Shopmatic enables India’s local Kirana stores to go online- introduces grocery web-stores

New Delhi | 26th May 2020: The ongoing lockdown, aimed at containing the COVID-19 spread, has hampered the day-to-day functioning of local grocery stores across the country. Against this backdrop, international e-commerce enabler Shopmatic has expanded its portfolio to include tailored solutions especially for India’s Kirana stores looking to create an online presence.

Through its latest launch, Shopmatic will allow local shop owners to build their web-stores easily without the need for technical or coding experience. The solution will cover all aspects of a successful online grocery store including pre-built catalogs with unlimited listings, easy inventory management, secure and instant online payments and, keeping in mind the need of the hour, contactless delivery and self-pickup options.

Speaking on the launch, Anurag Avula, Co-founder & CEO, Shopmatic, said, “The relevance and need for digital selling has been further emphasied due to the CoVid 19 pandemic. Digital selling is the new normal today and we are focussed on helping all small businesses to create an online presence for themselves to stay relevant, at all times. We are very excited to introduce our latest solution, created exclusively for Kirana Stores during CoVid. 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.”

With this launch, Shopmatic stands as the first ever ecommerce company to be able to offer an exclusive solution for kirana merchants.

With Shopmatic’s tech-centric solutions, shop owners will be able to use their phones to track inventory, sales, orders, customers, and more. They will be able to offer multiple online payment options such as PayTm, PayU, PayPal, and offer netbanking, upi, debit card, credit cards, payment link and bank transfer options to their customers; The most exciting feature other than the pre-built catalogue is that merchants will now be able to share products on Whatsapp and share payment links with their customers, easily, and in a jiffy. 

To ensure the safety of customers and shop owners, Shopmatic has facilitated a flexible and contactless delivery system. Shop owners can organize the daily delivery of orders by location and time slot. For immediate and safe customer collection, it has also extended the option of store pickup. 

With such all-encompassing solutions, Shopmatic is perhaps the only ecommerce enabler, going the extra mile to help small shop owners make money and stay in business, in these trying times!
