We find that our most successful suppliers utilise all of Ordermentum’s features so that they can sail through to the New Year with less admin and stress.

In this blog, we’ll take you through exactly what you should be doing to get prepped so you can keep your customers happy and save a tonne of time.

1. Avoid disappointed customers with our new Stock Tracking feature

Scrambling for stock and adjusting orders when you’ve run out of stock is the last thing you want to do during the frantic Christmas rush.

The new Stock Tracking feature stops your customers from overordering your limited stock products. It’s perfect for specials on stock you want to get rid of, and really is the easiest way to reduce the disappointment created by overselling.

Navigate to Stock Tracking:

Go to Settings > Features > Turn on Stock Tracking.

You can then go to each limited stock product you like, enable Stock tracking, and set the amount that you have.

2. Keep your customers updated with your delivery schedule

If you’re going to be closed or not delivering during the public holidays, it’s a great idea to update your Ordermentum account so that your customers are able to plan ahead.

Read our help guide to learn how to use the scheduling feature to make sure you are up to date for all the upcoming public holidays.

3. Write a note to keep your customers in the loop

Writing a note is the easiest way to inform your customers about product specials, changes to delivery times, and when you’re open (or not). All you need to do is leave a note on the front page of your Digital Catalogue for new and existing customers, and they’ll immediately get any important info before they go to order.

Where to write a note:

Go to Settings > click Branding > Leave a note for your existing customers
