e-ProductPlug.com integrates with Walmart.com's marketplace

Announcing e-ProductPlug’s latest integration with Walmart.com’s marketplace, the Number 4 e-commerce site in the United States!

Just a few years ago Walmart.com marketplace was open to less than a dozen authorized third-party online retailers like Wayfair and Tool King. Today Walmart’s initiative is to aggressively expand and grow their marketplace by over 1 million new items per month. And, in mid-2016, Walmart overhauled their back-end system and launched a new and more user-friendly access portal for retailers, Walmart Seller Center.

If you are an approved seller on Walmart’s marketplace, you can have your products listed side-by-side with Walmart products, presenting a massive opportunity for our sellers especially in time for the holiday season! Contact e-ProductPlug right away for more details if you are already approved at Sales@e-ProductPlug.com or 954-800-5282.

Keep in mind that Walmart maintains strict requirements to be a seller on their platform. In addition, Walmart e-commerce retailers are in charge of their own order fulfillment, allowing the partner to indicate fulfillment times and cut-off times for processing during the day in the Seller Center portal. The Walmart Marketplace is a similar business model of Amazon.com, eBay, and Jet.com and will collect the money directly, deduct your commission and pay the retailer bi-weekly.

What about the new Jet.com acquisition?

Walmart has recently acquired the one-year old Jet.com marketplace in a cash and stock deal valued at $3.3 billion. Walmart is the world’s largest retailer by revenue reports online sales that brought in $13.7 billion in sales last year, including sales from approximately 600 third-party approved online retailers. Internet Retailer estimates that Jet has more than 2,400 merchants selling on its site currently. Walmart says Jet will continue to operate as its own distinct brand…at least for now.

e-ProductPlug Now Supporting Shopify Merchants

e-ProductPlug Announces Integration with Shopify

Are you one of Shopify’s merchants? If so we have great news for you!
e-ProductPlug is ready and available to you in the Shopify app store…and you’ll love it!

For years, e-Commerce Merchants have had to struggle by manually inputting and updating their supplier’s product data onto their websites, picking through spreadsheets to find discontinued items and manually add in new products…until now.

Designed as a web-based plug-in for your e-Commerce store, e-ProductPlug is a simple yet powerful product data and inventory management tool that can be found in Shopify’s app store. E-ProductPlug automates and updates your dropship and/or virtual inventory product data in your online store by “plugging-in” directly to your vendor’s product data feeds and pushes the data directly into your site automatically- up to three times a day. So say Goodbye to the tedious task of dealing with spreadsheets, overselling and tracking down inventory, and canceling orders…and say Hello to an average of 10 extra hours a week!

“Shopify is one of the leading shopping cart platforms for online retailers and we are excited to be integrated with them and are ready to help their Merchants gear up for the holiday season,” shares Michelle Beaudet-Smith, CEO and Founder of e-ProductPlug. “We are thrilled to announce a special ‘Variant’ plug that we created just for Shopify merchants with variant product options – perfect for stores selling apparel, jewelry, shoes, handbags and more. This new Variant plug will automate adding the product variants from their product data feed such as size and color. Imagine the time and manual input errors that will be saved! This new plug feature aligns directly with our mission of delivering innovative solutions for our Shopify clients from ‘Newbies’ looking to get off the ground and add new products quickly, to ‘Experienced Merchants’ who want to scale and add more products.”

E-ProductPlug is a product content and inventory management tool for online retail website owners that can sync their supplier’s inventory and product data and automatically to add in new products, update existing product content, and pinpoint discontinued items. No more working with spreadsheets, hiring expensive developers, or spending hours manually inputting data. All of that can be resolved with our app- for less than $2 a day! The advanced features in e-ProductPlug make it much more valuable to e-commerce merchants than just simply transferring data such as a powerful mapping engine, filtering tool, and field optimization rules to tweak the data and make the products ready to sell. Check us out in Shopify’s app store and begin a 10-day (credit-card free) trial today!

Best Practice Data Fields for eCommerce Files

An important goal for your e-Commerce website should be to AUTOMATE as much as possible…DON’T GET CAUGHT IN SPREADSHEET HELL! When sourcing out Suppliers to work with, it’s important to vet them out to ensure a smooth  partnership. Take the time to ask them these questions regarding their product catalog:

  • Do you provide a data feed with your latest products to include at least the required and Spreadsheet-Hell1(hopefully) recommended data fields?  Download our Best Practice Data Fields to learn more.
  • Is the file in a flat file format like .csv, .txt, or even in Excel? If not, what format is it provided in and how it is retrieved (i.e. login and download from a website or placed on an FTP)?
  • How often is the file updated…especially the inventory?

In addition, you’ll need to find out their process for accepting and confirming orders, shipping, and returns. Reduce the manual labor from your daily workload so you can focus on growing your business and you’ll have less chance for errors as a side effect. Focus on finding Dropship Suppliers that can provide their product data and inventory in a well-formed data feed so that managing your store and integrating with other eCommerce technology, like e-ProductPlug, can be seamless and easy.

If you want the experts at e-ProductPlug to review your Supplier’s datafeed first to ensure that it is compatible…contact us anytime at Sales@e-ProductPlug.com or 954-800-5282.

Top 3 Tips to Improve Webstore Conversions

e-ProductPlug's Top 3 Conversion TipsIt doesn’t matter how beautiful or fantastic you think your website is, if you are like most online retailers, only about 2 to 3% of your visitors will make a purchase. That’s roughly 97 out of every 100 visitors leave your site without buying anything. Throwing more money at marketing to bring in more shoppers may sound like a good idea but it is not necessarily the answer to convert visitors to buyers and increase ROI.

There can be numerous reasons why your site is not converting at or above the 3% average…most often these are because the site falls short of three important reasons:  PersuadabilityUseability, and/or Trustability. Though it’s impossible to pinpoint every single area of improvement, we have put together some top high-level points for each in our free whitepaper…look for the download link on our home page mid-way down in the purple section.

Never miss a conversion opportunity again…

If you can communicate the value of your store and your products immediately to your shoppers, you will be more likely to increase conversion than competitors who tend to complicate the shopping process.

After you read the whitepaper and implement some of these suggestions, let us know what conversion improvements you make – we’d love to hear about your results!
