When you made the momentous decision to become a website designer, you probably never expected it was going to be a diplomatic assignment. Yet that's exactly how things have turned out for most of us who develop websites for public clients. Your clients want things one way, Google wants them another, and you get stuck in the middle trying to find a compromise that will work.

When push comes to shove, most tender-hearted designers will let their clients have their way, but is that the best decision? It depends whether you have an on-going relationship with the client and whether you actually care about their success or not.

Ecommerce Shipping – A Step by Step Guide for 2019

Global ecommerce sales are currently topping $3.5 trillion and cumulative data anticipates a 276% increase in global retail over the most recently tracked period. If you’re just starting out your ecommerce business, the first thing to learn is that global sales require global presence. This, of course, does not entail setting up multiple brick-and-mortar stores or international warehousing, but it does require a strategic and well-thought-out approach to shipping.

Why should you care about ecommerce shipping? As per BigCommerce’s 2017 survey, shipping price and speed are two of the top three most influential factors driving customer purchases.

So, where should you begin?
