Black Friday and Cyber Monday: Prepare your online store
Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are just around the corner. This year retailers all over the world are super pumped up about the upcoming shopping events. With growing fears around the COVID-19 crisis and subsequent retail closures, millions of consumers have shifted to online spending and continue to do so.
As more customers will be rushing online to get the best BFCM deals, retailers should prepare to face possible technology and operational challenges and make their websites capable of processing large request volumes. While big corporations have teams to back up their stores, smaller independent businesses should prepare in advance to handle an increased flow of clients.
