Shop In A Box

A year has passed since Net1on1 triumphantly launched its eCommerce and website design service at the 2016 ETO Show with a hilarious, and award-winning game of Deal or No Dildo. Is it everything the wholesaler has hoped for and more?

Grabbing the adult industry by its horns and offering a comprehensive website building and eCommerce service, the award-winning wholesale company, Net1on1, introduced this new option, dubbed Shop in a Box, to its customers just over a year ago at the 2016 ETO Show. The service provides small retailers and new sole traders the opportunity to launch their own websites pre-loaded with Net1on1’s extensive catalogue, equipped with a smoothly working automated API and tailored to their personalized, customized brand image. Choosing from three different packages – basic to full works –, new businesses can find just the right solution for themselves with an appealing design template, accessible admin interface and ongoing, helpful customer support from the wholesaler.

A year on, and dozens of custom built websites later, Net1on1 shows no signs of slowing down as their new marketing offensive targets existing brick-and-mortar shops with the convenient and all-inclusive Shop-in-a-Box website service.

Tony Gonzales, Net1on1’s Managing Director has said:
We had a blast last year launching the Shop-in-a-Box service at the ETO Show, giving visitors a chance to win a custom-built website with our cheeky game of Deal or No Dildo really raised our profile and we even won the award for Best Stand – what a weekend! It was all very promising and success surely followed with website orders piling up in the next couple of months after the show. We are thrilled to give smaller business the chance to make their mark against the biggest players of the industry, and we are extremely proud of each website that we released to the wild so far, customer satisfaction is the name of the game after all!

We have learnt so much from the last year that we can now offer an even more improved and streamlined service. For example, we have created a comprehensive FAQ document for our customers who would have specific questions about hosting, payment gateways, the timescale of the project and so forth. Transparency and full disclosure is very important for people who invest their capital and trust in us, so we do everything possible to honor their expectations and confidence in our service.

We are especially interested to hear from brick-and-mortar shops who do not have an online presence yet, as this is an opportunity for them like no other. They already have an established customer base and brand name but with a fully stocked website they can reach even more people or refer timid visitors to their discreet online shop. They can carry their store’s branding over to their new site and capitalize on their existing brand recognition and customer loyalty. They can introduce new ranges and toys through their website without committing to large quantities of stock and add only bestselling lines to their store displays. It can be their shop in an online box – convenient, accessible, reliable, and ready to take their business to the next level.

Hi Res Images

Leading adult novelties wholesale company, Net1on1 has collated a Dropbox folder filled to the brim with beautiful high-resolution imagery for their entire catalogue to aid online sellers bringing their websites up to scratch.

For years, web-resolution images were more than sufficient for online trading, but with modern devices offering higher and higher pixel counts, the demand for crystal clear high-resolution images has increased exponentially. With consumers expecting to be able to see every nook and cranny of the products they wish to purchase, images that show items in their best light became sought after by online retailers who are trying to keep with the times.

Since we’ve removed the 10% dropshipping fee we have seen our dropship sales increase and we are now supplying more online shops and marketplace sellers than ever before – says Sebastian Gonzalez, Sales Manager at Net1on1. We are also having great success with our Shop in a Box programme that provides start-ups with a fully loaded e-commerce adult website with a personal, customised aesthetic, PayPal integration and API automation. Furthermore, the Shop in a Box solutions are also popular with brick and mortar shops trying to establish an online presence – some of these shops have been trading for decades and we give them the chance to take advantage of the internet and the discreet shopping experience it allows for some of their existing customers.

As suppliers of such a big and varied customer base, we feel that it is our responsibility to give everyone the best chance to succeed and that starts with offering a wealth of easily accessible resources. We’ve been adding more banners, videos and logos to our downloadable resources on our website and we’ve been trying to tailor our blog posts to fit customers’ modern needs and interests. But the one thing that our customers have kept asking for were high resolution images, so we have collated a Dropbox folder where the product pictures are ordered by brand making it extremely easy and straightforward to find exactly the image they need. We are also planning to add these high-res images to the product pages so in time, our customers will be able to download them right from our website.

We pride ourselves in our customer service and always try to go the extra mile to make sure our customers’ feedback are properly listened to and followed up on – concluded Gonzalez. And in that spirit, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions, concerns, feedback, comments or needs in regard to our website, products and services, we would love to hear your thoughts!

Net1on1’s high-resolution product images can be accessed by logging into your trade account Dashboard, clicking Download from the left-hand side menu and following the “Hi Res Image Download” link to Dropbox.

Free Websites For Shops

Recognising how the adult market is evolving in the UK, leading adult product distributor, Net1on1 Wholesale starts unique initiative to bring more physical stores – some with decades of trading history – to the online world.

We’ve all been there – you spot a shop that looks right up your alley but you don’t have the time to go in or you would simply prefer to browse the store’s selection from the comfort of your sofa. So, you head home, excitedly type in the shop’s name into Google but find that they don’t have a website.

For many customers, the journey ends here as they will find other ways to acquire the items they were after. And unfortunately, all of this is even more likely to happen to adult stores where more timid customers may be too afraid or shy to enter the premises.

Net1on1 Wholesale, the UK’s leading adult product supplier would very much like to disrupt this narrative that may lose dozens of UK adult shops numerous customers and sales every day. So, from as little as £300 (+VAT) spent on stock with the wholesaler across six orders, physical stores can now get a WooCommerce website for free.

During our sales trips up and down the country, we’ve been noticing that many brick-and-mortar shops don’t have websites or are in serious need of an online upgrade – said Sebastian Gonzalez, Net1on1’s Sales Manager. Many of these stores have been around for decades, they have a loyal local customer base who return again and again for the personable customer service and discretion. In our eyes, these kinds of shops form the foundation of any country’s adult industry, they’ve been trading way before the internet and eCommerce took over. 

In our effort to support these stores, we wanted to come up with a service that offers an accessible and hassle-free option to shop-owners to create an online presence and start reaping the benefits that eCommerce has to offer.

This latest initiative from Net1on1 builds on the already widely successful Shop in a Box service that offers customised, fully stocked and automated website packages to start-up companies and entrepreneurs at an affordable price. Using WooCommerce as the platform to build dozens of websites, the wholesaler says that the Shop in a Box service is optimised for ease of use and overall convenience so new business owners can focus on marketing, SEO, social media and customer service without having to worry about stock, logistics and the massive initial investment that usually comes with building a website from scratch.

We’ve been doing the Shop in a Box service for a couple of years now and have helped dozens of new business owners get started in online selling – explained Gonzalez. All websites come with an API-client that keeps stock levels automatically updated, and pulls through any new orders into our system, so all they need to do is keep an eye on the payments and build their online community, if they wish to do so. The website works with our dropship service so we would send all orders directly to the customer with a packing slip that would have the store’s logo and information on it.

This system could work wonders for brick-and-mortar store owners who may have steered clear of online selling because they didn’t feel confident enough in their IT skills or were afraid that running the website next to their store would require too much time and effort. With our newest offer, we can set them up with a well-functioning, easy to use website, all they have to do in return is spend a minimum of £1500 (+VAT) on stock with us. Basically, they can stock their shelves to the brim from our outstanding product catalogue and within 2-3 weeks they’ll receive an eCommerce site that will generate further profit and exposure for them.

Of course, we realise that spending £1500 in one go is not in everyone’s ballpark, so we created various payment plans where shops can, instead, place a series of smaller orders to qualify. This means that, for example, they can place six orders for £300 (+VAT) each and once they reach £1800, we’ll start working on their site.

We really hope this service will appeal to store-owners as we would love to work with as many of them as possible – concluded Sebastian Gonzalez. They only need to bring their custom to the table, while we offer our friendly customer service, our unique and well-priced product catalogue and our convenient eCommerce solution to them. So, please don’t hesitate, give us a call or drop us a message, we would love to help you lay the next building block of your business empire!
