We've put together a list of resources that may be useful to your business during the Covid-19 crisis.
Free Unlimited Access to eDesk Until September 2020
One of the trends in eCommerce customer service as a result of Covid-19 is a surge in the volume of inbound requests from consumers to companies - up 54% year on year according to xSellco.
As part of a series of business support offers to multichannel online retailers, xSellco has decided to give new users free unlimited access to eDesk until the end of September to help them cope with this rise in inbound queries.
eDesk typically costs $99 per support agent, so this offer will result in some real cost savings for busy online sellers over the coming months. There's more info about it here.
