For this purpose, Eishops has enabled an "add to cart" option, which allows sellers to add products they like to the cart and continue browsing until they are ready to checkout and pay for the items bought.

This is a crucial feature in ensuring customers stay hooked to your store, as a lot of buyers prefer adding items to cart and paying for them later, once they are done browsing through everything.

2. Business-to-Consumer (B2C)

Like other top-notch e-commerce platforms, EIshops provides a "hosted" solution to sellers as well. Eishops owns the servers it operates on, and there is no external web hosting that you need to sign up or pay for to run a B2C.

Marketing Tools

Starting a business may not be the most difficult task for an aspiring business owner; however, the promotion of products to broaden the clientele can be tiresome for many.

To ensure that your brand’s message gets across hundreds and thousands, if not millions, effective marketing tools and strategies are necessary for every business – no matter how big or small.

Sellers of B2B stores can also opt for paid traffic options, which comes with additional costs to the seller. For B2B sellers, Eishops places at their disposal opportunities like starting a blog to enable sellers to publish articles,vlogs, podcasts, and even infographics to their store. Content creation specific to the business will keep customers engaged with the brand or business and possibly convert first-time buyers into recurring buyers.This would allow sellers to save money, which would otherwise be spent on marketing strategies external to the Eishops platform.

In the age of the global pandemic, digital marketing strategies are the top priority of every business to increase their revenue, and this can cost a lot, especially to small businesses. Eishops considers your business needs and is ready to assist you.

Our B2C sellers can promote their products on the Eishops homepage free of cost.

Optimizing Product Listing

To abet our sellers in gaining maximum traffic to their storefront and sell more, we have equipped Eishops with modern marketing tools, like SEO. The product description must be precise and optimized for search engines to increase organic traffic to the store’s page.

SEO Tools

Sellers can optimize their product listing by employing best SEO practices, like conducting extensive research on their product, competing sellers, and their product descriptions to enlist keywords that are most relevant and sought by the target audience.

We suggest, once you have gathered all the relevant keywords, to add these into all sections of the product listing, from the title of the product, to the description, and also the meta-description, which will be displayed on the search engine when a potential buyer searches for the product you are offering.

In terms of the site’s overall look, Eishops provides these that are responsive and optimized for efficient user experience. Such SEO practices will help buyers in browsing through the store swiftly and smoothly.

High-Quality Images

Since visual content is more appealing to the buyers than written, we suggest you insert high-quality, professional-grade images of your product. This would enhance customer's attention towards the product that your brand offers, even if it is the same product a hundred others are selling.

Make sure to precisely mention the highlighting features of your product – its uses, advantages, everything. Sellers must be careful about the needs and wants of their buyers, and Eishops recommends you highlight all these aspects in the product description.

Customer Service

Studies have stated that attracting new customers can cost you five times more than retaining the existing clientele.

Once your customer base is satisfied with your product or the quality of your service, your reputation will only enhance, and revenue will increase. However, it can be difficult to keep your customers hooked onto your brand if the support and service you provide wavers easily. Therefore, Eishops believes in increasing its transparency by increasing loyalty to their customers.

We provide 24/7 support and assistance to our sellers; our friendly customer care team is actively engaging with the sellers to ensure the proper and smooth functioning of all businesses on Eishops. There is a 24-hour live support system available within our circuit, as well as a website chat option for your queries and concerns.

Eishops grants its customers services and facilities that are beyond comparison with any of its competitors.

Business Reports

As a business owner, you realize the importance of reports, whether sales, marketing, or financial. Whether small-scale or a large-scale business, reports provide a benchmark to compare the past performance with the current period and aid in making better decisions for the future operations of a business.

Eishops facilitate their sellers by giving them access to downloading business reports and data sufficient to gauge business performance. 

Sellers can download all reports from the Seller Panel in .csv format. These reports can be regarding products, inventory, sales, expenses, revenue, and much more.There is no need to install or use a third-party to download and export your business-related data from Eishops to your computer, unlike what other e-commerce platforms demand.

Tax Policy

Online money-making of any kind is met with some skepticism by tax authorities, whether you own an e-commerce store, a blog, or even a YouTube channel!

Since sales can be made in various ways, with more than one income streams filling your bank account, such features alarm the authorities, and business owners are thrown with various tax rates.

To comply with every government's orders and taxation policies, Eishops permits sellers to handle their taxation matters independently. Sellers are responsible for the collection and payment of all sorts of taxes.

If purchased items are shipped outside the seller's country, the product's recipient must pay any excise, import, service-related taxes; neither Eishops nor the seller is responsible for paying this. For further information, sellers can read Eishops Tax Policy here.

However, sellers must know Eishops will collect information that proves our clients' identity, mainly through their registration as sellers, when buyers place an order, or through email marketing.
