The home and garden industry reaches everything from helping consumers build the perfect garden or patio to inspiring a new design for a bedroom. Whether your e-commerce business focuses more on a niche or whether you sell a wide variety of general home and garden merchandise, reaching more customers is likely a top goal. By adding more online channels and managing them well, more and more customers will be able to purchase your products – allowing your business to expand faster than ever.
For home and garden e-commerce businesses, there can be a lot of competition. Everywhere from big box stores to small boutiques sell items in this category. That’s why it’s important to grow your customer base and be able to handle large numbers of orders across many channels. By selling on multiple large online channels – Walmart and Amazon among them – you’ll quickly increase the number of orders you receive. And in order to quickly and smoothly ship out those orders, Sellercloud’s omnichannel features will help you keep everything sorted.
And when it comes to home and garden, many items are large (such as fireplaces or outdoor furniture), fragile (planting pots), or even perishable (seeds may expire). To prevent costly returns, fraud of expensive items, or selling expired stock, it’s necessary to keep close track of warehouse items. Ensure all your stock is up-to-date with Sellercloud’s warehouse features. For example, prevent backordering by using Sellercloud’s auto-reorder feature. And if a customer does need to return an item, you can track any communication and the return information right from Sellercloud.
