Ecommerce fulfillment 101

Running an eCommerce business seems easy until you have to think about all aspects of fulfillment – receiving, warehousing, packing, and shipping products to customers.

Customers are harder and harder to please. They may not be willing to pay extra but want fast delivery. It can be stressful for many companies to manage order fulfillment in an optimal way that satisfies their needs, meets customers’ demands and stimulates business growth.

In this article, we’ll cover the fundamentals of ecommerce fulfillment and how to choose a proper order fulfillment for your business.

Mobile performance optimization for your Magento store

With more than 50% of all users browsing online using mobile devices, Google started prioritizing site set up for mobile experiences some time ago. However, it wasn’t until July 1st, 2019, that the search giant officially announced that it would be prioritizing mobile-first indexing for all new websites.

At first glance, it looks like a controversial move. After all, mobile devices have a number of key restrictions:

  1. less CPU power (roughly 75% less processing resources),
  2. bandwidth challenges (rural network capabilities, browsing on EDGE and H+ networks),
  3. memory restrictions (slower to work on resource-heavy stores, hard to keep multiple pages live),
  4. physical screen size and tap-based UI (harder to type and navigate),
  5. older smartphones (not everyone owns the latest iPhone, you know).

However, mobile device proliferation is how the industry is moving, with more ecommerce shoppers preferring to use their mobile devices when browsing online stores.

How to sell underperforming products

Why some products sell very well and others don’t? What’s the dynamic between your products and your customers? How to push underperforming products to success?

Every ecommerce brand experiences issues with the different products in its range. And while it’s absolutely normal to discontinue some products, it doesn’t have to be the only way.

If a product sells very badly compared to your other items, it doesn’t necessarily mean people don’t want it. Probably they just overlook it and choose something else. A little product analysis can help you solve this problem and up your sales without changing your range.

Generally, underperforming products are:

  • invisible
  • unappealing

The problem is in presentation – how you promote them. Here are a few ideas how to sell more of the items that don’t sell well. And none of them includes discounting, devaluing your brand or faking urgency!
