Do you wish you had something you could pour over your pet’s dry food, which would not only make it delicious, but also provide them with the nutrition they need?
After all, condiments have been used by people for years to help convince children and fussy eaters to finish their vegetables.
Bringing the power of condiments to pet nutrition is the idea behind a Colorado-based pet business Petchup, which was started by Anthony (Tony) Williams and his wife Toni.
Petchup is a fantastic idea, executed with fun and humanised branding. And we’re happy to report that the online store is powered by WooCommerce.

How do you differentiate yourself from the many competitors that are out there—your local shopping mall, Amazon, Etsy, Ebay, not to mention the millions of other small and medium-sized eCommerce sellers?

But are you so overwhelmed by the array of social media platforms out there that you feel a little “socially awkward?”
Never fear. Here’s the WooCommerce Social Cheat Sheet: just install the extensions, add your accounts and you will be a social (commerce) butterfly in no time.
Everybody likes to feel a little bit special sometimes.
What makes us feel more special than receiving something that is custom made specifically for us?
Personalisation can be a great eCommerce strategy for making your customers feel special—and for differentiating you from the competition. Tailoring products or services means that they can perfectly fit your customer, or allow them to express their unique personal style.
One of the coolest things about eCommerce is the ability to take previously idle resources and turn them into something useful.
Whether it be your free time, your infrequently used surfboard, or your dog walks; low-cost eCommerce software enables you to match your underused resources with someone who looking for just what you’ve got to offer.
