Why take your Nutra and supplements online?

Why should you start selling supplements online?

If Covid-19 has taught us anything it’s that businesses need to be able to adapt quickly if they wish to survive.  Over the last 12 months or so, consumers have discovered new ways to spend their money – from reducing their cash transactions in-store, to spending more money online.

Whilst concerns remain around transmission rates and the efficacy of vaccines, it’s unlikely that we’re going to see a mass return to physical footfall any time soon.  This means that eCommerce remains the best way for the vast majority of business to ensure their longevity, and perhaps even expand.

This is especially true within the nutra and health industry.  With the general public becoming more concerned with their general wellbeing, and far more knowledgeable about the supplements they should be taking to ensure their overall health, now is the time to establish your own presence within the online market.

We live in a society where information is available at our fingertips, as is the ability to instantly purchase what it is we’re seeking.  If we can buy it online and have it delivered within a couple of days, there really is very little point in going out of our way to purchase the same items in-store.  Certainly not if that in-store experience brings with it an increased risk as far as Covid might be concerned.

This is precisely why herbal and health stores should be putting all their products online.

How ePay247 can help

Setting up a website is no longer the technical minefield that it once was.  Yes, it might be easier to hire someone to produce a site for you, but it is possible to create something from the comfort of your dining table, using some pre-existing templates and a bit of creativity.

Consumers generally are not too concerned about an all-signing, all-dancing site from which to purchase – but they do want to have confidence that the product they are buying is high quality, and that their transaction is secure.

We can’t help you with the product descriptions or photography, but we can make sure that you have nothing to worry about when it comes to the financial elements of trading online.

With ePay247 we offer a variety of different services, designed to suit the needs of every business, regardless of their size or industry.


Our payment gateway solutions will ensure that your customers have a safe, secure and trusted method by which to make their online payments.  Information is encrypted, thus ensuring against hacks and leaks, whilst also providing them with the opportunity to make payment in the most convenient way for them.

As a merchant, you will also benefit from technical support should you require it, as well as faster processing times, which means you will be able to get your money in less time, thus helping with cash flow.

Finally, as a progressive company, we understand the benefits of new medicines, including CBD oil – which means we won’t ban such transactions under contravention of the Acceptable Use Policy, which we know has happened to many other providers.
