The convenience of online shopping is known to all of us, you can do it from the comfort of your own home and have items delivered right to your door. Perfect timing for retailers as we head into the very busy, Christmas shopping season.
Aquabatics in Calgary, AB and Western Canoeing and Kayaking in Abbotsford, BC are two of retailers who have shared with me over the last while their commitment to on line sales.
Both, retailers have invested significant dollars in re-doing their websites to efficiently and easily handle e-commerce from customers across Canada. The biggest surprise is both retailers, shipping rates. Aquabatics FREE for orders over $75.00* and Western FREE for orders of $100.00 or more*
*this does not include canoes and kayaks. Please check out their websites to review their shipping policies.
I have mentioned to both retailers that I am expecting to see an increase in their overall sales with this commitment they have made. This is only helped by the fact that the Canadian dollars is low and hopefully, Canadian consumers will have more interest in doing their shopping here in Western Canada.
