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.

The True Cost of Downtime for eCommerce Businesses
Posted by [email protected] (Guest Author) on 01 September 2019 10:00 AM

Every second that your eCommerce website is down equates to money walking out of your virtual storefront. When considering the impact that a downed server has on eCommerce, one of the first examples that comes to mind is Amazon. Just a few years ago, their site was down for around 40 minutes, resulting in approximately $5 million in losses.

Most eCommerce businesses would be ecstatic if they could make in a year a fraction of what Amazon lost in 40 minutes. Still, every lost dollar, customer, or potential connection hurts. Ecommerce companies that experience downtime lose more than just sales. They lose their reputation, diminish their search engine optimization (SEO), and experience efficiency issues. Customers have come to expect that the websites they visit will be up and running 100 percent of the time.

Using a good hosting service can help you reach that goal.

This is something you really need to be careful of when opting for discount hosting solutions. For context, Nathan Finch of Aussie Hosting tracked cheap hosts for downtime issues over a 12 month period and found that cheap shared hosting companies had 3-4 times the downtime instances over dedicated hosts.

Product variations are one of the cornerstones of eCommerce, and it's impossible to shop for certain products without them. Apparel comes in multiple sizes and colors, furniture comes in different wood finishes, bed linens come in different patterns; the list goes on and on. All these variants are great for giving customers more choices, but sometimes product variations can be difficult for online sellers to deal with — especially if you have a large number of them. If you don't manage your product variants properly, your online store can quickly get bogged down.

This guide will explain product variations in depth and how to set them up in your online store, including special cases where a particular variant needs different pricing, has a significantly different weight, or must be tracked separately from the rest of that product's inventory. Product variations are a crucial part of your online store, so it's important to understand them and set them up properly.
