Based in South Africa, Johannesburg, Waldolytics Marketplace is a technology company which recently launched an online retail multi-vendor marketplace where small businesses can easily sell products directly to customers. The marketplace was developed to support small businesses who are desperate and can’t afford to design and manage their own online stores during the pandemic.
The global pandemic has created problems all around the globe affecting many industries due to restrictions imposed to curb the spread such as, social distancing and prohibiting the operation of certain types of businesses. Waldolytics saw the internet as an opportunity to create a solution that can overcome many of these problems by providing small businesses with the ability to sell directly to customers using e-commerce at no upfront cost.
“A lot of small business owners we spoke to highlight that COVID restricted their ability to sell physically, and they face all kinds of problems as they do not have online stores. Attempting to sell via social media creates trust issues with customers and difficulties to receive payments”, said founder partner Mpho Makgomola.
With Waldolytics Marketplace, sellers can create a store in less than 5 minutes at no cost. They have access to the necessary easy to use tools to create products, pricing, manage stock, delivery and publish products directly to social media shop platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.
Apart from the global pandemic, Waldolytics Marketplace will revolutionize how retail businesses operate by creating a gateway to selling directly to thousands of customers nationwide and keeping their stores open 24 hours. Receiving payments will be seamless as customers can pay online securely through credit/debit cards & online EFT, etc.
Selling on chat and social media platforms is risky and unreliable for both businesses and customers due to fraud, abuse, and scams. Without a reliable e-commerce solution, businesses experience problems receiving payments due to customers making payments using cell phone and bank transfers that require proof of payment that could be fraudulent resulting into losses for the business.
Waldolytics Marketplace provides a plethora of benefits to businesses and gives them the opportunity to reach customers beyond cities they operate, grow sales and brands. Visit their website to learn more.
