Take an omni-commerce approach to re-opening your store: increase profits and grow your customer base
It’s wonderful to see so many local businesses re-opening after restrictions were eased this week. Retail still looks very different with social distancing rules in place, extra safety measures and reduced traffic in stores. Join me in saying thanks for keeping us all safer.
Like many brick and mortar businesses, perhaps you are combining online stores with your retail business and allowing customers to order ahead for curbside or instore pickup. If you haven’t added online ordering to your sales strategy yet, it’s much easier than you may think – and you don’t have to lose your hard earned margins by paying 3 percent or more to huge online service providers like Shopify and Square. Make your online strategy as unique and distinctive as your own shop and take control of exorbitant card processing fees.
Step 1 – Swap your obsolete store POS terminal for the Clover Flex or Mini smart terminals. Make it easier for your customers to pay and take advantage of contactless mobile tap payments
Step 2 – Add your products right into the Clover dashboards catalog page. Take advantage of Clover Flex built-in bar code scanner if that is how you track inventory.
Step 3 – Right from the Clover dashboard, click “Sell Online” using the free Ecommerce app. This imports your inventory and configures your online store automatically. Simple and free to set up, it’s been rated the fastest to launch ecommerce web platform.
- Built-in Clover smart POS functions like bar code scanner and printer integration.
- Ecommerce integration with apps like Ecwid. Hundreds more in the Clover app store.
- Integrate with accounting packages like Quickbooks and save hours on manual reconciliations.
Say goodbye to high ecommerce card processing fees – I can offer you the same low cost plus fees for online sales as you would expect in store. Mastercard interchange fees are reducing to less than 1% this year.
