How to Avoid After Effects of Covid-19 on ECommerce Business?
With the rise in regulatory actions to control the Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic, it is surely a time of crises for many businesses. Retail and FMCG Industries have taken the major hits, however, some industries have gained an opportunity to increase their business by adapting and developing the plans.
With some measure integrated by the government into the market, we have formulated scientific and reliable plans to ensure we play our part in stopping the virus spread while facilitating the customer experience regardless of the current situations.
As we all know that on March 22 whole India observed Janata Curfew, whereas e-commerce was exempted from the prohibitory orders of Coronavirus (Covid-19) Pandemic to provide the essential services throughout India. This is a huge win for the e-commerce sector to fulfil the demand spike built over the last few weeks.

Integrate Contactless Delivery
Contactless Delivery is a simple yet effective measure to deliver products with ease. If your Buyers agrees you can designate a safe place to deliver the products/package for the customer to safely transact at their convenience. You can check Domino’s Food Chain who follows this facility across all its restaurants where the customers can receive their order without getting in direct contact with the delivery staff. However, it can seem rather difficult if there is the involvement of expensive shipments, Hence it is a best practice for the delivery of packages to reduce points of contact at a larger scale.
