HOW IT WORKS
We are able to launch several microsite options for our retail partners to choose from. The web pages can be customized by the customer and they offer our entire vast inventory of products for sale at prices and shipping rates that match or undercut the major competitive online retailers in the space.
Our technology regularly scans all competitors' web sites to collate, compile, and scrub current market pricing. This data then provides us price comparisons as well as lowest advertised market pricing that we can then match or underprice.
Site Hosting, Support, Online Management
We provide and manage our member online stores and mobile stores that enhance their web presence for no initial cost. This includes site general maintenance as needed, debugging and inventory updates of the Littlefish web pages. We have also created personalized/branded apps (Android or IOS) which offer our entire inventory products for sale.
Shipping and Fulfillment
We are able to drop ship orders across the United States for our member stores and leverage some of the best shipping rates available including free shipping propositions where applicable.
Provide Marketing Efforts
We will offer marketing service packages to find new customers for our retail partners. Our marketing program leverages our partners email lists, Facebook followers, and google analytic data to build relevant and focused audiences. We can also leverage these audiences to create similar audiences nationwide.
We are solely responsible to purchase, house, manage, pick, pack, and ship all inventory offered for sale on the Littlefish web pages.
Cash Flow and Financing
We are proud to announce our partnership with Lending USA has developed a proprietary credit approval system that can grant consumer credit within minutes of online application.
