Why should you use automation software for your thrift store?

Automation software is no new thing. It’s been around for decades in some form or another, but in 2021, it’s here to stay.

Let us start out by giving you a quick definition of what automation software is exactly:

“Automated software testing is the ability to have a software tool or suite of software tools test your applications directly without human intervention.”

Meaning that, you can skyrocket your sales and perform better at higher speeds with less actual interaction from yourself or employees physically working in your brick and mortar storefront.

Thrift stores can benefit from this software in many different ways. Allow us to tell you more about how our new automation software will be able to ramp up your thrift store to new heights.

Having a thrift store in today’s world has been made possible and easier than ever before with the use of automated systems.

If you didn’t think it was something you could do, think again. Major retailers have benefited highly from moving their inventory online, and we’re here to help you do the same for your thrift store.

How will an automation software help with increased foot traffic to your store?

Easy. Foot traffic will automatically shoot up substantially once your items are up and running online.

This increased exposure will help to propel your brand into crowds never before reached. Doing so will then increase your exposure online, meaning that more people will be talking and messaging each other about your business.

When additional people are talking about your business, more of them are likely to search where you are, and visit your store on their next trip to your city or town.

Customers from past and future will notice your logo more frequently and will recognize it in passing. This will have them questioning what you have available, and will make them want to stop in more often.

How does a thrift store benefit from listing online?

A thrift store benefits from listing their products online because they are able to reach a much larger audience, from multiple different demographics.

Not only will opting for a presence online help with reach, but they will also benefit from the use of all of the many platforms that exist to sell on.

The great thing about adding the web to your portfolio is that you are able to cater to each individual platform with your choice of specific products.

Allow us to give some brief examples:

  • eBay-Great for items of all categories, all sizes, and all demographics. eBay is the 2nd largest online marketplace in the world with a whopping 1.7 BILLION visits per month.
  • Amazon-Awesome (and largest) marketplace for listing new items, books, and duplicates. If you thought eBay was something, check out these stats. Amazon reaches global customers as well, coming in at a staggering total of approximately 5.2 BILLION visits per month! Wow.
  • Poshmark-Probably one that you’ve heard of over the past few years. Poshmark is a growing and flourishing company that excels in cute, chic, and new products. You can reach a pretty diverse crowd here as well, but this platform is most popular with the female demographic, and reaches on average about 47 million visitors a month.
  • Etsy-Etsy excels in handmade or vintage goods. This is especially helpful if you provide handmade items in your store, and want to get the word out to the rest of the world. Check out their stats with approximately 392 million visits each and every month. They are number 8 on the list of the biggest online marketplaces in the world.
  • Depop-This platform is quite small still, but rather mighty. Don’t let its numbers fool you. Depop has been rapidly growing from the start with Gen Z at its core, killing it from vintage to streetwear and even upcycled, repurposed pieces. You can check this platform out for those one-of-a-kind wears that you’re not likely to find anywhere else. Depop comes in at about 11.6 million visits per month, but if you’ve got the right products, it could easily be the only platform you need.
  • Shopify-If you prefer dropshipping, (with any product in mind), this is the marketplace for you. Shopify is trusted by over 1.7 million businesses, and it is surely suited for you if you prefer this way of selling.
  • Grailed-Coming in at a giant 7.5 million visits each month, Grailed is definitely a platform to keep on your radar. If you’re not already familiar with this platform, they excel in selling online to the entire male population. Specifically geared towards menswear, they are a rapidly growing app to watch out for.
  • Mercari-A lot of people like to refer to this platform as the “mini eBay.” It’s nowhere near as large or old as the digital dinosaur itself, but it packs a serious punch in the online world of selling. Be sure to keep them in mind when you decide to list online, as they are holding their own at around 28 million visits per month.

As you can tell, there are literally endless possibilities when you decide to move some or all of your inventory online.
