Offer a delightful shopping convenience

For Shopify grocers, it is essential to make their online presence feel most convenient to shop. According to a report,

79% of consumers say that the shopping experience provided by companies is as important as  their products and services.

Hence it is quite necessary that you offer a seamless shopping experience to your customers in order to generate good business. You can add features and functionalities in your online store that allows customers to create a flexible shopping list. 

This makes it convenient for customers to keep a running list and place orders before their chosen item goes out of stock.

Better pick up experience

Generally, customers place orders online and choose the free delivery option. However, It has been found that most customers don’t hesitate to pay for super-fast deliveries within 6 hours of placing orders. 

This trend shows that by optimizing your in-store pickup process, you can not only earn some extra bucks but also can engage with a whole lot of customers.

Leveraging technologically advanced CRM like Salesforce, you can gain insights into customer 

details and offer services and products based on their shopping preferences.
