Not ready to be done for the holidays? We aren’t either! Here are a few tips for extending your sales period:
Offer expedited or overnight shipping which is now available for popular Gooten products
Need help setting up shipping? Consider Advanced Shipping Rules if you’re a Shopify seller, which will allow you to offer all shipping methods to your customer.
A few extra selling days](https://www.gooten.com/blog/holiday-season/2018/11/20/just-in-time-for-the-holidays-overnight-shipping-now-available/) can translate to hundreds or thousands of dollars in profit, so don’t miss out on those last minute shoppers!
Order products in bulk this week and ship last minute orders yourself
We rarely suggest straying from our tried & true dropshipping model, but if you’re looking to pick up a few extra days of sales (and $$), try ordering some of your most popular designs in bulk and manually shipping orders for a few days.
Reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for a custom bulk shipping quote!
Consider a New Year’s or “Last Call for 2018” sale
Many people receive cash for the holidays, so don’t miss out an opportunity to entice your customers with end of the year deals and sales.
Consider adding a special design or product available only through year-end to create a sense of urgency with shoppers!
As an added bonus…
In the spirit of holiday giving, Gooten has a gift for you - we’re extending your holiday sales season an extra week!
From Saturday December 8th to Thursday December 13th, Gooten will automatically upgrade shipping from standard to expedited, as needed, on many of our best-selling products at no extra cost to you.
These upgrades will apply only to packages shipped within the lower-48 U.S. states. Orders containing single and multiple items are included, so encourage your customers to buy multiples and bundles! Consider this a gift from our team so you can sell more and longer this holiday season.

Products excluded from this list will not be automatically upgraded to expedited shipping, but you are free to select either an expedited or overnight shipping method at checkout.
Keep in mind, longer production times and shipping delays can happen during this busy season, so there are never any guarantees that an order will arrive in time for 12/24 (though we do our best and these shipping upgrades will certainly help!)
