Bulk Upload of Custom Products

T-Shirts, coffee cups, mugs, games, toys, candles, jewelry, etc. are all “custom products” that you can sell on your IndieCommerce site. Many of our merchants have asked us to create an easier way to upload and maintain large numbers of custom products on their website. The solution is our new custom product bulk upload system.

‚ÄčGoogle Analytics Webinars Are Online

There are now two great webinars on Google Analytics (GA) online. In January 2017, Max Thomas gave us an encore presentation of his GA session (online here) at Winter Institute. In April 2016, Matt Supko gave a great webinar on Google Analytics for beginners. There is some overlap with Max’s presentation, but if you watch both of these, you should have a good introduction to GA. Grab a cup of coffee or cocoa and a notepad and get enlightened. 

Use Mobile-Friendly Themes Only

Is your website theme mobile-friendly? Are you considering a new theme for your website? Check out (note that we are calling out themes that are not mobile-friendly). Keep in mind that 42.6% of visitors to IndieCommerce sites are coming from mobile devices. That’s a huge number of people who want a mobile-friendly experience on your website. 

Thanks for reading. Feel free to email us with any thoughts, questions, or suggestions.
