Save hours of valuable time with Transdirect’s Quick Book function
Let’s face it: being an ecommerce business owner involves a lot of tedious administration time.
In 2014, Canon commissioned a research project to better understand how people work and the challenges business owners face day-to-day. They interviewed 1,047 workers from small, medium and large organisations across Australia, and found that 63% of people spend 2 – 10 hours of repetitive admin work per week.
This racks up to around $3,203 to $16,415 a year in wasted time!
Refer & earn: How to get extra discounts as a referrer with Transdirect
We all love a good discount.
It’s science – literally.
In 2012, professor of neuroeconomics, Dr Paul J. Zak, set out to learn how discounts impact people’s happiness, health and stress levels. As it turns out, test subjects who received a $10 voucher experienced a 38% rise in oxytocin and were 11% happier than test subjects who didn’t.
Heart rates dropped 5% and sweat levels were 20 times lower than the discount-less test subjects. Discounts literally make people happier.

How do you like the idea of your marketing running itself?

It’s a win-win-win situation – for a small discount, you get cheap (or sometimes free) marketing and customers get social validation for recommending something great to a friend, plus the customer is rewarded for their good deeds.

A reliable business owner should know where their customer’s parcel is at all times or at least be able to check. Customers need to feel comfortable knowing where their order is, whether it’s heading to their address or back to the seller.
The customer/retailer relationship is all about trust. Consignment and parcel tracking is one of the most crucial parts of the ecommerce fling.
