Faster Than Designing A Website, Treatmo Enables Instant Commerce
Leave the web behind with mobile for small business.
The burden of building and maintaining a website for a food business, even with template stores now available, is still cumbersome and time consuming. Confusing setups, often linking to third party-payment platforms, and the inelegant arrangement of products in a store, make it hard for business owners who want to focus on their product instead of website gymnastics. Add to it the ever-present problem of setting up shipping, many merchants simply give up and publish non-functional sites resulting in lost business.
From the customer perspective, every website is different and requires time to navigate. Even finding relevant information such as where a product is made, or how to get it, might be buried. Then finally at checkout many sites prompt customers to register an account before paying, delaying the purchase further and forcing a customer to leave a footprint they might not want.
Transitioning to the right mobile commerce (or m-commerce) platform solves all of these problems for food merchants and customers quickly. A mobile for business application goes where the web can’t and faster by optimizing technology and engagement tools of smart devices, providing key information at-a-glance upfront, and offering simple check out in a tap. Customers and businesses win with more convenient and simple interactions.
According to a major payments research firm, “m-commerce is going to experience explosive growth as retailers flock to the channel because that is where consumers increasingly want to shop.” In fact, mobile commerce’s share of digital sales is expected to increase from 20% in 2015 to 46% in 2020.
Leading the way for small food businesses across the U.S. that want an instant m-commerce capability, enhanced discoverability and a reduction in website effort and maintenance, Treatmo offers a simple solution.
