How to Set up WooCommerce Subscription Gifting

Subscriptions can be a fantastic gift option, and with the new WooCommerce Subscriptions Gifting a customer can easily share their love for your store with their friends and family this holiday season. My parents are both in their eighties and are notoriously hard to buy presents for. Giving them anything remotely technological results in a Christmas Day filled with exclamations of ‘How do you turn it on again?’ or ‘What! What! It’s broken!’ So most years Mum just gets her normal gardening gear and Dad gets a bottle of gin; they each have their own interests ‰ However, one year I won the ‘best gift’ award. Historic houses are my parents’ one joint love. While my budget is yet to stretch to buying them the real Downton Abbey , a monthly subscription to the organization that runs sites of interest in the UK, the National Trust , was within reach....

Origin launches protocol for building cheaper decentralized Ubers & Airbnbs

The sharing economy ends up sharing a ton of labor’s earnings with middlemen like Uber and Airbnb, and  $38 million-funded Origin wants the next great two-sided marketplace to be decentralized on the blockchain so drivers and riders or hosts and guests can connect directly and avoid paying steep fees that can range up to 20 percent or higher. So today Origin launches its decentralized marketplace protocol on the ethereum mainnet that replaces a central business that connects users and vendors with a smart contract. “Marketplaces don’t redistribute the profits they make to members. They accrue to founders and venture capitalists,” said Origin co-founder Matt Liu, who was the third product manager at YouTube. “Building these decentralized marketplaces, we want to make them peer-to-peer, not peer-to-corporate-monopoly-to-peer.” When people transact through Origin, it plans to issue them tokens that will let them participate in the governance of the protocol, and could incentivize...

Protection from Chinese sellers?

I had hell of a night mare from my first orders from China (won't bore you with details, but if you're interested.. let me know.. the story went kinda mini-viral with amazon FBA / ecommerce people. Have a link the blog in bottom if you'd like to read it). ​ I'm about to make a second purchase, and thinking about dealing with Chinese sellers (the crappy ones i met anyway), just gives me the chills. I think the new complexity has to do with the fact that I'm trying to ship to 2 separate locations (US and Thailand). ​ First of all.. im still hecka confused about shipping. I read everything about incoterms. But it's confusing. ​ 1) I've seen buyers recommending asking the seller to ship with their account b/c they get favorable rates since they ship so often. But how do you protect yourself against seller messing with...

Nonstop change is a certainty for ecommerce

The internet continues to disrupt the selling of products and services. The traditional ecommerce strategy of creating a single site and trying to market to the entire internet from that site is a shrinking option. Most small businesses do not have the budget to compete with ecommerce giants, and thus their market share is diminishing. Increasingly, ecommerce works better with a layered approach. At one end there is the consumer. At the other end is the business, and in the middle is a third-party platform. Amazon and eBay are classic platforms. They say to the consumers, more or less, “Whatever you want to buy you can find it here. It is good value and safe to purchase.” Retailers have to simply list their products and Amazon, and eBay will do the hard work of getting visitors. It means that retailers can do what they are good at — selling — and...

Everything You Should Know about WooCommerce Gift Guides

I love to give people gifts. There’s something so cool about finding the perfect item for someone based on an offhand comment, something you noticed, or something they didn’t realize they needed. But… finding a great gift is hard when you don’t have the perfect idea ready to go. I find giving gifts toughest to do around the holidays because I’m looking for gifts for a lot of people at once. At this time of year, I want help to generate ideas. I’ll often know of a store that my gift recipient likes, but I might not have a particular item in mind. I find gift guides extremely useful in this situation — I’ll visit a store, see that they have “Gifts for brothers”, “Gifts for moms”, or similar, and check out a few guides to find something my recipient will like. Gift guides are a really useful tool for...

Drowning in responsibilities as a solo business owner. How do I grow my business to the next level without experiencing sticker shock?

I’m in my 3rd year of running my business and getting pretty busy. I’ve hired my relative for 10 hours a week to help out but I’m getting nervous about the future (her skills are limited to production). My projected revenue this year is about $100,000 (65% is profit) and my projected revenue is expected to double next year. I’ve been stretched thin with all of the areas I am trying to cover with customer service, media/marketing, production, fulfillment, photography, adding new products and exhibiting at shows. I often feel like a one woman show with the exception of my relative working part time. I felt it was important to teach someone I know well to learn and run the back end of the business in case anything were to happen to me. How do you know when it’s time to move your business outside the home and hire regular...

Friendly Fraud and Ecommerce

What experience does everyone have with friendly fraud on a card not present transaction - large amount? Typically it's fairly hard to win chargebacks in general when fraud is the reason, but even on a loss I assume a civil lawsuit would do the trick. Original link
