What is Storesquare?

KBC, Unizo and Roularta have joined forces and created a digital marketplace for Belgian businesses. Storesquare offers local retailers and SMEs in any sector an easy, affordable, all-in solution for doing e-commerce.

Setting up an online store of your own can be a long, drawn-out affair. To avoid this stress and hassle, Storesquare provides you with an online platform that brings all the local retailers and SMEs together under one roof. Storesquare also takes care of your online store's design, technology, payment facilities, distribution, logistics and marketing. All you need to do is display your products and services online, and you’re ready to roll! 

The omni-channel business model

Consumers increasingly go to shopping or product websites or use social media to check out goods before going and buying them at a bricks-and-mortar store. And more of them are doing it the other way around, inspecting goods in the high street and then ordering them over the Internet. Today's customers are unpredictable in choosing where and when they'll make their purchases.

If your business uses various sales channels to sell its products and services, we say you follow the 'omni-channel business model.' The growth of e-commerce means that this approach will reap benefits. Which is why, on 1 September, KBC is launching a new campaign called 'Omni-channel: the new norm.' Storesquare is just one of the solutions that KBC offers to make the omni-channel shopping experience easier and more attractive for retailers and consumers alike. 

Hassle-free e-commerce

Storesquare means you don't have heavy investment outlays, marketing efforts or all kinds of legal and logistical aspects to grapple with. All you need to do is put your products and services up on display and Storesquare will do the rest.
