NEW: Unify for Square is here

Unify for Square is hereYup, you guessed it. Unify for Square is now a thing.

Finally, there’s a solution that automates and syncs all Square sales data, liberating SMBs from operational headaches and bookkeeping woes.  This first-of-its-kind, easy-to-deploy software records and syncs all Square data reliably and automatically, and it’s brand new. In fact, just today we announced this new solution with Square to save small businesses time and money by automating their bookkeeping for them. This amazing solution empowers Square merchants to automate, schedule, and post all of their sales information directly into NetSuite or QuickBooks. With options to post either individual sales or daily summaries, these integrations—Unify for NetSuite and Unify for QuickBooks respectively—automatically record all expenses, revenue streams, and sales tax to easily reconcile accounts.@Webgility announces #Unify for @Square. #Sync sales with @NetSuite, @QuickBooks, or @Xero Click To Tweet

Like all versions of Unify, Unify for Square takes the mystery out of financials—letting merchants see and record fees in their NetSuite or QuickBooks account for each Square transaction from all locations. Now companies can easily track what they’ve charged in sales tax to be ready come filing time. In addition, merchants can, for the first time, fully reconcile e-commerce transactions in NetSuite or QuickBooks and see exactly what they’ve paid in marketplace fees and expenses, Square charges, and shipping costs.

Partner Profile: Andy Eastes, Founder and CEO, SkuVault

Andy Eastes, CEO SkuVaultSkuVault CEO Andy Eastes’ story started in middle school when he began selling things online out of his friends’ parents’ basements, garages, and attics. That eventually evolved into estate sales and then actual stores with actual vendors. Then he helped start an apparel and footwear e-commerce company in Louisville, Kentucky where he soon built his first inventory system. Shortly thereafter he put himself back in the e-commerce business by building the prototype of SkuVault, then called Epic, which he sold to two customers, one of which is still using it today. In December 2012, he launched the web-based system which is now known as SkuVault.Check out this partner profile and get to know Andy Eastes, #CEO of @SkuVault. #Unify Click To Tweet

Your Guide to Amazon’s Best Sellers Rank

Your Guide to Amazon’s Best Sellers RankUnderstanding how it works
Also known as ‘sales rank,’ Amazon ranks products on an hourly basis according to how much time has elapsed since one was last sold. So if an item has just been sold, it’ll have a pretty high ranking, as opposed to something that’s been languishing for a whole hour. Here’s an example showing the best sellers rank on Amazon for Joe Wick’s book, Lean in 15, which is currently ranked at number 12.@Amazon’s Best Sellers Rank. What you need to know about this mysterious number. @RepricerExpress Click To Tweetlean-15-bsr

What does it really mean?
What many buyers get confused about is what exactly the sales rank signifies. While it does speak to, and we quote Amazon here, “how well a product is selling overall, it doesn’t always indicate how well an item is selling among other similar items.” It’s a rather isolated measurement, as opposed to being able to compare it within and across categories. Also, the short time-frame during which the best sellers rank is calculated means that it’s an extremely small sample pool. Say you’ve got a very small sales rank number (i.e. as close to 1 as possible) — to assume it’s a hot seller may be incorrect, as the buyer, could simply be looking at something that’s been sold just a few seconds or minutes ago.
