CommerceV3

CommerceV3, or CV3 for short, was launched in 2001 by Blake Ellis and Nathan Focht of Savannah, GA, as a way to quickly handle the e-commerce needs of local web customers. The product quickly gained steam and was spun off into its own company. CV3 now powers hundreds of e-commerce sites across the U.S. and Canada, primarily for multi-channel merchants who require advanced integration and marketing features.

$1,000,000,000 And Beyond!

CV3 has processed over a billion dollars in sales and is one of the few e-commerce platforms that appeals to serious merchants whether large or small. Low cost-of-ownership and a flat fee subscription model keeps the platform relevant for small retailers, while advanced marketing, integration and segmentation features provide real power for larger merchants requiring advanced platform power. While most platforms tout their user base, we keep ours small, preferring to cater to serious merchants driving serious revenue.

Achieve Real Results

Windsor Circle was founded by email marketers and eCommerce experts, who understand online retailers' goals and challenges alike - we've been there.  Making the most of your customer data - from the products they've purchased, to their demographics, to their purchase and engagement history - is invaluable, but often hard to do.

Getting it right leads to phenomenal results from more intelligent email marketing campaigns that your customers want to open, because they speak directly to them.  In the fierce and growing competition for inbox attention, you can't afford to send generic messages.  Our customers' results speak for themselves:
