Get a Headstart on your Holiday Stores!
BrightStores is a year round powerhouse! And with the busy Holiday season approaching, this is the best time to open a personalized Seasonal Store for your client and their employees.There are always benefits to getting a head start on your Client’s holiday and seasonal orders. Some of these benefits revolve around beating the rush, gaining an edge on competition, and avoiding last-minute mayhem. And it’s never too early! The Holidays are right around the corner, and will sneak up before you know it. So let’s explore some ways that Company Stores and Simple Stores can help you this year!
Simple Stores for Holiday Gifting
Simple Stores have many uses – Fundraising, School Spirit Shops, Uniform Stores, and so much more. However, one of the best uses for our Bright Orders platform is Holiday Shops and Seasonal Stores. With a single page storefront and easy personalization features, you can ensure your Client’s store is branded accordingly. You can also add a Countdown Clock so that shoppers know when the order deadline is to order their Holiday gifts! Distributors and End User Clients will also enjoy the built in Email Marketing Feature, to send email blasts to shoppers who are eager to take advantage of all the Store has to offer. With a myriad of checkout options from the traditional credit or debit card to the new PayPal integration that includes Cryptocurrency and pay later options, users will enjoy their experience from start to finish! In addition to these incredible features, there are a few more exciting capabilities we’ve added more recently! The first of these includes FREE User Accounts. So can you really have as many User Accounts as you want? That’s right, no more sharing your account login information with your coworkers. You can now have multiple Sales Reps on the same account! This feature is ideal for Sales Reps who need more independence, Free User Accounts enable them to manage Stores how they see fit and streamline their organization. The next feature we want to tell you more about is Live Supplier Inventory. By connecting specific items or all of the items in your Online Stores to our Supplier database, inventory will automatically be tracked in real-time based on what our Suppliers have on hand. Pulling Inventory Counts directly from participating Suppliers enables you to display this on the Storefront to your Shoppers.

Redemption Stores for Holiday Gifting
What are Redemption Stores? They’re very similar to Simple Stores, except the Shopper must enter a code to enter the Store, and they will not be available to the public. One feature we are eager to tell you about is Kitting. Redemption Store Kits includes combining multiple items from various categories in your Redemption Store to create one very exciting Kit. For example, you can have your shoppers choose one item from various categories such as the accessories, shirts, and outerwear section. The three items chosen from each category combined would be considered their Kit. This is a great way to keep things interesting, instead of giving your Shoppers all the same exact items. During the Holiday Season, this type of Store can come in handy by giving Shoppers many options to choose from for their annual gift. While we are focusing on how perfect this capability is for Holiday gifting, they are also ideal for work anniversaries, new hire packages, incentive gifts, and so much more. Whatever the occasion may be, BrightStores has you covered with the ability to create individualized redemption codes. And Simple Stores and Redemption Stores are so unbelievably easy to launch that you can even set up and launch one yourself!
Company Stores for Holiday Gifting
To ensure discretion within your gifting programs, take advantage of our Points Company Store! Points Stores are a part of the Company Store platform you already know and love. The big difference is that rather than being shown in a currency amount, products are shown in a points value. This is an especially great option for your clients who wish to reward their employees through a predetermined points system in order to keep track of spending limits during the Holidays. There are many reasons a client may not want to display the actual price of an item in their stores, and in Bright Sites we make it a possibility. Your employees deserve acknowledgement for all their hard work, and to control spending limits and gift employees with a particular allowance, Points Stores are a superior choice. For example, you may have multiple employees who have been with the company for a long time who you want to award with a more valuable gift. Or perhaps an employee went above and beyond their sales quota for the year and you want to recognize that during the Holidays! Whatever the situation may be, Store Administrators have the autonomy to properly thank each and every one of their shoppers depending on their position within the organization. Points Stores are great incentives for loyal employees who you want to give thanks to during this important time of the year.
