Online shopping is shaping the future into a much advanced world. Businesses in UAE have already realized this potential and almost all the stores in the malls have online sellers along with physical stores. The ones who haven't already moved are working on it. The ecommerce industry is thriving specifically in UAE because they are adopting different ways to make online shopping experience better for everyone. With great service comes great price but online promotions have become a norm in UAE making the experience much less expensive for everyone who wishes to venture into the world of online shopping.
Here are a few ways being adopted by the ecommerce businesses to immediately start getting sales.
Coupon codes are easy to use codes at the time of purchase that gives a certain percentage of discount on the product. These coupon codes are available on many major sites like noon coupon code, Amazon UAE coupon code, Mamas and more in the same line.
Referrals are complimentary discounts that you get upon referring the site to a friend. It is most possibly a fun to have discount because all you do is refer it to someone and you get something in return. The more you refer, the more you get. Namshi, Centerpoint & Baby Shop have been using it for a long time now and it has succeeded in getting a spike in sales.
-Free shipping offers on products.
Sometimes stores will offer free shipping on times that exceed a certain value. Like Namshi offers free shipping for order value above 100 AED while some offers the same for 200 AED and above. This allows the customer to make a bigger order to avail the free shipping.
Mumzworld, Sprii, Namshi, Sporter and many more are adopting the reward/loyalty point system and this is personally my favorite because this allows the customer to attach to a brand. At every purchase, you receive some points. These points can be redeemed in different manner. It feels like you are rewarded for being a loyal customer and makes you want to stay with the brand.
When there are typically less than 5 products left on different items, the store can easily put upto 60% discount and call it clearance sales. Running a social media campaign for it and letting the customers know creates a hype and you succeed in selling even those items that would have stayed in stock for a longer time.
Seasonal sales are the best way to lure the customers specially on the onset of summers and winters. Ideally you can offer sales like “back to school” when new school session begins or “New Year Sales” at the start of each year. These kinds of sales provide an immediate attraction to people as they want to grab the latest items in the stock.
These are some sure shot ways an online store can lure the customers and give you the much needed sales.
