  • Shipping Scale Recommendations
    by /u/idgabax on September 29, 2020 at 5:12 pm

    Currently I am using the Dymo M25 scale for all more shipping needs. One thing I really like is that it hooks up and works with Endicia/Stamps.com. The big issue is that the unit keeps going into sleep mode and you have to unplug it to wake it back up so that it works with the software. Going into holiday I fear this will be too frustrating to deal with. ​ That being said does anyone have any personal recommendations for shipping scales that would work with Endicia/Stamps.com? If not is there any product you might swear by? submitted by /u/idgabax [link] [comments]

  • Is this idea dead in the water? Need your thoughts
    by /u/BoopTheSnoot12 on September 29, 2020 at 5:07 pm

    Hi lads — really need your thoughts on this My friend is trying to get me to develop an app but I have my doubts, he hasn't been dropshipping long (maybe a month). He found a database of all the shopify store url's and their global rank and wants me to make it into aa web app you can access. I don't really how it could be useful, would you guys be able to find a use for this? I guess we could track the page changes, review changes, track them in general. But again I'm not in the space. Would kindly like to hear your thoughts. submitted by /u/BoopTheSnoot12 [link] [comments]

  • The Potential of Real-time Payments for Ecommerce
    by Mike Eckler on September 29, 2020 at 4:42 pm

    Real-time payments are immediate transfers of funds from a payor to a payee. The topic is trending and for good reason. The promise of immediate settlements and instant access to funds is compelling, especially for merchants frustrated by their bank's policy of holds and reserves.

  • Importing products from BigCommerce to Facebook catalog
    by /u/mermaidbae on September 29, 2020 at 4:08 pm

    Been struggling for a few days now, after some struggle we were able to connect BC to FB and got our products in the catalog manager. Problem is when importing, the SKUs and categories didn't import over. Instead of our own SKUs there seems to be a random one assigned by FB. How would I go about fixing this? I've tried deleting the catalog and reuploading but same thing happens. It makes sorting them into sets and stuff really difficult. Thanks! submitted by /u/mermaidbae [link] [comments]

  • Need Advice on Product Categories
    by /u/MaintenanceMental351 on September 29, 2020 at 3:44 pm

    Our company has been wholesaling clothing since 2001 but more recently entered the B2C space because of the pandemic. Would you advise that we separate our products into two or three very different websites considering the stark contract in our wholesale catalog? I feel like the extremely diverse product categories don't help create synergy between the products and I'm not sure if there is any adverse effect related to that. LINK For example, we specialize in Tie Dye Beach Clothing, Ankara (African) Fashion, and a sustainable clothing line which I imagine all have different end users (small overlap) . submitted by /u/MaintenanceMental351 [link] [comments]

  • Rally raises $17M to expand a platform that lets you invest in (but not buy) collectibles
    by Ingrid Lunden on September 29, 2020 at 1:19 pm

    When people ponder the investment opportunity around collectibles, they probably think about things like wine auctions, sales of very expensive, old cars or baseball cards, or maybe a pocket watch that made an unlikely appearance on an antiques TV show, hoping that their piece of treasured tat might one day also be worth millions.

  • Mall Owners Become Retailers Amidst the Pandemic

Over the years, they have brought in more and more restrictions on how sellers can request reviews and the overall message is clear: we don’t really want you to do it.

  • How to make "google friendly" product name and url title?
    by /u/RaidenHUN on September 29, 2020 at 12:27 pm

    Hi guys! How to make Google friendly search friendly product names and url titles. My main issue e is that if I have a product ... For example and "Usb C to micro USB adapter" should I wrote down every combination in the title and in the url so that it will get better SEO? For example the product is an USB C to Micro USb cable So my title will be: " USB C to Micro USB adapter title, Micro USB to USB C cable" so it basically constants everything in two combination. And my url title is: " Xy.com/products/usb-c-to-micro-usb-adapter-micro-usb-to-usbc-cable." Or Im completely wrong? How should I go about it? Thanks for the help!

The TextMeAnywhere solution helps make the associated logistics to service curbside easier to execute for small businesses.

  • Payments to International Supplier
    by /u/zerobullshit on September 29, 2020 at 11:03 am

    Hi! My friend and I are taking a class on the entrepreneurship and we are keen to study e-commerce and understand how trust is formed. Last year we had a terrible experience ordering custom tailored wedding suits from a chinese supplier. The supplier had a slick website and we were able to enter our measurements, cut, style and fabric and order online. The payment method was a bit sketchy (Western Union) but we wend along with the payment and awaited our new suits ⏰. The suits arrived pretty quickly, however there was an issues…somehow ALL of the suits had the same goofy lining that only ONE of us had requested. You know that guy that likes wearing crazy shirts even when it’s not crazy shirt night? Yeah, that’s him 🕺. Unfortunately, there was no way to send the suits back and get our money back or have the suits changed. At least it made for interesting wedding pics.. It got us wondering, how do you guys come to trust new international providers and handle the payments to them? Do you use Letters of Credits, Escrow services, insurance of some kind? Samples? Calls? What would your advice be for getting started with importing internationally, and what do you wish was done to make it easier? Feel free to answer here or through this typeform (should take less than 2 minutes): https://me544547.typeform.com/to/JHaTJyWe If we get enough responses we will share the analysis back with the sub 🙂 submitted by /u/zerobullshit [link] [comments]

    Shipping has long been one of the more antiquated, and least technological, segments in the world of commerce, with its physical aspects — rooted in massive cargo tankers, giant fleets of aircraft and trucks, and trains of linked-up containers — underscoring some of the more obvious analogue attributes of the business.

  • Webshop with humor
    by /u/tijmenvenhorst on September 29, 2020 at 9:16 am

    I have a question: I'm the owner of a Dutch webshop (we sell extravagant shoes) and I always try to make people laugh a bit with our communication as well. Up until now we mainly do this via our social media and offline communication (Brochures etc), but I want to launch a new website that, next to being a good webshop, also integrates humor. Buying from us has to be a fun experience from A to Z. But I'm still struggling to form a new website that does that in a good way without being annoying or just plain stupid. Do you guys perhaps have suggestions of webshops you find fun to shop at that I can look at for inspiration? submitted by /u/tijmenvenhorst [link] [comments]

  • Should I put my prices up?
    by /u/poetryandart on September 29, 2020 at 4:43 am

    Hey guys, just wanted to say thanks so much for your feedback on my website - I've implemented a lot of the changes people suggested and it's definitely been an improvement. Lately I'm wondering whether I'm under-charging for my portraits. I started out on Etsy so made my prices quite competitive because of the high amount of competition. But when I look at local (NZ) artists' prices for commissions they're around double what I charge. I'm charging: $41USD for a single person portrait, $51 for a couple $58 for a family. Should I increase my prices and by how much? What price would you be willing to pay for a portrait like this and what are some factors I should take into consideration when adjusting prices? Here's my website - note that prices are different on there because they're in NZ dollars - link I'm asking on here rather than an art sub because I'd like some opinions of people who aren't artists! submitted by /u/poetryandart [link] [comments]
