How will a pharmacy website designed by The Social Pharmacist improve your business?

Our pharmacy websites allow you to enhance the customer service experience for your existing retail customers but also attract new local customers who value the speed of booking services or ordering prescriptions online.

Your customers will be able to order prescriptions, schedule appointments for services like vaccinations and buy products on your new e-Commerce pharmacy website to beat the queues in-store. 

The pandemic has dramatically accelerated the shift in consumer behaviour to online shopping and customer experiences.

If your pharmacy does not have a modern pharmacy website you will be losing sales and customers to more forward-thinking pharmacies who provide this experience to their customers.

You don’t need to dominate the pharmacy e-Commerce landscape. But you do need a professionally designed pharmacy website to futureproof your retail pharmacy business.

Our websites allow you to start your journey into e-Commerce without massive investment or running costs, or not at all if you prefer.

You could start with “Click & Collect” functionality which removes a lot of the hassle of selling online like packaging, shipping, payment gateways, dealing with returns & registering with the PSI for internet supply. 

An even bigger advantage with “Click & Collect” is that you retain the personal interaction with your local customers that should be at the heart of every independent community pharmacy business.

professionally designed e-Commerce website doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg either!

You do not need to spend colossal figures to launch a modern, professional e-Commerce pharmacy website.

The majority of independent pharmacies do not need an enterprise-level eCommerce website. These enterprise-level websites come with a hefty price tag starting at around €15,000 not including considerable running costs & license fees.

If you are planning to dominate the e-Commerce pharmacy market in Ireland and internationally then yes, you will need to spend this kind of money on website development.

But you should also be prepared to spend even more on advertising & personnel once your website has launched to compete with the large pharmacy chains & groups.

So what’s the alternative?

We can help you create a modern pharmacy website that becomes the hub of your online brand, futureproofs your existing retail pharmacy business & allows you to create new revenue streams without the huge costs.

Your customers will have a seamless online experience that allows them to order prescriptions, book services and shop online.

Best of all, it won’t cost you an arm and a leg either!

Our basic pharmacy website package costs €3,000 and our premium package costs €5,000 excluding VAT. You might also be eligible for grant funding that will reduce your costs by 50%.

The Time to Start is Now.

The community pharmacy market is changing dramatically and the global pandemic has accelerated the need for you to futureproof your pharmacy

Independent retail pharmacies are under increasing pressure from the growth of chains, the emergence of a range of discount retailers & huge investment by online pharmacies. A vital step you must take to ensure your independent pharmacy business survives and thrives in this new normal is to launch a e-Commerce pharmacy website.

These market forces have piled more pressure on independent retail pharmacies who continue to face the ongoing challenges of increasing costs, FEMPI measures and a lack of Government support. 

And as if those challenges weren’t enough, the largest global pandemic in over 100 years has led to lockdowns, travel bans and a radical change in consumer behaviour away from retail stores like pharmacies.

The most important step you can take to overcome these challenges is to create a modern e-Commerce pharmacy website that will become the hub of your online brand, enhance the excellent service you already provide to your customers and attract new customers to your pharmacy business from locally, nationally and internationally.
