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

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

How limited resources can motivate teams to accomplish goals and breed solutions.
India last month joined three other countries in the exclusive club that has put a craft on the moon. What’s unique about India’s accomplishment is that it did this at a fraction of what the U.S. spends on space exploration, shares Ben Cohen in The Wall St. Journal. While the U.S.’s NASA program has a $24b budget, India’s ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) budget is just $1.3b. India, which started its space program in 1963, is able to do ...Read more of post

Athletic Brewing gives 2% to trail projects.
While drinking Athletic, a non-alcoholic (fake!) beer, I noticed that its box proclaims that it gives back 2% to local trails. I love walking trails, and I thought: the next time I venture to have a sober night, I’ll pick up another box of Athletic. (Thanks, Athletic, for giving out $2.5m in trail grants.) Warby Parker gives a pair of eyeglasses for each pair bought (they've given 10m pairs!), while Bombas does this for socks. Bookshop.org gives...Read more of post

About two weeks ago in Charleston, SC, in spin class where I sounded like I was getting a hair transplant, I enjoyed being at once together with my friends in the class and yet competing with them.  When they peddled harder and stood up, I wanted to also.  Our competing didn't mean that there was one winner and everyone else lost. It wasn’t a zero-sum game.  In that spin class, we all won.  After that class, we all felt great. &...Read more of post

This WSJ Shopify review compares some of the fees charged by Amazon and Shopify. It takes the author half the article before he starts sharing fee structures. (I’d have liked to see more statistics about fees charged and even a chart.)

Excerpts:
  • Shopify, founded in 2007 and now publicly traded, has 1.7 million sellers (note: that’s a brick-and-mortar store or a person in their basement; Shopify doesn’t differentiate). 
  • A seller’s

FedEx bought a ShopRunner, and online shipping platform that had already received  $115 in venture-capital backing and an investment from UPS last year, shares RetailDive.

One doesn't shop on ShopRunner, rather one shops on other stores and looks for the ShopRunner logo when checking out. (Learn more about how it works here: https://www.shoprunner.com/how-it-works .)

A missing component for FedEx and UPS remains an e-commerce platform, such as Shopify, ...Read more of post

What is your abandoned cart rate? This and other factors arose in a shipping survey conducted by BigCommerce.

Some survey findings:


+ Fifty-eight percent stopped shopping certain retailers because of a negative shipping experience.

+ Amazon Prime has set a high bar with free two-day shipping. In the past 12 months, 84 percent of global survey respondents made an online purchase specifically because it offered free shipping, and half said they avoid shopping with retailers...Read more of post
