(This is a guest post from our friends over at Payability, a finance company that helps marketplace sellers take control of their cash flow issues and finally grow their businesses.)
For many small business owners — and especially eCommerce sellers — access to capital is a major growth hurdle. To effectively grow your eCommerce business, you need to invest, be it in a marketing campaign, new employees, or bulk inventory, for example. While it might work for some eCommerce businesses, going to a bank for financing isn’t always the best option (after all, the process is cumbersome, lengthy, and often a wasted effort due to low approval rates for online businesses).
But you likely already knew this. What you might not know is that there are financing options designed to work with your business, so you can get the cash you need — when you need it.

Online flash sales are a popular strategy to drive revenue. Successful sales can increase a merchant’s sales from 50/day to over 10,000 in a single 24-hour period. This is great for your revenue, but can undoubtedly put major stress on your operations during and after the sale.
When not handled properly, flash sales can quickly turn into disasters for merchants. Your website can crash or stall. Orders can take forever to process. Inventory can oversell. Once disaster hits, it’s hard to see why you wanted to run a flash sale in the first place. When poorly executed, sales can lead to upset customers, lost sales, and erode your brand image.

Without automation, passing data between your systems becomes a laborious and time-consuming process that ultimately puts customer service levels at risk.
When your company starts to feel these pressures internally, it’s time to consider integrating Shopify and Shopify Plus to Microsoft Dynamics NAV, which is now Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central to transform your operations into the efficient and smoothing running business you know you can be.
