Do you use CRM to accompany your ecommerce store ?
by /u/1f1nas on November 12, 2019 at 6:16 pm
Guys hi, As the title says i wonder if you use CRM to accompany your ecommerce store. I played with CRMs and seems like they are very useful for B2B (with lots of call/email outreach) but don't really see it that valuable for ecommerce (were often most sales are generated via google ads, fb ads, seo, etc). If you use CRM could you explain how you use it ? submitted by /u/1f1nas [link] [comments]

Hreflang is an HTML attribute that allows Google and other search engines to recognize localized versions of web pages. If you have sections of your site for a French audience, for example, an hreflang tag helps Google understand that the section should appear in search results on Google.fr, not Google.com.

How do I sell a bunch of blank domains?
by /u/TheSkyPirate on November 12, 2019 at 6:04 pm
My parents have been holding a bunch of domains for me, that are basically just different spellings of my name. They gave them to me this year. I only want to keep one and I want to dump the rest. I was thinking of selling them on Flippa or somewhere else. What's the best way to do that? What do I put for tagline, notes, etc.? And should I host a $1 auction or a buy it now using the price from an estimator tool? //Thanks for reading submitted by /u/TheSkyPirate [link] [comments]

Facebook remarketing ads no longer running but still active?
by /u/mankytit on November 12, 2019 at 4:47 pm
I've had a fairly simple facebook remarketing campaign running for months now. I recently logged in to check stats and noticed the campaign was no longer serving ads. The campaign was still set to "active" with the green icon, but there had been no ad delivery from the last week. I've double checked billing, and can't find any other notifications or errors. Does anyone have any pointers where else to look and/or how best to resolve this issue? Thanks! submitted by /u/mankytit [link] [comments]

New York regulators have initiated an investigation into a tech entrepreneur's complaint that credit limits for the new Apple Card are based on gender-biased algorithms. The investigation, announced by DFS Superintendent Linda Lacewell, apparently stems from a series of tweets David Heinemeier Hansson posted, revealing that his Apple Card credit limit was 20 times higher than his wife's.

Best books and tools for product research?
by /u/Crazrwire999 on November 12, 2019 at 8:11 am
I have been interested in building an online store and or dropshipping and I would really like to particularly learn the ins and outs of product research. I have read a few books on drop shipping so I think I have a bit of knowledge of what it is in general. The main thing I would really like to learn about is in product research and on effectively finding products or niches that are trending. I would like to read more about product research. I would like any book or article recommendations, and I am also interested in taking any good online courses about it to get more experience. Does anyone know of any good product research tool apart from Google Keywords? submitted by /u/Crazrwire999 [link] [comments]
Are you posting your Black Friday sale on deals sites? Why or why not?
by /u/lp32 on November 12, 2019 at 6:33 am
I'm promoting a fairly new store and hoping to use Black Friday as a way to increase brand awareness and maybe even drive some backlinks. I'm creating SEO-optimized content and running paid spend, but I'm also tempted to submit my promo code to deals sites. Has anyone done this? If so, how did it work out for you? Did any of these sites drive legitimate traffic and/or sales? (Note: I'm totally cool with revenue sharing if the coupon sites want to use affiliate or something similar.) Did the backlinks help your SEO at all? What about subreddits for deals and discounts? If you've used that, did it help? Thanks in advance for your insights. submitted by /u/lp32 [link] [comments]

Shanghai Customs have been holding my urgently needed shipment
by /u/allusernamesBtaken on November 11, 2019 at 11:21 pm
Halfway each year I buy a shitload of products to sell during Q4 of each year. These contain lithium batteries, so they're a sensitive/dangerous commodity to ship. Now this shipment has been held by the Shanghai customs for the Shanghai customs for the past 9 days (there was a lot of delay in production so I could only then ship them out). This is because they found a bunch of items containing a knife. This knife I told the factory to ship seperately which they didn't. The customs tells my forwarder the goods are restricted from movement because of the CIIE expo in Shanghai. This expo ended last friday but there's still no word on the status. Now I'm absolutely shitting bricks because customers have been pre-ordering since October 1st and still nobody has received their goods. We're far past the promised shipping time by now. The fact that I only sell during this time of year is puts a lot on the line unfortunately. Does anyone have any experience with whatsoever or is perhaps in the same situation? How long does this sort of thing take, especially if they legitimately found a problem with my cargo? Anything at all I can do? The plan right now is to remove the knives and have the cargo exported from Hong Kong for good measure (far less strict legislation regarding the already sensitive cargo). TLDR: Shanghai customs is holding my shipment and I have no idea what to expect or how to solve it. submitted by /u/allusernamesBtaken [link] [comments]

Reviews of Sellbrite?
by /u/michaeltieso on November 11, 2019 at 4:34 pm
I'm considering trying out Sellbrite. Anyone here that uses it can share their experience? I'm concerned that since their acquisition they seem to be in the dark. They still have a banner about it but it happened in April. A lot could be going on in the background but it's hard to really know. Their Twitter I think is just automatically pushing out the same articles they've had for a while. sellbrite.com for anyone curious. submitted by /u/michaeltieso [link] [comments]

So Paypal lost another customer today...
by /u/enc-nyc on November 11, 2019 at 3:08 pm
Everyone's aware about new Paypal policies about fees. They simply steal them now. Over the weekend a customer bought a $1600 product from me, and oops, it's discontinued. I try to keep site updated pricewise/availability wise the best way I can. Not in this case though. Factory didn't notify about this one being disco. Sometimes people are hunting for those discontinued models and buying them with hope they still exist somewhere and in year I have a few sales of this nature ("I've been searching for this everywhere, found it here and paid"). Well, lost $50+ dollars just like that. Called PP. They won't be doing anything about it. Of course. 'Sorry' they said. So, yes, I'm sorry too, but Paypal is no longer accepted on my site. P.S. A part of the problem is also PP doesn't have a 'authorized' state so I can decide myself if I'm charging transaction or not. It just charges right away. Lady from PP told me it's actually possible but didn't explain how. At this moment I'm really pissed on PP and won't be digging into this, but if someone can confirm authorization/charge flow possible with them, I'd look into this in the future.

Anyone ever dealt with a “product unsatisfactory” chargeback 4-5 months after a item was delivered? We have a 30 day return period in which this customer never contacted us and disputed roughly 3.5 months later. Concerned that if we lose after disputing he could probably also keep the item. What say you.. submitted by /u/FlippingAtx [link] [comments]
