Tips for ecommerce merchants

Be sure to post holiday shipping deadlines on your website to let your customers know their package will get there on time.  A message reading “Order by Dec. __ in order to receive your order by Dec. 25th” should be highly visible from most pages on your site, especially the homepage.  Another common practice is for merchants to give free or discounted expedited shipping as the deadlines pass for economy delivery classes.
