eCommerce LMS Approaches
The LMS eCommerce integration establishes two types of relationship with users of both platforms. In this way, there are two types of approach from two different perspectives of the eLearning process that mark the way in which the relationship between each role that users have inside the platform is developed.
One is the administrator of the platform, instructor or developer of the contents. LMS eCommerce offers that accompaniment role from the moment you decide to put your courses on sale. The process of customization of your virtual store that includes branding, management of the characteristics of both platforms, development of the purchase process with payment methods and the characterization of all the tools you want to put in the virtual store so that the purchase process of users is agile, automatic and in a few steps.
