Our pricing page in 2016. Our offering (pricing strategy) was so new that we displayed pricing for retailers, brands, and sales reps on just one page. (Today, we have pages dedicated for each group.) The good news: in 2016 we were using bundled service pricing. The plans are listed vertically: Free plan, Starter plan, etc. The bad news: this vertical approach is not the best way to present plans. This approach prevented us from comparing and improving our bundles. A better method is presenting plans horizontally, from left to right, in vertical columns, such as how BigCommerce does it today. We learned this along the way and now present this information correctly.
We follow pricing for bundles and tiers of services. Over the last decade, we've tried various pricing approaches, as well as ways to visually convey these service offerings. In this post, I share the pricing for our services for retailers since 2017. In some case, we took a step forward and a step back--it wasn't linear progress.  We've drawn inspiration from many sources, including our competitors and Tinder. 

Presenting bundles is not limited to signing ...Read more of post

How social media influencers with the help of Amazon are bypassing brick-and-mortar retail shops
Kiara Springs, a 25-year old, is part of a new retail trend, shares The New York Times.  She sells about $10k/month online but doesn’t own a brick-and-mortar retail store, pay a landlord rent, go to the wholesale markets, or have a POS system. Her “sidewalk” to get traffic is TikTok, and her “POS” is Amazon.  Her “stockroom” is the brand’s warehouse. She has an Amazon affiliate account and goods are drop ...Read more of post

Do website service providers need a digital health label?
In this example, we see a merchant that uses Shop Local for their registry service. The service historically helps a store rank well in Google and is well received by shoppers, registrants, or store owners.

Do website service providers need a digital health label?
When you pick up a package of Oreos or yogurt at the grocery store, you can see the nutrition (or lack of it!) on the nutrition label on the back. Health advocates are encouraging the FDA to make warnings more obvious on packages—such as by placing information on the front of the package, shares The Wall St. Journal. Advocates have looked abroad for inspiration. In Mexico, you’ll find labels with a black octagon, resembling a stop sign, on the front of ...Read more of post

If your Shopify website does not have a link leading to your Shop Local account, your business is losing online sales.

Without a link, your business is losing out on:
1. More sales.
2. More registrants.
3. Higher Google rankings.

There is a free, easy solution: Add a link from your Shopify site to your Shop Local site.

21 ways Gift Reggie is making it difficult for gift givers, registrants, and merchants
Our registry service handles 80,000 gift and wedding registries. We often come across other registry software and can see how it's affecting  the merchant that is using it. 

While eating breakfast and browsing the web via my phone, I recently came across RFD, a merchant in Albany, NY, that uses Gift Reggie (an app that is added to a Shopify Store).

I observed 21 problems while reviewing the merchant's registry service.  I initially wrote the issues ...Read more of post

As a store owner, you know how important it is to choose a registry service that works well for you, your employees, your registrants, and gift-givers (family and friends). In addition to working well, the registry service should offer your store good value (price vs. results).

When looking for registry software, some retailers consider MyRegistry.com for their registry service. MyRegistry.com offers gift registry creation and management features that integrate ...Read more of post
