Retailers and wholesalers are being thrown a lifeline of free click and collect, and home delivery software, to help combat the fallout of the latest coronavirus lockdowns.
With shoppers fearful of travelling to their local stores amid the latest outbreak, technology company Grofuse is offering the free set-up of its Mercury Order online ordering software with the added bonus for retailers/wholesalers of ‘no sales – no pay’.
Mercury Order gives retailers the opportunity to start trading “same day” with effortless set up of their online stores by uploading just one spreadsheet containing all products. The platform operates as a standalone online platform or can be easily linked to existing retail websites. The platform also integrates with cloud inventory systems, should retailers desire that option.
Retailers pay as little as 1.8% per transaction (with a ceiling of 2.9%) – the lowest fees available on the market today. They can easily customise slots for click and collect and/or home delivery offering for the times that suit them and their customers.
Grofuse Director Ian Cullen explains: “We’ve all witnessed the queues during the spring-summer lockdowns – will shoppers be so willing to do that as the cold, wet and windy winter weather takes hold? There is also the intensified fear factor among shoppers and we want to give retailers the prefect tool to satisfy the demands of their customers at this time.
“Right now the need is acute and Mercury Order allows retailers to protect their customers, their staff while not having to pay for expensive bespoke software, or resort to unreliable and time-consuming social media or telephone ordering.
“Embattled food wholesalers who are scrambling to sell direct to consumer due to the closure of restaurants and build-up of stock, will also find Mercury Order is a perfect solution to keep their businesses trading at this difficult time.”
Free daily webinar demos (15 minutes) are being hosted by the Mercury Order team over the coming weeks to allow retailers and wholesalers to see for themselves how simple and cost effective the platform is for their businesses.
