things we hate

Today we’re taking a break from our normal programming to go on a short rant about things we hate in the ecommerce industry.

We want to shed light on some of the frustrating things we’ve come across over the years to help you keep your sanity as you’re growing your business.

We believe in the importance of truth and transparency, and that every single business is different. I hope our little rant today will help you avoid frustration and see through the B.S.
