Get Started in eCommerce in 2023 with These Top 7 BFCM Deals

2023 is just around the corner, and it’s never too early to start thinking about your eCommerce game plan. To help you get started, I’ve rounded up the top 7 BFCM deals.

These are the top eCommerce software deals for CyberWeek 2022.

1. Woocommerce – the Platform Is Free, but the Extensions Are Not.

First up is WooCommerce. Now, if you’re planning to start your own eCommerce store in 2023, now is a great time to load up on some extensions. Now, if you’re not familiar, WooCommerce itself is free. But all of the add-ons to add extra features like for example, one I find myself buying quite frequently is Woo Subscriptions, and that costs extra.

It’s usually $200 a year, and right now, you can get it for just $119.

Now, I’ve got another tip to go along with this: if you buy it during Black Friday week, typically the next year, they’ll run another sale, and you can buy again with another discount.

Now, you can’t renew your old license. You actually have to purchase a brand-new license, but that’s okay. Just replace the old license code on your website with a new one and everything will go smoothly. This works with a lot of WordPress plugins, by the way.

2. Solid Affiliate – the Easiest Way to Add Revenue to your Woocommerce Store.

One of the best ways to add revenue to your eCommerce store is to add an affiliate program. I’ll cover a few ways to do that in this post.

Because we’re talking about WooCommerce, here is one of my favorite ways to start an affiliate program for Woo Stores. Solid Affiliate. They’re running a promotion right now to get 50% off all of their plans, and these are pretty reasonably priced plans to begin with.

One nice thing about hosting your own affiliate program on WordPress is that you don’t have to pay a recurring monthly fee. Sometimes these affiliate companies will even take a percentage of your sales! I’m alright with that if they offer enough in return, and we’ll talk about that in a second.

Solid Affiliate is a super easy setup product. I’ve got a whole video on it if you want to check it out, but it’s only gotten better since I made that initial review, and I’m happy to recommend it.

3. IconicWP – Conversion Optimized Extensions For WooCommerce

We’ll wrap up our section on WooCommerce and get to some Shopify soon. But first Iconic WP, which I believe is the maker of the top-of-the-line WooCommerce extensions. They are running a promotion where you can get any of their plugins for just $49, or you can buy their AllAccess Club for $179, which is 14 different extensions. It’s going to cover about everything you need to do with WooCommerce.

The Iconic bundle offers several different design features and useful add-ons like local delivery or bundling together products.

4. Shopify – Now Is the Perfect Time to Setup a New Store for BFCM 2023.

Next up is Shopify, the most well known commercial eCommerce platform. If you’re planning to start a new store in 2023, you can get the rest of 2022 for free.

Basically, it’s $1 per month for the next three months. That should give you plenty of time to build up your store, get everything in place, and test it out before you launch in the new year.

Now, I’m a big fan of owning your own platform, which is why I talk extensively about WordPress and WooCommerce. However, there’s something to be said for Shopify’s ease and security and speed, and scalability. It’s why so many huge stores are built on Shopify.

5. JungleScout – The Best Toolkit to Sell on Amazon.

Next up is an option for Amazon sellers, and that is the Jungle Scout bundle of products. They’re currently available at 20% discount.

Now, there are two different options here. You’ll see that they have a training course, for $1,000, or they have the professional plan, which is $279.

If you’re brand new to Amazon selling, you might consider their training. However, if you’ve been selling on Amazon for a while, you’ll probably find their bundle of tools very useful.

A few of the tools included with Junglecout are a keyword rank tracker, so you can see how your products are doing on Amazon, a product listing builder to help you optimize your product listings and make sure that you make the most sales.

So before you go and order a pallet of lunchboxes to store in your garage and try and resell on Amazon, why don’t you jump on Jungle Scout and see how the competition stacks up, and try to find out whether or not you can even make sales for that type of product.

6. Impact Starter Edition – Enterprise Power for a Start-up Price

Next up is Impact Radius. This is an affiliate program that will work with just about anything. You can see here they have native integrations with shopify. Big commerce.

WooCommerce, adobe commerce. I didn’t even know that was a thing. I think that’s probably Magento and Squarespace. So, Impact Radius typically starts at several thousand dollars a year for a large company to join up. But they’ve just released a newer, low-cost version of their program, which starts at just $30 a month.

They call it Impact Starter EditionStarter Edition, and you get all of the same features as Impact, but you don’t pay as much because you’re going to be a smaller company. So you can see here in their pricing table that Pro is usually two $500 a month. And if you’re a new WooCommerce store, that might sound insane versus $30 a month. Now, the benefits of signing up with a program like Impact is that there are already a ton of great affiliates on their platform, and they can search out and find your brand and begin promoting your products. You don’t have to find the affiliates, the affiliates will come to you.

Now, this does come at a cost. Impact is going to take 3% of the affiliate revenue. So know that going in, it’s not going to be as cost-effective as hosting your own affiliate program on solid affiliate. However, if you’re not making affiliate sales, you can’t take 3% of nothing. I think you can do that math.

7. Zen Arbitrage – Unleash Your Inner Gary Vee and Start Flipping

And last but not least, we’ll talk about a kind of off-the-wall product here called Zen Arbitrage. This is one of the most bizarre products I’ve come across, and I just wanted to highlight it because I thought it was fun, and I’m super curious if it would work. So if you buy this and make a ton of money, make sure you let me know about it. I’m tempted to try it myself because I’m so curious. So they’re saying they can help you find cheap books on Amazon and then help you resell them on Amazon for a profit.

I don’t understand how that could be possible, but they say it is. And how can you deny it? Here’s the evidence. Buy this book for $3.71 and then turn around and sell it for $29. Okay, so what’s this thing cost?

Well, you’re probably going to be a little surprised here. It’s just $697 per year. Now you’re going to get five months free. Usually, this is $1,200 per year.

So I’m super curious about this. It’s one of the most bizarre products I have come across. I mean, just what a weird concept. Like, go find some cheap books and resell them. You can probably check out your local garage sales in the spring and do the same thing.

But they’ll give you some training here and show you exactly what to do. And there is a free trial, so maybe I’ll take them up on that and see if it works. So that’s going to do it for the WooCommerce Roundup for Cyber Week 2022.

If you want to find even more ecommerce discounts, make sure you head over to the deal page and filter by eCommerce. I’ve categorized them all for you so you can sort through them. Whatever platform you’re on, you’ll find something that’s interesting to you.
