eCommerce Insiders

Write for Us

Please read the guidelines thoroughly before applying. While we try to respond promptly, it may take several weeks before you hear from us.

eCommerce Insiders writers are ecommerce subject matter experts. As providers to the online retail industry or retailers themselves, their perspective is shaped by direct experience.

Our writers contribute articles adhering to the following guidelines:

1. Retail-Focused
Content must be angled toward online retailers and fit into one categories/subcategories in the site navigation menu above. (If you feel there’s a category we’re missing, contact us to suggest another.)

2. Commentary or Educational
Content should either be educational with “how to” tips and tactics, or commentary on industry news or trends. We tolerate no explicit sales/marketing persuasion for your business in the article itself. We reserve the right to edit content and remove any promotional links before publication.

Every writer is given an “author box” which displays at the article conclusion. Links are permitted in this section which typically includes content such as your bio, company background, and a single offer.

Application Guidelines:

  • Please only apply if you have specific ecommerce experience, or experience in a field that is directly relevant to ecommerce (ie, fulfillment, ecommerce software, inbound marketing). Detail this experience in your application.
  • Applications without links to writing samples will not be considered.
  • In your application, please include at least one pitch for an article you’d like to write for Ecommerce Insiders.
  • Please query via our Contact Us form if you’re a business interested in submitting a guest post.


While a strong case can be made that exposure on eCommerce Insiders is more than adequate compensation, as a new site we want to reward our early writers for their commitment to our growth. As such, we’ve chosen to pay for high quality, exclusive, original content according to the following schedule:

  • $75 for every article from 400-600 words
  • $125 for every article >600 words
  • $150 for every article 600+ words

We pay writers once per month for the preceding month’s published articles. Articles that don’t meet our editorial guidelines of retail-focused, high quality, exclusive, original content will be rejected without pay.
