The most exciting and important part of the year for ecommerce sellers is coming! It's time to shake up your operations and analyze if you are truly ready for the end of the year. With so many dates coming up, it is important to establish a few strategies to strive to make a better profit and also, to satisfy your customers. As we all know a happy customer is a returning customer.



In 4Psite, we thought about this particular time of the year and decided to share three steps that we find imperative to apply from now on. Our internal talk led to the following:



When Mariah says it's time: IT IS TIME!


1- Good time management makes happy teams

4P believes in managing time by centralizing and automating the daily processes that makes the whole picture easier..

At this time of the year, the focus is the essentials. So, if you are using our system right now, you know you can rely on automation so you can focus on what's really necessary.

They say time is money, right?


2 - Poor time management creates stress and headaches

Through the period from November to December, it's normal to receive requests of returns, refunds and exchanges.

When trying to make these processes stress-free to the customer and to the seller, it's absolutely imperative to focus on efficiency.

4Psite is not just focusing on improvements of the system itself but we are also very serious about connecting and communicating with our customers. So we are sharing this golden advice with you: though the end of September and beginning of October, you should already have everything ready to roll. Planning is the way to go right now: don't lose any more time. Sit down and share your experiences as a team and define the points that you need to give more attention to.


3 - Get ready for the reverse logistics

By setting smart goals that are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time-oriented, you will get a better internal experience when you receive the common tasks for this time of the year. Returns, refunds and reverse logistics requests are common to arise at this part of the year. Be prepared to make it as smooth as possible to your internal team and to your final customer. This can be very stressful to do, unless you already have automation through your order management system. 4Psite provides the full experience, from pulling the order to the eventual return and inventory correction. This process needs to be efficient and satisfying in both ways, so make sure that you got it all!

The best thing about centralizing so many steps of your e-commerce business in one-place is that you have more control over operations and of course, an adaptable workflow.

Big seasons are coming! Halloween, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas are just around the corner, so we ask you: are you prepared for the 3 ultimate strategies to be successful in this second half of the year?





1 - Organization

Organize everything by keeping an eye on inventory - enough availability is the key to sell seasonal products too.

Clear your warehouse once a year, make sure that your products are accurate to the records you have on 4Psite. Physical numbers must match the actual information as the value of quantity on hand.

If you have any leftovers, why don't you promote a clearance? It is just one way to boost an opportunity to your final customer and helps you keep your store up to date.

4Psite's inventory works automatically once you inform the quantity on hand. All other numbers will adjust according to the actions such as sold and delivered. Automation makes everything organized so you can worry only about profiting.


2 - Trustworthy suppliers

When a season approaches, many customers will want to buy similar products - with motives. It is possible to encounter some scarcity of goods when these dates come along. Have a trustworthy supplier that will provide you with the enough quantity you need to honor the offer.

4Psite has a purchase order module that will assist you on that: create the P.O.s directly with the data the system keeps and email it to your supplier. Once you have an active published P.O., you will see the expected quantity appearing, just so you can know how much and when you will receive the products you need to keep your company rolling.


3 - Predictability

Avoid surprises along the way especially when it comes to certain holidays and dates that can give you a big headache if something goes wrong. Make sure you know how much you have, how much you need to invest and how predictable this years' sales will be. 4Psite has an inventory, a purchase orders module and also a wide range of reports as an auxiliary to your plans. Minimize any post sale trouble by also implementing the use of returns and refunds - and put them on your roadmap! It is important to see the big picture all year long, but most importantly at special occasions such as Halloween, Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Cyber Monday and Christmas.


If you already have online stores and need to optimize your time by automating and fulfilling your orders, contact us at 4Psite today! We can work with you to find the best workflow and help you throughout the process.

From the beginning to the loop closing, 4Psite is the ultimate cloud based system that will centralize your operations as a harmonized unit.

4Psite is always attentive to the news and trends when it comes to selling online. The world has changed in the past few years and if it felt like a new perspective back then, now it is a blunt reality: Buying and selling online might be easier for both parties. We listed three points to encourage you to go online today!



  • Prices are dropping

According to a study by Adobe Digital Price Index, prices are dropping for the eight consecutive month, completing an almost 2% drop. This news comes as a competitive and great choice to customers that were once more keen to buy in a physical store. You can sell to a wider audience if you analyze the pros of it - it's also convenient to buy in a few clicks and receive it at your door. Some store owners that are operating both at physical locations and online can offer coupons and better deals at their ecommerce business to give an incentive on this modality of selling. If the prices are better online, the client will prefer the most convenient option.



  • Automated replenishment + original strategy

Mostly beauty and pet supplies are on the rise online. In this article about a beauty brand, they explain their strategy of being curators of their products just so the client can acquire what they really need in their routine. Then, they offer the option of an automatic replenishment, so the customer can receive the goods from time to time without needing to place new orders every time. Subscriptions on medications and vitamins are also very common in the online environment. More than just a product, set a strategy that it's different from the usual.


  • Sustainability

If you have a sustainable solution, this is the time to get your game on. According to this article, two-thirds of consumers decide on a purchase at least partially based on whether the product is environmentally friendly, and that number rises with younger audiences. Meanwhile, 50% of product growth in CPGs comes from sustainable products; consumers are willing to spend more on products when marketed as such.


If you already have stores online and need to optimize your time by automating and fulfilling your orders, contact us at 4Psite today. We can work with you to find the best workflow and help you throughout the process. From the beginning to the loop closing, 4Psite is the ultimate cloud based system that will centralize your operations as a harmonized unit. —--------------------------------------------------------------------
