We get it. Grocers have had enough. Third-party marketplaces are making money off your customers online, but have left you out of the equation. And now, you’re faced with shrinking market share, squeezed margins, and uncertain shopper loyalty, at best.
Grocers who own their online shopping experiences can gain 15% or more in net margin on an annual basis, with an average of 800+ orders per week at $88 per online order.
Stop outsourcing your eCommerce experience and take steps to reclaim ownership of your customers’ online shopping journey.
We want you to keep all the revenue that should be yours, including advertiser dollars that are a critical piece to any grocer’s revenue stream.
At Mercatus, we want you and your customers to benefit from an online grocery shopping experience that you control – from start to finish, and from store to door.
With third-party marketplaces, on the surface it looks like you’re making money. You’re probably even seeing a modest increase in top-line revenue coming from marketplace orders.But when you crunch the numbers, you’ll likely see that you’re making much less than you should. Take back control of your grocery eCommerce and keep online revenue where it belongs – in your pocket. Contact Mercatus to receive your customized eCommerce financial analysis and revenue guide.
