Why should I consider ShopTill-e?

Retailers can no longer afford to just sell through one channel. Consumers want a seamless shopping experience whether they buy online or instore.

Over the recent Black Friday weekend, 89.7m US shoppers bought multichannel compared to 34.7m instore only and 41.4m online only.

So how do I sell multichannel?

Using a different system or platform for each sales channel is obviously time consuming.

Stock control can be challenge, if you sell a product through one channel it also needs to update on the other sales channel too, which either means a manual process or an expensive integration.

Another element is reporting, as it may only provide you with reports for each channel and won’t necessarily tell you the complete story across all your sales channels.

ShopTill-e can help with all the above, it’s the perfect retail solution for most small and medium sized retailers and we've put together some points to help you make an informed decision about the benefits of ShopTill-e for your own business.

You choose how and where to sell your products

Seamless shopping is what the consumer wants and the ShopTill-e platform is an incredibly flexible system, it has to be in this modern, retail world. 

You only need to add your products once and then you are able to sell seamlessly :-

  •  in your retail shop or face-to-face using the ePOS (point of sale system) 
  •  online with the ecommerce system 
  •  or through eBay, Amazon, Etsy etc with the marketplace integration

There is no double entry of products, ShopTill-e automatically synchronises, across all your sales channels, keeping your stock uptodate and providing valuable sales reports about what’s selling, what’s not, how and when, across all your sales channels.

However, we recognise that selling multi-channel is a progression and you may not be ready to sell multi-channel just yet, but you want the peace of mind of knowing that the system you use will be ready to grow, when you are.

So if you want to sell in-store now and add ecommerce later, or vice versa, you can.

Choose from :-

Low cost, straight-forward pricing - no additional plugins – you get everything!

With ShopTill-e you get all the features included in each plan - ShopTill-e doesn't charge for additional plug-ins or additional features.

We found with some systems you needed an upgraded plan to sell more products, or an additional plugin to have the discount system or ability to sell gift vouchers card or get support, but at ShopTill-e we want you to be up and running, with everything, as quickly as possible.  The more successful you are, the better! 

  • Epos - just £35 per month.
  • Ecommerce - just £35 per month.

Just because it’s low cost, doesn’t mean it’s not sophisticated!

Epos (point of sale system) can work with your existing hardware

ShopTill-e ePOS works on a wide range of equipment such as your existing PC, tablet, laptop.

You may wish to have a professional POS set-up with all-in-one POS units, touch screens mounted on countertops, as well as industry standard receipt printers, barcode scanners and cash drawers and that’s ok – ShopTill-e ePOS can work with virtually any point of sale hardware (whereas with some other ePOS systems you are more limited to mPOS style hardware as their system only currently runs on tablet iOS).
