It doesn't matter how big or small your company currently is. The key to longevity in the ecommerce environment is to spare time to profit in other aspects.
It seems obvious when you look into the big picture, but how are you supposed to know what to prioritize? We always say that automation is the point and the tricks we are about to present to you are related to this fundamental concept.
You can surely vary the ways and channels you put your products on. It is symptomatical to sell more when you put items on different shelves. Every marketplace and store has its own set of rules and perks . Offer your customers the chance to choose where to buy from so you create a demand for your products. Centralizing and capturing those orders in a single place avoids the effort to open several tabs which in an every-day operation can be time consuming and cause mistakes. You are still able to identify where the orders are coming from in a much more functional way.
Intelligent inventory management
Inventory counts are inevitable once in a while. Imagine having to count every single item for accurate count, every single week or even every day? In a piece of paper? Phew! Your business needs to flow in a more natural and decisive way on a daily basis, you can't lose that much time to control what's coming and going. That's why we strongly recommend managing inventory in the most efficient way possible: count your physical quantities when you put them into the system and avoid counting continuously. Automatically, get the results of allocation and true availability. If you want to manage expected items that are coming from your suppliers, your inventory can be even better - adjusted, accurate and mistake-proof.
TIP 03 SHIPPING
The shipping phase - is one of the most important parts of the process. Closing the loop in the same application takes a huge amount of time out of your back. Work with several carriers and negotiate the rates directly with them. If you have more options, you can always choose where to create a label according to your needs in that particular case. If you are also able to have rules that will auto-populate in the screen according to your own created parameters, this will also save a few more minutes of your day-to-day operations that in the sum of the year will be a surprisingly big number.
