To get things started, I'm Andy, the founder of Web Retailer. This is my full-time business.

Happy to talk about anything to do with selling through online marketplaces.

Hi everybody.

It's me, Ian, the Purple Monkey. I have been designing websites and eCommerce sites for longer than I would like to (or can) remember.

Experience with WidgetChimp, WebInterpret, Shopify, Linnworks, Wordpress, eBay, Amazon, PrestaShop, MeanRepricer, ReplyManager and Joomla to name but a few.

More than happy to give advice or try to answer any questions regarding websites or e-commerce.

  • Happy customers
  • e-mails that say I have won the lottery
  • Well cooked steaks
  • Pubs that serve real ale

  • Dislikes
  • Dishonest buyers
  • Spoof e-mails
  • Over cooked steaks
  • Pubs with plastic dinosaurs in the garden

  • Seriously though, if you have a question, want a chat, or would like a no strings attached appraisal of your website, and you think I am the only one on earth who can help you please PM me or post on this forum and I will do my very best to help. I don't do myths, I don't do jargon, I don't do corporate sales speak, just good old fashioned honest talk.

    Good Afternoon,

    I'm Hugh "Ready4Export" Kukard, I'm an Excited, Passionate South African who is fired up about Africa's exciting future, the potential on offer and its long over due economic growth.

    Who is Ready 4 Export, we officially a new company in the eyes of SARS (SA Tax regulator) and once registered we will also be an Exporter, Service provider of Export services to small and medium sized companies exporting or never sent a email out of the country.

    My passion is International Trade, I spent 15 years in freight forwarding, working for some large global players, I also have experience in Logistics and Supply Chain, working as the SCO for large Zimbabwean Company, Fast Food Chain industry that has a network of outlet in Africa 700+ stores, 7 brands,We supplied our branded consumables from South Africa to these regions but also cross traded with suppliers in other countries like Portugal, Malaysia to save time and money. All based in Africa and supplied goods through 9 distribution centers to Zimbabwe, Zambia, Malawi, Kenya, Senegal, Ghana, Nigeria, and believe it or not Zimbabwe was the biggest trading country at the time in comparison to the rest of the network.

    So just to confirm we all addicted to Exporting, helping our customers achieve efficient cost effect devilries through creative Supply Chains throughout Africa and the rest of the World. We all looking for counseling to help easy the stress of our addiction (yet to find any help so we will continue) O yes I would like to introduce my self "Hi My Name is Exports and I have a Hugh Problem"

    Most companies around the World not only South Africa and I'm sure its save to say, are looking for new opportunities to stay relevant. As the Globe becomes less restricted through import regulations, import duties and taxes, the more competitive industries become resulting in less share, Customers expectations changing, it isn't brain surgery to know that to remain focused on business growth in limited sized market has to be explore opportunities beyond its boarders.

    So this is where we are, needing to stay a head of the game (even before we officially start) and feel this is the next best step for future growth, the problem and I think it is a major one I don't have any knowledge or experience directly relating to E Commerce type of business especially running a one. Partly the reason I joined this group is learn from members and I'm willing to give freely any information I have that you may need in return.

    Great being part of this group, i appreciate you allowing me here.

    Hopefully we can chat soon.

    Many Thanks

    Hey everyone,

    So, I'm a power seller doing about 60,000 orders a month for my own brand of home appliance accessories, Crucial Brands. After 7 years of being a seller, I decided to build Skubana as there was no affordable, all-in-one operations system on the market. Skubana is an e-commmerce acceleration software that handles everything after the customer checks out on the marketplace (Amazon, eBay, Sears) or shopping cart (Magento, Shopify, BigCommerce) which are all 1-click integrations. All on the cloud, nothing to download.

    We help you fulfill any way you process orders (printing shipping labels, FBA, MCF, Dropship, 3PL), we have OrderBots that automate that process. We also bring in all your inventory so you can manage it, juggle it and never run out of stock. Once your min. stock level is hit, we have a process that automates a purchase order and awaits your approval to be sent to the vendor. It's really an end-to-end system to run your entire e-commerce business.

    I highly encourage you all to checkout Skubana as you're e-commerce business deserves better.

    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    It would be great to talk shop with you, get to know my story and my brands through the interview on WebRetailer below.
