Fortunately e-commerce stores still have the upper hand, with no looking for parking spaces, queues, bumping into people and fights at the tills a small sale of your own should be very effective to convince your customers to stay indoors.

Planning is essential in running a successful e-commerce store and with a little automation, you can ensure you’re plans are put into action even when you’re away from your computer.
How Does Promotion Automation Work?
Our e-commerce sites allow their owners to decide exactly how their promotions work by setting the following details in advance.
- Which products / categories will be included in the promotion.
- How much each product will be during the sale, or by what percentage are products reduced.
- The date the promotion / sale will begin.
- The date the promotion / sale will end.
Once these are set the store owner can concentrate on the more important things such as processing and shipping orders, or if it’s a holiday sale.. actually enjoying the holiday!
