  • Turning E-commerce Into The New Local Store

    25 July 2014

    One of the most remarkable things the internet has offered retailing businesses is an incredible connection with their customers.

Similarly, a good postcode address finder can help make the shopping process take mere seconds.

    But, this all does very little to help e-commerce brands stand out. With a smartp...

  • Will your customers fill out that form

    9 August 2014

    When you launch an e-commerce site, you'll want the business to come rolling in. However, one thing that stops many potential customers from spending with a site is the need to fill out long forms.

    E-commerce offers the potential of easy shopping for the customer. After all, they can buy whatever they need from the comfort of their own home, any time of the day. When ease of use is the primary advantage of the service, everything about it needs to be easy.

  • Is your postcode address finder causing customers to abandon their checkout

    15 August 2014

    One of the most common problem areas with ecommerce checkouts is the postcode entry system and address finder, with people choosing to enter their postcode in a number of different ways. For instance, some may enter in lower or upper case, without a space in the middle, or a variety of other common errors. 

    If your website is too strict with how people can enter postcodes, or the method of entry is unclear with confusing error messages, potential customers m...



  • How can call centres use professional postcode software to sound more professional

    9 September 2014

    In order for call centre staff to sound as professional and coherent as possible, they will always need to have the best possible set of tools to refer to - slow and sluggish software will just lead to endless pauses and opportunities for unwanted small talk.

    An online shopping customer experience study in May 2012 found that up to 80% of online shoppers who had placed items in the shopping cart then left the site without making a purchase. Needless to say, these numbers are a significant lost opportunity for retailers. 

    If your analytics are telling you a similar story, here are 5 possible barriers that your potential customers might be facing on your site right now.

  • How can accurate postcode data help to calculate shipping costs?

    9 October 2014

    When it comes to working out the cost of shipping for every single customer, the most convenient system is to just charge a flat rate, and possibly offer free shipping when an order hits a certain amount. However, this solution may only work for large-scale eCommerce stores that have negotiated special rates with their courier, and they may even have their own service for shipping goods. For smaller traders and companies that send out large and bulky items, the main objective is usually...
