With bars ands restaurants and other supply services being forced to close for at least 14 days with the high possibility of it extending a lot longer, panic is setting in as cash flow for many will become an issue, all businesses whatever size rely on cash flow, BA being just one example as flights start to cease.
Traders though have been using their initiative to think about how to keep the till ringing and have been contacting the largest expat newspaper in Spain the Euro Weekly News for support and advice as the business is the heart of the community.
With talks going on with traders late into the night with our online experts, traders have decided the way forward is online trading and home delivery service across the coasts.
Due to our webmasters and technical teams experience in these fields they can have a fully operational online platform up and running within 4 hours, displaying full menus and taking orders and payments online, staying within the governments guidelines of non cash handling and the allowance of home delivery as long as its left at the door step.
Online global trader Steve Day we called upon for advice and he told us: ” The way to trade is online, it can save your business not only that it can grow your business, this epidemic may seem frightening but by trading online you can continue to trade and bring the all important funds into your business, this lock down I feel will go on for at least 30 days in my personal opinion and so businesses need to take action now, you can be online within hours taking money”
Steve trades the world on many spectrums online and is currently in Spain and on hand to assist both traders and us the Euro Weekly News in assisting local businesses.
Steve who went onto say ” if you have your menu ready and your pricing and you have transport to deliver I can have you online in a couple of hours like my websites
Just an example of many, and I can have your business operating within hours during lockdown, you are allowed to go to workplaces which is your kitchen, you are allowed to make deliveries, I wouldn’t advise any business to sit still, I can have customers placing orders with you within hours, customers will be bored sat at home, they will want your favourite dishes and you can keep your tills ringing”
” It will cost less than a day’s takings to get you set up and whilst I’m stuck in Spain I’m proud to assist expat businesses and the heart of the community expat newspaper”
Mr Day has agreed to assist the Euro Weekly News web team in assisting it’s clients and supporting them through these times which don’t need to be bleak supported by the EWN.
