How to handle Leads' objections?

Written by Christophe Spinetti  on  Friday 5 March 2021

Whether you do sales in person, over the phone, or via email, you are regularly confronted with objections from your leads or clients. There are, of course, some basic rules to follow when dealing with objections. But our goal is above all to give you points specific to selling apps.

What are the most common objections:
1/ "it's too expensive" or "it's not the right time to invest"
2/ "I don't have time to take care of it"
3/ " I already have a mobile website"
4/ " it will never work"

What are the basic rules for responding to objections?

  • Don't snap or respond in a hurry. On the contrary, stay open and accept criticism. Don't take your clients' objections personally. Take your time before answering, it could make the situation worse.
  • Consider remarks as requests for information. Ask your clients questions, ask them to clarify their thoughts. Better yet, ask them what solution they could bring to the problem, what their point of view is. You're there to listen to your clients and you're interested in their opinion. The goal here is to make your client feel valued and that their opinion matters. Even if you don't have an immediate solution.
  • Finally, deal with the objection anyway. You've been open to their request, you've asked for clarification and for their opinion. But you can't walk away. Either you don't have an immediate answer to give them and in this case, come back to them quickly (and do it systematically, whatever the answer, it's important). Either you develop your points according to all the details you obtained at the beginning of the discussion.
If you follow the basic rules above, then you'll deal with objections. So, once you've acknowledged it and asked your lead for clarification, here are the answers that can be given to the most common objections:

Written by Marie Pireddu  on  Thursday 4 March 2021

Thanks to your feedback, we have now added advanced settings allowing you to manage your tax rates by products and per region in addition to the global country rate. 
Indeed, Tax rules vary depending on countries and are often broken down in a different set of rules depending on regions or states within a given country. 
Different taxes will also apply to different products. 

With the advanced settings, you can now configure your taxes very precisely.

Note: If your shop is located in the US or Canada, this does not apply. Taxes are already managed accurately by TaxJar. This new option is for our clients located in the rest of the world and more specifically Europe.
