3. Does Cova integrate with online menus and marketplace websites to enable online ordering and curbside pickup?

This allows customers to reserve online for curbside pickup or even order for delivery, thus enabling stores to provide a seamless customer experience. The system also offers open APIs that facilitate building a custom website and menu solutions. These integrations let you manage your inventory and order fulfillment directly from one place—the Cova POS. With Cova eCommerce, orders placed online on your SEO-optimized website will be sent to the POS in real-time, and inventory will be updated immediately on your menus so that customers always know what’s in stock.

5. Why is Cova eCommerce better than online menu providers?
An integrated cannabis eCommerce solution like Cova eComm surpasses iframe online menus due to the various benefits it offers. Firstly, it provides a seamless user experience, allowing customers to browse, add items to the cart, and complete purchases within a single platform. Secondly, it facilitates centralized management, and dispensaries can easily update product listings, inventory levels, pricing, and other crucial information from a single administration panel. However, most importantly, a native eCommerce solution like Cova allows Google to crawl your dispensary menus and website, making your business appear in organic search results, which augments your product SEO efforts, unlike with a third-party online menu provider.
6. Which digital payment solutions are included in Cova Pay, and what are the benefits?
Cova Pay offers cashless payment solutions like PIN Debit, ACH, Credit Cards (Canada), and branded Gift Cards. These offer convenience and various other benefits for cannabis businesses. Customers can easily pay with trusted methods, and dispensary businesses can maximize revenue by allowing customers to freely add to their baskets without worrying about cash. Evidently, customers tend to spend 25% more when they are not limited by the amount of cash they may be carrying on them. Cashless payments also enhance safety, efficiency, and the overall shopping experience by reducing robbery risks and inaccuracies and offering faster transactions.
