Is Your Ecommerce Website Ready for Black Friday and Cyber Monday?

Website checklist for Black Friday and Cyber Monday 

The Big Shopping Season is upon us! Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Those two days are huge sales events where retailers all over South Africa offer deep discounts on products. Are you ready for the rush of shopper this year?


Is Your Ecommerce site up and running?

Setting up an online store is an excellent idea right now if you haven't done so already. With Black Friday and Cyber Monday around the corner, there's never been a better time to launch your online store. Inventory, delivery options, customer service, and much more can be controlled more effectively if you've got an online shop.

Are All Items Ready for Sale?

Black Friday is one of the biggest shopping days of the year. There are always huge bargains on Black Friday and Cyber Monday. If you plan to participate in the sale, you should be ready now. You should make sure that all products are ready for sale, as well as ensure that your website has the resources to handle the surge in traffic that comes with the shopping season, especially during peak times. In addition to ensuring that promotions and discounts are active, you should ensure that your website has enough stock to fulfil demand. 

Do you need to include delivery options?

If you sell items online, you need to consider adding delivery/shipping options. Some customers prefer to collect their items at their local store, while others prefer to have them delivered to their workplace or home. Adding delivery alternatives allows them to do that. Customers may also select from different shipping modes such as air, ground, and express delivery. 

Can Customers Place Orders Online?

Make sure that your website offers a straightforward checkout process. This includes eliminating hidden fees and charges. It's also helpful to offer multiple payment methods, such as credit cards, PayPal, gift cards, etc.

Is Your Return Policy Updated? 

Your return policy should be clear and easy to find. You should also clearly state what happens when an item is returned. Online retailers offer free returns during that season, but if you don't, you should update your policy now. You never know when a customer might need to return something, so it'd be best to have a clear policy in place.

Do You Have a Clear Call-to-Action?

Your website should include a clear call to action button. A strong call to action button should instruct users on what to do next, prompting them to take immediate action. It is important for your customers to know where to click to buy your product.

Do You Have a Social Sharing Button?

The use of social media shares is an easy and effective way to promote your products and services online, as well as any special deals that you might have. Adding them is a good idea if you haven' t already. Your homepage should also include links to your social media pages.

Is Your Site Map Updated?  

Update your site map with the latest products and services available on your site. A well-designed Site Map helps visitors navigate your site easily and find what they are looking for, which means they’re less likely to leave without making a purchase.
In addition, grouping related pages together should also improve navigation.
