    Most flash sales models send a daily email to members or promote specials on their web sites. Both scenarios create a specific window of time for order processing. For example, Internet retailer Gilt Groupe notifies its members of daily sales at noon. By design, there is an inherent urgency that is created, both for the customer to purchase products and for the fulfillment and warehouse operators to process orders and get them shipped in a timely manner.

    THE FUTURE OF CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE IS HERE
    How Assisted Selling is Moving the Conversion Needle for E-tailers

    For all the talk of e-commerce cutting into the sales of brick and mortar merchants, many online retailers know the opposite is also true - online conversion rates and average order values are seldom as high as in-store because personal service often seals the deal. If e-retailers could bring face-to-face service to their web sites and apps, they could please more customers and close more sales. The good news is that now they can, with technology from Vee24.

    Go global, but be prepared to verify

    E-retailers must make sure they’ve got the basics in hand before they chase global sales.

    More than half of the largest North American retailers as measured by their 2012 web sales ship orders to consumers outside the United States, and even more are looking to tap into international e-commerce growth markets like Asia-Pacific and Latin America.

    But there’s more to selling online internationally than setting up a web site. Retailers need to make sure their orders get delivered to the customer, and that’s not always
    easy, especially in emerging markets where the delivery infrastructure can be underdeveloped.
