Why should charities sell online?
Although difficult for charities to upload every single item to a website, ecommerce can be used to sell new goods and rare one-off items. You can also integrate your eBay shop, letting you maximise reach and sales, avoiding over selling and improving order to fulfilment.
A great website design makes supporters stop, shop and donate and Cybertill’s dedicated ecommerce and web design team can help maximise your online retail operation.
A truly integrated system that allows donated goods to be added to the EPoS system and are then visible in any store and online – all in real-time.
Click and collect
Offering convenient services such as click and collect can improve sales in-store and online with real-time stock levels visible across every location.
Bringing multi-channel to charity retail
Cybertill’s CharityStore platform makes it easy for charity retailers to become true multi-channel retailers, rather than selling in-store only or having your website operating separately.
The only charity retail system that can manage a charity’s retail website and eBay offering through a truly integrated system, CharityStore lets you add donated goods to your EPoS system which automatically goes live across all your sales channels in real-time. CharityStore even interfaces with eBay letting you control and manage stock by one retail system, increasing your reach for those rare and valuable items.
Whether you utilise Cybertill’s web design service or integrate your existing website using SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol), your website will use the same product and customer databases as your shops.
Security is paramount to charity retailers and GDPR is making organisations re-think how they use data, that’s why choosing an ecommerce hosting partner is critical. All data stored with Cybertill is securely located on web servers based in the European Union, giving you one less thing to worry about.
