Why storeBlox 2.0? Why not just use one of the packaged services for suppliers?
How do you stand out in an industry with so many vendors competing for distributorsí attentions? More and more distributors do their research online,
and the huge aggregated catalogs from service providers donít allow you differentiate yourself from your competitors. Your business is unique, and you need to let customers know it.
Recent studies indicate that distributors still use regular search tools like Google more than anything else to find products and suppliers. If you donít have a website, or if you have a site that isnít properly optimized, you could be missing out on a major portion of your potential audience.

Never before has an e-commerce system offered such complete control over size/color options. storeBlox 2.0 apparel management includes mixed color/size availability and automated SKU generation for individual combinations. Even the most complex size/color product models are supported, and simple, one-page configuration makes setup and editing quick and easy. Features include:
- 3-Dimensional Matrix Pricing: A true 3-dimensional pricing model means that color, size and column breaks are all supported independently. That means that availability, price and ordering of products can be handled simply no matter how complex the underlying model may be. Youth and large size price and availability on limited colors, for instance, is simple to set up and maintain.
- Automated SKU Generation: SKU suffixes for color and size are appended automatically to individual combinations.
- Line-item Availability: Products may be activated/deactivated on a line-by-line basis within the configuration.
- Order-at-once: Customers may order multiple sizes/quantities on a single page.
Global Attribute Management:
With a completely customizable product model, storeBlox 2.0 frees you from constraints on product information and pricing. Global filters and fields enable customization of products and searching/filtering of products based on your criteria. Need to give visitors a way to find products made in the USA? Or products made of denim? Simple filter creation and application makes it easy. You can even constrain filters to product listings, so that a filter to find incandescent vs. LED lights will only come up in relevant listings.
Global pricing attributes provide total control of pricing options including rush charges, decoration fees, setup charges, run charges, and even options like polybagging or gift boxes. Global management and availability makes it easy to apply to products and quickly customize at the product level.
Global attribute management gives your site power:
- Better Targeting: Filters and fields allow you to drive customers into desired categories with unmatched precision
- Better Search Engine Indexing: Detailed, structured product data helps enhance search engine relevance
- Accurate pricing: Get complex orders right the first time, or allow customers to create accurate quotes online in seconds
