Client Success Updates 

Shopping without a cart is difficult 

Ecommerce isn't going away and sales on the SmartEtailing platform is through the roof for each bike shop that has their shopping cart turned on. Participate in this growth by turning on your shopping cartLet customers shop the way that they want and complete transactions on your website.

Financing through PayPal

Make it easy on your customer who wants to go big this season and set up PayPal as a payment option so you can activate the "Financing" option. There is no change to your fees or when your payout occurs, and gives the customer flexibility in payback. Activate it in Site Manager under Commerce > Payment Methods.

Development Updates 

NEW Service Appointment Tool

With a limited staff and a high volume of phone calls, bike shops want to use technology to improve customer service and payroll efficiency. That's why we now include an online Service Appointment Tool free with every SmartEtailing website package. We have created a comprehensive help center article to walk you through the complete setup process.

As with all new features, if you have any questions please feel free to reach out to our Client Success team for personalized assistance. We’ve deployed this new feature under beta status in order to collect hands-on feedback from retailers like you.

Marketing Updates

Continue to help shoppers find the cycling equipment and services they need to make the most of every ride. As bike inventory becomes more plentiful, make sure that you have content to attract, inform, and convert customers on your website.
