Whenever you make a sale, you give or email your customer a receipt. Even though receipts have higher open rates than promotional emails and already have the attention of your customers, sales receipts are one of the commonly overlooked marketing opportunities.
Use your ACE Point of Sale system to customize your email or tape receipts to stay connected with your customers and win additional sales by:
~ Promoting your online store, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter pages
~ Offer a discount code to encourage repeat customers
~ Promote seasonal marketing programs
~ Offer time-limited coupons to drive traffic during low season
~ Upsell or cross-sell profitable products in your store
~ Add barcodes for easier returns or exchanges
~ Direct customers to online surveys for valuable feedback and more!
See below to learn how to add coupons or customize your ACE tape receipts. For more instructions, active support plan members can visit the ACE Online Knowledge Portal or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
