Going online has become more important now than ever for businesses. But small and medium enterprises (SMEs) often struggle with limited access to funds or financial resources, inhibiting their digital adoption.
To make eCommerce accessible to many entrepreneurs, RUSH is offering its newest eStore solution, Flash, without any monthly subscription fee to a limited number of merchants. This will enable them to build their stores on the GCash app’s marketplace, GLife, at zero cost, allowing their brands to be visible to the e-wallet’s over 66 million customers.
“Profitability is the ultimate priority of entrepreneurs, and building an online storefront is sometimes too costly for merchants. We want to solve this pain point with our newest eStore package, giving business owners an end-to-end eCommerce platform at no monthly cost. Now, getting an online storefront is made easier and simpler, with potential for even wider profit margins,” said Jeferson Cruz, RUSH Chief Commercial Officer.
Flash equips entrepreneurs with the tools they need to meet their customers wherever they are in their buying journey and helps them get onboarded on GLife easily. GLife allows users to shop for goods, order food, avail of services, pay for their orders via GCash, and choose to collect their orders or have them delivered straight to their doors— all within one app.
By signing up for Flash, merchants will have access to their own Content Management System (CMS) that serves as their business’ central dashboard so they can set up their store, generate voucher codes, build their customer base, and ensure smooth business operations.
Even with a free package, the capabilities of the platform are not reduced. Businesses can enjoy its unlimited features. They can add as many account users as needed, consolidate all the branches in one storefront, and upload an unlimited number of products. Store frontliners can also perform order processing, inventory management, and delivery booking using the RUSH Merchant app.
By having their own storefront within GLife, RUSH merchants get instant access to GCash’s ever-increasing base of more than 66 million users from day one and maximize GCash’s wide and organic social media reach. They can also join GLife-exclusive campaigns that give participating merchants free brand placements on GCash’s top-performing in-app ad placements.
“Bringing SMEs online for free on GCash through its GLife marketplace further solidifies our commitment to make eCommerce accessible to every entrepreneur. We are excited to see more and more merchants embrace digital transformation as they future-proof their businesses towards a more sustainable business growth,” said Stephanie Kubota, RUSH Chief Executive Officer.
RUSH is now powering more than 300 brands serving 5 million customers, helping businesses of all sizes thrive in the growing eCommerce space without the need to subscribe to additional platforms and software solutions.
