5. Why is Cova eCommerce better than online menu providers?
An integrated cannabis eCommerce solution like Cova eComm offers significant advantages over third-party online menu providers. Firstly, it provides a seamless user experience, allowing customers to browse, add items to the cart, and complete purchases within a single platform. Secondly, Cova eComm offers centralized management, enabling easy updates of product listings, inventory levels, pricing, and other critical information from a single administration panel. Most importantly, native eCommerce solutions like Cova eComm allow search engines like Google to crawl your dispensary menus and website, improving your business's visibility in organic search results and augmenting your product's SEO efforts.
6. Which digital payment solutions are included in Cova Pay, and what are the benefits?
Cannabis dispensary payment software, such as Cova's integrated digital payment solution, Cova Pay, offers various cashless payment options. These options include PIN Debit, ACH, and branded Gift Cards. Cashless payments offer convenience for customers, allowing them to easily make purchases without the limitations of cash on hand. By accepting digital payments, dispensaries can maximize revenue, as customers tend to spend more when they are not restricted by cash availability. Additionally, cashless payments enhance safety, efficiency, and the overall shopping experience by reducing robbery risks, and transaction inaccuracies.
