Magento Go (or alternative solution) in China
I'm in the process of evaluating an e-commerce platform catering mainly to Mainland China. A few questions for you (as you will understand, I'm quite new to the whole e-commerce game):
- Does Magento Go support the Chinese Language? How does it work? Do we have to translate manually everything in the shop front or is there some sort of ready-made translation for the key elements?
- Can I have the goods shipped from multiple origins outside the country? Meaning: item A has one origin in Italy, item B has another in Turkey, etc.? -How does the system manage the complexity? (shipping costs should take into account not just the delivery address but also the varying starting point). When the order is taken and the invoice generated, how do I inform my partners in Italy/Turkey/... that they should ship the product? Can Shipworks handle this part?
- Can you have in Magento Go more than one shop-front (one in English, one in Chinese, etc.?)
- this might be a bit outside of your remit but...any shipping courier you'd advise for China? I'm told local ones are very fragmented and not always reliable...
Of course, if you have better alternative in mind to handle this I'm open to recs. I did some browsing and the names that keep popping up as "more reliable" are either Venda or Magento...
Thanks in advance for this!
