With that said, it is also very important to have visibility into your orders and inventory. TradeGecko can help you keep track of your products as you sell and restock across multiple locations and channels, as well as manage all your orders in one place, arrange fulfillments and get paid 3x faster.

We recently hosted a webinar with Rewind - a company that securely backs up your online data, helping you recover deleted items and undo changes easily. In this webinar we identified common data disasters in eCommerce stores, tips on how to backup your eCommerce stores and how to effectively manage your orders and inventory by using TradeGecko.


Mike Potter, who is the CEO at Rewind, started his presentation by sharing his personal story:

The first time I experienced a data disaster was during a presentation in front of hundreds of people… and my boss

Since that experience, Mike started backing up everything on his computer on a regular basis. Located in Ottawa, Canada (where Shopify was founded) Mike and his partner James decided to build a software that could backup eCommerce stores, specifically Shopify and BigCommerce stores.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have a magic undo button for any mistake in your Shopify store?

This is how Rewind was born, allowing business owners to easily backup their eCommerce stores. You simply install Rewind onto your Shopify store and then you never need to worry about losing any data again. You have the option of “rewinding” your products one by one or you can “rewind” your entire store.

Mike concluded his presentation by identifying the 4 most common data disasters:

  1. Editing or modifying theme code
  2. Giving access to employees or freelancers to work on your store
  3. 3rd party app integrations misbehaving
  4. Simple human error

Rewind - the easiest way to protect your online business

Bruce Warren, who is the Global Vice President of Marketing at TradeGecko, started his presentation by identifying the main operational challenges business owners face when scaling their business. These challenges include:

  • Being stuck on an old system with no paper trail
  • Overselling and underselling
  • Bad communication between teams and systems
  • Painful audit at year end

This is where the TradeGecko inventory and order management solution comes into play, as Bruce explains:

TradeGecko is your single source of truth to manage your entire backend operations.

In the second half of Bruce’s presentation, he discussed how wholesalers are moving away from the traditional brick & mortar models and that there are more opportunities nowadays for wholesalers to promote their brand both offline and online.

Wholesalers need to be in control of their own growth and not rely so heavily on resellers to sell their product.

Wholesalers should also be taking advantage of selling on multiple channels such as Shopify, Magento, Amazon, WooCommerce or 3rd party ecosystems (Walmart Marketplace, eBay, Houzz, Jet, Wayfair, Overstock, GroupOn, and Ets). TradeGecko integrates with all these platforms, which makes it easy to sell on many different channels and scale your business quickly.

One of TradeGecko’s goals as we expand is to ensure we connect to the best-in-class marketplaces, globally.

Rewind and TradeGecko are here to help protect, better manage, and scale your operations. Being prepared and organized is vital so you can instead spend your time focusing on what you care about, with the peace of mind that everything is being handled securely through us.
