Top 10 Best B2B eCommerce Solutions
Posted by Alejandro Vasquez on 16 September 2019 10:00 AM

No two businesses are alike. The needs of your online store may differ greatly from others, and that can even include competitors in the same industry. That is why when you are trying to choose the right eCommerce solution for your site, you must always consider how well the solution meets your business’s specific needs.

This is also something you should keep in mind if your business caters to other businesses. In fact, B2B stores may need some very different features and services than B2C ones due to the difference in their clientele. With that in mind, here is some information on ten of the best B2B eCommerce solutions out there. They are separated between apps and platforms, and they are listed in no particular order.

Fast Shipping Strategies for Multi-Channel Sellers
Posted by Rachel Go on 10 September 2019 10:00 AM

Fast shipping programs are booming across marketplaces. Walmart 2-Day Delivery, Amazon Prime and eBay Guaranteed Delivery are just a few that provide both fast and free delivery. When you compete with convenient shipping and service, you can avoid price wars and keep your margins healthy. However, these programs aren’t just popular with marketplaces and sellers; they’re also expected by customers.

Delivery speed and costs are two of the biggest reasons for cart abandonment, meaning that if you’re not offering fast and free shipping, you’re likely to lose out to someone who is.

Fast shipping tags help to boost visibility, attract customers and increase conversions. It’s no wonder they’re everywhere, from Amazon to eBay. But, how can multi-channel sellers achieve fast shipping while juggling everything else? Here are our top strategies. Ready, set, ship.

Accept In-Person Payments with 3dcart POS: Now Compatible with Stripe Terminal
Posted by [email protected] (Jimmy Rodriguez) on 09 September 2019 10:00 AM

There are unique challenges involved when running a physical store side-by-side with an eCommerce website. It can be difficult to synchronize inventory across online and offline sales, and inconvenient to manage separate payment systems for a brick-and-mortar store and an online store — but if you have the right eCommerce platform, POS (Point of Sale) setup, and a payment provider that supports both, it can be easy.

Retailers who sell both online and in person can streamline their business by using a POS system that connects with their eCommerce platform. 3dcart is a great example, as the platform includes a POS module that automatically synchronizes customers and inventory across both offline and online channels. 3dcart POS includes all the necessary features for smoothing your operations between brick-and-mortar and online retail, and recently we've upgraded it for compatibility with Stripe Terminal, a programmable point-of-sale product aimed at eCommerce businesses and software platforms that want to accept in-store payments.

Posted by Laura Harvsey on 08 September 2019 10:00 AM

If your business relies on customer and client appointments, you need to make sure they are easily accessible. Using an online appointment scheduler is a great way to do that: your customers will be able to see exactly which appointments are available and book them instantly.

Unfortunately, appointments are often overlooked in the e-commerce process with companies tending to focus on marketing and outreach. That's a shame because an inaccessible (or confusing) appointment system can wreck an otherwise great advertising campaign.

For that reason, an appointment scheduler is among the most important free business tools you should have at your company’s disposal. In this article, we'll break down the key benefits that an appointment scheduler can give you.

Enhance Your Online Business with New Zapier Integrations
Posted by [email protected] (Christianna Cannon) on 06 September 2019 10:00 AM

Smart business owners are always looking for advantages, and anything that saves time and effort is a big one. Tons of apps have been developed with this exact purpose in mind, bringing convenient methods of organization, management, and much more. Central to this ideal of efficiency is automation, in which software handles a task rather than a human worker.

Automation doesn't just save time, it also ensures every action is done consistently and eliminates the possibility of human error. Running a business often involves numerous small, repetitive tasks, and letting a computer handle these will increase productivity by allowing human workers to focus on other responsibilities that a computer simply can't manage.

The more options for automation you have, the more ideas you can come up with for improving your workflow. Zapier is a platform that vastly expands your automation capabilities by allowing you to create connections between apps — an event in one app causes an action in another.

10 E-Commerce Web Design Tips to Drive Sales and Increase Conversions
Posted by Vanshika Gairola on 03 September 2019 10:00 AM

Over the years, there has been continued rapid growth in e-commerce; and it’s all thanks to technology and the internet. It’s easier and more fun to order things from our mobile phones while relaxing on a couch. But, this growth isn’t entirely positive for everyone. With this growing trend, the competition is also increasing at a great pace. And, some sites are lacking big time.

What if you wanted to buy something you like that’s also on a good discount? But alas! The site is too complicated to finish the purchase. You’ll probably want to avoid all the hassle and visit another site with better navigation.

An average consumer wants a convenient shopping experience. Web design is more than just using pretty pictures; all the visual elements should be able to work together to give an amazing user experience. Your online store’s design goal should be more conversions, more sales and increased repeat customers.

Factors that affect conversions are related to how your e-commerce site is designed. If it is easy to find the information you need, or if the website communicates a trustworthy brand image, it all depends on the design. You cannot ignore any part of the user journey. Every step that the user takes on your website, from the initial landing page through checkout, should be carefully designed with the final purchase in mind.

Today, we will be discussing the best practices in e-commerce web design which you can use to up your game and reach your business goals.

Make Navigation Effortless with 3dcart’s New “Mega Menu Builder” App!
Posted by Jessica Grioua on 02 September 2019 10:00 AM

Navigation is the crux of your online store’s user experience, with its quality either making or breaking a sale. Obviously, you want to make sure that it’s as easy as possible for customers to navigate your site to find the exact products they’re looking to buy. In order to get the job done right, a good menu will include categories and sub-categories that are organized properly and in a way that’s pleasing to the eye. If your store has a decent amount of categories, sub-categories and product types in general, a drop-down menu is probably your first go-to for organizing it all into a condensed manner.

But, regular drop-down menus aren’t perfect. Typically, they take the form of long lists of categories that often force users to scroll down to see all of the options within it. They tend to look unattractive, and take away from the overall feel of your site that you’ve taken so long to perfect and craft. At 3dcart, we understand how important navigation is for online store owners, so we’re happy to announce that we’ve developed an application to help you create an advanced navigation menu for your website: The Mega Menu Builder.
