Googys: How Transdirect helped this protein business pack a bigger punch
If there’s one thing customers love from an online store, it’s free shipping. Our friends over at Googys know this well.
According to new data on customer loyalty, 61% of customers are motivated to test out a new brand or product if a business offers free shipping. If there’s no free shipping, the same amount of customers are inclined to abandon cart! That’ll scramble your business growth potential!
Yep, there’s serious potential in offering free shipping.
How to get the most out of our convenient contact page
At Transdirect, our customer service team is fast-acting and dedicated to solving customer queries. We want running a business and shipping to customers to be as smooth as the bonnet of a Porsche.
However, sometimes calling the customer service line isn’t the fastest and most efficient solution. Your time is better spent elsewhere – we know that – which is why we’ve developed a super-interactive contact page where you can find answers fast.
Our contact page is packed with useful information and touch-points to solve a range of FAQs.

Tax time can be a stressful time for ecommerce business owners. Orders come in from all over the world, sometimes hundreds of times per day. Keeping track of all the invoices and statements from couriers, customers and suppliers can be overwhelming.
Finding that one unpaid statement from three months ago?
Forget it. Put it in the too-hard basket. To heck with the accountants.
At Transdirect, we want to help keep track of records, from customer orders to invoices and statements.
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.
