This is exactly what you get with AirPOS.

AirPOS is ideal for any budding retail business, offering you the features to maximise your customer experience, build brand loyalty and importantly, future proof your business with a powerful ecommerce solution, our Shopify integration.

This article is for existing customers thinking about upgrading to AirPOS and for new customers to explain why AirPOS is worth the extra investment for your business.

6 Reasons you should be using AirPOS

There are plenty of reasons to use AirPOS, in the following section we take a look at the main reasons why you would make the switch.

Make More Sales with Customer Loyalty Schemes

A sure way to maximise your sales is through the creation of a loyalty scheme. There is no better way to turn visitors into regular customers. It was found in a survey by More Than Accounts that “loyal customers are 5 times more likely to repurchase, 5 times more likely to forgive, 4 times more likely to refer, and 7 times more likely to try a new offering.”

AirPOS loyalty scheme comes at no extra cost and allows you to reward your customers with offers that are relevant to them.

By integrating your loyalty scheme with your Point of Sale you are removing the need for physical cards and coupons. When a customer is making a purchase you can simply check their account, reward points or use existing points against a purchase.

This makes the loyalty system a streamlined process for the customer and guarantees they will be rewarded every time they are in store.

Interestingly in the same recent survey, it was also found that “79 per cent of consumers prefer loyalty programs that do not require a card.”

Loyalty schemes offer huge rewards for you as a business owner giving you deeper insights into your customer’s spending habits.

You can use this data to create relevant promotions and market your business more effectively.

Coming into the busy season this is important as it ensures you have your most popular products in stock and can strategically market said products across socials and paid advertising.

Flexible Payment Plans with Customer Accounts

Consumers value flexibility and with AirPOS you have more options available on how your customers can pay.

Customer Accounts is an incredibly powerful tool within AirPOS. It allows you to store customer data, review their purchase history and importantly allow them to make payments against their account.

This has several use cases with the most popular being “buy now, pay later” schemes.

“Buy Now, Pay Later” schemes will act as an incentive for customers to shop with you, have the ability to make larger purchases with the confidence that they can pay over a chosen period.

Considering that last year as many as 30% of customers said they wouldn’t have been able to make purchases that year if it hadn’t been for buy now, pay later options.

If you’re a supplier of larger ticket items or services, customer accounts will help to drive up sales and order values. PayPal actually attributes “buy now, pay later” to a 39% increase in sales.

In 2020 customers expect to have flexible payment options. With the surge of competition and the growth of ecommerce, you don’t want to lose a customer to a competitor because they offer them flexibility in paying for products or services.

Scale with Trade Accounts

AirPOS gives trade merchants all the tools to ensure they can manage their customers effectively.

With the customer accounts feature you can allow customers to buy in bulk and return what they don’t use, or alternatively put down a tab in their name for multiple people to use. This streamlined process makes it incredibly easy for customers to shop with you giving you a competitive offering compared to DIY giants like B&Q etc.

Also with customer accounts, you are able to see the items that your customers need most often which will allow you to manage your inventory more strategically ensuring that you have all their favourite items in stock at all times.

Setup Shopify ecommerce

Sell Online with Shopify 24/7

AirPOS will future proof your business allowing you to sell to your customers anytime, anywhere, with our powerful Shopify integration.

Selling online for retailers have become more and more important with “Ecommerce sales are expected to account for 15.5% of retail sales worldwide in 2020”.

Therefore it is fundamental that any Retail store makes the transition into multichannel sales which can be done by using AirPOS Ecommerce, or the Shopify Integration.

AirPOS Ecommerce offers a basic store with limited functionality for creating a proper website. This is why we have partnered with Shopify, as it allows you to create a fully functional ecommerce website with no coding knowledge, in no time.

Our Shopify integration will enable you to double your sales channel by building your Ecommerce store ensuring customers can buy from you 24/7 no matter the location.

You will be able to seamlessly set up your store through your AirPOS account, using all your current product data which will mean all sales are connected and your inventory will be synced across both platforms.

In 2020 we have seen how volatile the retail industry can be.

By building an integrated Ecommerce store you never need to worry if you experience unexpected store closures, you can simply direct customers to your online ecommerce store and continue to sell as normal.

As well as this you are opening your business up to a much wider audience with an increased opportunity to maximise sales.

Building your online store with Shopify needn’t be complicated, with AirPOS your products will seamlessly sync across saving you time, effort and ensuring all your data is consistent both in-store and online.

It’s commonplace that other providers will offer special promotions and pricing plans for an EPOS solution, however, when it comes to the final bill you will be met with a number of hidden charges that will often double the price you were originally quoted.
