Online purchasing has become the norm in many countries around the world. For many online marketing companies, product packaging may not seem like it could be a good idea but product packaging and product deliverance is crucial for your online business to grow.
For those who are aware of the importance of product packaging, they understand how certain annoying elements of product packaging can be for their business. If you are in the e-commerce industry, then you will wholly agree with some of the examples we will list below.
For starter e-commerce shops you should consider these examples so that you won’t get too annoyed with the whole product packaging aspects of your business.
The 6 Most Annoying Problems That Product Packaging Companies Have To Deal With
# 1 – Shipping
Perhaps one of the significant annoyance comes down to the shipping. It can be quite expensive shipping items out to your customers. And although you will be able to get them to pay for the shipping with e-commerce shops like Amazon or eBay that quite often offer FREE shipping.
That can be a huge annoyance for your business as if you aren’t as influential as these giants offering free shipping can be non-existent for your business.
(At least in the beginning)
# 2 – Time
It can be very time-consuming packaging products in a fashionable and alluring way. And with anyone who is into business knows that time is money. The time you are spending on packaging could be spent elsewhere and on more important aspects of the business.
# 3 – Location
The great thing about e-commerce businesses is that you can reach people all over the world. And as great an opportunity that is it is also problematic as you may have customers who are from other countries. Shipping to those countries may take a long time, and in specific instances, you may not be able to ship to those countries.
#4 – Membership
Offering membership to your customers is a great way to build a relationship, but it is also can bite you in the back later on. If you provide membership to many people and along with that membership there are discounts you MUST calculate those discounts into your finances. There have been many online businesses that have failed due to discounts and free shipping that was not taken into account.
# 5 – Same Day Shipping
This is something, as we have mentioned in the first entry, can be a huge problem for your business. Amazon offers same day shipping, and of small online business this is not something they can do, and as a result, this can drive sales down.
# 6 – Tracking App
People are very impatient today, and they want instant gratification. Although that is very little your business can do to stop that – tracking products can be quite the annoyance if you don’t have an app or service to keep them up to date.
