The outflow of store visitors also has a direct effect on the brands, which logically sell less. We do everything we can to help them where we can.
With an expected increasing number of store visitors in the short term, it is important that retail staff remain protected against the corona virus. That is why Orderchamp has been able to obtain 3,000 mouthpieces, which can be distributed among our retailers. Fulfilment partner Montapacking works together with Orderchamp on this initiative and takes care of the shipment.
Every retailer with a physical shop affiliated with Orderchamp will be given the choice to receive 2 free mouthpieces when ordering above €200,- in the checkout.

We are discussing with some of our brands how we can facilitate the sourcing of 'trendy mouth masks' to our retailers so that they can resell them to consumers. In this way we optimise the logistics chain and together we contribute to better protection of society. We will try to control the supply of these mouth masks as much as possible in order to create a 'fair' and safe assortment (fair price, correct safety regulations), but we also ask for the cooperation of the entire community.
Due to the fact that wearing mouthpieces is mandatory or recommended by local authorities in several countries, we expect a growing demand among our users. Do you have any ideas or suggestions? Then take Contact with us. We'll keep you posted.
