Ecommerce Widgets And More – Scratchpad Video

Author: Gab Goldenberg

I get into:

  • widget ecommerce, where people can buy directly off an affiliate’s site through secure, embedded widgets,
  • price match guarantees on shipping to avoid folks abandoning their cart at checkout to go see if other retailers ship for less,
  • alternative payment methods such as cell phone minutes and how cell phones may become the credit cards of the future.

The audio’s not perfect because I had to re-record it due to a little lag between the video and audio in the original, where my lips moved a split second before the audio was heard. (I’m faster than the speed of sound! ;))

Would love to hear your reactions!

  3. re: shipping price guarantee. surely you will be prompting the people who would not think to find cheaper shipping from competitiors to actually leave your site, find a better deal possibly purchase somewhere else (as they would generally need to fill a cart, to find out exact shipping) or just abandon the purchase altogether. i read somewhere (wish i could find the link) that coupon boxes have the same effect, it will prompt someone to leave and search for a coupon or abandon the buy as they are frustrated that they know there is a way of getting something for less but were unable to do so.
