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.”

Although behind retail giant Amazon, Newegg and Rakuten.com websites are among the most popular marketplaces available to online retailers, ranked in the top ten most trustworthy retailers and the top three ecommerce companies worldwide, respectively. The new software integrations make it easier for Rakuten.com and Newegg sellers to sync inventory, sales orders, shipping and fulfillment data across sales channels.

“Connecting our technology with Newegg and Rakuten.com is part of our continued effort to provide efficient ecommerce automation software to a growing market.” said Chief Operating Engineer Darrin Kidd. Ecomdash customers now have additional sales channel options to “broaden their product exposure and increase sales,” Kidd said.

The average ecomdash user has been able to increase sales by 23% quarter over quarter after implementing ecomdash as a supply chain and workflow automation solution.

Introducing the Facebook Groups App

By Shirley Sun, Product Manager

People use Facebook Groups every day to stay in touch with family, collaborate on projects, plan trips and offer support to friends.

Today, we’re introducing a new Facebook Groups app that helps people share faster and more easily with all the groups in their life. We built this app with the people who use Groups the most in mind, like:

  • Students from Donda’s House, an arts nonprofit in Chicago, who use groups to stay in touch during and after a 12-week music program
  • A class of dental students in Brazil who use a group to post notes and reminders about upcoming tests and due dates
  • Nine best friends spread out across Japan, Malaysia, Singapore, Hong Kong and England who use a group to keep connected

Here’s how it works:

When you open the app, you’ll see all your Facebook Groups in one place. Groups you use most frequently are at the top, and you can quickly move between each group.

Groups

Easily start a new group by tapping Create.

groupsscreen2

You can also track notifications and easily control which notifications you want to see.

groupsscreen3

In the new Discover tab, you’ll see groups suggested to you based on Pages you’ve liked, groups your friends are in and where you live.

groupsscreen4

You can still use Facebook Groups in the main Facebook app and on desktop, and over time we’ll continue to make those experiences faster and better, too.

Facebook Groups, part of Facebook Creative Labs, is available in all countries on Android and iOS today.

Shop the World: eBay’s New Global Brand Campaign

By Richelle Parham, CMO, eBay North America

I am thrilled to announce today the launch of eBay’s global brand campaign, “Shop the World,” illustrating how the moments of inspiration that surround us every day can be instantly shoppable on eBay. The campaign brings to life the company’s unique position in commerce: eBay’s unmatched selection of 800 million listings paired with eBay’s multiscreen technology means people can instantly shop the world’s inspiration – anytime, anywhere.

Designed to put eBay top-of-mind with consumers during the most important time of the year for commerce – the holiday season – this campaign is a celebration of our community of global sellers and an invitation to shoppers everywhere to act on your inspiration. I hope that it inspires the entire eBay community as much as it has inspired me.

Some will begin to see our campaign on TV and online next Monday, October 13th. It will continue to roll out across the United States, Australia, United Kingdom, and Germany in the coming weeks, with more markets to come in 2015. The campaign was created in partnership with Goodby Silverstein & Partners and shows how any and every moment that inspires you – from rock concerts to street artists, classic films to marathons – can be yours on eBay.

The campaign launches in conjunction with themed collections of shoppable inventory on eBay.com. We also invite you to visit our social channels – Twitter,Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, LinkedIn and Google+.

eBay understands that the way people shop has changed. People want to buy whatever inspires them: anytime, anywhere. As one of the world’s largest marketplaces with over 800 million listings from a diverse community of global sellers – from individuals to small and medium-sized businesses to beloved brands – we offer incredible inventory: more than 80% of sold items are new; and 78% of Gross Merchandise Volume is fixed price (Buy It Now).

The campaign coincides with the release of Interbrand’s “Best Global Brands” report in which eBay is named the #28 most valuable global brand. eBay is not only one of the world’s most recognizable brands, but a rapidly evolving company and global commerce leader. “Shop the World” showcases eBay today, a modern, trusted marketplace – true to its roots of connecting a global community of buyers and sellers, while continuously innovating to shape the future of shopping.

We invite you to view the anthem here, and hope this campaign inspires you to shop the world.[truedelay videoloc=”” vid=”nOdwlff_2Zs” introloc=”” bt=”no” payment_link=”” redirect_url=”” logo_url=”” splash=”” logo_link=”” start_sec=”0″ vwidth=”640″ vheight=”360″ appear_min=”1″ appear_sec=”2″ image_link=”https://www.thatkat.com/wp-content/plugins/wp-video-commando/images/large-button2.png” ct_skin=”tube” inout=”intro-only” pr=”redirect” ct=”yes” ap=”no” nt=”no” fs=”no” sb=”no” version=”1.6″ logo_pos=”2″ transparency=”80″ fadeout=””]
