How to get the most out of an online e-commerce shopping application

Using Your Shopping Cart

Effectively When you go to your favorite grocery store, little is more annoying than getting a shopping cart with wobbly wheels and one that squeaks like a laughing hyena. Such an occurrence really puts a damper on the entire shopping experience. The same can be said for online shopping carts. If they are clunky and lacking in functionality, the entire shopping experience is cheapened to the point that all but your most loyal of customers will go elsewhere. Consider the following ways to use your ecommerce shopping cart software more effectively and gain customers as a result.

Provide Vivid Descriptions and Pictures

If your site contains few to no pictures, it will be difficult to convince consumers to take you very seriously. Consumers want to see what they are purchasing. Since it is not possible to feel the physical merchandise being offered online, pictures are the next best thing. Your shopping cart should contained vivid descriptions and digital quality pictures that encapsulate the true essence of what it is that you are selling. If you can do that right within your shopping cart, visitors will just need to click a simple button to add it to the cart. It really is that simple, and then you will see your sales increase as a result.

Make Payment a Snap

Imagine filling your cart up in the grocery store only to get to the checkout line and find no cashiers available to help you. Perhaps they are all on break or they just did not show up for work. Whatever the reason, you will be tempted to leave the store without your items given the level of frustration that you feel. Likewise, your online customers will leave a full online cart of items without paying for them if you do not provide them with an easy checkout option. This means that you need to have a payment channel that is simple to use and does not require a lot of time. The quicker and more seamless you can make the process, the better off you will be in the end.

Integrate the Cart Into the Site Itself

Visitors to your site need to be able to find the shopping cart easily, no matter what page they might navigate to. The best way to do this is to make sure the software that you use actually integrates the cart right into the website itself. This will enable the consumer to click on the cart at any time and see what they have put in there. This should be easily updated so that visitors can change the quantity ordered on the go, as well as delete any items that are no longer needed. Again, the key here is to make this entire process as easy as possible. Do not make consumers go to a third party website in order to checkout. It is not professional and will cost you customers in the long run. These are just four of the many ways that you can use an online shopping cart to your advantage. Remember that the key is to make the cart functional and easy to use. This is a tool that you have at your disposal as a business owner, so make sure that you use it wisely. If you do, your business will almost certainly grow as a result.

Who else has the same thoughts about mundane tasks

I’m not necessarily the type of person to point out my faults to others, but in this case I’m going to make an exception. I’m lazy. I mean really lazy. I’d prefer if someone else could take all my mundane work and just do it for me.

I know I’m not the only one – that’s why there’s so many different applications out there for automating work. And I think that’s a good thing, because if you want to focus on growing your business (and your bottom line), you need to be spending your time wisely.

While we’ve done everything we can to make fast and easy to use, today you have the opportunity to take it that last step and go completely hands off. When you select the Lazy option, you literally don’t do anything at all other than put in the links you want shared. That’s it. Other users will push your links out to the social media sites, and you collect the social buzz.

Nintendo Swings positive Thanks to Switch Console

Japanese video game giant Nintendo returned to the black for the quarter ended in June thanks to the success of its new Switch console.

Nintendo recorded an operating profit of $144.95 million (5.13 billion yen) for its fiscal first quarter, compared with a year-ago loss of 24.5 billion yen. Revenue jumped 150 percent to $1.37 billion (154.07 billion yen), the company said Wednesday.

The Kyoto-based company sold 1.97 million Switch consoles in the quarter, taking its total sales to 4.7 million units. Nintendo has been unable to keep up with demand for the hybrid home-portable console, and stores in Japan have been operating lotteries for customers to get the chance to purchase one.

The success of the console, along with that of mobile game Pokemon Go, have helped push Nintendo’s stock price up 60 percent over the last year. Its market value exceeded that of Sony Corp. last month. However, Sony stock has also been on a tear — the company has more recently pushed its market capitalization to around $51 billion, compared with $45 billion for Nintendo.

Nintendo is forecasting sales of 10 million Switch consoles for the full fiscal year to March 2018 and operating profit of 65 billion yen ($580 million at current rates).

The company was late to move into mobile gaming, but revenue from titles including Super Mario Run, along with IP licensing, rose 450 percent to $80 million (9 billion yen) for the latest quarter.

Nintendo’s stock closed up 1.3 percent at 35,770 yen ($320) in Tokyo before the earnings announcement.

Zoo Visitors Spot Eerie Sight in Sky Above Elephant… Horrified to Learn Truth — Conservative Tribune

Despite a clear record of horrifying failure throughout history, some still insist socialism and centrally-planned economics is a viable form of governance that merely needs a few tweaks here and there to make a society flourish. The latest example of that flat-out falsehood is Venezuela, a once prosperous and beautiful oil-rich nation in South America that……

  • General Tony Thomas has blamed leakers for the apparent survival of ISIS leader
  • Says US and allies have killed 60,000-70,000 ISIS soldiers in Iraq and Syria
  • But leader al-Baghdadi apparently remains alive despite conflicting reports
  • Now Thomas blames 2015 New York Times report for giving away US advantage

By Keith Griffith For, 22 July 2017:

A top US general has blamed leaks to the New York Times for giving ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi the ability to evade American forces seeking to kill him.

General Tony Thomas, who leads Special Operations Command, said Friday at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado that his teams were ‘particularly close’ to al-Baghdadi after a 2015 raid, Fox News reported.

That operation, a Delta Force commando raid in eastern Syria, killed ISIS oil minister Abu Sayyaf and captured his wife, yielding a trove of information about the terror group’s operations and logistics.

‘That was a very good lead. Unfortunately, it was leaked in a prominent national newspaper about a week later and that lead went dead,’ said Thomas, in an apparent reference to a New York Times report about the raid from June 2015.

General Tony Thomas, who leads Special Operations Command, blamed this 2015 report in the New York Times for tipping off al-Baghdadi to the insights gained from a Delta Force raid

The ruins of the Grand al-Nuri Mosque in Mosul, where al-Baghdadi declared his caliphate, are seen earlier this week. A US general is blaming leaks for allowing the ISIS leader to escape

That report read in part: ‘New insights yielded by the seized trove — four to seven terabytes of data, according to one official — include how the organization’s shadowy leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, operates and tries to avoid being tracked by coalition forces.’

The New York Times report even detailed knowledge gained about al-Baghdadi’s security precautions for meeting and communicating with his lieutenants, including the use of wives to pass messages.

‘The challenge we have [is] in terms of where and how our tactics and procedures are discussed openly,’ Thomas said.

‘There’s a great need to inform the American public about what we’re up to. There’s also great need to recognize things that will absolutely undercut our ability to do our job,’ he continued.

President Donald Trump seized on the remarks early Saturday morning, tweeting: ‘The Failing New York Times foiled U.S. attempt to kill the single most wanted terrorist,Al-Baghdadi.Their sick agenda over National Security’.

The New York Times did not immediately respond to a request for comment from

homas offered a ‘conservative’ estimate that US forces and allies had killed 60,000 to 70,000 ISIS fanatics, saying of al-Bagdadi that ‘everyone who worked for him initially is dead or gone’.

Meanwhile, amid conflicting reports last month that Russian forces had killed al-Baghdadi, US Defense Secretary James Mattis has said he believes the ISIS leader is still alive.

‘I think Baghdadi is alive, I think he’s alive and I’ll believe otherwise when we know we’ve killed him,’ Mattis told Pentagon reporters on Friday.

‘We are going after him, but we assume he is alive.’

Asked whether al-Baghdadi still plays a command role in ISIS, Mattis mused: ‘To define that role, is it operational? Is it strategic? Is it propaganda? Is it spiritual? Is it physical? I can’t define it, but until I see his body, I’m going to assume he is alive.’

There have been persistent rumors that Baghdadi has died in recent months.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a longtime conflict monitor, last week said it had heard from senior IS leaders in Syria’s Deir Ezzor province that Baghdadi was dead.

Bomber Pilot Knew Exactly What to Do

It’s a nightmare scenario out of a movie: Over 150 passengers are sitting on an airliner cruising at 30,000 feet. Without warning, the pilot slumps over from a heart attack. That unlikely scenario is what happened aboard a 737 jetliner headed across the country… but then the veteran pilot of Air Force B-1 bombers stepped……
