 social network for businesses
NEW FEATURE
For Retailers

Do you wish you could more easily connect with other stores that sell a brand? For example, do you wish that you could ask another store what is selling from Juliska--and share strategies about selling more? Now you can...

Your store can now more easily connect with other sellers of a brand. Here's how:
1. Log in to your Bridge.
2. Browse to a brand.
3. In the horizontal bar above the slideshow, there is a new link that says "Retailers." Click this.
4. You'll be taken to a Connections page showing you all the retailers that report they sell this brand.

Your store can use this information to connect with these stores and help your store grows sales for this brand.

In the example shown a retailer that sells Juliska can easily view 275 stores that say they sell Juliska. ...Read rest of Chalk

 fraud

Are you ready to lose $500? You could if you don't update your authorize.net account settings.

Recently, an identity thief entered 2,000 different credit cards on a retailer's Bridge website. They did so using a bot that entered in card information automatically into the website.
Please note: an identify thief can do this process on just about any e-commerce platform—it’s not unique to Bridge. Credit card fraud is widespread online. Many thieves buy files of 1,000s of stolen credit cards and ’test’ them on innocent e-commerce sites like ours.

Even though many of the entered cards were 'not good,' the Bridge retailer was charged small amounts for each of these attempts which added up to hundreds of dollars. About 40 of the 2,000 attempts did get approved, and even though the retailer didn'...Read rest of Chalk

You can now easily see how much tax you've collected on orders.

On the new Tax Collection page, you can set a date range and view taxes collected. This makes it easier to report these taxes.

How to visit your Tax page:
1. Visit your Bridge.
2. At the very top, click on “Management.”
3. On Management home page, under “Reporting,” click on “Tax Collection.”

In the example shown, we've replaced actual tax numbers with "XXX.XX" for privacy purposes.

Did you know that international postal treaties affect indie stores? They do. Increasingly, consumers are skipping buying local to buy online—and that online purchase is empowered by super cheap shippping rates from Asia. When this transaction occurs online vs in-store, many parties here in the U.S. lose. What do we do? Let’s ask ourselves if it’s fair that shipping something from Hong Long to LA is cheaper than from LA to New York—which it currently is.

 special import
Do you offer 'special order' items? These may be custom built items or items imported from overseas upon request. If so, it's important to let customers know this because these items often take longer to arrive to customers. There may also be special terms and restocking fees that apply to them.

You can now designate items as Special Import. This information will appear on the item's Details page.

Designate items as Special Import:
1. Login to Bridge.
2. Visit item.
3. Below product name, click on “Edit.”
4. In floating window, on the SKUs tab, please find the area “Special Imports.” In the drop down area, select “Yes.”
Save changes.

In the last 9 years, Sears has closed about 500 Sears stores (more than half its locations) and closed about 900 Kmarts (more than 60% of those locations).

Even if Sears overbuilt, that’s a significant retrenching.
