Guest post by Helen Cartwright The ecommerce industry continues to grow rapidly. In 2019, global ecommerce sales hit the $25 trillion mark. Customers are beginning to see the convenience of buying online, and they are even taking things a notch higher; they are shopping right from their smartphones. Many newbies want to tap into this market but have no idea where to start. If this is you, I have good news—creating an ecommerce business has never been this easy. Is creating an online store hard? Selling products online using online arbitrage is not a mean feat. However, technology has made it simpler to build an online store faster than you could have ever imagined a couple of years ago. There was a time when building an ecommerce store was extremely hard. You were required to hire someone who knew how to code to create the site for you. These types of people cost money. There is also no guarantee that the guy you hire will do a good job. They might build a sub-par site and run away with your money! Nowadays, you can do [...]

AWS Ecommerce: How l Started Selling on Amazon

By |2019-01-09T14:58:21+00:00January 26th, 2017|Categories: Amazon, News, Tips|Comments Off on AWS Ecommerce: How l Started Selling on Amazon

I never intended to sell online. Online retail seemed like the world of big companies, cut-price importers and small businesses trying to make a quick buck by any means. I never imagined I would be carving out my own little niche in that world. And yet, this month marks two years since I started doing just that. Let’s start with how I got here. It all began with needing to make space and a little extra money. My lease was running out and soon after that insurance would be due on my car - my first, a cute little hatchback perfect for city drives, but insurance is steep regardless when you are a new driver. Moving was more urgent. Anyone who has ever moved knows how much work it takes to sort and pack and ship and unpack everything, and how it’s also a good time to declutter sort out all that stuff that has accumulated over the years living in one place. For me, moving meant I had to finally part with a few of my books. I’ve loved books ever since I was [...]

You’ve just completed a sale and your buyer said your service was awesome — but the item itself was less than stellar. What do you do now? Well, if you’re really dead serious about improving on that aspect, then follow these handy tips courtesy of FeedbackExpress. Know What Your Ultimate Goal Is When faced with a negative product review, the first instinct is to make it go away. However, that can be a super long process — and not always with a good success rate.

Where You Want Your Feedback to Go There are two ways you can get a hold of your buyer: Email them directly Post a comment on their Amazon review.

Unless you’re selling something truly timeless and niche market-y, then you’ll need a rotating inventory to keep up with supply and demand. SellerExpress really likes the idea of inventory management software so you don’t have to fiddle around the hard way. In fact, we love it so much, we’ve come up with 5 reasons why you should be getting on it right away. 1. Grab Every Precious Second of Time Time is one of those very few things you can’t put a price tag on. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. But with inventory management software, the automation updates mean you don’t have to spend your time going through the data. Hello, time! And with that extra time, you can do whatever you want with it. We recommend using it to promote and expand your business, but if the links are calling, then pull out your nine-iron and go. 2.
