New Integration with BigBuy

From today Sellfer’s customers can start their own business and sell products with just a few clicks thanks to the BigBuy app. BigBuy is a B2B wholesale platform specializing in the supply of a multitude of products to customers that sell on the online channel throughout Europe. They specialize in Dropshipping and in the wholesale of large quantities. Shop owners can find it in the Apps menu of their Shop Admin.

 

Through the app, you will be able to take advantage of a wide range of leading brands and numerous categories at very competitive prices that BigBuy offers to its customers. Once you have registered at bigbuy.eu and activated the Ecommerce package you can start importing products to your shop. You decide what margin to add to the products whether to use recommended prices of the platform or to add your own. The best part of the integration is that you can import products without worrying about the calculation from currency to currency since BigBuy operates in euro. All calculations are performed automatically by our platform. Another plus of the integration is that you can manage all your products and orders directly through your shop admin. No need to jump from page to page to search for the correct order so you can complete it and send it to the customer. The whole process is automated so that you can grow your business with ease without unnecessary worries. 

 

If you think that Dropshipping is for you don’t hesitate and activate your BigBuy app. Visit our support center for more information about other useful integrations.

Design changes

Small design changes are coming with the new version, too. For instance, the search bar has been updated to a more compact version so as not to intrude on users.

Sellfer version 1.0.1 is live

New updates have arrived both for the shop owners and their customers. Here’s what’s new.

E-conomic App Integration

From today all our customers can use the E-conomic app completely for free. E-conomic is an accounting program that combines all the bookkeeping needs of your company in one place. Now all our customers can take advantage of the integration by linking their economic account to their shop. The one-step activation process is like a child’s play and after that, you are ready to sell. When the app is active all the invoices that you create in your shop admin will be visible to manage in your E-conomic account.

Upgraded Facebook Catalog Manager

Our Shop Owners can sell their products through Facebook, as well. With the last update it’s even easier and faster to create your first catalog or why not a couple of catalogs and use them on different occasions as season sales for example. From your shop admin, you can create files containing different products in it and upload it to the Catalog manager. All products’ images, variants, and discounts if the products have any will be uploaded to Facebook. This way you can start selling through Facebook without effort.

See All My Data

As Sellfer is GDPR compliant, so are its shops. With the last update, we added extra functionality for users to download their data from the shops without contacting the support. Now when the customers are in their profile they can request to export their data that’s available in the shop. This way they’ll receive a mail that will give them a link to download the information, this includes invoices, user addresses, orders. Guests of the shop can request to download their information too but as they don’t have an account they can do this through the Privacy policy of the shop.

Cookie policy feature updated

Meet our new, GDPR compliant cookie policy. Due to The EU law on personal data, the General Data Protection Regulation, website/shop visitors have the right to receive specific, up-to-date information on what data is registered about them, for what purpose, and where it is sent. This affects cookie policy, too. Since 25 May 2018, websites cannot force their visitors to accept all cookies that are active on the websites. Now users have the right to know what user data cookies track, for what purpose, and even have the right to decline them all. Strictly following the regulation we from Sellfer updated our shops’ cookie policy.

 

We’ve gathered the cookies into four groups – Necessary, Functional, Analytics, and Marketing. Users can read more for each group and what data they track before deciding which cookie to accept. It’s important to know that the group with Necessary cookies is always active and those cookies cannot be switched off. These cookies are essential for the website to function. Users may disable them by changing their browser settings, but this may affect how the website functions. All of the other three groups can be declined if that’s what the user wants. Once accepted the cookies will be stored on the user’s device for 60 days if they don’t delete them manually.

Shop owners have app interface in their admins that allows them to edit the text in the consent box if they want to, of course. Following the regulation rules, we’ve added an option for easy access to the cookies if users subsequently changed their status regarding the cookies. Once accepted or declined, users’ consent can be changed anytime following the link in the footer of the shop, for instance.

How to create amazing website with free images and videos?

Hi Sellfers! So you’ve created your store and now what? You’ve probably heard that half the impression of an online store is made from the photos. Therefore, you need breathtaking photos but on the other hand, you don’t want to exceed your budget. Most people would bet on pictures from the internet. Well, if that’s your case you need to read this article right away.

So let’s see what are dos and don’ts when using images from the internet

Dos :

  • It is good to use images from specialized sites. They offer a full variety of photos, graphics, videos and etc. which you can use for different kinds of apps.
  • You better use images that show the essence of your business. Make sure that pictures and videos contribute to the creation of the site’s individuality and not just to be there because it looks better.
  • Anyone who understands a bit of design will tell you that it’s preferred to have photos with the correct size, resolution, and orientation. Also, always choose photos with high quality.
  • You need to be careful with what license the image is and how it can be used.

Don’ts :

  • We don’t recommend you to download pictures directly from Google. First, they may not be appropriate for your site at all, such as quality, size, and so on. And secondly, they may have copyrights. You must be aware that using unauthorized images can cause serious consequences.
  • Do not choose too common photos. Still, you want to make your site noticeable and unique.
  • Don’t try to fit an image where it doesn’t belong. For example, a portrait-oriented picture in a landscape-oriented location or vice versa.
  • Last but not least, don’t forget to rename images. This way Google will understand what’s in the picture.

After reading this, you must be a little worried. Don’t be. Sellfer to the rescue. We’ve gathered some pretty interesting and useful sites from where you can download free pictures and videos and forget all your cares.

  • Pixels.com
  • Freeimages.com
  • Pixabay.com
  • Freepic.com
  • Pngtree.com

Other excellent resources for free videos are:

  • Videos.pixels.com
  • Videvo.net

Now you are ready to create an amazing online store, without declaring bankruptcy.
