Essential Offers Ecommerce 


It’s official! After many, many hours of hard work and dedication, the Essentials Group eCommerce Integration Infrastructure is finally ready to launch! It has been a long time coming, but this innovative Infrastructure has now been perfected and is ready to take you and your business to the next level. 

Why eCommerce?

According to Digital Marketing Community, there are six reasons why eCommerce is important to your business: 

  1. In the emerging global economy, eCommerce has increasingly become a vital component of business strategy 
  2. It is a solid catalyst for economic development and promotes global business operations
  3. The continued expansion of eCommerce could lead to downward pressure on inflation through increased competition, cost savings, and changes in sellers’ pricing behaviour
  4. From start-ups to small and medium-sized businesses right through to huge brands, there are many companies that can benefit from their own online store, where they can sell their own products/services
  5. The speedy influx of new technology in the retail experience has driven consumers of all ages to expect a convenient and connected experience that seamlessly aligns with their everyday lives
  6. It effectively prepares you for the trade of the future

The Benefits of Essentials’ eCommerce Integration Infrastructure 

The launch of this eCommerce site offers Essential members a remarkable range of opportunities: 

  • Marketing support and guidance while leveraging direct marketing 
  • Product range expansion and reaching untapped markets
  • Generate more instant sales, faster 
  • Build valuable brand awareness and high levels of visibility

Every element of this ensures that you can boost your business while fostering greater customer satisfaction.

Payment Gateway options are already integrated for ultimate ease of use and convenience. We have also already contracted established, trusted couriers ensuring you can fulfil your orders quickly and efficiently. 

Essential eCommerce Support

Don’t worry – we’re a pack – we won’t throw you in the deep-end. The eCommerce offering is supported by a team with years of experience and top skills. Our members will have access to this team’s support, while having the capability to conveniently select and upload supplier products from our central online product database. This database is pre-populated with all the relevant product details which is required for a successful online store. With this approach, you can customise your store to match your existing lines, without limiting your expansion capabilities. It’s time to break into markets you haven’t been able to crack in the physical world! 

Make it Your Own

The front end of the eCommerce platform will allow you to customise your logo, upload a picture of your store, and add an “About Us” section. We’re offering you a fully-fledged and professionally managed virtual store for a fraction of the price of building your own. 

As Phase 1 of the online e-commerce offering, we will be launching what we call the “Lite” package. This lite version is especially customized to significantly simplify the management process of the online store. Future Phases of the online store release will introduce a “Full” version, which will be suitable for the advanced e-commerce trader.

Social Integration for High Visibility 

With quick and easy social integration, your new eCommerce store facility will link to Facebook, offering immense marketing capabilities. WhatsApp and Chat integrations also allow for quick and seamless customer service, increased sales, more efficient operations, and greater satisfaction.
