  • Pre-launch question about email capture and validation?
    by /u/blainiac89 on July 11, 2020 at 2:13 am

    I'm planning on opening an e-commerce site soon. I've had only failures in the past, mainly due to 'perfecting' the site instead of figuring out how to get customers. I am going to build my site (with a product I make myself) and want to validate my product via Facebook ads. I want to bring them to my site and see how many add items to their cart and attempt to checkout. When they do that, I want to have a popup telling them that we haven't launched yet, but I'll give them a 40% off coupon when we launch. I was wondering, would it be better to just have a 'coming soon' landing page to try to get their email when they first get to the site, or would it be better to see if if they make it to the 'end' of the sales process before initiating it? Any other big red flags you see, or would you do it differently? submitted by /u/blainiac89 [link] [comments]

  • [Canada] Business registration/customs
    by /u/catykat on July 11, 2020 at 1:14 am

    ​ Hello, My mom runs an export business from the Philippines and has done exporting to US/UK/Japan. I did not really think of putting their product here in Canada until this year. To start off, I am still learning and still don't know a LOT of things doing/starting a business here. Basically, I have a supplier already (my mother) and was wondering if anyone can advise me on the following: ​ We are still figuring out how to bring items here in Ontario. We are starting to bring 10-15 items here first and store it in a mini-warehouse so it won't be a lot. My question is, what do I need to know about customs and such and pickup? My mother usually has a buying agent already so she is not quite particular about customs/particularities in countries. We will know a lot more in the coming weeks as now we are just focusing on the logistics of the product. The business name I want is already taken but inactive (government of canada nuans website). It says in the nuans website that I need to contact the owner of that business for consent but can't find any details online. Can the government of Canada provide the contact info of that business? This might be stupid but is there any difference between registering your business provincially versus federal? I'm under the assumption I can only offer my products within the province if I register provincially or is it not the case with online shops? This is my problem with #3 where the same business name (inactive business) is registered. Perhaps it's okay if it's registered in a different province? Thank you very much! submitted by /u/catykat [link] [comments]

  • How Personal Post-Purchase Videos Increase Conversions
    by Katrina McKinnon on July 10, 2020 at 11:41 am

    Many eCommerce businesses undervalue the effects of engaging with customers beyond a purchase. They fail to see the importance of following up with shoppers or thanking them. This is unfortunate as positive engagement leads to shoppers returning to ‘friendly’ stores. It’s even more regrettable when you consider that there’s an easy and fast way of The post How Personal Post-Purchase Videos Increase Conversions appeared first on eCommerceFuel.

  • Using my shopify site for B2B
    by /u/psych0hans on July 10, 2020 at 11:13 am

    Hi guys, I currently run a shopify store and also do drop shipping for other businesses. I.e. they give me orders and I ship the goods for them. Can I create business accounts for them so they can directly order form my website, rather than calling me and placing the order that way? Each of them would have their own discounts and rules for shipping. Do I need a CRM for this or can I just integrating it into shopify? submitted by /u/psych0hans [link] [comments]

  • Drop shipping โ€” but not for profit?
    by /u/thememegrill on July 10, 2020 at 6:29 am

    This might be an odd situation. I want to be able to create and list custom products (mostly stickers, maybe t-shirts, etc.) for customers to buy from a printing company, but the thing is that I don’t want it to be connected financially to myself at all due to not wanting to monetize or take advantage of users. Essentially, I’m looking for something like Zazzle or TeeSpring but without the profit margin or setting up an online store. Easy for people to use and order what they want, but hands-off and without me “monetizing.” Are there any websites that could do that? Or am I limited to the not user-friendly option, “here’s the file, upload it and order it yourself at xyz website.” submitted by /u/thememegrill [link] [comments]

  • Commission preference question
    by /u/pixobit on July 10, 2020 at 3:42 am

    I'm building a marketplace system, and ran into a question of preference regarding the comission that I'm trying to get right. So the basic idea is that the admin can set a fixed price or a percentage for the commission on every sale, however what popped in my mind, is what if someone wants to set comission based on the category as well. How likely is it that you would require such a feature? Or if there's something else you'd like to be able to set regarding the comission. Really curious about all of your opinions, thank you. submitted by /u/pixobit [link] [comments]

  • Looking for seller software
    by /u/jn530 on July 9, 2020 at 11:11 pm

    Hey all, looking for some recommendations. The company I am trying to get off the ground is really small, looking for a couple recommendations since we don't have a lot of resources. We are mostly selling products we've sourced from manufacturers and ship out of our own warehouse (it's really a couple storage units). Basically I am looking for a way to simplify. Currently on Amazon, eBay, Shopify, application pending for Walmart. What were you solving for when you picked whatever software you use? Like what business needs? What did you ultimately choose? I'm pretty confident in the selling platforms themselves, it's more the tools to manage them. Thanks! submitted by /u/jn530 [link] [comments]
