Cash Crusaders launches a new Whatsapp service
Cash Crusaders announced that it has launched a WhatsApp service that will be used as an additional communication channel, to conduct new and used good sales, as well as negotiate the buying or pawning of an item with a customer before they even enter the store.
“We’ve used the past few months as an opportunity to interrogate the processes we follow as a business and to challenge ourselves on ways we can do business differently by embracing tech that will continue to deliver the Cash Crusaders experience, virtually,” said Sean Stegmann, CEO of Cash Crusaders in a statement.
How the WhatsApp service works:
Buying - customers who want to buy a product they see online can now contact their store via WhatsApp (chat, call or video call). An in-store expert will demo the product if needed and if the customer is happy, they can complete the transaction quickly and efficiently when visiting the store.
Selling or pawning - WhatsApp allows the customer to show his/her product to the store buyer, who is skilled across a multitude of industries, to get the best possible purchase/loan price on that item. If the item passes the in-store testing when the customer visits the store, Cash Crusaders will complete the transaction there and then.
The WhatsApp service can also be used for selling and collecting of items from home. Customers who would like to make cash from their cleanout on items like laptops, cell phones, appliances or even furniture, will get an appropriate offer from the store.
If the offer is accepted by the customer, the store will collect the item from the customer’s home. (Stores that are able to purchase furniture are size-dependent.)
For customers to get in touch with their local store, they will need to log onto the Cash Crusader’s Store Locator, find their closest store, click on the ‘Talk to us on WhatsApp’ link.
