MarketOrders quoted on 2021 trends

What would ecommerce trends be in 2021?
MarketOrders was asked by Spree to give some thoughts about what is to come in 2021!

Here is what our COO, Sukhi Jutla, said: “2020 challenges this year meant we could not launch our sales plan as that included visiting jewelry retail shops to introduce our services and new online marketplace and make initial sales in person. In our industry, face to face sales are very important to build trust

The biggest challenge was to make sales when shops are closed! Most of them have excess stock and no need to buy more products, especially if they can’t sell it with their physical stores closed and most of our customers have no online presence.

The industry is so accustomed to in-store sales as the primary way to make sales and most of them have no other way of making sales or a plan B. Retailers have realized the importance of going online and having a digital experience for customers. It is not only a great way to sell your products, it is also a way to stay in touch with your customers, build loyalty and keep them informed about the new products coming up, special offers.

MarketOrders quoted by Brainyard on supply chain management

Before the coronavirus caused unexpected disruptions earlier last year, many companies either ignored or didn’t realize the vulnerabilities within their supply chains. Addressing these potential problems was an issue for another day. After all, things had run smoothly for this long, so why wouldn’t that continue?

MarketOrders was recently interviewed by Brainyard in an article titled: “How to Find the Right Suppliers… and Manage Your Increasingly Intricate Supply Chain”.

Our COO, Sukhi Jutla, said: “Sometimes businesses can overlook the fact that suppliers have their own IT infrastructure which may not work perfectly with your systems,”

“Ask the supplier for at least three other businesses they work with and independently get a reference from them,” Jutla said. “Find out, how do they deal with things when things go wrong — do they prioritize customer care, do they supply goods on time and to the right quality spec?”

“One of the biggest causes of delays in supply chains is not having access to the right information at the right time,” said Jutla, who is also a blockchain expert. “If all parties use the same ledger, then they can track exactly what is going on and see the activities of other participants in the ecosystem.”

MarketOrders quoted by Legal Zoom on finding the best startups ideas

Ideas for great new businesses are all around you, if you just know where to look.

MarketOrders was recently asked by Legal Zoom how we came up with MarketOrders. The article reads:

In fact, Sukhi Jutla, co-founder and COO of MarketOrders, leveraged the complaints she heard from her customers to launch her business. As a wholesaler of fine gold jewelry items, she “used to listen to her customers complain about how long it took to source products and the poor quality of images sent to them when choosing stock for their stores.” That feedback led Jutla to create an online marketplace “which digitized the customer journey and led to faster order completion and a place where I could stock high-quality photography of stock customers wanted,” she says.
