With the launch of the retail space, eBay expects to explore the possibilities of interaction between online and offline commerce.
The American company eBay, which provides services in the areas of online auctions and online stores, announced the opening of the pop-up store in Wolverhampton, UK. The experimental trading platform will operate within a month. With the launch of the retail space, eBay expects to explore the possibilities of interaction between online and offline commerce.
In the new eBay store, customers will be given the only opportunity to pay using a QR code. Cash to pay for purchases will not be accepted. Due to the widespread use of QR codes, the company's specialists plan to track the purchasing behavior and store revenue as accurately as possible.
It is reported that in the first offline store eBay will be presented to the goods of forty local manufacturers and suppliers. As part of the store, the company plans to hold several interactive workshops for customers. According to company estimates, according to 2018, about 25% of small businesses in the UK do not sell their goods online.
