  • Dutch E-commerce Site Owners - Let's Collaborate and Improve Together!
    by /u/edmcatman on June 12, 2024 at 8:15 am

    In the spirit of "dare to ask," I'm looking for fellow Dutch e-commerce site owners. The goal of this post is to review each other's webshops, learn from each other's pain points, and optimize our sites together. I personally use WooCommerce, but any platform with challenges is welcome. Preference is for Dutch speakers for easier communication, but English is also fine. submitted by /u/edmcatman [link] [comments]

  • What's your experience with Midjourney for generating product and models photography?
    by /u/xenstar1 on June 12, 2024 at 7:34 am

    So I came across this course that claims to teach you how to create AI models and combine them with Photoshop. The results look pretty amazing - https://snipboard.io/pakMwb.jpg I'm thinking about buying the course, but I'm not sure if it's worth the investment. Has anyone else used midjourney to generate AI models for their brands and using in the paid ads? Does it really work or is it just too good to be true? I'd love to hear some feedback before deciding whether to buy it or not. submitted by /u/xenstar1 [link] [comments]

    My clients GMC Shipping and returns settings show 'Shipping settings are being handled by WooCommerce' as there a the WooCommerce API link. However: Beneath this however there is a section stating 'To show products to customers in all the countries you sell in, add your shipping information for the following countries All products are flagged for 'Missing shipping information, Add shipping information in Merchant Center so customers know the delivery time and cost' is the solution to this to simply add in Shipping settings manually for each country that mirror/are the same as WooCommerce? submitted by /u/Sandforddd [link] [comments]

  • Looking for critique or suggestions on a commerce/eCommerce/inventory system that I want to implement at a struggling computer reseller store and IT shop
    by /u/tarnok on June 11, 2024 at 10:54 pm

    Hi everyone! I am helping out at a company that buys/fixes/repairs and resells PCs, laptops and servers either from offlease or custom orders. For reselling they primarily use ebay, facebook marketplace, kiji adds or direct email orders from business contacts that know the business over the last decade. They have a small set of reliable customers that come back. There is no online storefront. there is no actual brick and mortar storefront, but walk-ins come all the time from local kijiji or facebook ads and then it is a scramble to look for the machines to sell and either make clunky invoices from google sheets, manually entering everything or use our bank CC/debit card reader to accept card payments and print a quick receipt with the unit details. There is a storage area for units and a tech workshop filled to the brim with parts and units and absolutely zero inventory system/management of where everything is or comes. There is no managment of when stock comes in and when stock goes out we're lucky to even update it across our storefronts save for a place liek eBay that automatically does it. It is amazing the business continues to run. I have decided enough is enough and I am going to try anbd fix this What I need: -Customer CRM and project management with a online storefront and local POS all synced across the other store channels such as eBay so we can co-currently sell through our website, emails or keep selling the same stock on eBay all the while being able to see what stock we have and where its going. What I think I should do: I heard about Bigcommerce and think it might fit the bill for inventory and storefront management across the channels as well as make an actual ONLINE store and we can sync with ebay while sending local customers to our online storefront. I would then integrate that up with Monday.com CRM to help with project managangment when we get personal orders from customers from emails and, help build custom servers/PCs as that sometiems takes a week or two waiting on custom parts being delievered. I would also need a way to make or register barcodes for machines and random inventory to help easily scan and sell/manage inventory them and I thought the Kodbar app might be useful there? Am I thinking too big? is this impossible? Would shopify be better? Thanks for reading! submitted by /u/tarnok [link] [comments]

  • Sports Handicap Business
    by /u/FingerFantastic361 on June 11, 2024 at 10:14 pm

    Another odd business post from me! I’ve been given the opportunity to help launch a sports betting handicap company. To keep it simple, it will be a monthly subscription based model to get different levels of picks. There’s no gambling on the website, it’s just suggestions based off of a model that’s been testing for over 10 years. My question: it seems like Shopify does not allow any sort of sports betting, even if it’s just picks. Would word press be the best option? I need to also find a good subscription model for (high risk?) sales. We do have an attorney that’s looking over all of the legal disclaimers but this whole industry still seems a bit weird to me. From what I’ve gathered, we won’t need a gaming licenses since there’s no placement of bets on our website. Anyways, anything helps! Would love to hear others experience with this industry as well and how it worked out for them. submitted by /u/FingerFantastic361 [link] [comments]

  • Anyone ever heard of PattyEcomm
    by /u/pinki-me on June 11, 2024 at 8:52 pm

    So i got the message from a guy on ig about helping with ecommerce. He says he will a 1 on 1 coaching program with me where he builds stuff for me and then hands it to me. I couldn't find anything online about this guy. His IG is since 2018 but doesn't have much and some of the pics are showing off but its not even well done. Everything he says tho makes sense. I asked him to show me some proof about his legitimacy and he sent me some videos showing brand new shopify stores that are not done and i could do in a day, and his telegram chats with other ppl which i didnt even see inside of, just a list of ppl he is messaging. But ya, i just dont get how his account has been around since 2018 and i cant find any reviews on him. submitted by /u/pinki-me [link] [comments]

  • Marketing a small, novel electronic device. Need assistance with how to proceed.
    by /u/epice500 on June 11, 2024 at 8:07 pm

    I have built a small, novel electronic device which works with software I wrote for PC’s. I have finished having it certified, and I also have a patent being filed for it right now, with funding I managed to get (for patenting specifically). Until recently, I have been working with a small marketing agency that promised to deliver assets to use in the marketing of my product, as well as strategy and analysis. I was very disappointed in the quality of the assets delivered, even after revision (frankly looked like a mediocre high school marketing project), so I ended my contract with them. Now I am trying to figure out how to market it myself. As far as I can tell, this involves producing assets for social media and other websites plus maybe a video, then figuring out how to target the right people using advertising services from Facebook, Google etc. There are a few paths I can see: I can DIY this, producing the assets myself and posting them using ecommerce marketing solutions mentioned above. I can hire someone to create the assets for me, then do the setup/advertising myself. I can hire someone to do both, but I fear this will be too expensive. I can seek out a better, more reputable agency to assist me, however I am feeling reluctant to do this based on my previous experience. The product is somewhat niche, I haven’t been able to find anything else like it online, and the patentability analysis my lawyers conducted concluded that it is novel. Therefore, I believe that special care will have to be taken when marketing this. I am just at a bit of a loss as to how to proceed with the marketing. My experience is mostly in technology, I know some basic things about marketing and graphic design but not much else. I should also mention my website is already mostly built and am about a month or two away from my patent getting filed and the device being ready to launch. Any assistance/suggestions with how to proceed are greatly appreciated. If you require any further information, I am happy to provide it. Thank you! submitted by /u/epice500 [link] [comments]

  • React Frontend, best way to handle the backend and managenent?
    by /u/Burning_Cinder on June 11, 2024 at 7:17 pm

    Hello there! I work for a company that got a deal with a small clothing store. I was asked to create the entire ecommerce and search for possible solutions. I was considering at first WP + Woocommerce, but I wanted more info about ways of doing it with ReactJs. I thought maybe React + Shopify API or BigCommerce, but I'm completely lost about the pricing. So I came here to ask more about their usage, specifically all the costs that it could generate for my employer or their client. What exactly would have to be paid? One-time fees or monthly fees? Any specific things that should be mentioned to my company before they make a decision on any of these solutions? They do not have any previous knowledge of these solutions, so I would need to be really prepared before convincing them and moving on to the actual development part. Thank you so much for your time! submitted by /u/Burning_Cinder [link] [comments]

    I’m at the stage where growth and driving traffic to my site is the next step, but I’m more or less banging my head against a wall trying to strategize the best way, or even how, to do this. I ran across a consulting firm that claims to be able to help by providing my brand a curated strategy for growth for the next 12 months. It’s $6000 for the year. I have to do the work and they provide the strategy abased on Analytics. I like what they are saying but don’t have the experience hiring firms like this.
