Compared to the E-commerce, higher real estate, labor, and inventory costs, maybe not significantly, but certainly have lagged brick and mortar business model behind.
A number of merchants have built their online business so as to flip this disadvantage on its head because they believe that if they don’t, then someone else will do it. Wal-Mart has allowed consumers to pick up online orders at their local store on the day it was ordered. Williams-Sonoma has used both its store locations and catalogs to build its online business.
Grocery online that many people have been talking about obviously indicates that there are gold underneath because of farmyard behind numerous villas stretch as far as the eye can see. In the Age of the Internet, online makes grocery sounds advanced, while in fact, it’s just another form of buying vegetables. Or shall we say, a different geography. Preselling and selling are available in using, which bears a close resemblance to our real estate sales.
Preselling is to sell our vegetables and fruits in advance as long as mutual trust has set. No quantity imposed to ensure the quality. This zero pollution planting is itself possessed of tremendously potential in profits and added values, and are more easily to earn recognition. The model seems more like trust-deal than a business deal.
Apart from preselling, all the other models we take belong to the regular one. The products basically come from careful choosing, so local delicacy appears first in online shopping. For example, Lychee, pineapple, and pomelo, which are mainly selected from vegetable plot and fruit ranch. This model may razzle for a while but last no long since we can see the ceiling. Its high cost and low-tech logistics are easily to be the last straw that breaks the camel’s back.
In terms of this, how to achieve expansion at low cost and distribution in high efficiency maybe the No. 1 question that merchants need to tackle in future.
