The COVID-19… For sure, this novel coronavirus outbreak is a terrible human tragedy, affecting hundreds of thousands of people across the globe.
Hopefully, all measures taken will stem the impact of the virus, but, unfortunately, it appears the impact may be significant and take some time to play out and get under control.
It is shaking up business and consumer behavior on a massive scale. The impact on the economy and business cycle of this black swan event is still uncertain and unclear. We all hope that those challenges are short term.
But businesses, of course, need to plan for many different scenarios in times like these.
To support businesses in these trying times cross-platform initiative Offline2on.com was launched, it connects merchants with the platforms, developers, different resources, and partners they need to take action.
We also decided to be useful and tried to collect all the partner promotions, special offers, discounts related to eCommerce to keep you running – no matter what you need.
We hope you will find them useful for your business! We’ll get through this together!!!
