We are here and ready to change the way commerce is done. In the year 2013 we released a new platform that is simply unparalleled to anything else available today. We are now ready to equip companies with innovative new tools that easily bridge the gap between new and old. Together we can grow sales online, offline, and any place in between.
Utilizing the freedom and flexibility of the anyCommerce app-based structure and the versatility of the Data Fair, along with ground-breaking new sales and marketing technologies, Zoovy is positioned
to enable businesses to reach clients in both new and old ways.
In the past, one of the biggest challenges in growing a successful online business was choosing the appropriate technology for your business needs. For many, it was a difficult choice because merchants had to do it first, locking them into the way that technology worked, not the way the merchant wanted to. Merchants soon found that the solution they chose was either too limited to allow them to grow, or too complicated to get up and running efficiently.
Being locked in to a specific, one-size fits all technology was not very conducive to businesses that needed to set themselves apart and do things differently. They soon found that if they wanted to grow, they would need to spend a lot of time, resources and money to take the next big jump.
With Zoovy's app-based commerce framework, your stores are now custom tailored to your business needs. As your business grows and your needs change, through app updates, your store can change right along with it. And the best part is, you don't have to start over from scratch everytime! Your store is designed to accomodate iterative updates, allowing you more flexibility as your business grows.
Zoovy incorporates all of the technologies and processes needed to grow successfully, and makes them available through one, easy-to-manage account. Zoovy's long standing partnerships with proven e-commerce industry names ensures the tightest integration and streamlined functionality for your business process. With over 13 years of field-tested input from thousands of successful online merchants, Zoovy is poised to lead the next e-commerce revolution.
Here at Zoovy, we have worked diligently to provide our customers with the most all-encompassing and exstensible e-commerce solution out there. Other companies focus on specific areas of e-commerce, leaving you to figure out for yourself how to integrate new features or update current features when your business grows. We have integrated all of the mission-critical components so you can focus on your business and not your e-commerce technology.
With our emerging app framework, your custom apps will give you unparalleled control over your apps' behavior and business information. You'll need to create your apps and our team is standing by to help.Learn how the process works here
Need help with creating or updating your DataFair? No problem. Our team invented the DataFair! We are standing by to help you get your vital business information ported and situated properly.
We have also worked very hard to provide custom development for add-on apps like Special Offers and Checkout Intercept, just to name a few. If there's a business idea or initiative that you think an app would be perfect for, our team would love to join forces with you to come up with a solution.
The landscape of e-commerce is changing rapidly. WIth more and more sellers using Marketplaces like Amazon, Ebay, Buy.com, etc., the rules of engagement are in flux. No longer will SEO win the day. Winning the BuyBox will make all the difference.
Here at Zoovy, we have identified the next critical strategy in e-commerce as it pertains to selling through marketplaces. Winning the BuyBox, or as we call it, Marketplace Optimization™ (MpO), gets your products in the best possible position to be sold. Our MpO Experts will help you identify the areas of your business to improve in order to increase your frequency in the BuyBox.Learn more about Marketplace Optimization here
At the center of your e-commerce universe is your DataFair, consisting of your business information and your custom apps. But you need to get your apps built and your business information installed, right? We have you covered. Say go, and our project manager will build a team of experts who will help you get up and running quickly and efficiently.
Our designers, developers and testers are chomping at the bit to work on your apps. Just let us know what you need and we'll get our best and brightest to build it for you. Or, you can have your own team build your apps. We have standards and guides for them to go by. Just know that they will be held to the same standards and will undergo the same vigorous testing as the apps we build do.
Your app will start at the DESIGN stage, move to the DEVELOPMENT stage, and then proceed to the TESTING stage. Expect there to be 2-4 rounds of this process until your app is ready for prime time.
With the app framework, you have far more freedom in designing your store than you used to have designing for the Web. Our designers are well versed in these expanded capabilities and will design just about anything you can imagine, keeping in mind aspects of good design, user experience, interaction and shopping best practices.
Our network of developers is bigger than yours. But that's a good thing! It means that we have the appropriate resources to develop your app with all of the functionality and efficiency the app framework affords you. We even make sure that the team members working on your apps are all connected and communicate with one another via a dedicated project management system (Podio). This, along with the development platform known in the industry as GITHUB, your app project stays on track and on time with as many or as few team members necessary.
After the design and development stage are complete, the app is then subject to our vigorous testing protocol. Does it work on a desktop in a browser? We test for that. Does it work on the 20 different phones and 10 different tablets indicated? Yeah, we test for that too. We make sure it does everything it is supposed to do so that when you deploy it, it works.
–B.R. Hamilton, Master Tester
On the first round, there are always things to be refined, fixed or changed. Items to be addressed will be directed to the appropriate team member to work on. Once that list is complete, it will return to the testing stage for another attempt to pass.
The future is now! The app framework is where the e-commerce world will find itself within the next few years. Contact your Customer Service Representative or email us at email@example.com for more information and get started with your new app-based store today!

Zoovy test sites are all hosted under the "ZOOVY.COM" domain name, and using IP addresses assigned to Zoovy by the American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN). Some search engines may not distinquish that each site is separate and therefore the actions of one customer, can affect all customers. For this reason Zoovy has developed a strict policy regarding Search Engine "Spamming" techniques. Customers are explicitly prohibited from:
The Zoovy system routinely sends commercial email on our customers behalf. Email sent by Zoovy is compliant with all Internet mail standards, and clearly designates "ZOOVY.COM" as the MTA (Message Transfer Agent). Zoovy has agreements with several major ISPs to ensure email originating from our mail servers is not treated as UCE (Unsolicited Commercial Email/SPAM).
While Zoovy does not monitor the actual content of messages, Zoovy does dictate the possible origins, and formatting of messages transmitted - including both the header and body content. This includes (but is not limited to) how opt-out and unsubscribe links are presented to recipients, along with what merchant identifiable information is transmitted to recipients. Zoovy has taken steps to ensure our email formats are compliant with the guidelines set forth by both the Federal CAN-SPAM ACT of 2004 and the postmaster guidelines for the respective ISPs we work with.
In accordance with our polices Merchants must agree that any written, electronic, or verbal request by a customer to be unsubscribed must be acted upon within 24 hours - across all merchants marketing campaigns - even those not hosted by Zoovy. Merchants agree not to auto re-subscribe customers who have requested to be removed unless they can prove they have received an authentic request to opt-in the customer.
In addition any attempt to tamper with the email formats developed by Zoovy such as (but not limited to) including concealing information, including deceptive information (such as false addresses / phone numbers), re-opting in customers who have opted-out, or ignoring opt-out requests will be result in immediate, irrevocable termination of the merchants account, along with complete forfeiture of the merchants data, forfeiture of any dues paid to Zoovy, in addition to any fees later assessed by Zoovy for disruption of service. Upon such an event Zoovy may (in it's sole discretion) share the merchants contact information, sales history, and any other information it deems relevant with any requesting ISP, or government agency upon written or electronic request.
