  • 5 Tips to Get the Most Out of Amazon Vendor Negotiations
    by Rohan Thambrahalli on February 18, 2020 at 7:44 pm

    That time of year is upon us once again, and stress levels for Amazon vendors are starting to build. The arrival of spring means renegotiating your vendor terms with Amazon, which seem to grow stricter year-after-year. However, with more than 50 percent of all Amazon sales coming from third-party sellers, the pressure is also on for the other side of the table.

  • What does it take to have your store automatically forward orders on to a print-on-demand service such as RedBubble?
    by /u/salamanderoil on February 18, 2020 at 5:47 pm

    I am planning on putting together a website. That website will include store section, where users can purchase merchandise, such as t-shirts, coffee cups, and the like. I am not going to actually manufacture or ship the merchandise myself; that will be outsourced to a third-party like RedBubble, CafePress, or similar. Obviously, it would be easy enough to set up a storefront on one of those sites, put a link to it on my site, and call it a day. But I get the feeling that a lot of people will find being sent off to some other site jarring, so I would much rather have a storefront on my own site, where people can order and pay for whatever they want, and then have that order fulfilled by the aforementioned third-party. So, my question is this: how much work would the above setup take to get off the ground? Is there an easy way to have your site automatically forward the order, payment, and shipping details on to the third-party manufacturer? submitted by /u/salamanderoil [link] [comments]

  • Success in Mobile Commerce Requires a Mobile-specific Strategy
    by David Shreni on February 18, 2020 at 3:52 pm

    Ecommerce sites typically have goals for overall revenue and growth. However, it is essential to create mobile-specific goals, too. Roughly half of ecommerce traffic now comes from mobile devices, according to Google. Thus specific metrics for mobile — i.e., conversions, bounce rates — are critical.

  • Financial projections for Business Plan help
    by /u/liveinskin123 on February 18, 2020 at 3:31 pm

    Hello guys, newbie here and very much out of my element, but I want to give this a go anyway. I am currently writing a business plan for a small e-commerce website that I want to make. It will hopefully sell different products like clothing and make-up etc. My issue is that in the financial plan section, there are so many things to work out. For example, if I am projecting my average item value, do I have to do 2 seperate tables ones for clothing and makeup or would I combine all of them into one thats an average of both. Sorry if it seems like a stupid question. If anyone has a guide to financial projections, income statements and cashflow statements it would be amazing.

    If your just starting out and planning on buying a course do not do that. Total waste of money. But that being said. If you go to you can find plenty of free ones that actually have a lot of valuable information with over like 4 hours of tutorials from setting up your store, setting up free shipping. Importing products, and setting up a Facebook page. There is valuable info in courses just not ones u need to pay for. submitted by /u/Youllneverknow94 [link] [comments]

  • Help finding a e-commerce platform for subscription based selling? (Preferably open-source)
    by /u/AtZeroOne on February 18, 2020 at 12:40 pm

    Hello! I'm a decent web-developer, however, I have never done anything with e-commerce and a friend asked if I could help out. Since I'm pretty lost, I would love to hear if anyone here could help me out with some suggestions / ideas. 🙂 These are the requirements I have been told to work with: Subscription based with a limit on people to begin with (E.G. He wants to sell a subscription based product and in the beginning limit it to 200 people, and then if it work raise that to 400, then 600, etc.) Should look like a normal website and not a shop really, he wants to have a website with info and you sign up for this product Like I said, I have never done something like this, but mostly worked with Wordpress or other frameworks before. I'm open for any suggestions, it could be a wordpress plugin someone has used, or an e-commerce platform with built in connections to stripe, paypal, etc. (Since I don't trust building a payment platform I want to use something where I leave the security up to someone else) Thanks in advance!

  • Is it possible to have an Instagram marketed promo link click through to cart that is prepopulated with a specific item/bundle/promo?

    I would like to advertise on Instagram and cut as many steps out of the process of making a purchase as possible especially for first customers. My desire is to have an add that clicks through to a cart populated with a specific promo item where you would select the final quantity, enter purchase info and confirm, rather than going through the act of “shopping.” Is there a better sub for this? submitted by /u/Becoming_A_Lion [link] [comments]

  • Cost effective landing pages
    by /u/starting-stuff on February 18, 2020 at 1:53 am

    What do you guys use to build and operate landing pages for PPC or other marketing campaigns? Are you using functionality built in to your ecomm platforms do you host them externally? I quite like unbounce as an external solution but it's really expensive for what it is. At this point I'm thinking it'd cheaper to throw together a basic CMS to build them myself, or even just hard code them for one offs. Curious to see what you guys do. submitted by /u/starting-stuff [link] [comments]
