Giving professionals the option to sell their products online widens the consumer’s options
Livermore, CA (PRWEB) September 09, 2014
For the modern day salon and spa owner, booth renter, esthetician, and therapist, Vagaro’s comprehensive collection of features has been noted to be essential for their busy work day and business management. Since 2009, when Vagaro was founded, the spa and salon software has worked to improve and update existing features like online booking, customer and inventory management, and email marketing. Recently many of Vagaro’s professional software subscribers have asked for the ability to sell their products online to their clients.
Not only do most businesses express a desire to boost the business’s success through stellar customer service, consistent marketing, and strong online presence, but they also make it a goal to improve product sales. In this day in age, mass distributers like Target, Wal-Mart, and online retailers make it incredibly easy for consumers to purchase hair and beauty products at an affordable price. However, it can be quite difficult for consumers to find high quality hair products and spa-grade skin and body care products from these retailers, and many might simply settle for accessible, drugstore-priced products.
Giving professionals the option to sell their products online widens the consumer’s options, and the fact that they can order directly from the business’s website makes it incredibly easy for them to get a product without having to make a special trip to the salon or spa. Customers also have the option of purchasing the product and then picking it up at the business.
For the hair and beauty professional, setting-up the Online Shopping Cart is simple; it includes choosing the items you want to place in your online shopping inventory, setting-up each item with a description, image, and price, and creating a return/exchange policy. If they already have an existing merchant account, they can use the same account if product sales are under $1,000 a month. For anything over, Vagaro recommends opening up a separate e-commerce merchant account.
