Business people around the globe are becoming increasingly stressed with the exponential rise in COVID-19 cases.

Instead of panicking around, consider all the possibilities that can help drive sales, whether you’re operating in-store or online. Below, we’ll share some immediate steps that retailers can take to mitigate cash flow constraints, respond to declines in revenue, and redeploy digital marketing spend.

Go with the flow and start accepting digital payments with RepairDesk’s option to get paid online. Email your customer with the invoice having a “Pay Now” button on it. Learn more about this feature below:
