The government in most countries has relaxed the transportation and selling of vegetables & fruits. But still, sellers are facing many challenges. They are more exposed to infection as they go for door-to-door selling, even in some parts of the world, whole-sellers sit for hours but once-crowded vegetable markets are now dependent on a few retailers.
A few sellers have acted smartly by bringing their businesses online to receive orders beforehand so that they can simply pack the baggage for each customer and deliver it to the customer’s door following the necessary protocol of social distancing.
So being a people’s personal outlet you have to help all these greengrocers in selling their goods online. You can simply suggest them to come online with their online ordering website, exchange phone numbers at the time of buying vegetables for yourself, then compose an SMS for this and ask them to spread it in order to help other sellers also. Whatever measure you take, make sure that you don’t put anybody’s health at risk, follow all guidelines of lockdown and social distancing.
How To Bring A Grocery Store Online?
Simply start by registering a domain that will be used by the consumers for accessing the store online. Followed by subscribing WordPress Ecommerce and then enable ‘Store Pickup’ or ‘Home Delivery’ option from the eCommerce settings page on the admin panel.
WordPress Ecommerce is mobile-friendly, sellers can share their domain address with their customers and encourage them to place their orders online. Once they start receiving orders, they can simply pack the goods in separate baggage for each customer and deliver it. Whole-sellers may use the ‘Store Pickup’ option instead of home delivery so that retailers can preorder goods and pickup without crowing the place.
