Working for an ecommerce company can be a true test of willpower when you enjoy shopping. Though I try not to purchase too many merchant products, once in a while I cannot hold back. I would like to share a wonderful experience I had purchasing a gift from Cashie Commerce jewelry merchant Kiwi Avenue. It surprised me, and I hope sharing it may help inspire ideas you can implement that will make your customers feel the same way.
To begin the process I received a personal email thanking me for my order. This is always a nice touch, but not something that will necessarily make a small business stand out. The memorable portion came after I opened the package. Here are the items I received from Kiwi Avenue when I only anticipated a piece of jewelry:
We’re excited to announce new prices for a new year that are more profitable for you. We are dropping transaction fees when you pay annually! If you choose to pay monthly, the transaction fee has now been reduced to 1%, regardless of your plan.

It’s October and the holiday retail season is warming up. With 39 days to go until Black Friday (November 29th), you still have time to get your store in shape in time to increase sales over the holidays.
Big product news today from the Cashie Commerce team.
We hope most of our customers have taken note of our Merchant Specialist team, which we put together this summer. The team has noticed several trends in reviewing stores these past months and following we’ve highlighted a few of the most common missing store components. These are all quick fixes and we encourage you to read on and take action if you haven’t enabled these features already!
Merchant specialists help our merchants get the most out of their online stores. They review each store individually to create a custom store report, and then walk you through the report over the phone. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to request a store report if you haven’t received one already.
This product update has been a top request from many customers and we hope you find it of particular use as we head into the holiday season. You can now easily list products in multiple categories. Just click the “Add new category…” link below the existing category drop-down to add further categories to your products. When adding a new product, you can do the same.
Creating an online store can be a daunting task. There are many differing opinions on where and how to start, but a vast majority would agree that WordPress is a great place to begin. WordPress is an open source content management system that enables you to blog and create sites, often for free or very low rates. Companies like Cashie Commerce build plugins, widgets and themes so that users can create sites without vast technical knowledge.
In this post, we’ll walk you through detailed instructions to show you how using the combination of WordPress and Cashie Commerce is one of the quickest and easiest ways to get your store online.
