Click + Collect and your bike shop

Click + collect is a purchasing option that is changing the way consumers shop with retailers. This allows the consumer to buy online for in-store pickup. It gives the customer the convenience to shop how they want, instant gratification to get the product the same day, and cost savings by eliminating the shipping charges. As the retailer, it gives you increased sales by adding a cash register online, face to face interaction with your website customers, and a competitive advantage over shops not able to offer this feature. Ready to get started? Follow the steps on our how to setup click + collect guide or contact the support team for help.
