Ecommerce for Garden Centres

garden centre

Although many of your consumers prefer to visit you in person, a new generation of customers used to the convenience and simplicity of online shopping, mean your business has to adapt. As these online sales become more prominent the days of a local catchment area are over, competition is now nationwide and an even greater threat. However, with the right functionality you can use your online presence to drive more footfall to your physical stores, increase your online growth and outgrow your competition.

Click & Collect/Reserve

Your stores are a huge asset, so offering Click & Collect and/or Click & Reserve is great for driving footfall. Customers picking up items are also known to buy additional products during collection. Using tradeit,you can also manage the movement stock between stores or from a central location to fulfil these orders.

Store Stock Checker

Save customers a wasted trip, or expedite their visit, by enabling them to check live stock of any item at any of your stores (tradeit includes an optional built in stock buffer on any product to avoid disappointment).

Endless Aisle

Stop losing sales by arming your in-store staff with tradeit's endless aisle functionality on any tablet device. This enables staff to check stock and place online orders for customers of items that you don't currently have in stock, but which are available at other stores or held at a central location.

Fulfil from anywhere

The vast scope of different products means fulfilment can often be an issue for garden centres. tradeit allows you to combine multiple delivery types such as local, national, international, collection or drop shipping direct from suppliers, all from a single order.

Gift/e-Gift Cards

Enable customers to buy gift cards online, specify the value, manage their balances online and redeem them across both your website and in stores. Gift/e-gift cards can also be sent to other people physically or via email.


Create events and collect attendee information for those events at the checkout, aiding you to drive online users to in-store activities such as expert talks, seasonal events, sales demonstrations or social gatherings.

Customisable Products

Sell customisable products in unique lengths, weights, sizes or dimensions with dynamic pricing calculated on your website. This means customers can get tailor-made products with an instant price to buy and can check out online.

Loyalty Scheme

Build your customer base and encourage customers to keep coming back to you by implementing a loyalty scheme with tradeit's built-in options or through integration with a 3rd party tool like Givex.


We help merge your ERP, EPoS, CRM, or other business systems with ecommerce for operational efficiency.

We've integrated numerous business systems to provide merchants with a joined up view of their customers, the automation of business processes and to reduce operational resources. tradeit can be integrated with a wide variety of 3rd party and in-house software systems without compromising agility.
