Suppliers costs to service traditional retail are very high - 10% on average of the turnover. Mobishop solution reduces these costs up to 70%. Mobishop digitizes the communication between the retail outlet and the supplier (without sales reps). How it works: the outlet at any time through the app participates in promotions, learns about new products and places orders online. An online order goes directly to the supplier’s accounting system. The supplier delivers the goods.
in active sales
The potential is huge. Today, traditional trade points are not digitized. And the share of traditional trade, depending on the country, ranges from 25 to 90%. In Russia there are more than 300 thousand points of traditional trade.
We also see a high potential in the markets of developing countries like Indonesia, Philippines, India. The number of traditional retail outlets is more than a million in each of these markets.
