Find Vend with partners Klarna, iZettle and BigCommerce at: Booth 5K82
What’s in store for you
In addition to giving you the chance to meet new vendors and find great products, Spring Fair provides the opportunity to learn new retail skills and trends. You’ll also meet solution providers who can show you the systems you can use to be more efficient and profitable in your retail business.
Case in point: Vend will be at the event to demo how our ePOS and retail management system can make running your shop a breeze.
At stand 5K82 you’ll also find friendly faces from Vend’s partners Klarna and iZettle.
Vend recently partnered with Klarna to give SMB’s and independent retailers access to Klarna’s revolutionary flexible payment options in-store through Vend ePOS. With Klarna, customers only pay a fraction of the cost upfront resulting in increase in basket size by up to 55% and an increase of Klarna-loyal customers boosting repeat business. There’s zero risk to the merchant as you’ll get paid upfront with Klarna bearing all fraud and credit risk leaving you to focus on doing what you do best.
Brick Lane retailers Jake Jarvis and Tanya Brown of cult brand Hot Futures have already launched Klarna in-store on Vend, and were impressed with how seamless and setup was. Jake also commented: “Having Klarna on Vend in-store means we can offer our customers more flexible payment options and create a better experience for our customers.”
Make sure you stop by the stand to see a quick demo of the integration and find out more about Klarna. Rumour has it there will also be some Klarna swag up for grabs ⎯ so be quick!
You’ll also get to meet the iZettle team, who can discuss how the right integrated payment solution in-store can help you level up your retail business. Plus, hear about the new limited edition iZettle Ocean Reader which is made with 75% recycled plastic. This beautiful and powerful payment reader has been making waves across the world.
To top things off, Vend will have an iPad 10.2 and an iZettle Ocean Reader up for grabs! We’re giving away the devices to one lucky retailer who visits us at Spring Fair and does a demo on-site or online. So, don’t miss your chance to see great retail tech in action (and maybe win an iPad while you’re at it)!
Hope to see you there!
