New York, NY, April 25, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- Hodi, a leading provider of same-day delivery software for brands and retailers, announced today its official launch on the Shopify App store
. Merchants can now install the app for free and launch a same-day delivery offering in minutes. While existing solutions in the market focus strictly on the logistics of same-day delivery, Hodi’s core offering was built around surfacing available inventory to increase demand and ecommerce conversions.
“Merchants utilizing Shopify’s ecommerce platform have been asking for a more streamlined on-boarding process for a few months now. Today, I’m happy to report that Shopify merchants can now utilize Hodi’s self-service platform to launch a same-day delivery offering all on their own,” stated Matt Bahr, co-founder and CEO of Hodi (https://hodi.today). He continued, “A turn-key Shopify integration is a great addition to our platform and the timing couldn’t be more perfect, as UberRUSH announced their upcoming shutdown
in June 2018. As Amazon continues to further increase consumer expectations for same-day delivery, merchants, big and small, are going to need solutions that not only enable them to execute same-day delivery, but also increase their site traffic and demand for such an option. We’re excited to be that solution.”
Bahr, previously an early employee at audio brand Master & Dynamic, launched Hodi after experiencing the struggles of scaling a same-day delivery offering first-hand. “Many merchants think that after adding a ‘Same-Day Delivery’ shipping option to their checkout their conversion rates are going to sky-rocket, and that’s just not true. Until consumers have the ability to search and find products available for same-day delivery, merchants aren’t going to see a crazy increase in sales. We’re here to change that.”
Today, Hodi is working with brands and retailers in NYC but is slated to expand nationwide at the end of this quarter. Hodi has already begun development of their open API that would allow any merchant, regardless of their ecommerce platform, to tap into Hodi’s suite of tools and scale their same-day delivery offering.
Hodi’s Deliver product, which provides merchants turn-key access to multiple courier networks, is free to install. Merchants only have to pay the cost of the delivery–which ranges from $8 to $25 in NYC, depending on distance. Merchants looking to increase conversion rates and surface their inventory available for same-day delivery will need Hodi’s premium product, Convert, which starts at $299 per month.
