Start a 100% automated online shop with Esquire through their exciting virtual reseller network (VRN) that the company say is a world’s first and will turn the traditional reseller model on its head.

As a virtual reseller network partner, you have access to the entire Esquire stock holding, which is updated directly to the reseller’s Web site at regular intervals – often as frequently as every three minutes.

Their software solution is run through an exclusive agreement by e-commerce specialist ImproWEB. It takes Esquire’s stock holding and replicates it on the websites of participating resellers, thus giving them virtual access to the entire stock range. When an end-user places an order with a reseller, the purchase request is seamlessly routed to their back-office system, which then automatically informs the courier company – which then fetches the items from the warehouse closes to the customer and dispatches it directly.

The beauty about this software solution is that its in-built intelligence allows it to detect the location of the end-user. If the end-user is in Cape Town, the courier company will, for instance, fetch the stock from Esquire’s Cape Town branch and deliver it directly to the end-user in that region – hence saving a substantial amount of money in courier costs. The software, in other words, will automatically choose the shortest delivery route.

Thanks to this software, resellers don’t have to hold any of their own stock. When Esquire buys in new products, the system is automatically updated and the participating reseller’s websites are also updated with the additional products. Each reseller, however, retains complete autonomy and is allowed to set his own pricing on products, and even change and add additional descriptions and product pictures, if desired.

Your startup cost is R5500 and it includes hosting for your website.
