Every merchant that registers on Bolwala is required to provide a certain percentage of discount. The minimum discount a merchant can offer is 10%. The higher your discount is, the more sales you are expected to make!
When merchants register on BOlwala, they are required to give a certain percentage of their total sales via Bolwala as commission. The higher the commission, the higher the merchant will rank in featured discounts.
Merchants can provide discounts to customers via the following two methods:
Method 1: Through Merchant Account Area
The customer pays a visit to the merchant and after shopping or utilizing the services, he / she provides her unique PIN Code to the merchant.
The Merchant enters the pin code in the Customer Discount Area to validate / verify the customer credentials.
Once the customer details are successfully validated, the merchant then selects the type of discount he is authorized to offer and provides the discounted bill to the customer.
Method 2: Through Customer’s Mobile Phone
The customer visits the merchant and after shopping or utilizing the services, enters the total bill onto his / her cell phone equipped with the BOLWALA discount interface.
Once done, the customer hands over his / her device to the customer who validates it by entering his unique Pin Code.
Upon successfully entering the details, the merchant provides the customer with the discounted price, thus closing the deal.
After signing up with Bolwala, every merchant gets an account area.
The account area has a ‘Post Sales’ page.
The Post Sales page allows the merchant to enter the total bill with the discount percentage already being displayed as agreed by the merchant when signing up.
Merchant enters total bill of the customer and the discounted bill is automatically calculated.
For enhanced management, Bolwala allows every merchant to have as many cashier accounts they want. Here’s how to create cashier accounts:
Go to Post Sales page.
Click on ‘Create a Cashier’ link.
Enter email address and name of the cashier.
Cashier will receive an email with a link to the account area.
That’s it! Cashier can now start posting sales on your behalf.
