Best Extensions to Automate WooCommerce
Automate your eCommerce: Extensions that help from initial customer interaction to accounting!
If you’re an eCommerce business owner, we know you’re busy. And not just regular-person busy, either. You’re probably running all your inventory, marketing, employee management, product development, shop maintenance, customer conversations, and countless other tasks. You’re pulling off quite the juggling act! Well done! What if we told you, though, that there’s a way you could automate both the CRM side of your business AND your accounting data-entry process with only two extensions?
What is ReadyCloud?
ReadyCloud is a CRM, marketing, shipping and returns Suite made for eCommerce. It has a special focus on order shipping & tracking functionality that business owners can use in conjunction with their WooCommerce store (and many other platforms, including Amazon) to automate sales, tasks, shipping, email marketing, and more. When it comes to your customer’s guided experiences – through your sales funnel, to conversions, and all the way out to purchase follow-ups and returns – ReadyCloud processes complex functions and actions that a basic WooCommerce store wouldn’t be capable of. The software is modular, so it’s scalable to your individual needs as a business. One of its most user-friendly features is its sleek, centralized interface. Users can view data about and adjust sales, returns, shipping, and growth marketing settings from one main menu, which pulls data directly from your existing WooCommerce store and other channels, like Amazon!
How ReadyCloud helps WooCommerce store owners:
ReadyReturns: A feature that aims to turn online returns into new purchases, and it works 44% of the time! This feature creates a great customer returns experience, which increases trust. It can help you automate your returns policy and can be set up in an area of your store with a proven high customer retention rate. You can even enable functionality that discourages serial returners!
Action Alerts: This is a brand new feature in ReadyCloud that is invaluable for growth marketing. It analyzes your customer’s shopping behavior and then sends individually targeted emails or texts to the customers in your database, containing products they might like. This system can also automate follow-up correspondence, cross-sells, and return process notifications, so your customers are consistently engaged without you having to do a thing!
ReadyShipper X: The ultimate integrated multicarrier shipping software, this ReadyCloud feature makes keeping track of your orders and post-purchase customer tracking experience feel easy. Because it immediately imports orders and updates shipments, you’ll always be on top of delivery. Once a label is created in ReadyShipper, it’ll automatically update the WooCommerce order as well. You’ll even save money with the included and exclusive special pricing on USPS Priority Mail!
How MyWorks Automates Accounting
MyWorks Sync is an integration connecting WooCommerce and QuickBooks accounting software. It automatically syncs all your store customers, sales, payment, inventory information, and more into your QuickBooks, in intervals as short as every five minutes! Rather than manually entering all your business’ bookkeeping info, MyWorks automatically fills out all the necessary information for you – it automates the process, saves time, and eliminates human error. MyWorks also keeps WooCommerce inventory in sync to keep all your products accounted for in real-time. MyWorks is widely known for its excellent US-based customer support team, who are available 24/7 to assist their users.
How do ReadyCloud and MyWorks work together with WooCommerce?
Both MyWorks and the ReadyCloud are powerful tools in their own right, but they become even more of an asset when used together. ReadyCloud automates customer and order management, and MyWorks takes sales data from WooCommerce and syncs that accounting information into QuickBooks.
ReadyCloud generates a tracking number for each order. This tracking number will immediately sync into WooCommerce, and MyWorks can automatically sync this tracking number into QuickBooks, so all of your accounting contains accurate tracking and order data that you didn’t even have to fill in!
Another great way the software intersects is in the returns and refunds process. ReadyCloud allows for a streamlined full and partial refund process, which syncs with your WooCommerce store. MyWorks can easily sync full or partial refunds from WooCommerce into QuickBooks. This means you will always have an accurate, real-time reflection of your finances in your accounting program, even if there have been complicated returns and refunds.
Your customer’s experience with your business begins the moment your customer lands on your website, but goes far beyond the point of purchase – it extends to shipping processes, speed, and information up until the returns process.
From the initial order process to streamlined shipping processes and notifications to easy returns and automated follow-ups, ReadyCloud has the order-management side of your store handled. As a business owner, you need to have your accounting and inventory management up-to-date and accurate for your management purposes, but especially for tax and compliance reasons. MyWorks has got you covered there. By combining the functionality of ReadyCloud, WooCommerce, and MyWorks, you’re streamlining your process from initial customer contact to backend account reconciliation, so you have more time for what matters!
