Sell more, do less with an online school shop and +Pay

Pens, pencils, uniform and backpacks; items that support student learning and strengthen your school brand. All of these items are available to buy from your school shop, but do you sell as much as you would like? 

With +Pay, you can make all of your shop items available with a custom online school shop. Parents can browse items at their own convenience, from the comfort of home, and place orders with just a few clicks. 

How an online school shop works

When an order is processed, school teams are automatically alerted, enabling them to fulfil the order at the next opportunity. The handy reporting suite makes managing orders and stock levels quick and easy; fulfilment tracking provides a complete electronic trail for easier record keeping. 

The flexible platform enables users to import shop items, assign size and colours options and set stock quantities to limit the number of orders allowed for particular items; no more time-consuming paperwork or clunky cash payments! 

 

In the wake of COVID-19, germ-ridden coins and bank notes are particularly concerning when it comes to hygiene and the safety of staff and students. +Pay supports schools to go completely cashless, in all areas, from lunch money and event payments, to trips and your school shop.  

Our free mobile app and desktop portal facilitate speedy and convenient payments by credit and debit card, PayPal or PayPoint. Free low balance reminders and flexible payment windows (set by your administrative team) are proven to reduce dinner money debt and arrears, whilst improving processes for staff and families.  

Introduce your own online school shop in advance of summer and make it easy for parents to order all the items students need for the school year ahead. 

We’re ready to support your school on the journey to a streamlined, cashless culture. Get in touch today to find out more or book a free demonstration.
