users about work supporting their respective sites.

One-on-one Session

IndieCommerce staff was available the day before each Institute to meet for individualized one-on-one attention.
