How it works:
So, that’s what our new Square integration does. But how does it work? Let’s get into the nitty gritty details:
1. Products from your Square store can now be added to any Live Show broadcast. All you need to do is search and add products from within Ship.com. Easy.
2. During the show and after making a sale, your Square inventory is updated. Completed orders are sent to Square and then appear in your account. From here, you can seamlessly send invoices and collect payment.
3. Once payment is collected, orders appear in your Ship.com account. Now, they’re ready for shipment.
Benefits of the Square integration
Essentially, the Ship.com integration for Square does the hard work for you. It takes the busy work out of setting up Live Shows, invoicing, and shipping when selling live on Facebook. Meaning more streamlined Live Selling and more opportunity for you to smash those sales targets!
No longer will you have to do time-consuming tasks like manually entering inventory. Or typing in order information by yourself. You can now spend that spare time selling your awesome beauty products. Or engaging your customers with your products through online make-up tutorials.
We know a lot of our a-maz-ing SeneGence sellers already use us for shipping. Now, even shipping is easier during the Live Selling process. With the new Square integration, payment notification from Square goes right back to Ship.com. This way, sellers can instantly and easily print a shipping label.
Why Live Selling?
Some of you SeneGence sales queens are already aboard the Live Selling train. However, some of you may not have delved into the next best thing in eCommerce. Yet …
So, we thought we’d serve you up a fresh reminder of why Live Selling is so great. And why, if you haven’t yet, it’s something you must get on.
Live Selling – the future of eCommerce
We already know Live Selling has been a huge hit In China. But Livestream Selling in the US generated almost $6 billion in sales in 2020. And according to research from Coresight, the US Live Selling market is going to quadruple by 2023 to $25 billion by 2023.
To add to that, conversion rates for live selling are around 30%. That’s up to 10x higher than traditional eCommerce. And the average buyer makes a larger purchase. Plus, when buyers purchase through a Live Show, stores experience 40% lower returns.
And the beauty of Live Selling? Anyone can do it. Yes, those higher conversions and lower return rates are for you my SeneGence friends. Live Selling levels the playing field. It’s a channel of eCommerce where anyone can thrive. Especially small retailers!
The advantage of using Facebook for Live Selling
Our ShipLive platform is designed specifically for hosting Live Shows and selling on Facebook. Across multiple groups and pages at the same time. But, why Facebook …
Facebook is the most used social media platform in the US. Out of the 270 million social media users in the US, more than 200 million use Facebook. Also, Facebook prioritizes video content, as it has been proven to have much higher engagement. Therefore, it’s way more likely to appear further up someone’s timeline. And people engage 6x more with live video than they do with pre-recorded video. In other words …
Facebook is the perfect environment for selling your products on Live Shows.
Isn’t Facebook Live Selling going away?
If you Google “Facebook Live Selling” at the moment, you’ll see some articles that may worry you. Many of these will say that Facebook Live Shopping is “going away’. Or, that it’s “ending”. So… to the big question everyone’s asking
“Can I still sell live on Facebook?”
Well, YES. You CAN still host Live Shows and sell your products on Facebook. Let us clarify …
On October 1, Facebook is shutting down its own Live Shopping platform support. However, you can still sell live on Facebook using the ShipLive platform. And you’ll still be able to create product playlists and host your Live Shows with ease. So, don’t stress my little pretties.
