All e-commerce platforms have one thing in common. They let people come together online to buy and sell products. Most of these platforms support product discovery and come with a virtual shopping cart and check-out. Beyond that, there are plenty of differences between e-commerce solutions like Newegg, Amazon, Shopify, and BigCommerce – just to name a few.
So, how do you choose the best e-commerce platform for your merchandise? You want to go where there’s already an online audience for your type of product. You’ll also want an e-commerce platform that’s mobile-friendly and easy to use. There’s a lot more to think about, so ask yourself these six questions as you make the best choice.
Red Stag Fulfillment reports that the average e-commerce conversion rate is less than 5%. It’s easy to become an online seller, but not everyone is a conversion superstar. At Newegg, we want you to succeed and provide you with the tools and tips to convert more shoppers into customers.
Here are five best practices to follow to improve your conversion rates.
Newegg’s Sponsored Product Ads (SPA) provide sellers with vital tools to expand the reach of their products through targeted ad campaigns that appear across Newegg’s network of sites. But how do Marketplace sellers capture conversions outside of Newegg?
Converting impressions into purchases is the ultimate goal for e-commerce businesses, but achieving those conversions is often easier said than done. Marketing may lead customers to your products, but the world’s most fantastic marketing won’t help finalize that sale without crisp copy, the best branding, and immersive imagery. Do your listings check all those boxes?
Convince Customers that Your Products are Superior
Convincing customers to choose your products over the hundreds of other brands competing for their attention often comes down to a product listing’s content. Whoever has the highest-grade content wins the sale. However, sometimes more content is not always better.
Many e-commerce businesses focus on domestic orders while ignoring lucrative global revenue streams. This is because sellers incorrectly believe global sales are difficult to fulfill. However, as economic challenges constrict the domestic marketplace, businesses must expand their customer bases and seek new revenue channels wherever possible. Worldwide markets provide this potential growth, and our tools simplify international fulfillment.
Did you know that about 30% of all products ordered online are returned? According to the website Invesp, that’s about three times the rate of brick-and-mortar stores. For buyers, merchandise returns can mean disappointment and frustration. For sellers, there can be costs from shipping, handling, and restocking. Plus, you may not be able to sell the returned product at full price, if you can sell it all.
Sellers with a great return policy won’t get as many negative reviews, but the best policy for your business is to reduce merchandise returns in the first place. Newegg offers a 30-day hassle-free return on products sold and shipped by us, but your goal is for customers to keep (and rave about) what they buy from you. So, how do you reduce merchandise returns in the first place? Here are five ways.
Newegg puts products into categories and subcategories so that it’s easy for buyers to find what they’re looking for. In turn, each category and subcategory contains a catalog, or organized list, of individual products. As a Newegg seller, you want your product listings to shine. You also want to price your products fairly and avoid any violations that could result in a loss of marketplace privileges.
By following some best practices, you can optimize your catalog pages and avoid potential pitfalls.
- Work in batches for greater accuracy and efficiency.
- Group variants together so buyers can find and compare.
- Add quality images and videos for product listings that pop.
- Don’t add external hyperlinks or maintain multiple seller accounts.
- Implement safeguards to avoid listing the wrong price.
- Stick to fair pricing and avoid any excessive amounts.
