Ecomdash Unveils New Low Price Option, Now Even More Affordable for Small Businesses

New Low Price Helps Small and Mid-Sized Businesses Access Comprehensive Integration Software
13 July, 2015. Charlotte, N.C.
Inventory and sales order software, ecomdash, has an all new low price option for its award-winning ecommerce offering. Businesses will be able to sign up to streamline and manage ecommerce operations for as little as $25 a month – that’s half of the original entry price of $50.
With such low barriers to entry and great potential for scalability and success, entrepreneurs are coming in droves to try their hand at ecommerce. Ecomdash intends to be the perfect solution for this market, maintaining an extremely low barrier for anyone trying to sell online. Even very young businesses can afford a $25/mo investment for software that has been recorded to net returns in the thousands percentiles.
This new low price grants small businesses access to comprehensive inventory management software from the very beginning. Businesses with less than 100 sales orders per month are eligible, and can get set up in minutes to grow and scale. Regardless of what customers pay, all receive the same quality support through phone, email, chat services and an extensive knowledge center, for free. This level of support is unlike anything offered in the integration software space for small-medium businesses today.
Next, ecomdash will unveil a completely redone pricing structure that promises an even more flexible payment system for ecomdash customers and more gradual fluctuations between tiers. Ecomdash understands the speed of ecommerce and how delays can make or break online sales. The software automatically makes the appropriate shifts in scale without slowing or stopping a user’s service, and users are charged solely based on how many sales orders they process each month.
Ecomdash is committed to its small and mid-sized business customers, and wants users to reach accelerated success. “We believe all small and mid-sized ecommerce businesses should have access to affordable, comprehensive multichannel integration software,” said Nick Maglosky, chief executive officer of ecomdash. “Our new pricing structure enables even the very smallest businesses to efficiently manage their ecommerce supply chain and quickly scale operations.”

Listen to That Kat Radio – Podcast 61 – April 14, 2014: Jim Cockrum Coaching with Bob Willey and Nathan Bailey and CLEER Amazon tool with Jordan Malik

 

 

In this episode of That Kat Radio, Kat speaks with Bob Willey and Nathan Bailey about Jim Cockrum Coaching and with Jordan Malik about his amazing new tool for eBay called CLEER. 

 

Before the show started, Kat was joined on the line by Nathan Bailey. Once the show began, they were both joined by Bob Willey, and they all three began to discuss Jim Cockrum Coaching.

Questions that were asked were:

  • What are your ecommerce histories, Nathan and Bob?
  • How did you connect with Jim Cockrum?
  • Does every ecommerce seller need a business coach?
  • How would a good coaching program improve my business?
  • What kind of programs are available through Jim Cockrum’s program and what costs are involved?

Nathan and Bob both have a lot of history in the world of ecommerce. They were both ecstatic to be asked to join Jim Cockrum as coaches for his program. Jim’s program began as a relatively small endeavor, then continued to gather steam. Today, there are thousands of people who can testify that Jim Cockrum has forever changed and improved their businesses. Jim employs Nathan and Bob as coaches who write articles for his blog, discuss strategies with clients and do personal coaching with Jim’s clients as well. These coaching strategies are excellent because they are tailored to your specific business. Not only do you get the expertise of your coach, you get the entire program at your disposal, including hundreds of pages worth of articles about how to sell, what to sell, how to price, etc. This information is invaluable and all available to Jim’s clients. There are several links below, but the main Jim Cockrum Coaching page can be found by clicking the link above.

 

After a commercial break, Kat was joined on the line by Jordan Malik to discuss his newest venture, the CLEER app. 

Questions that were asked were:

  • What is your ecommerce history like, Jordan?
  • What and where are you selling now?
  • Can you describe your newest eBay tool for us?
  • Where can our listeners get this tool?
  • How much does it cost?
  • Tell us about your new “Ask Jordan” podcast and how my listeners can be on it!

Jordan’s new program, CLEER, is a google chrome add on that is available in the chrome app store and helps you find completed eBay listings simply by clicking a few buttons! This can save an incredible amount of time when researching items you are interested in selling. All of us, at one point or another, have had to go to eBay, search for our item, then change our wording around, then change the parameters of the search to the “sold” listings or “completed” listings and we know how frustrating the process can be. Odds are, you’ve had to sort through all of the completed listings before even finding one that sold and how much it sold for. This was a great invention by Jordan and we can’t wait to find out what’s next! Tune in to his podcast to find out more about Jordan, or follow the links below!

That Kat Radio – Podcast 60 -April 7, 2-14: Social Sandi

Listen to That Kat Radio – Podcast 60 – April 7,2014: Escape Hashtag Hell With Social Sandi

 

In this episode of That Kat Radio, Kat spoke with Sandi Garcia, or “Social Sandi” about how to escape hashtag hell.

 

Kat spoke with Sandi about her history in the social media world, as well as the history of hashtags and how to use them effectively. 

Some of the questions that were asked were:

  • Why are they called hashtags instead of pound tags or number tags?
  • What is a hashtag?
  • Are hashtags similar to keywords?
  • Are hashtags searchable?
  • What is the best way to use hashtags on each of the social media channels or platforms?
  • Can using hashtags effectively help your business?

Sandi began as on online seller and quickly graduated to a social media expert, from there, she began helping others with the social media aspect of their businesses. Sandi is referred to within the seller’s circles as “social sandi” because she has so much great knowledge of the  social media channels and how to use them best. Kat allowed the guests to ask any question of Sandi and the one who asked the best question (or the most, as was the case) won a free business consultation with Sandi! Trevor was very excited to have won and I’m sure his business will profit from it wonderfully! If you would like to find out more about Sandi or have your own business consultation, you can find her here

That Kat Radio – Podcast 58 – March 17, 2014: Barrington McIntosh & Charlene Anderson

Listen to That Kat Radio – Podcast 58 – March 17, 2014: Barrington McIntosh and Charlene Anderson

 

In this episode of That Kat Radio, Kat spoke with Barrington McIntosh about international Amazon selling and with Charlene Anderson about sourcing at trade shows.

First, kat spoke with Charlene Anderson (or “Char”) about sourcing inventory at trade shows. Questions that were asked were:

  • How many tradeshows are you planning on attending in 2014?
  • Isn’t it expensive to travel to a tradeshow?
  • How do you make it worthwhile to your business?
  • What kind of eBay/Amazon seller would benefit from attending Tradeshows?
  • How do I get started and choose a Tradeshow to attend?
  • What are your top 3 tips for Tradeshow sourcing?
  • What are your top 3 things to watch out for at tradeshows?
  • How can the audience connect with you and learn more?

 Charlene has been doing the trade show circuit for years now and is considered a pro. She has attended hundreds! Tradeshows can be beneficial to your business and offer countless sources of new inventory. She recommends wearing comfortable clothing and shoes, not deciding on anything until you have done your research and grabbing all the business cards you can!   After speaking to Charlene, Kat spoke to Barrington McIntosh about selling internationally with Amazon. Questions that were asked were:

  • How did you get started in eCommerce?
  • What were your goals when you started?
  • What was the biggest obstacle you had to overcome?
  • What and where are you selling now?
  • What else are you doing in your business besides selling products?
  • Where can the listeners connect with you online to learn more?

Barrington has the prestigious honor of having his business ranked in the top 25% of all Amazon businesses during the 2012 holiday season. He didn’t start out on top, but he earned his position by working hard and by doing what needed to be done. Barrington and Kat discussed how hard it can be to source in an area like Jamaica, where there are NO big box retail stores. Barrington discussed how looking in different places and online for different items can make all the difference. If you find enough specialty items that people want to have, you can truly own the market, as he does. You can find Barrington and learn more about his story at his website, BarringtonMcIntosh.com After speaking to Barrington, we were in for a surprise guest! Kat got Scott Henshaw on the line to discuss the new KIOUIApps product, KIPhoenix!  Questions that were asked were:

  • where did the idea for Ki Phoenix come from?
  • How did you find out about Ki Phoenix and what is it doing for your business?
  • WHY is Ki Phoenix such a game changer?
  • How is business going for you and where can people find you?
  • what’s next for Kioui Apps?

Scott was approached by Jean-Charles to try out the new ap,KI Phoenix for his business. He said he has never used such an easy app! He loves the simplicity and efficiency of the design and will never go back to doing things manually again! Ki Phoenix is an application that keeps your products in stock and the listing up, even if you have run out of stock of an item. If you sell large quantities of items on eBay, this is the app for you! Every time you have to take down a listing, or a listing runs out of your quantity, you must end the listing and start it again when you get your inventory in. Doing this, you lose sales, as well as potential return customers! To find out more about the app, head over to KIOUI Apps.com and check out KI Phoenix! Links from the show:

Amazon Webstores

Amazon webstores have been around for some time now, but I recently went over to take a look around and see if it was something I might be interested. This made me wonder if any of you have decided to open a store on Amazon. I wonder if “branding” is important enough to make the extra cost worthwhile. So, I did some research.

 

The main page of Amazon webstores says “Your brand, Amazon’s expertise. Build your own customized ecommerce site, on your own domain-backed by Amazon technology and expertise. They go on to say that the sites offer complete integration with selling on Amazon, Amazon FBA and your site. Shopping carts, payment processing and hosting are all built in. There are no upfront costs, no long-term contracts and no equipment to buy. They also offer full fraud protection for your site. There are two options for the sites. You can have your own domain/storefront and sell on Amazon for $39.99 a month, or you can simply have your own website for the same price. The features mentioned above are included in both plans. Both options have unlimited bandwidth, storage and SKUs. In fact, the only difference between the two plans seems to be the fees. If you are already selling on Amazon, the fees per transaction are only 1% (on top of the regular Amazon fees) and if you opt just for the storefront, the fees are 2% (plus the regular Amazon fees.)

 

What a great idea! Now, if I had to venture a guess, I would say that most of us already have our own domains set up and running. But for newcomers, I believe this is an excellent opportunity! You get the distinct advantage of having the hosting, payment processing and shopping cart all built in, as well as the security of being backed by Amazon. The fees aren’t bad at all and they offer unlimited bandwidth. If I didn’t already have my site up and running, I might be tempted to open up shop on Amazon. What about you? Is it important enough to keep your brand recognition throughout your sales on Amazon and beyond? Is this something you would be interested in? I highly recommend checking it out!

That Kat Radio – Podcast 53 – January 27, 2013: Wholesale sourcing and SKUVault

Listen to That Kat Radio – Podcast 53 – January 27,2014: Wholesale Sourcing and SKUVault

 

In this episode of That Kat Radio, we discussed wholesale sourcing and SKUVault

 

Today, Kat spoke with Ryan Reger about wholesale sourcing and to and Andy Eastes and Danny Shaw about their product, SKUVault.

 

First, Kat spoke with Ryan Reger from RyanReger.com about his new book, entitled Real Wholesale Sourcing.

Questions that were asked were:

  • Please tell us you got started finding and buying from wholesale companies?
  • Do you think all online sellers should add wholesale buying to their inventory acquisition methods?
  • How do you suggest they get started?
  • Why did you write your book giving away your wholesale sources?

Ryan discussed how he came to discover wholesale sourcing and how it changed his business. Then, Kat and Ryan discussed why he would be so generous as to name his sources for others to find. His new book, Real Wholesale Sourcing, discusses wholesale sourcing in depth and he shares several online companies you can purchase inventory from. Most online entrepreneurs highly value their sources and will not share them. Ryan says that he couldn’t even begin to purchase all of the inventory from these suppliers, and felt he should share these sources so that everyone could benefit from them. Kat and Ryan declared that they would be giving away a free copy of his new book to one person who signed up for his email list today at his site or emailed him to join the list at Ryan@ryanreger.com

After speaking with Ryan, Kat was joined by Andy Eastes and Danny Shaw of SKUVault.

Questions that were asked were:

  • How did SKUVault come about?
  • What does SKU Vault do for eCommerce Sellers?
  • What kind and size of eCommerce seller is SKU Vault helpful for?
  • Are there parts of SKU Vault that are available separately or is it a package deal?
  • What is the cost of SKU Vault and is there a free trial?
  • What else should we know about SKU Vault?

Kat, Andy and Danny discussed the men’s backgrounds and how it directly impacted the creation of SKUVault. They discussed how and why their product came about. They discussed how beneficial it would be to sellers to have SKUs for each of their items across multiple platforms so that inventory management became easier. They discussed how this program is changing the way sellers do business and making their lives much easier. They discussed how very cheap their product is. Kat said that she is using this product and is a big time fan!

 

Kat wrapped up the show by talking about the ecommerce events coming up. She is in charge of the Seabay cruise and is very excited about it. She is also delighted to be taking part in the More Fun Bigger Profits conference this year. Also, they have opened up registration for the eBay Radio Party in March!

KiOui Changes Pricing for Users To Avoid eBay Notifications

What a great idea would it be to start a company that is affordable for sellers of all sizes, that helps with their ebay sales and saves them tons of time for only $0.99 a month? Apparently it has been a great idea, and the success of KiOui (kee-wee) Apps has been very inspiring.  But there is only one thing standing in their way.  When users sign up for the applications the users are sent bi-monthly notifications that their accounts are past due with the company.

The problem? Ebay’s application center does not process payments for less than $1.00.  Although to no fault of ebay, maybe the development team thought who would be crazy enough to create applications for less than $1.00? Because enough user’s were getting frustrated with the bi-monthly notifications and reaching out for support, KiOui decided to take action and solve this in a way that would maintain their low price.  Now they offer a yearly plan, or a plan for the user to have an option to pay more per month.

Current subscribers will need to unsubscribe from their current plan, and resubscribe to a new plan.  This will not effect the application and users settings will remain unchanged.  To learn how watch this video http://youtu.be/DIm-jH3wp6Q.

Here are all the plans KiOui offers:

kiapps

To try any of KiOui’s applications go to the ebay app center.

All 12 of KiOui’s applications are fully supported, everyone with a support issue or suggestion is encouraged to “Open a Ticket” on our website’s support page.

Wildcard Searching on eBay — Still Possible (with a little help)

Guest Post by WatchCount.com

What’s a wildcard, you ask? It has a long, under-the-radar, and noble history in the annals of computer science and database theory. When searching for a range of values — or on eBay, items — simply by appending an asterisk ‘*’, one can obtain an array of targeted search results. Looking for silver coins in the 1940s? “Silver coin 194*” might just be the syntax you need.

Or, save yourself the trouble of specifying plurals by querying “Christmas card*” to home in on eBay titles with “card” or “cards” in them.

Misspellings, plurals, part numbers — the wildcard symbol stands for most any sequence of characters, saving you time and effort when seeking a specific, yet varied, array of results. eBay, like many other search engines, implicitly allowed this capability, and a very focused minority of users knew how to employ this functionality to zero in on the things they sought, on the web, and on eBay.

But in late 2012 eBay felt it needed to drop this feature, as its search engine evolved and fewer and fewer searchers knew about this long-standing, somewhat peculiar, feature. Wildcard search just for some reason didn’t fit into the big picture of eBay’s next-generation search technology, and a small but vocal long-time crowd of buyers lamented the loss of this time-saving trick. So, what to do now?

While eBay still supports some next-best search features (logical OR, negative keywords) to help fill the gap, without a wildcard certain kinds of search strings just aren’t possible any more. Bummer!

Watchcount

Enter WatchCount.com — a 3rd-party website that’s home of some clever alternative eBay search tools, such as an eBay Pulse replacement and Most Watched search tool. At WatchCount.com we got to work on creating and launching a new eBay wildcard search utility, re-enabling wildcard functionality so long-time die-hard searchers can once again utilize the flexibility and expansiveness of the asterisk in their search queries. Free of charge, this tool can be found here.

Our tool leverages the fact that eBay is still quietly running their former search platform on their servers, and our utility taps into that. Just enter your wildcard-supported search query via the WatchCount.om tool, and with a simple click you can view your results on eBay in a wildcard-supported environment. Voila!

Bryan Goodman over at Thrifting with the Boys gave a nice, clear example of searching for Beatles memorabilia from the 1950s, using WatchCount.com’s wildcard search tool. A search of “Beatles 195*” (without quotes) on eBay itself would cause eBay to drop the asterisk and return Beatles items with just “195” in the title — having nothing to do with years in the 1950s. Yuck!

But by specifying that search at the WatchCount.com eBay wildcard search tool, numerous search results appear that include 195_ in the title — specific years that are just what he was originally seeking. The asterisk character fulfills its promise and saves the day! (…In the fine print on our search tool/page, you’ll also see a live example of searching for books on eBay from the 1800s, and how our functional tool measures up to eBay’s current and active search engine.)

As an eBay seller, you might be on the lookout for eBay items to buy and resell on eBay — “eBay arbitrage” as it’s sometimes termed. Perhaps there are things in your specific niche that are often misspelled (ex: “des*” to possibly capture both ‘dessert’ and ‘desert’), include years, decades, or part numbers, or are often listed either in singular or plural forms — and would be much more accessible with a simple wildcard search. If that’s the case, give the WatchCount.com wildcard tool a whirl and see if it helps you locate the eBay listings you’re seeking.
