The Shopatron Order Exchange allows manufacturers to pass online orders to their retail channel for local in-store pickup and ship-from store fulfillment, giving partners a share of their eCommerce sales. Retailers increase their spend with brands who embrace Shopatron’s eCommerce model, because fulfilling online orders expands their sales and drives qualified traffic into their stores.

Shopatron’s distributed order management model allows multi-channel retailers to fulfill online orders from any store, distribution center, or vendor location, dramatically improving inventory efficiency and making it easy to deploy advanced fulfillment models like in-store pickup and ship-from-store. By delivering online orders through in-store pickup, multi-channel retailers that use Shopatron drive motivated shoppers into local retail stores, where they make additional purchases.
