By Barbara Wiesner


Read the latest updates from all the teams and departments at SmartEtailing. Each month our team is working tirelessly to get your website and tools working as efficiently for you as possible.

Client Success Updates 

Better Payment Processing with WePay

WePay, a Chase Bank company, delivers the latest payments technology with the reliability of an established banking partner. You can learn more about WePay/Chase by visiting this link.

We will be sunsetting payment processing with our previous partner, Stripe, by January 21st, 2022. While Stripe is no longer supported by SmartEtailing, utilizing WePay/Chase and PayPal to accept payments gives your customers the best options to complete their online purchases. Please use this guide and configure your SmartEtailing settings to accept payments through WePay/Chase.

Last minute shopping

Gift cards are the easy gift choice for your customers. Import our Gift Card library catalog item and you'll be able to easily drop a gift card order in the mail for them. And assure yourself a bit more business in January. Studies show that the typical gift card holder spends more than the amount of the gift card.

Do you have special holiday hours?

Closing early on Christmas Eve? Open or Closed on New Year's Day? Let your customers know when they can shop in store with you by making sure your store hours are reflected on your website and on Google. Click here to learn how to set your holiday hours.

Holiday hours for the client success team

Speaking of holiday hours, our team will have reduced hours on a few days this holiday season. The SmartEtailing offices are closed on December 24, 27, 31, and January 3 and we will have limited staff available before 2 pm each of those days.
