News / Preston e-commerce firm offers free service to help struggling local businesses sell online

A Preston-based e-commerce company has created a new free service to help struggling businesses without an online presence to survive the coronavirus pandemic.

EKM, which is based in Fulwood, has created Obodo to help local community businesses who primarily serve a customer base within 15 miles of their brick and mortar shop.

Through Obodo, these businesses can build a website with an online shop for free, so they can still reach their customers in lockdown.

The service will allow business owners to upload products, take secure payments, and provide delivery and click and collect services for customers in their local area. A range of themes are available for specific industries such as bakeries, butchers and greengrocers.

For more information about Obodo visit their website, which also features a whole host of useful blogs about how to boost your online presence.
