In an attempt to compete with the e-commerce giants, Google will be releasing a ‘Buy’ button into its search results in the near future.
A report by The Wall Street Journal said that Google was planning to rival the likes of Amazon and eBay by introducing the buttons in its “shop on Google” section. The buttons will also appear in Google’s sponsored adverts.
For online services and businesses, email receipts are now a necessity. Email receipts are more cost effective and environmentally friendly than paper versions, and for e-commerce stores, they are a lot more practical.
When a customer makes a purchase from your e-commerce store, an email receipt should be automatically generated. This digital copy is sent directly to the customer’s inbox allowing your marketing team some valuable opportunities.
A recent Experian survey found that email receipts have a 33.7 percent higher open rate than regular bulk emails. This makes email receipts the easiest way into an inbox, making them a perfect way to generate more revenue.
Google began promoting mobile friendly websites on 21st April 2015. Websites that are less welcoming/responsive to mobile devices will soon slide down the search rankings. This is now being dubbed Mobilegeddon or Mobilepocalypse.
There will be many who welcome this news with open arms and ridicule those who haven’t made the mobile-friendly investment in their websites. The harsh reality is that there are still many small businesses and online retailers who have failed to see the writing on the wall and will soon be witnessing a dramatic decrease in their traffic.
The Internet Retail Expo is a great place to gain a better understanding of the retail and e-commerce world. The event mainly consists of retailers, who offer visitors discussions and learning to help you get the most out of your online store.
As we are an agency that specialises in e-commerce, we like to attend the event every year to keep ourselves updated with the industry trends, as well as some understanding into what the future might hold.
