At some point during the holidays you’re going to need a break. That’s great, but there are a few things to keep in mind, especially if you don’t have any hired help and do have all of the following:
Using your Store Vacation Settings is easy. Just follow these steps:
When you return from vacation (well-rested, we trust), be sure to do the following:
If you offer one-day handling, here are some possible scenarios that you might encounter, as well as suggestions for handling them:
No need to turn on your Store Vacation Settings. You can print postage labels and upload tracking for your Friday, Saturday and Sunday sales any time before midnight on Monday and they will still fall within your one-day handling time window.
Adjusting your Store Vacation Settings is also not necessary in this instance. You can print postage and upload tracking for any sales made on Wednesday, for example, any time before midnight on Thursday.
This is the time to use your Store Vacation Settings. A good rule of thumb is to use the Settings any time you’ll be away longer than two days with no ability to print labels and ship packages.
And, here’s one parting tip for those of you who offer one-day handling. If you have access to your Store Vacation Settings from your “away” location, you can always turn them off (and re-open your Store) a day before you return, as long as you will be able to print postage and upload tracking within one business day.
You work really hard. Now go enjoy yourself.
