Is your website ready for summer?

Take a few minutes to review your Supplier Settings. Check to make sure you are displaying all that you can over the summer, when your site has the potential for the most site traffic. Also review your supplier ship time settings which helps your customers know when they could expect an item to arrive, one of the best ways to close the sale online.

Don't be afraid of selling online

Does it sound like too much hassle, or are you worried about fraud? Whatever your reason, there are more reasons than not to start selling online. You can start with pickup in-store only. Click + collect, also called buy online, pickup in-store, is rapidly becoming the preferred shopping method for many consumers. Using a payment gateway and your best judgement will keep fraud to a minimum. We have new offerings to help protect you!

Removing model year from catalog items

On April 24th, SmartEtailing removed model year from the display of all catalog items on your website. Removing model years allows brands and retailers to better plan availability and control inventory. It helps retailers maximize margins because there is less pressure to discount aging product. Traditionally in the bike industry, when model years changed, retailers experience a reduction in inventory value and incur significant margin risk. Read the full update here.
