Getting Your Books Ready for Santa

books-santaAt part 1 of our “Christmas in July” webinar series, I gave it to you straight: “Don’t be a victim of your own success.” Yes, it sounds like a luxury problem, but we’ve seen it take down many an e-commerce business. The scenario goes something like this: Sales are booming, orders are coming in, and then the holiday season hits. Suddenly inventory disappears and there’s no way to keep up.

Sync payment processor fees? Done.

Ecc_puzzle As promised, we’re continuing to improve eCC Cloud. Effective on July 1, eCC Cloud fills in more puzzle pieces for multi-channel e-commerce businesses by automating payment processor fees, specifically those of PayPal, Shopify Payments, and Stripe. This instant, math-free reconciliation allows sellers to see exactly where their money is going, with the click of a button. Users will now enjoy a 1:1 match between their sales orders and the fees charged by their payment processors, with each order broken out into gross sales, fees, and net sales.

To review the specific details of this update and see how to implement this feature, have a look at this video.
