What is the Store?
The 'Store' is a shopping cart solution that allows you to manage and sell products from your gym/studio to your clients. It's built into your clients 'Member app' or 'Standalone App' and can also be used to sell products directly from your dashboard.
All purchases are tracked in the dashboard so you can analyze the performance of each item, see a breakdown of revenue, give incentives to staff to push add-on sales and mark items that have been collected by clients.
Why you should use your Store during the COVID-19 lockdown
You may be facing paused or even canceled memberships due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We highly recommend you consider running live workouts streams but another cash flow opportunity you should consider is selling products.
Whether you have always had the Store as a Glofox feature or if you've just received it in a recent upgrade, the Store is really easy to use and a great way to bring in additional revenue.
Things to think about before you jump in;
- Your store is not automatically set up for a delivery system. If you want to ship items to your customers this must be done outside of Glofox
- Considering the above, 'buy now collect later' is a good system to encourage your members to support you now and also return to your facility later. This will help you improve cashflow and retention
How to make the most out of your Store
To bring in additional revenue, make sure you're using your Glofox Store to the best of your ability.
