FAQs

Still got questions?
Let us know what you’re looking for.

E-commerce accounting is similar to standard accounting.  However, there can be complications that are unique to running an online store – such as high sales and transaction volumes, state sales taxes, managing inventory and tying your online store records into your bookkeeping system.

Most recognised accounting softwares will work for an eCommerce businesses.  Cloud-accounting software is designed to integrate with your store.  You may require an app, like A2X, to bridge the gap between your software and your store. Here at Rakow & Co we use Quickbooks as our software of choice.

While it is possible to handle your bookkeeping and taxes on your own, it would be wise to get professional assistance (especially when starting out). Professionals that specialize in ecommerce bookkeeping services can ensure that you are compliant, prevent you from under or over paying tax and help you run a more profitable store.

They are important for the same reason they are important in a brick-and-mortar business.  It is a legal requirement to pay tax. Good ecommerce bookkeeping services accurately calculate the amount that has to be paid.  Beyond your legal obligation, knowing how your ecommerce business is performing from a financial perspective enables you to make informed decisions and improve profitability.

There are a couple of things that you can try to increase ecommerce sales:

  1. Make sure the product info and pricing is clear and visible on your website.
  2. Make the sales process simple.
  3. Promote your products on social media.
  4. Run paid advertising campaigns on popular or unique products.
  5. Run promotions or combo deals.
  6. Pay an influencer to promote your product.
  7. Build an email base of customers to re-sell and up-sell in the future.

Whatever methods you use to increase your sales, make sure that you understand your costs and inventory movements well. You don’t want to run out of stock or not make enough profit to run cover your operating costs. Speak to an ecommerce bookkeeper like Rakow & Co for assistance.
