Contact your customers

Reassure your customers and the people around you that you’re still there for them and how they can be there for you. Include a personal video message to your customers on your homepage (here’s how). Write emails, send messages or call your customers personally. This way, you can keep your established customer relationships intact and protect the way your local communities store.

Offer local pickup

Keeping your distance is the best way to stay together during this time. In addition to standard shipping, you can either offer customers the option to pick up the goods in front of your store or an agreed location. This way you can still reach customers in the surrounding area and offer contactless pickups as a local seller or restaurant.

Offer gift cards

Birthdays, weddings, and special events may be postponed but they’re not canceled. Selling gift cards online that can be redeemed in-store, provide customers with a way to give a gift and can help to keep your company liquid to cover running costs. Even while your doors are closed. Tip: Download our gift card templates and easily add them as a shop product.
