There are many plugins specialized in these tasks on platforms like Shopify, which will allow you to update your inventory according to the frequency you choose and the needs of your business, both physical and online. In addition, it will help you know which products are the best sellers.

By automating this process, you will avoid having a person to update your eCommerce stock manually, which is a great improvement for your business.

3. Recommend products to your customers

By studying the buying behavior of your customers, you can offer them recommended and featured products based on their preferences so that they repeat or make a purchase.

You can also personalize advertising, so that it is based on the interests shown by users and, therefore, more effective.

This recommendation to buy your products can be done in a section of your own eCommerce or through email marketing, automatically sending your customers the most appropriate product catalog for them in case they have left your website without seeing this section.
