The world was clueless in March on how to deal with a pandemic which brought everything to a standstill. The economic activities came to a halt and even procuring essentials became risky. Gradually, companies started innovating and adapting to make the best out of the situation. Shopmatic has altered its platform to help small grocery retailers in the country to create an online presence.
The international e-commerce firm will now facilitate the creation of web stores for small retailers without the compulsion of technical or coding experience. This service will cover all corners of an online grocery store including existing catalogues with unlimited listings, easy inventory management, multiple online payment options and the most important contactless delivery and self-pickup options.
“The relevance and need for digital selling have been further emphasised due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Digital selling is the new normal today, and we are focused on helping all small businesses to create an online presence for themselves to stay relevant, at all times. Grocery store owners and kirana dukaan owners can now create their stores on the Shopmatic platform with the ease of pre-built catalogues that save them a lot of time and effort to go online,” stated Anurag Avula, Co-founder and CEO of Shopmatic.
The company claims to be the first in the industry to provide an exclusive solution for local grocery stores. The service will allow the retailer to track inventory, sales, order, customers and more through the convenience of their mobile phone. They will also be able to offer diverse online payment options like Paytm, PayPal, PayU and provide the option of netbanking, UPI, debit cards, credit cards, payment links and bank transfer options.
Shopmatic will also provide the facility to share the pre-built catalogues and payment links on WhatsApp itself to make their reach better. To make the service more secure, the platform gives the option to schedule contactless delivery and self-pickup for priority customers.
