We’re headed to Xerocon!

We’re headed to Xerocon!Yes, it’s true—Webgility’s hitting the road again as a Kickoff Exhibitor at Xerocon 2017 in Austin, Texas, on December 6-7. In fact, we’re so excited about this trip, we’re inviting all Xerocon attendees to stop by the Webgility lounge for a demo of Unify and to share the secret phrase “make selling easier” for a chance to win an Amazon Echo. Continue your Wednesday evening with Webgility and trusted partner, ShipStation, for cocktails, apps and more fun raffle prizes at Revelry Kitchen + Bar from 5-8pm on December 6. Register in advance here.

At Xerocon, we look forward to revealing how our enhanced integration enables accountants and online sellers to

  • quickly track revenue across sales channels like Shopify and BigCommerce;
  • simply and accurately record expenses and fees from marketplaces such as Amazon and eBay;
  • better utilize Xero’s powerful inventory capabilities by syncing price and quantity with online sales channels, automatically building their inventory list in Xero from their sales channel data; and
  • sync data between Xero and shipping apps such as ShipStation and ShippingEasy.

As you know, our Unify software features a powerful integration with Xero that makes the tracking and syncing of financial data and inventory easier than ever. We’re so inspired by the creativity and innovation of Webgility’s Xero users, we’ve added more functionality to Unify to make selling easier for this special community. We stand by our mission to make it possible for online sellers to focus on their passion and growing their business rather than wasting their time on operational logistics.#Xerocon!

Holiday Prep Ideas for 2017

By creating a strategy now, retailers can take advantage of the holiday  retail peak with optimized cross-channel experiences, initiatives aimed at customer retention, and marketing focused on the entire season (not just a few key days).

According to Justuno, the Holidays are the most important time for retailers. If there’s one time of the year to put forth all your marketing efforts, it’s now.

This is a massive opportunity to gain new customers, drive repeat purchases, and ultimately increase sales for 2017. But this can only happen effectively if you start preparing today. Here are some useful tips and ideas that will help you get started.@ShipStation offers simple tips to help you get ready for the holiday selling season. #Unify Click To Tweet
