eCommerce is coming, eComm..
While walking into a brick & mortar Alfa parts supplier (cyberbabbel
for a store) has some advantages, catalog buying has its, AlfaCyberSite
feel the majority of our customers want to source items in a
simple, logical manner from the comfort of their home, 24
hours a day, 7 days a week.
WHAT ALFAS WILL BE
Initially we will be catering to those owning '66 to '94, Series
1 thru 4 Spiders. Later we will offer items for
research indicates Spider owners are more inclined to keep their
Alfas a number of years and are dedicated to keeping them well
maintained. Part of this can be attributed to their good (and
increasing) resale value.
WHAT ABOUT THE LESS
After all the eCommerce tools are in place, ACS will begin including
tips for such projects as removing, rebuilding, & replacing
engines; trouble shooting the Spica; what are good aftermarket
cams or suspension parts, etc.
There are plans to
have a discussion group dedicated solely to the repair
of specific items. Yes, there are other discussion groups, but
this one is intended to be no nonsense, how do you do it / this
is how it is done, specific.
WHY WON'T ACS TAKE
ACS is a small operation which has only so many hours in the
day to get the job done. Sorry to sound so commercial, but time
spent on the phone or emailing detailed information impacts on
getting product shipped.
ACS will offer their
products at 3 to 10% less than our competitors.
Hopefully that will help offset talking to a 'friendly' voice.
If you've ordered online-- perhaps a book from Amazon.com, you'll
find the ACS shopping cart & checkout procedure pretty similar.
HOW WILL I FIND SPECIFIC
Initially there will be both Alfa Parts & Accessory Parts.
Think of the Alfa Parts as items you'd find in an Alfa parts
The Accessories will
be items not originally offered--Cibie lights, Talbot mirrors,
MOMO steering wheels, etc.
Alfa Parts are broken
down into approx. 44 Groups. Locate the logical Group,
download (allow a little time--all parts have photos),
click Add on all items wanted, then go to checkout. It's pretty
