10 BEST E-COMMERCE TRENDS THAT REALLY SELL

Every day we provide our clients with best practice tips. And we know what their customers like. We have identified 10 tips & tricks that definitely should be used in your online store.

All of the examples are from actual projects we have worked on.

Trend #1: Customers want to know your success story

Add an “About us” page to your e-commerce website. Tell your story and mention what makes you unique.
Add pictures to make it more impressive.
 
Trend #2: Social proof should be clear

Don’t hide testimonials, reviews, or certificates or don’t just add social buttons on the bottom of the front page or on the internal pages of your website.
Proudly place these in the header of your home page.
 
Trend #3: Link lookbooks with relevant items

If you use lookbooks to promote your goods, please give your customers an opportunity to purchase the same items in your store.
 
Trend #4: Content helps sell

Integrate a blog into your online store or the store into your blog. Write about your goods and all the things that your customers are interested in.
 
Trend #5: Make attractive shipping options clear

If your shipping rates give you a competitive advantage, make sure that your customers know about that on your website’s landing page.
Adding a shipping fee at the cart stage is one of the easiest ways to lose sales.
 
Trend #6: Draw attention to sales and most popular products

Showcase your best suggestions on your website’s landing page. This is a key starting point to get customers into your store.
 
Trend #7: Use only high quality photography

In the era of large retina screens, it’s more important than ever to use high quality pictures that clearly show your products in use. Note, in e-commerce a photograph is the focus of the sale.
 
Trend #8: Be faster; use quick shop pop-ups and one-step checkout

Customers have less time than ever before. Make their shopping experience convenient and enjoyable.
 
Trend #9: Let customers filter

If you have more than 10 products in your catalog, it is useful to add filters. You can personalize filters using Facebook likes, a customer’s recent shopping experience, or demo graphics.
 
Trend #10: Collect leads

Perhaps you don’t like email pop-ups, but they work and help you generate leads and an email following. Make maximum use of them in your store.

Adaptive Payments by PayPal

The PayPal Adaptive Payments add-on is now available for Multi-Vendor store owners. This add-on will help root store administrators to distribute funds automatically among multiple vendors through PayPal.

The add-on is available to purchase and download in just two clicks http://www.simtechdev.com/adaptive-payments-by-paypal.html

Overview

PayPal Adaptive Payments enables a customer to send a single payment directly to multiple vendors in one order.

The customer pays the storeowner (root administrator) an amount. The storeowner keeps part of the payment and pays vendors the remainder. The customer only sees you as the storeowner. You allocate the payment for your commission and the actual cost of services provided by vendors. PayPal then deducts money from the customer’s account and deposits it in both your account and the vendors’ accounts.

The customer only knows about the storeowner as a primary recipient, not the vendors. The vendors only know about the primary recipient, not the customer.

The storeowner must have a PayPal Business account.

By default, payments to all recipients are immediate. However, you can choose to delay payments to vendors for up to 90 days. This may come in handy if you require vendors to perform some action, such as shipping goods or waiting for the expiration of a return period, before making payment.

The payments made via PayPal Adaptive Payments must be authorized and approved by the customer. Adaptive Payments uses the web redirect approval method, in which web stores redirect the customer to PayPal.com to log in for approval.

Compatibility

The add-on is compatible with Multi-Vendor 4.1.2 and above.
