September 4, 2020

At Pomelo Pay we know that not every business has the time, money or know-how to create an e-commerce store from scratch.

That’s why we’ve come up with a cost-effective, hassle-free and easy way to help business owners create an online presence and take online payments.

Our e-commerce platform is free to use and features all the basic e-commerce features and functionality you need. You won't need any plugins, Wordpress account or specialist e-commerce software.

Even if you are a beginner, in just a few steps, you can have your own online store.

Introducing shop

Pomelo Pay's shop is the perfect solution for merchants looking to set up an online e-commerce store as soon as possible.

Businesses that want to test markets and products can also do so immediately with our free online store builder.

In just a few clicks you can create an online shop and sell products without the need for a website. Instead of a URL, the shop can be shared via a scannable QR code or through a clickable link.

With a simple, fuss-free set up it’s ideal for businesses where the focus is on speed and cost-saving. You don't have to worry about pricing, paid plans or premium plans.

The only thing you pay is a transaction fee if you make a sale, everything else is free!

Why use shop?

Easy to set up

Getting started couldn’t be easier. First you’ll need to create an account via the Pomelo Pay app. Once your account has been approved, simply head to our website and start building your shop by adding products.

You can add unlimited products and customise your storefront to reflect your brand. You can also write great descriptions and add images/photos to really entice your customers.

Because we believe in simplicity you will not be bombarded with hundreds of templates. Instead, we offer one fresh clean and modern look that really shows off your products.

With minimal fuss, you can create an online business without wasting hours on time-consuming website builders.

Once your e-commerce website is built you can create multiple locations, if, for instance, you own a number of coffee shops across the city. All you need to do is duplicate the original shop then modify its products according to the location. It couldn’t be simpler.

Customised fields

With the Pomelo Pay shop you can decide which information you request from your customers when they are at checkout. You can also set your shipping rates, payment methods and payment options.

If you deliver your products simply tick the ‘Address’ box and you can use ‘Service Charge’ to add on a delivery fee.

You can also personalise your shipping labels with an Order Message for that friendly final touch to the order.

Secure payments

Customers can choose and pay for products on your Pomelo Pay shop through a secure SSL payment gateway that accepts Apple Pay, Google Pay and all major debit and credit cards.

Each payment is tokenized, which means that customers’ details are never shared or stored with either the merchant or Pomelo Pay.

Customers can be completely confident that all of their sensitive information remains in safe hands.

Low cost

It’s free to create a shop on Pomelo Pay; the only thing you pay for is the transaction fee when you make a sale.

We do not charge monthly contracts or fees for using additional features. It won’t cost you extra to add multiple locations or brand your shop. Everything is free except the transaction fee.

Share your shop

Each Pomelo Pay shop comes with a shareable link and a scannable QR code which can be used to share the shop with other people.

Shareable link

Once your online shop is created you can generate a shareable link that acts as a custom domain name and looks like this.

The link is great for promoting your shop on social media as it can be easily copied and pasted anywhere online. If you want to make it shorter you can do so using a free tool like Bitly, which you can incorporate into your email marketing.

QR code

Each shop also comes with a scannable QR code. When a customer scans that code with their phone camera they will be taken to a webpage that displays your online shop.

QR codes are incredibly versatile as they can be displayed in lots of places, such as flyers, posters, brochures, on counter tops and on walls.

In the socially-distant era, QR codes provide a solution for bricks and mortar shops who want to keep customers away from the counter or from touching POS machines.

By displaying your QR in your shop customers can browse and pay for products without having to go up to the counter to pay.

For example, if a customer is buying bread at a local bakery, they can simply scan the QR code and gain immediate access to the bakery’s online store. Then, they pick their product, pay online and pick up their order without waiting in the queue!

This offers a secure and safe way for consumers and businesses to interact without putting anyone’s health at risk.
