Technology is constantly evolving and it is taking everyone and everything with it too, including marketplaces and retail stores. 

In the last decade, the majority of entrepreneurs and corporations all over the world have started taking the internet more seriously, maximizing it for marketing and generating revenue. Every brand you can think of can be found online with more flexible options for online shopping, bringing more convenience to their customers.

This is also another reason why the number of startups and solo entrepreneurs have risen over the last few years, especially in eCommerce. People like convenience and being able to do everything at the comfort of their own homes with just a few clicks. The reasons to shop online instead of outside have grown to a list that seems to be endless.

If you are on the internet now, chances are you have already made a couple of purchases here and there from your favorite stores and marketplaces online. It is quite easy, especially since marketplaces like Trending Dealers has made it easier with websites and mobile apps that are very easy to navigate and secure. 

But are you really getting the most out of your online shopping experience? 

Every person is a consumer and if there is one thing we all have in common, it is the desire to make sure that we are making the most out of the money that we are spending. 

Aside from giving you the most affordable prices in Trending Dealers, here is a list of some tips you can use to maximize your online shopping: 

  • Take advantage of FREE shipping

Believe it or not, not all stores offer free shipping for their products. While there are some who have this option by default, some stores still charge their customers for shipping costs regularly but they release promotions and coupons for free shipping. 

Many stores do not have this because they could be using an expensive third-party courier or they are located somewhere that’s very far from their audience.

So if you come across any of this, take advantage of the opportunity!  If you have to spend a little bit more to “earn” the free shipping offer its definitely worth it. Better to have a physical product then to loose money on postage. Especially if your close to the dollar amount needed and plan on buying from the same seller soon again.

Taking shipping costs out of the equation can significantly reduce the price that you are going to pay for your orders. 

  • Shop those discounts!

Many marketplaces, stores, and shopping platforms offer discounts,coupons and vouchers on a regular basis. 

It could be for your loyalty as their member, for a bulk purchase you made recently, or simply because they were feeling generous and they wanted their customers to be happy. 

Coupons, codes and % off discounts are often available by many of the sellers on Trending Dealers. When you see you favotite seller running sale, don’t miss the opportunity.

  • Follow your favorite sellers

Have you ever browsed a store and found their items interesting even without buying anything from them, then wondered if they would ever have something similar to what is listed that you would want to buy? 

Stop wondering and avoid having to check back every now and then to see if what you’re looking for is finally available! Follow your favorite sellers to see them first on your marketplace feed and get notifications when they release new products, restock your favorite items, or run a promo! 

Trending Dealers is designed similarly to social media platforms and allow you to follow fellow members and Dealers. Never miss out on great deals again! 

  • Save the listings you find interesting

You know those times when you are not really buying anything, but you are browsing? Take advantage of the “save for later” or “add to cart” function that most marketplaces have to keep the products you like accessible to you.

Sellers also put discounts and price drops on the products they list from time to time and it could be difficult to spot them if you would have to look for the items from the marketplace feed. Saving them would make it much easier to check and will give you the advantage especially for limited promotions!

  • Leave and read feedback every time you shop

A helpful habit that frequent online shoppers have is to check the store’s, seller’s, or item’s feedback before purchasing. Great feedback helps both sellers and buyers do business online.

It gives sellers more credibility and buyers a strong assurance that they will be getting their money’s worth from what they are planning to purchase. 

Your feedback can help another buyer make their decisions. Leave honest feedback everytime you shop to help build a safer community for sellers and buyers like yourself! 

These are some of the best ways you can make the most out of your online shopping experience, but do you know what would make it better? Shop at Trending Dealers!

Shopping Cart

Dealers – Please, only select “Variable” products if your product comes in different variations, for example: You have one T-shirt that comes in multiple different sizes (S, M, L).

When you select “Variable” product, you must choose ‘variable’ from ATTRIBUTES. (Which can be located further down the page) If the desired attribute is not there, please contact us so we can potentially add it.

FYI: “Simple” product will work best for most product types. Again, “Variable Product” is only needed for one single product that has different variables like sizes, colors, etc. We encourage you to add product attributes on both simple and variable products to improve search and filter results. On a “Simple” product attributes are optional but on a “Variable” product they are required.

The vast majority of images will upload easily and successfully.

If you are having trouble uploading an image it is probably due to one of the following reasons:

1.The file type is incorrect.
You can only upload file types .jpg, .jpeg, and .png

We recommend using JPEG when ever possible.
You can most likely change the file type if needed by right clicking on the image and selecting:
Quick Action > Convert Image
Format: “JPEG”
Image size: “Actual size” (Unless you need to change size, then choose accordingly)

2. The files size is too large
You can only upload files up to a maximum of 1920 pixels. Files above that size will be resized – and it may be reshaped in the process. Try to use square images as far as possible to avoid reshaping.
The resizing will only work on images less than 2mb in size. Above that, the resizing doesn’t work and the image upload will fail.

3. Uploading directly from an iPhone or Android

If you are having trouble uploading from your mobile device. Always make sure you are using the correct image file type. If you are we recommend:

First: Please check you are using the latest IOS or OS. If not update the software on your phone. Our system is constantly updating and works best from the latest operating system.

Second: Try taking a “screenshot” of image and uploading the screenshot instead of the original image.

If you are still having trouble on your phone you can re-try again on a laptop, desktop or tablet. No matter your device running the latest operating system will work work best. If still experiencing issues, please contact us dealersupport@trendingdealers.com

4. Shape of the images
The images should be square and 1000px by 1000px. If you upload other shapes or sizes the image may be resized but you risk the image being cropped and looking strange.

Correct shape – square
Incorrect shape – with possible cropping of the image
