October 2014 News Roundup

This week, I welcome back Drew Sanocki to the eCommerceFuel podcast as my co-host for the October News Roundup to look at the new and notable stories in the eCommerce world. This week, we are exploring Apple Pay, Facebook’s advertising changes, and the world of Alibaba, what we believe their potential is here in the states and how they differ from their biggest competitor, Amazon.

On this episode, Drew and I also discuss four of the top stories that have been popular on the eCommerceFuel forum. These topics are very close to our hearts as we have either struggled with those issues in the past, or are excited to see the outcomes in the near future. You do not want to miss our breakdown of the huge changes coming up in the eCommerce world, where we believe these companies are heading and how you can take advantage of these monumental changes.
