With the current state of the world, it’s only natural to ask yourself: How well is my business prepared for this new normal? We don’t blame you. As we’re sure you’ve heard, these are unprecedented times and you need to be ready for what’s to come. So let’s get into it: Here are the best practices for COVID-19 mitigation that we’ve heard from our customers.
First thing’s first: Social Distancing! The closest contact you will have with your customer during an in-store shopping experience is the payment process. How do we combat this? Contactless payment! The options are endless: there’s Apple Pay for your customers with iPhone, and Android Pay for those with Androids, and even a few other choices too! Phone Wallet, Smart Watches Pay, and Contactless Pay are all readily available to you business owners as well. Contactless Payment is a great way to make your customers more comfortable shopping and ensure safety in your shop!
So now that your payment process has been made safer, let’s talk about the rest of the buying process. Let’s say you own a restaurant or store front and you are forced to temporarily close your doors. What do you do to keep your business afloat? You build an online presence. Now more than ever, it is so important to get your business online and (virtually) in the hands of your consumers. For as long as the quarantines go on, people will be shopping from the safety of their homes. You need to be prepared to sell your goods and services online and continue bringing in revenue.
Now you might be asking: How can Winstar help? We are fully equipped and committed to getting your contactless payment system up and running. On top of that, we are able to offer our customers a click and collect service to get you the best online business presence possible. Did you know that because of COVID-19, online merchants are projected to gain an extra 107 billion dollars? We can help you become one of the businesses receiving a piece of that profit.
