What’s new in Sellfer version 1.0.4

Latest updates give your shop a cleaner and fresher look and also a boost in search engine rankings. Here’s what’s new.

Notification Feature

With the new update shop owners will be able to choose what notifications to receive. From shop admin, they can activate/deactivate notifications for new orders, new returns to the shop, notifications about importing products, and news about the shop. All notifications will be shown at the header of the shop admin. Each notification can be clicked through to read an associated link. Notifications for new orders and returns will notify the owner respectively for newly made orders and returns. Notifications for importing products will be sent when the importing process has been completed. Last but not least news notifications will be sent from Sellfer to you – shop owners. They will notify you of new updates and what’s coming soon.

Image Alt text and title

When you start a business the last thing you think of is your ranking in image search engines. It’s quite underrated and that’s the first mistake of young entrepreneurs. Adding alt attributes to your images can give you a good ranking in the image search result. And a good ranking in Google image search can drive a significant amount of traffic to your webshop. With the latest updates, we’ve added the option to edit the image alt text and title of your products, brands, and blog posts. Check it out and improve your shop’s ranking in search engine results.

SEO Tool

Getting more traffic to your shop and higher ranking in search results is like the holy grail for every shop owner. Knowing it’s not an easy job to check almost every part of your shop for missed meta title or description we’ve created an SEO tool to help you with it. How does it work? The SEO tool scans every part of your shop that can contain meta title and meta description. Then gives you back the results with a missing one. If you have a meta title or description with a shorter or longer length than the recommended one by google you’ll see it in the scan results too. The tool also scans your images for missing alt text and title.

Changes on the Product page

We keep making changes to the vision of the products page. After live editing modules and navigation, we decided to try real-time edit for the product page too. With the new version of Sellfer, you’ll be able to make some changes directly on the product’s page and see the changes in real-time. From the sidebar, you’ll be able to enable or disable social sharing buttons, dimensions of the products, or their SKU/EAN number. There is also a selector that gives you the option to choose whether to show the brand of the product and how to show it – either with an image or just as text. From here you can also change how to show variants of the product and give your shop even a cleaner vision.

New updates are coming live with the new version 1.0.3

Version 1.0.3 brings a fresh look to your webshop.  New features help you manage your shop with ease and make it looks even more stylish.

Dark mode activated

Joining the dark side is not always bad. With the new update, our customers can enable the dark theme of their shops. It changes the entire look of the webshop and delivers a great viewing experience. We’ve chosen a color scheme to suit the dark theme but you can always change the colors to match their brand.

Enable products for Webshop or SELLFER POS APP only

The new update delivers changes for the products, too. With the new options that you can find on the product page at the admin, you can select whether to enable a certain product only for the webshop or for the POS devices. If one of these options is selected the product will be enabled only for it. If none of them is selected the product will be visible both for the webshop and for the POS devices you have.

Added Category Discount

The new version brings new discounts that can be applied with a single click to thousands of products. Add a percent discount to an existing category and all products that belong to it will be applied with the discount. Removing the discount is just as easy as adding it. 

Check the new updates and see for yourself that managing a business has never been easier.

This way they’ll receive a mail that will give them a link to download the information, this includes invoices, user addresses, orders. Guests of the shop can request to download their information too but as they don’t have an account they can do this through the Privacy policy of the shop.

Cookie policy feature updated

Meet our new, GDPR compliant cookie policy. Due to The EU law on personal data, the General Data Protection Regulation, website/shop visitors have the right to receive specific, up-to-date information on what data is registered about them, for what purpose, and where it is sent. This affects cookie policy, too. Since 25 May 2018, websites cannot force their visitors to accept all cookies that are active on the websites. Now users have the right to know what user data cookies track, for what purpose, and even have the right to decline them all. Strictly following the regulation we from Sellfer updated our shops’ cookie policy.

 

We’ve gathered the cookies into four groups – Necessary, Functional, Analytics, and Marketing. Users can read more for each group and what data they track before deciding which cookie to accept. It’s important to know that the group with Necessary cookies is always active and those cookies cannot be switched off. These cookies are essential for the website to function. Users may disable them by changing their browser settings, but this may affect how the website functions. All of the other three groups can be declined if that’s what the user wants. Once accepted the cookies will be stored on the user’s device for 60 days if they don’t delete them manually.

Shop owners have app interface in their admins that allows them to edit the text in the consent box if they want to, of course. Following the regulation rules, we’ve added an option for easy access to the cookies if users subsequently changed their status regarding the cookies. Once accepted or declined, users’ consent can be changed anytime following the link in the footer of the shop, for instance.

How to create amazing website with free images and videos?

Hi Sellfers! So you’ve created your store and now what? You’ve probably heard that half the impression of an online store is made from the photos. Therefore, you need breathtaking photos but on the other hand, you don’t want to exceed your budget. Most people would bet on pictures from the internet. Well, if that’s your case you need to read this article right away.

So let’s see what are dos and don’ts when using images from the internet

Dos :

  • It is good to use images from specialized sites. They offer a full variety of photos, graphics, videos and etc. which you can use for different kinds of apps.
  • You better use images that show the essence of your business. Make sure that pictures and videos contribute to the creation of the site’s individuality and not just to be there because it looks better.
  • Anyone who understands a bit of design will tell you that it’s preferred to have photos with the correct size, resolution, and orientation. Also, always choose photos with high quality.
  • You need to be careful with what license the image is and how it can be used.

Don’ts :

  • We don’t recommend you to download pictures directly from Google. First, they may not be appropriate for your site at all, such as quality, size, and so on. And secondly, they may have copyrights. You must be aware that using unauthorized images can cause serious consequences.
  • Do not choose too common photos. Still, you want to make your site noticeable and unique.
  • Don’t try to fit an image where it doesn’t belong. For example, a portrait-oriented picture in a landscape-oriented location or vice versa.
  • Last but not least, don’t forget to rename images. This way Google will understand what’s in the picture.

After reading this, you must be a little worried. Don’t be. Sellfer to the rescue. We’ve gathered some pretty interesting and useful sites from where you can download free pictures and videos and forget all your cares.

  • Pixels.com
  • Freeimages.com
  • Pixabay.com
  • Freepic.com
  • Pngtree.com

Other excellent resources for free videos are:

  • Videos.pixels.com
  • Videvo.net

Now you are ready to create an amazing online store, without declaring bankruptcy.
