3 Spooky eCommerce Practices & How to Keep Your OpenCart Store Away From Them

Halloween with fear and thrill is coming near, marking the beginning of sales season. OpenCart retailers are starting to have scary nightmares each night (or even day) related to the fate of their web shop during this holiday period. Will the store be haunted by zombie products, abandoned carts, budget vampires and other skeletons in the closet? These questions make the blood of web-shop entrepreneurs run cold. Yeah, running online store can be tricky and even sometimes scary. For that reason and in the spirit of upcoming Halloween, we have prepared the spookiest eCommerce practices with solutions that will keep these problems away better than garlic repels vampires. The Terrifying Story of Horrible InventoryWrong or outdated inventory is one of the most scary and significant problems of any online business. When inventory levels are too high, cash is spent and space is inefficiently used. When inventory levels are too low, stock-outs and late deliveries harm the reputation of your brand. 21% to 43% of consumers who faced a stock-out will actually go to another store to buy the item. Conclusion&Solution:Always stay up-to-date and take care about your inventory. It is a good idea to set up automated updates, importing data on inventory levels directly from your supplier on certain schedule, once a week / once a day / every few hours. The Scary Tale of Monstrous PricesIt’s not a secret that consumers love sales, coupons, seasonal pricing and other promotion related markdowns. If you have ignored this trend and your prices are higher than your competitors offer, this is a sure-fire way to make your goods freakish and scare shoppers away in seconds. Walmart and Best Buy changed their prices roughly 50,000 times a month. Amazon changes its prices more than 2.5 million times a day. Conclusion&Solution: The most common scenario is to keep up with the competition and offer time-limited price mark-downs and run promotions to capture attention of your potential shoppers and clear out unsold inventory.The Bone-Chilling Saga of Faceless ProductsProduct images allow customers to get a visual sense of the product, since shopping online there is no other was to get the idea of how the item looks like or how it will fit. If your products do not have images they are like faceless ghosts. With them you’ve got all chances not to make the sale, but break it and scare potential customers away. 90% of information that comes to the brain is visual, and images are processed 60,000 times faster than text. Conclusion&Solution: Diagnose your store and detect goods without any image. After that you will be able to export the list and at least add ‘Image coming soon’ massively to them or in best-case scenario upload multiple missing images at once. While these stories may seem terrifying, don’t let these problems haunt your online store. Store Manager for OpenCart and its addons will come to your rescue. The apps are empowered with helpful Import/Export Wizards and other tools that will be wonderful assistants, especially for preparation to the upcoming occasions like Christmas and New Year. You will be able to: Adjust data using Bulk Changers in 2 clicks - for seasonal sales, offers, etcImport any Excel, xml, csv, txt file you have (no limitations)Synchronise with eBay, QuickBooks, PeachTree by Sage and moreAdd orders via POS with barcode scanner and cash drawer support (for offline stores)Automate recurring tasks with schedulers to get up to date Experienced your own horror story while managing your online store? Use comments section to tell us and we will try to offer you solution if it still bothers you.

Garage Sale Tips to Score Great Deals

Shorts, sun, sea... what else? Garage sales! Gone are the days when people were visiting dusty warehouses or driving around the neighborhood to get good bargains. Now store owners are making virtual garage sales and have the chance to clear our inventory levels and earn extra revenue before back-to-school season. Here are a few things to consider organizing virtual garage sale at your OpenCart store: Product Prominence Most of us will agree that prominence is crucial to the discovery of any product. The items need to be prominently displayed and easily found at your website. This is especially true when it comes to offers sold at the garage sale. So you have to prepare proper place for clients to see it right they enter the site. The good idea will be to put products you would like to be sold out in a separate category indicating that inside of it the items are on sale. To this category you can mass assign goods that are slow-moving and simply “sit on your shelf” or seasonal entities that are unlikely to be bought till the next year. Moreover, this category should take one of the first places in your catalog, so make sure that you change the order of your categories and sort items within it. Match-Making

Summer is Here: Do Not Let Your Sales Go on Vacation!

Summertime! People plan their vacations, look for some fun new places to travel and generally relax and take things easy. Maybe this is true for lots, but not ecommerce business owners, who are stressed because of possible summer sales slowdown. It is true that this time of the year people get less focused on buying things, but that doesn’t have to be your case! When others are sleepy, you need to wake up. It can be an opportunity to try the things you haven’t done yet. So here are some tips and tricks to keep your buyers traffic high and make sales go away from summer decline. Update Your Store CatalogA list of store owners’ to-do tasks seems to never end. One of the main points of this checklist is refreshing your content and this is the first thing you should take care of this summer. The great idea is to include seasonal items that are in demand. If you sell not season-targeted products, think about your existing inventory. Define best-selling items and check the quantity you have got in stock. The good idea is to make connection with supplier and make scheduled updates to avoid manual inventory updates and overstocking. Give Customers Hot-Hot PricingIt’s hot outside so make your pricing just as hot inside your store. To help entice people to get in your store during those off-peak times you can offer your items for special discounted prices. Probably not for the whole store, just certain items that you would like to be bought in the first place. Reconsider your store pricing scheme and make price reductions for limited period of time to bring traffic to your shop during this relatively slow period. Refine the Look of Your StoreSummer is on, so you might think about the idea of making your store more seasonal. Even if you don’t sell swimming suits or other products for going to the beach, it doesn’t mean you can’t be the part of it. Summer is associated with sun, cheerfulness and fun. Let your customers get into summer spirit! Make your site and products look appeal to the audience. Add summer-themed banner, change template on more bright and even make the summer shoot of your merchandise. Improve visual look to your products and draw clients’ attention. Explore Options of Sales Channel The more places your items are listed to, the higher are the chances that clients will come across them and place the order. So try to get where your customers usually go for shopping and expand your reach! Explore other sales channels – like eBay or Amazon – to increase the chance that a customer finds you quicker. This can boost your traffic and make your sales skyrocket through the summer. Receive Sales Everywhere You AreJust because people spend less time at this computers, it does not mean that they are out of reach at all. They may take smartphones and tablets when they are travelling or simply chilling out. The same concerns you as store owner. You can go on vacation, but this does not mean that your store has to take days-off too. You can continue monitoring sales, clients and other statistics on your shop directly from your mobile device. Summer slowdown is either a chance to ‘go home early’, or an opportunity to explore new possibilities for your business that you usually don’t have time to do. If you choose the second variant, we want to help you jump into it and be ready to get the most out of this season. Choose eMagicOne’s software to beat summer sales slump! www.opencartmanager.com/buy-now-store-manager/order/ Or download FREE trial right now and check how easier things are made.

Spring is Here: March Madness is in the Air

March is a great month that marks the beginning of spring and gives internet retailers a plenty of seasonal opportunities to score sales and reputation for their businesses. With several holidays nearby consumers are also inclined to shop more during this time of year - this is when March Madness begins. Since ecommerce has pretty much the same compatible nature as sport, it is possible to predict that demand and traffic should be high these days. Thus, it is the perfect time to kick it up a notch on activities aimed at improvement of online stores and making connections with customers. So here are a few tips that will help you jump into March Madness and use it to your advantage: 1) Make Spring Clearance Cast a critical eye over your catalog. See if you have items that are not selling as well as you would like to and see if you have any overstock goods taking too much storage space. It is high time to get rid of those products, selling them for lower price, thus refreshing your stock. The same concerns seasonal items (if you sell any), unless you expect that some queers will buy fur coats in the middle of the spring. Detect best and low-selling products in seconds - http://www.opencartmanager.com/useful-articles/opencart-reports/ 2) Stock Up with New Arrivals When you have removed old, stacked inventory, you have made space for the new arrivals. Make sure that you have what customers are looking for, including into your catalog the popular goods and the novelties appearing at the market. Organize your inventory and ensure that you have enough for each interested buyer. Automate your inventory updates, freshen up your content, synchronizing directly from supplier - http://www.opencartmanager.com/useful-articles/addons/make-your-opencart-product-import-running-automatically-on-schedule/ 3) Pull People in with Promotions Discounts and offers are great for effective engaging of customers, as encourage them to buy. Proving time-limited promotions and offering your goods for some percentage-off the regular price will bring more interested shoppers. Check how to make holiday price mark-downs for all products in seconds - http://www.opencartmanager.com/useful-articles/tipstricks/modify-prices-by-percentage-amount-in-opencart/ 4) Polish Up The Look of Products Online stores actually sell ideas of products without any actual access to tangible items, since customers do not have ability touch, feel or in other way to evaluate the product. What narrows this gap? Multiple products images. If your some of your products are deprived of them, the items will hardly capture the attention of shoppers. Pictures carry important visual information that helps the person decide to buy or not. Thus, you need to check if all the products have images and add them if any are missing. 5) Go Mobile One of key features for a good ecommerce site is real-time information on your store information: pricing and inventory, new customers, and quick access to sales. Thus, it is important to have it everything at hand, especially when you are not in the office, for example, view store statistics from your mobile phone or tablet. This way you will make sure that you have everything under control. Get free instant access to your store statistics from your Android mobile device - http://www.opencart.com/index.php?route=extension/extension/info&extension_id=19950 Get winning sales during March Madness!

How to Overcome Post-Holiday Sales Slump

January is typically considered to be a slow month for online stores. People tend to spend a fortune on holiday shopping and stop right after the season is over. Post-holiday sales are expected to get low. This happens because people have reached or surpassed their Christmas holiday spending budgets and how they are forced to tighten their belts. Now they remain cautious about opening their wallets again. So how do online businesses get through this slow month? Engaging consumers into purchases after the holidays is not an easy thing. But it’s critical for online merchants not to let the sales momentum slip in January. Here’s a list of tips to help your online store drive revenue during the typical downturn period after the holiday shopping season. 1. Launch New ProductsKeeping content fresh and relevant is always a key to boosting customer engagement, but this is particularly important after the traditional holiday shopping craze. January is typically a good month to introduce new products and product lines. Your products will not be overshadowed by discounts or the glut of goods presented during shopping season. Thus, you can get more new interested clients who might want to check new arrivals at your store. It is smart to create the category “What’s new” and import your recent acquisitions there. This way these items will grab more attention of interested clients. 2. Update Inventory After the rush of Christmas the inventory of most online shops is usually pretty much wiped out. So you can use this January downtime to organize leftovers and stock up ordering fresh inventory from your supplier. To avoid constant worries you can set up automated updates of your stock and insure that you always have enough quantity for all the interested buyers. 3. Offer Promotions and Sales Even after Christmas, there are still plenty of bargain-hunters looking for great deals. Customers really love sales and promotions, so make sure you have the deals they want. You can draw new customers to your website with special post-holiday discounts. Many consumers will find it hard to resist rock bottom prices even when finances are tight.Make suggestions based on past purchases, analyzing purchasing history and preferred products to determine what items are most popular and then offer them for reduced price for limited period of time. Finally, to bring the above mentioned techniques into life, online retailers need some helpful tools to make tasks easier and processes faster. Store Manager for OpenCart and its addons will help you beat post-holiday sales slump - http://www.opencartmanager.com/buy-now-store-manager/order/ Start the new year with awesome sales and rest of the year will be awesome too!

What Your OpenCart Wishes for Christmas?

Christmas is almost upon us! Children write lengthy letters to Santa and adults make Christmas wishes and New Year’s resolutions. Have you ever thought what would be the wishes of your online store if it could make any? Let’s imagine, what your OpenCart might wish for? Here is the letter that we think your shop could have composed:Santa ClausSanta’s WorkshopNorth Pole 0001Dear Santa, It is that time of the year again. I suppose that you are putting together the presents along with your elves and preparing your slade&deers for a long trip on Christmas night. You must be very busy these days, as well as I and my website owner. Since people all over the world are writing letters to you, I have decided to do the same. Well, my wishes are not exactly similar to ordinary man’s list. Do not get me wrong - a Porsche under the New Year tree will be much appreciated. However, I have specific needs and desires. I love my job. Each day I have lots of guests all over the world and I know them very well (can show you report). I have a cute design and my owner is really kind to me. I have been very good this year, so I hope that you can grant a few wishes that would help me to be even better. Here are just a few things that I would absolutely love this year:Be Always Up-to-DateMy owner is so busy building the business, managing accounting and getting orders out-the-door. I understand that he doesn’t have time to watch for me every second of the day. Humans need sleep, but I never do. All the time there is something new going on here and I’m always afraid that I’m not up-to-date. Thus, I would like to have scheduled updates performed each regular period of time. This way my inventory will be always on the appropriate level, I will be confident that I have something to offer each interested client and my owner can have good night sleep :)Change FasterAs I have already mentioned, my owner is very busy, especially when sales season begins and we need to make some bulk price changes. I would like to have the possibility to do promotions and increase or lower price much faster. This way my owner will have more time on other things. Look More Attractive I would like to ask for something else for myself. Nothing fancy, but I’ve worked so hard all year, I think it would help my spirits and confidence as well as get me ready for another year. I want to add images to all the products at my catalog. I have heard this makes website much more attractive for buyers. Feel HealthierAlso, I might be asking too much, but hope that there is a chance that you could help me get rid of old stuff I’m not using anymore. I feel so up to the neck in data, with all those products and images that I even do not use. All these useless things make it difficult for me to operate properly. I would like to be faster and lighter, so hope that there is a possibility for small clean-up!Stay ProtectedI worry so much about my security. There are lots of strangers in the Internet with bad intentions. That is why I feel very vulnerable. I really hope that my owner puts everything else aside and will think about security, at least for a moment or two every week in order to make backup of my data. This way I would feel much more confident. I’m also willing to find new friends. I have already heard about Store Manager for OpenCart and addons to it. Together we will be great team, as they are very helpful and can take care about me. Hope to see them next to me very soon.Sincerely, OpenCart Store If your store wishes the same, prepare the gift for it and for yourself: http://www.opencartmanager.com/buy-now-store-manager/order/ We wish you and your store a very happy holiday season and fulfillment of all your dreams and wishes!Merry X-Mas and Happy New Year!

Is Your OpenCart Store 'Boo Hoo' or 'Woo Hoo'?

Halloween is considered as the official kick-off to the holiday season by many retailers. As the first real fall holiday event, it gets consumers excited and puts them in the mood for coming months.Before Halloween lots of online stores selling goods may look a little scary. On occasion of holiday, ecommerce store owners may use different techniques to attract clients’ attention to boost holiday sales. However, sometimes these might be not holiday pranks. Are you sure that your store does not look “Boo Hoo” for your clients? Maybe your OpenCart site is a nightmare on Elm Street?Your ecommerce store should be thrilling, but not in a scary-movie sort of way. How to make sure that you have done everything to make your clients say “Woo Hoo” when they enter your OpenCart-based e-shop?So in the spirit of Halloween, we are introducing terrifying e-commerce practices and, more important, what you can do if you experience any of them. “Dead Corpses” - Outdated CatalogWhy it’s scary:Сontent is very important for providing valuable information to users. It is a major component of building site’s relevance. If your store doesn’t show any signs of life for a long time already, then you have got all the chances to lose clients’ interest. Without no doubt, it is a real horror story for any store owner. How to avoid it:As was already mentioned, killer content is very important, so make sure you constantly warm up interest of thirsty for “fresh blood” shoppers by adding popular novelties to your shop.“Zombies” - Out Of Stock ItemsWhy it’s scary:When your goods are out of stock they are neither dead, nor alive, they simply occupy space at your database. Does this chill your bones? How to avoid it:If you’ve ever watched a zombie movie, you’d know that the sort of thing frequently ends up when someone offers anti-zombie weapon. We suggest you to neutralize zombie-products setting up scheduled inventory updates directly from your supplier. Budget Vampires - Products with Unreasonably Driven Up PriceWhy it’s scary:Your clients are looking for monstrous discounts on occasion of holiday, but what they see? The prices much higher than your competitors offer - this sure-fire way to make your goods freakish and scare shoppers away in seconds. How to avoid it: Make sure you have put proper mark-ups for more expensive products you can afford yourself to raise cost on some bigger percent than for low-priced goods. Moreover, make some screaming seasonal promos and discounts, offering your client savings to get them in holiday spirit. If none of these works, call Buffy to help you place a stake through the heart of worthless moneysucker that made put incorrect mark-ups... Just kidding, obviously. She is too busy this time of the year :)Skeletons in the Closet - Goods Without ImagesWhy it’s scary: Your page has another task besides navigation and that is to establish trust and credibility. Remember that just as every image on your site has to support your desired action. So having “No image” or “Image is not available” messages showing, like a shadowy black cat - one of the most horrifying things when selling goods online. How to avoid it: Diagnose your store for missing images and also pictures at your server that you do not use any more. Ghost Products - Items Not Visible at Front-EndWhy it’s scary: So before you get excited about the fact that you have added the products and they soon will be purchased, check if they are visible at front-end to your clients. This is not paranormal activity, but pretty usual thing when missing some of important details while adding the product. How to avoid it: Make sure that goods you sale are activated at the front-end and have all the details filled in. Moreover, check if they are linked to any category for your clients to be able to find them. While these stories may seem terrifying, don’t worry. We have prepared for you the ammunition in your battle against the terrors of online store handling! The software for easier tasks accomplishment is available for reduced price - Store Manager for OpenCart and its addons!

Coupons VS Discounts VS Specials in OpenCart: What is the Difference?

There are many different promotional methods for an online store. The most effective ones are those that offer some possibilities for clients to save some money. Retailers often lower their prices to keep up with competitors or with the aim to raise the interest to particular products to get more orders. In OpenCart there are included the possibilities to temporarily reduce the price with the help of discounts, specials and coupons. However, there exists a common misconception is that these notions are interchangeable. On one hand, they all are effective pricing methods, but on the other hand, there are a few major differences between them.Have a look at explanation of these promotion methods usages and their main difference outlined below. Discounts Generally, discount is used to decrease the price of a current product, but only on condition that a customer buys more than indicated number of one and the same item. In other words, if you buy one piece, it’s cost is $100, but if you buy, let’s say, three and more pieces, then each would cost $89. This is great way for client to save in case he/she needs a few copies of one and the same entity. The more customers buy, the more they save. The discount option can also be targeted on a designated customer group. This can be a long-term pricing strategy as well as time-limited.SpecialsA special is a price of the product you put on sale. It is lower price comparing to ordinary cost of the item and is usually available for limited period of time. For example, a product may have cost $100, but let’s say during holiday weekends with the help of specials option in OpenCart you can set the price to $95. That way customers see the “old price – new price”. Usually this difference provokes them to buy a product, as there is the chance to save. This type of pricing is better used as a short-term tactic during the holiday period, sales week or to keep up with competitor’s price cut. CouponsCoupons provide you the possibility to further lower the price of products by using unique codes. Basically, these are special short texts which customers enter on the checkout page to get the total order price reduced. You can also set a start and end date plus limit the number of times the coupon code is used.Is It Possible to Use Special, Discount and Coupon Together? Yes, however if promotional rules overlap, then special price has got higher priority than discount and it’a value is taken into account and discount is ignored. The reason is because discounts are considered to be set for longer periods of time while specials for shorter ones (special events, discount week, black friday, etc.). In this case when a product has both discount and special set, the special is used.Coupon in its turn can be applied along with special as well as discount.
