We, at Delegate, are committed to support our vendors as best as we can. During this difficult period, we understand that event businesses are facing a host of unprecedented challenges. To help, we want to provide you, our vendors, with an alternative avenue to sell your packages online. We’ve discussed the benefits of having digital gift cards in a previous article. Today, the focus will be on Instant Purchase. Both work along similar lines, in that it aims to encourage Delegate users to support local businesses!
With social distancing and circuit breaker now in full swing, reaching out to customers becomes a major hurdle. We are hopeful that Instant Purchase can help you in these trying times. From a vendor’s perspective, this is an amazing opportunity for you to populate packages which our users can instantly purchase. They’ll be able to use it at a later date, once everything settles down. The best part of this, you can list as many packages as you like with no listing fees.
During this circuit breaker period, as part of the community, we will be donating SGD1 for every package purchased on Delegate to The Courage Fund by NCSS. Donations will go towards supporting vulnerable individuals and families affected by COVID-19. This will come at no additional cost to you, so feel free to list as many attractive packages and spread the word to support our cause!
Alright, now that we know the benefits that Instant Purchase can bring to your business, let’s run through the process! On your part, please prepare the following details:
- Name of package
- Package price
- Usual price (if applicable)
- Package expiry date (if applicable)
- Validity period (if applicable)
- Package details (package inclusions, complimentary items and/or additional top-ups)
- How to redeem package
- Terms & conditions
- Package image (recommended image size: 525 x 400px)
Thereafter, you can upload an Instant Purchase package on your Delegate PRO account. Alternatively, submit your package details via this form and we will populate your Instant Purchase package for you. Do take note that submission works on the basis of 1 form per package. If you want to list multiple packages, complete and submit a form, then submit a new one to list additional packages.
