There are two kinds of people in this world: those who dont want to see holiday decorations until the month of, and those who think its perfectly acceptable to start talking about Christmas in July (yeah!) For both kinds of people, RepricerExpress has these 7 awesome tips you can employ to start making the busy selling season easier for you.

1. Subscribe to Weather Apps
In a lot of countries, snow happens. And in countries that arent used to it, it can grind things to a complete halt, which makes it hard to fulfil your deliveries.

Sign up for a couple of really good weather apps, even the ones that cost money. Itll be well worth your while to know what weather conditions will be in various cities and countries so you can plan and adapt accordingly.

2. Know When the Crunch Times Will Be
There are several points in the holiday season that you should be prepared to work overdrive for, and also give a heads up to your staff. Generally, it tends to be the three weekends after American Thanksgiving (it falls on 24 November this year), as those Saturdays-and-Sundays are usually pretty hectic.

Knowing when the busier times are ahead of time may not erase them, but it makes it easier to deal with when you can block it out exactly on the calendar.

Then, you can start to give notice to buyers that theyll need to buy by X date if they want it to arrive by Y time. As an extra little bit, factor in the handling time on your end so you dont inadvertently take orders that will miss the deadlines.
