After, Inc.’s QuickCover Extension is Now Available on the Top Four eMarketplace App Stores – Shopify, Adobe Commerce, Woo Commerce, and BIG Commerce

NORWALK, Conn. -- After, Inc., a pioneer in the Warranty Services industry, just announced that its QuickCover® product protection technology is officially available on Shopify, Adobe Commerce, Woo Commerce, and BIG Commerce. QuickCover® is one of five post-sale customer experience platforms that After, Inc. calls its QuickSuite.

The five platforms in the QuickSuite include: QuickReg® (registration), QuickCover® (product protection), QuickClaim® (claims management), QuickInsight® (analytics and reporting), and QuickRenew® (add-on consumable subscriptions).

With QuickCover® now available on all four e-commerce marketplaces, it is poised to power over 2/3 of all e-commerce protection plan sales. According to Oberlo, current U.S. market share percentages for the four emarketplaces as of May 2022 are: Shopify (32%), Woo Commerce (23%), Adobe Commerce (9%), and Big Commerce (3%).

"After has been a best-in-class warranty services company for over 15 years, helping global manufacturers optimize their businesses after the point of sale," said Nate Baldwin, CEO of After, Inc. "QuickCover - and the whole QuickSuite - didn't happen overnight. We saw a shift in the market several years ago, with many of our manufacturing and retail clients moving significant percentages of their product sales online. They needed a solution to offer their own branded protection plans across all of their e-commerce channels.

"What's great about QuickCover is that OEMs and Third-Party Administrators can white label the technology to drive more online protection plan sales. We partner with them to launch their own branded plug-in on Shopify, Woo, BIG and/or Adobe Commerce.

115 Sponsors Step Up to Engage Communities in Shop Local Campaigns

MENLO PARK, Calif. -- In pandemic years 2020 and 2021, more than 100 of Yiftee's almost 400 communities who use its Community eGift Card platform ran dedicated gift card grant or bonus programs to benefit their small businesses, helping them stay afloat. Who were the "hometown heroes" that sponsored these programs during tough times, and continue to do so?

Yiftee surveyed its communities and found some expected and some surprising results when they asked, "What was the source of funding for your community gift card bonus and grant programs?"

1 -- City governments were the first to step up: 26.3%

2 -- Individuals in the community chipped in: 23.7%

3 -- Local banks and other employers contributed: 15.8%

4 -- ARPA and CARES federal programs were used: 13.2%

5 -- Other sources included tourist and hotel tax reserves, Chamber of Commerce/Downtown Association/Main Street budgets, and other county and state funding.

Over the two years, Sponsors contributed $2.7 million for bonus cards, incentivizing additional Community eGift card purchases by town residents of $4.1 million. Grant and employee reward programs added up to an additional $5.4 million. Gift cards and bonus cards can only be spent at local merchants in the Sponsors' communities. These purchases often replaced national brand gift card purchases as Sponsors redirected their budgets to "shop local."

Local financial institutions and employers support their communities

"Both Prudential Financial, Inc. and Audible are strong supporters of the community in which their employees live and work," said Tamara Remedios, Owner of Xplore Communications, who organized the Newark, NJ Community Card program. "When I approached Prudential with the idea of sponsoring a bonus program, they were all in, contributing $25k. They especially appreciated that their contributions incentivized additional purchases by Newark residents of 2.5x more. Plus, the bonus cards get residents into the 100+ shops and restaurants who are participating in the program before they expire - so it's a quick boost to our local economy when our businesses needed it the most. Audible also jumped on board to give $10k to support marketing and special programs for the Newark Gift Card. Both institutions are the benchmark of being true community partners."

Towns multiply their federal grant monies by engaging residents in shopping local

Last month, Yiftee hosted a webinar featuring two live community case studies where CARES and ARPA funds were used as sponsorships. Like Newark NJ, Concord CA hosted 3 bonus program campaigns at the holiday seasons of both 2020 and 2021, and a mid-year summer 2021 program as well. The $40,000 in federal grants were complemented by $80,000 in resident purchases for a total benefit of $120,000 going to 65 local businesses.

Cutler Bay, FL took a different approach with their CARES funding. They distributed $500 Community eGift cards to 300 residents in need, and the cards could only be spent at qualified small businesses in Cutler Bay. They saw 97.3% of the value redeemed within 3 months - a double win for the residents and businesses with the same funding.

The Yiftee survey documented some great advice for other communities considering similar programs, such as "Give them [Sponsors] as many perks as possible! Put their logo on all marketing materials, spotlight them on social media and encourage them to buy gift cards for their employees or raffle them off as prizes throughout the year" and "Have a sign at their [merchants'] cash registers to remind purchasers to use their e-gift card at that establishment."

The Bemidji, MN Chamber of Commerce promotes a locally owned bank, grocery store and telephone cooperative as Sponsors, celebrating their community spirit with logos on the website, and recognition in local press and marketing materials. This way, the community knows and can appreciate that these Sponsors are covering program costs for people who purchase their Community eGift Cards. Their card works at 49 different shops and restaurants in the area, and the program is free for the merchants to participate.

About Yiftee, Keep Local Dollars Local

Yiftee serves almost 400 communities and 13,000 local businesses with simple, secure, PoS-independent eGift Cards that keep local dollars local - more than $27M in pandemic years 2020 and 2021. The company works with Chambers of Commerce, Downtowns, Main Streets, Business Improvement Districts, city governments and other local organizations to create "Community Cards," branded for the community and redeemable at 10s to 100s of local businesses. Organizations and individuals purchase them online and send them via email, text or print to friends, family and co-workers to support their local businesses. There is no cost to the organizers or merchants for the program and it can be set up in just a few days. Yiftee also provides custom-branded cards for individual merchants, franchises, and chains.

With Low-Cost Barriers to Entry, Many are Exploring Growing Resale Industry as New Career, says Industry Experts at Aravenda Consignment Software

TYSONS, Va. -- Aravenda Global Resale Technology, a U.S.-based consignment software company, speaks to the exponential growth of new resellers as the Great Resignation continues - a mass exodus of employees that began in 2020 during economic uncertainty. "Rather than returning to the workplace, many Americans are starting their own businesses, and one of the lowest cost barriers to entry for starting a new business in resale," states Carolyn Thompson, CEO of Aravenda Consignment Software.

The resale industry was growing before the pandemic as consumers were becoming more environmentally conscientious. Since the pandemic started, tighter household budgets and supply chain issues led the resale industry to skyrocket, estimating to grow 11 times in the next five years to $77 billion.

Sneaker resale is one of the leading segments of the resale industry. In February 2021, research firm Piper Sandler estimated the resale shoe market was worth $10 billion - a $4 billion increase from 2019, and estimated to generate $30 billion by 2030 according to a study by Cowan Research Equity. Unlike other items, sneakers are being sold 200% or more above the retail cost due to demand of certain styles and sizes.

Furniture resale is another lucrative segment of the resale industry. People are always moving, downsizing, or redesigning, which offers resellers an opportunity to snag up high quality furniture for low cost and flip for a profit.

Becoming a reseller has a low barrier to entry. Many resellers start with items they have sitting around their home, attic or garage: clothing, 80s and 90s memorabilia, furniture, sports cards and more. Many watch social media groups or websites where people are giving away items for free or at low cost. Others hunt thrift shops or clearance aisles at retailers to find highly valuable items they know will resale for a nice profit.

Although many exist, you don't need to have a brick-and-mortar store to become a reseller. Selling online and shipping items or arranging a pick up of sold items has become quite popular. In fact, to be successful reseller, you will need to have sell online as ecommerce. According to Insider Intelligence forecast, US ecommerce sales will grow 16.1%, reaching $1.06 trillion this year.

About Aravenda Consignment Software:

No one knows resale like Aravenda. As a Shopify Partner, Aravenda leads the market in global resale technology innovation no matter what you are reselling. With the most advanced features and unlimited service, Aravenda was named a 2021 NVTC Tech 100 honoree for extraordinary achievements and excellence in the technology industry. Aravenda shares your passion and wants resellers to sell efficiently and profitably. Aravenda serves clients in over 10 countries on four continents and can have a new store up and running in a matter of days.

"The improved checkout process with CapstonePay saves carriers valuable time per unload, protects both drivers and shippers against lost receipts, and should help reduce the potential for fraudulent activity."
