Benefits of multichannel selling

First, let’s go back to the benefits of selling multichannel. A survey by Harvard Business, found that 73% of those surveyed used multiple sales channels during their shopping journey.

It showed that those who shopped multichannel were the most valuable customers to retailers, with an average spend of 4% more when shopping instore and 10% more online, than single-channel customers.

These multichannel shoppers were found to be more loyal with 23% more repeat visits to the retailer’s shop, as well as more likely to recommend that retailer than those who used a single sales channel.

And surprisingly, it found these multichannel shoppers who searched online beforehand, led to greater in-store purchases. Traditionally it had been thought that shoppers “showroomed” ie researched instore and then bought online, but the survey found vice versa with shoppers “webrooming”.

In summary it found a retailer offering multichannel capabilities ultimately drew more shoppers to their physical shops, as well as a higher spend.

So with the above in mind it seems obvious that retailers should provide shoppers with a multi-channel experience.

But a question often asked is…

How can retailers sell multi-channel efficiently and cost-effectively?

Selling multichannel is often thought of being complicated, for example stock control can be challenging; if you sell a product through one channel it also needs to update on the other sales channels too so that stock levels are uptodate, but this often means a manual process or an expensive integration.

Also keeping products uptodate can be a minefield, updating each sales channel with current data, new products, and prices.

Another element is reporting, viewing reports for each channel but not necessarily seeing the complete story across all your sales channels, which means you could be making assumptions rather than having a clear picture in real-time.

And, using different software, system, or platform for each sales channel is obviously time consuming and can also be costly, paying for each element and all the functionality needed.

And that’s where ShopTill-e can help….

Get seamless, multichannel selling

What if you could use just one system to sell everywhere, offering that seamless shopping experience that a consumer wants?

Just one system that allows you to sell in-store, sell online, sell on marketplaces, upload your catalogue to Google Shopping, Instagram and Facebook.

One system where inventory is centralised, just add your products once, there’s no double entry of products, you choose where you want to sell and as each product is sold stock levels are automatically adjusted, in real-time, so you’re always uptodate.

One system that you can oversee from anywhere, at any time and view reports of what’s selling where and when.

Welcome to ShopTill-e....

9 - Low cost, straight-forward pricing, with all the features included

The ShopTill-e monthly plans and pricing are easy to understand and low cost, but low cost doesn’t mean it’s not sophisticated, far from it!

We found with some retail systems on the market started with a low headline figure but you needed to upgrade to gain the features you actually need to sell successfully, such as use of the discount system, or to sell gift vouchers, or even to get support, thus making the monthly fee more expensive… but not with ShopTill-e.

Other systems charge for extras, we don't, we include it all automatically; afterall the more successful you are, the better it is for us too!

*Marketplace integration can be added to each plan should you wish to sell on Amazon, eBay etc, and we don’t charge for this integration, although Channel unity will have their own fees however ShopTill-e has negotiated fantastic rates that you won’t get by going direct.

Running a retail business has its challenges and here at ShopTill-e we want to provide you with a great retail platform that will make your retail journey as easy as possible by including all the great features automatically as standard.
