The Coronavirus pandemic has forced us all to change how we shop, and with no certainty of when life will return to normal we are afraid that all those small outlets that we know and love will lose out. Our objective here is to help them to embrace and adapt to best serve their community and stay alive.
To help we are now offering a simple free online shopping tool.
Does it suit me?
We’re working with small businesses who need to offer a “kerbside collection” or “home delivery” service ONLINE, from experience these are:
Niche food shops that now have no visitors
Pubs or restaurants now offering takeaways
Small shops who cannot open but have stock
Fundamentally any outlets that can offer deliveries or “kerbside collection”
The many small businesses that rely on people coming into their shop, selecting their goods and paying as they leave will no longer be able to operate. With lockdown in place and 2-metre social distancing, customers are looking to place orders online and collect or ideally have delivery. This means without an online shopping tool these businesses will not be able to field the phone calls and email requests AND more to the point the customer will go elsewhere.
Our Online Shopping Tool…
Delivers a list of products from which the customer selects
Customer enters contact details and any message
Customer receives an email confirmation that the order has been sent
Shop recieves a email order with all the details
The shop now contacts the customer for payment and to confirm collection or delivery.
