9th Anniversary: 9 Bonanza Features to Know About

Celebrate good times, come on!

Here we are. Halfway through Anniversary Week. Hopefully you've been creating pre-made marketing campaigns, beautifying your booth, and taking advantage of our killer membership sale. 

We busy bees at Bonanza HQ have been hard at work over the past few months, collecting ideas and feedback and converting them into honey for our sweet sellers. Sellers and shoppers alike are abuzz with excitement about these new changes. These features are so great, you'll hardly bee-lieve them.

9 Bonanza features to know about

1. Shopify Importer

The Shopify importer was a highly requested feature from sellers. It takes all of your active listings from Shopify and copies them into your Bonanza booth with as much detail as it can gather. Importing items from Shopify is free and usually is completed within a few hours, though sometimes can take as long as 24-48 hours, depending on how many items are being imported and how many imports are in the queue.

The Shopify importer will copy standard listings that have a quantity of greater than 0. If you import your items multiple times, subsequent item imports will only import items that were added to your Shopify store since the last Shopify import. You can indicate on the importer if you'd like to override existing items imported from Shopify to Bonanza. To start importing from Shopify, follow these instructions.

2. Editing item images in the Batch Editor 

In order to make managing your item listings easier, we've added image editing capabilities to the Batch Editor. Our goal with this was to help sellers make changes to their item photos quickly and easily. To use this feature, select "Batch Edit Items" from the Selling dropdown menu in the upper lefthand corner of any page. From there, select the tab that says "Image Editing."

You can filter your listings based on a variety of characteristics. This is especially handy if you'd like to edit your items that may have been disapproved by Google Shopping.

3. Membership checklist

Bonanza memberships come with a bunch of great tools and features to make selling on Bonanza a breeze. But you might not be aware of the exact features you have access to, or how to use them to your benefit. That's where your membership checklist comes in. The checklist spotlights different actions you can take to make the most out of your membership, and checks them off upon completion.  

Is there anything more satisfying than checking items off a list?

If you visit the memberships page and click the "View Benefits" button for your membership level, you can see the details of your membership plan, as well as the membership checklist. 

4. Yearly sales report

Some of you might recall our recent blog post about this feature, but it's one that we want to reiterate. The yearly sales report shows your total Bonanza sales for a given calendar year. You can view current year-to-date sales for 2017, or complete sales from a previous calendar year.

This report makes managing revenue and spending on Bonanza much easier. The report includes an at-a-glance look at sales, revenue, final value fees, and taxes, as well as a list of additional fees for other Bonanza services that you might be paying for. The report also displays each month for the year individually, allowing you to dig deep into your transactions for any given month.

You can access your yearly sales report by clicking "Yearly Sales" under the "Reports" tab of your Selling Dashboard.

5. Updates to the Coupons page

We want to make it easy for buyers to find great deals on Bonanza that drive sales to your booth. That's why we recently updated the Recent Coupons page.

Now, customers can easily browse the newest coupons on the site, and traffic is directed straight to your booth from this page. To create a coupon, visit the "Discounts & Coupons" tab of your Booth Settings. There, you can create and specify discounts to your heart's content.

6. Feedback coupons

Earning positive feedback will help build your reputation as a top seller. One way to encourage positive feedback is by sending a coupon as a "thank you" to buyers who leave you positive feedback on purchases from your booth. This small token of appreciation is just one way to build repeat business.

To create a coupon, visit the "Discounts & Coupons" tab of your Booth Settings and select the option to "Send this coupon as a gift to buyers who leave feedback."

7. After sale message

Using the "After Sale Message" feature on Bonanza is a great way to create goodwill between you and your customers. To set up an after sale message, visit the "Payments & Purchases" tab of your booth settings. Here's an example of an after sale message:

Thank you for your purchase from my booth! Your order is being processed. You should see a tracking number on your order within (1) business days, and delivery in (7-12) business days. After your order has arrived to your satisfaction, we would be delighted to receive a positive feedback from you. Please contact me with any questions or concerns. Thank you for your business! 

8. Pre-made Customer marketing campaigns

Creating a Customer marketing campaign has never been easier, now that we've unveiled our pre-made campaign templates. You can read all about this new feature here. In honor of Bonanza's anniversary, if you create a pre-made campaign between June 19th and June 25th, Bonanza will cover the cost of your final value fees for up to five sales made from using a pre-made campaign. Here are the promotion details:

  • The sales must be the result of a campaign created from our pre-made campaigns.
  • The maximum campaign length is two weeks.
  • The cost of the waived final value fees cannot exceed $50 total.

To try out our pre-made campaigns, click "Marketing Campaigns" in the Customers tab of your Selling Dashboard.

9. The Bonanza Instagram
