NRS has partnered with DoorDash, Uber, Point Pickup, and Relay services to handle the delivery logistics; making it a true omnichannel capability for retailers
National Retail Solutions (NRS) recently announced an exciting new offering to help independent retailers better compete against big-box e-commerce competitors – free delivery for retailers when their customers shop online through the NRS Ecommerce program.
NRS, a leading point-of-sale and payment processing provider for independent retailers, will now facilitate delivery for participating retailers at no additional cost per order. This could prove to be a significant competitive edge for small and mid-sized brick-and-mortar stores looking to grow their online presence.
“Delivery, at no additional cost to our retailers, is just another way we are helping them succeed amidst a plethora of big box online competitors,” said NRS CEO Elie Y. Katz.
NRS has partnered with DoorDash, Uber, Point Pickup, and Relay services to handle the delivery logistics. The retailer pays nothing for the delivery service since it is free as part of the NRS Ecommerce program, making it a true omnichannel capability for retailers.
However, customers pay a small delivery fee and service fee for the convenience of delivery to their door. With the NRS Ecommerce program, retailers can have their own branded website, inclusion in the BR Club app, robust point-of-sale and inventory management, and now free delivery for online orders.
“E-commerce continues to gain market share across retail verticals. Our program helps our customers capitalize on this shift,” said Ari Korman, SVP of E-Commerce at NRS.
The free delivery service is effective immediately for current and new NRS Ecommerce program participants. This allows independent retailers to better compete in an increasingly digital retail world.
