7 Best Zapier Alternatives for App Connection & Automation
Posted by Alejandro Vasquez on 20 September 2021 10:00 AM

A customer places an order for a product from your online store. You open your Gmail app to see the order form. Then, you open your QuickBooks app and create a new invoice with information from the order form. After that, you open your Google Sheets app to update a spreadsheet with the details.

You likely open several more apps before the order is fulfilled and recorded. Then, you have to do it all over again for your other orders. These are the consequences of running an eCommerce business.

Thanks to Zapier and Zapier alternatives, though, the process does not have to be so tedious and time-consuming.

What is Address Validation and Why Do eCommerce Stores Need It?
Posted by [email protected] (Christianna Cannon) on 15 September 2021 10:00 AM

Long before eCommerce existed, people invented other ways to shop remotely. Physical catalogs have been around for over 200 years and are still popular. Newspapers also have a long history of advertisements that invite shoppers to mail in an order. Even comic books have had mail-order products advertised on the last few pages.

But no matter how much the methods have changed, mail-order shopping has always required a correct shipping address. From newspaper ads to eCommerce, a business needs to know where to ship a customer's order. It sounds like the most obvious thing in the world, doesn't it?

Posted by [email protected] (Jimmy Rodriguez) on 13 September 2021 10:00 AM

Subscription boxes have become incredibly popular over the last several years, both with businesses and consumers. While consumers love them for their specificity and convenience (how nice is it to get all of your dog’s favorite food and snacks sent to you each month automatically?), businesses love subscription boxes because they allow for targeting niche audiences and make monthly sales consistent. Of course, just because subscription boxes are popular doesn’t mean that you can start a business using this model and expect it to automatically succeed.

In order for your subscription box company to really grow and thrive, you have to understand the business model — how it works and why the best companies have so much success.

How to Build a Local eCommerce Presence
Posted by Mike Skoropad on 06 September 2021 10:00 AM

Over the last five years, online transactions have doubled their total retail market share, growing from seven to fourteen percent according to Statista. While the pandemic has certainly accelerated the growth of the eCommerce industry, its growth prior to 2020 suggests that this has simply been a speeding up of the inevitable.

Common wisdom seems to suggest that the shift in consumer behavior towards buying products online is bad news for smaller, local retailers. Proponents of this view say that the rise of eCommerce means that shop proximity is less of a factor in consumers’ buying decisions and that it pits smaller businesses against behemoths like Amazon.

Website Downtime: Why It Happens & Tools for Checking Status
Posted by Alejandro Vasquez on 01 September 2021 10:00 AM

One major advantage that online stores have over brick-and-mortar shops is that they’re always open for business. Anyone can access your site at any time, which is great if you’re trying to attract customers in other time zones. Moreover, the order placement process hums along smoothly without a serious need for constant human supervision. As the old marketing cliché goes, eCommerce business owners can make money in their sleep.

Every eCommerce business owner should be prepared to deal with it. The best way to prepare is to learn more about it, and we can help with that. This in-depth guide offers a crash course on website downtime: what it is, why it happens, and how you can prevent it.
