Upgrades and Updates

During January 2020 we will be undertaking a series of software upgrades to bring our systems to the latest software versions. These upgrades will have very little impact on customer websites. The main purpose of the upgrades is to ensure all the security services are up to date.

Facebook Shop

If you have a Facebook business Page, you can add a shop. You can use this section to list products you're selling and connect with more customers on Facebook. The existing integration between the online shop and Facebook has been depreciated as Facebook changed the rules and integration methods. The new method uses Facebook's own built in Shop capability. If you use Google Shopping you can utilise the same data feed for your Facebook Shop.

Google Merchant Center and Google Shopping


As some of you might know Google Shopping and Google Ads are part of the Google Search Engine Marketing (SEM) services. Google Shopping allows you to show your products in Google search results. Both of these are paid services that work on a cost per click or conversion basis. But there are many good reasons to upload your product to Google.

Google Merchant Center is a portal that allows you to setup an automated upload of your products to Google. It is the backbone of Google Shopping. But it will also review your product content and can provide very good insight to how your products will sell online.

eCorner provide a free and simple set of Product Portals, including Google Shopping, that help you get your products to online search marketing services.

Google Shopping & Google Merchant Center

Google has two search engine marketing (SEM) platforms that work together to enable you to advertise on Google.

Google Merchant Center is where your product information is stored and is populated and updated using the Google Shopping feed created in your online store administration.

Google Ads is where your actual shopping campaigns live and where you will set your budget, manage your bids, gain insights, and make optimisations based on performance.

Can I make money selling on Amazon or eBay?

Read entire post: Can I make money selling on Amazon or eBay?

What are marketplaces and are they right for me?

Marketplaces make up a huge percentage of online sales in 2018, with many consumers now using the likes of eBay and Amazon as a research tool and their first point of contact on the net when considering a new product purchase.

Marketplaces make online shopping ludicrously convenient for consumers, because of the huge product catalogues and sizable number of third-party sellers providing a range of products, prices and shipping options in every category.

The challenge for online retailers is two-fold, (1) is selling on an online marketplace right for my business and (2) which marketplace(s) should I invest my time and effort into to get the best returns.
