Customers use the Internet today for almost everything – especially when searching for a product or service they intend to purchase. A report recently released by the Australian Retailers Association showed the Australian online food and beverage industry grew by 24.9% in 2020.

Here are the 3 online trends changing the way Food and Beverage Businesses operate.

Online Ordering:

2020 showed how important it is to have a strong online sales model. Companies with an existing online model or Companies who were able to transition quickly, benefited greater with the whole COVID situation. Online ordering is a complete online sales process for your business.

The key benefit of online ordering is the ability to offer your customers a way to place orders when it suits them. This then turns your business into a twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week automated machine. Your overheads decrease and your sales increase without needing to step foot into your store.

Online ordering is a simple way for your Food and Beverage businesses to increase sales and maximise profit.

Payment Gateway

A payment gateway is a completely automated online service that verifies and accepts/declines payments or credit card requests on your business behalf.

A payment gateway transfers your customers transaction information directly to the bank for automatic verification. The system will either approve or decline the request based on the information provided by your customer.

The key benefit of a payment gateway is secure transactions, rapid transaction processing and completely customisable set up for your business. You can automatically set payment days and payment limits. This is so important for your business in times of emergency or low/no stock times.

A payment gateway brings together your entire payment process keeping everything centralised.
