A tailored e-commerce solution to suit our members’ independent retail operations, achieved in close collaboration with various Point of Sale Vendors.
It is important to us that while we all work collectively as a co-operative, each of our members has the ability to function autonomously and embrace what makes them an independent, therefore working on initiatives that allow our members to adapt their own retail experience.
The ILG e-commerce solution offers members a platform to present their local communities and beyond, a user-friendly online shopping experience anytime and anywhere, increase customer reach and support their own brick & mortar set up. It includes the click & collect and home delivery options, as well as, a rewards program for recognising loyalty and patronage. Furthermore, is the ongoing marketing support through brand awareness and presence in various social media platforms.
The ILG E-Commerce solution is the most recent addition to the numerous benefits gained from being part of Australia’s largest liquor co-operative; a unique structure often copied but never equalled.
Our co-operative structure allows for the return of all surpluses to members in various ways including the subsidising of wholesale prices.
