Get your business bazaar-ready this Ramadhan season!

Ramadhan is just a couple of days away. You know the drill: Ramadhan bazaars!

Ramadhan is a month-long season where Muslims fast every day from dawn to sunset. It is identified as a time of spiritual discipline and deep contemplation of one’s religion, extra prayer, and increased charity and generosity.

Religious practice aside, many countries with large Muslim populations would carry out night bazaars, offering a variety of food, drinks, and other items. These bazaars, popularly held in Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia and Singapore, attract Muslims looking to berbuka puasa (break fast) after a long day. This aside, bazaars are a go-to place for foodies to jalan-jalan cari makan (walk around to find food), meet up with friends and families, as well as enjoy entertainment such as live music or traditional performances.

Ramadhan bazaars are one of the best avenues for local businesses to grow their sales. If you are a home business owner, this is an opportune time to gain organic foot traffic and convert them into loyal, paying customers. Whereas, if you run an established business, why not expand into these bazaars to gain more traction too?

While getting all geared up prepping for your bestselling items, setting up for smooth and quick customer service matters too. A smart POS solution like Qashier’s would definitely help, as they certainly have for our Qashier merchants who participate in bazaars.

Meet Alfian Nassier from Annani’s Wardrobe and Liyana Omar from Ataraxia Malaysia. Both of them are batik-passionates, aspiring to incorporate batik as everyday wear through their unique designs.

For Alfian, his creativity in styling various batik clothing has inspired him to start up Annani’s Wardrobe. Among his batik line, what captured the crowd’s attention is his Arissa, a knotted blouse. Along with his line of vibrant batik collections, there are also batik accessories such as the hair tie and purses to match your ootd with.

Whereas for Liyana, what drove her to start up Ataraxia Malaysia is her passion for batik since young as a child. Co-founding this business with her husband, they started with a men’s line. Today, Ataraxia Malaysia has a full line of limited edition batik clothing and accessories such as earrings and bracelets for women and children as well.

When asked what makes them choose to run a pop-up stall at bazaars rather than settling down for a brick-and-mortar store, there’s one thing in common: it’s the act of reaching out to a wider demographic of customers! 

Here are some highlights about their favourite features and their experiences running their stall with Qashier: 

1. Quick, on-the-go payments

“With cashless, cash, and DuitNow acceptance, it’s easy! Plus, it comes with a receipt printer, which is the most important feature to me. With our receipts, we can print our IG and phone number, so that my customers can contact me anytime.” – Alfian Nassier, founder of Annani’s Wardrobe.

Payments play a big part in Alfian’s day-to-day operation and having the QashierX1 terminal has helped him to seamlessly handle payments and have all sales consolidated in one powerful dashboard.

With bazaars expecting to receive high volumes of foot traffic, Qashier terminals such as the Qashier X1 or QashierXS are an efficient way to get the queue moving. As an all-in-one POS + payments solution, you can not only accept mobile payments but manage other parts of your business (which we will come to that later!).

Moreover, with e-wallets or DuitNow QR being one of the popular payment choices among Malaysians, we recommend the QashierX1 which comes with a customer-facing screen which allows you to display your business QR code for customers to scan. 

Whereas, if your customer prefers to pay using credit/ debit cards as well, the QashierXS terminal is your go-to choice.

2. Seamless, real-time updates for inventory management 

“I would say that my favourite part about using Qashier is its inventory feature because I do all the back office work. The reports are quite detailed and I couldn’t be thankful enough. It shortens my part of extracting all the details – from the best category of sales to the lowest. At least from there, we can work things out.” – Liyana Omar, co-founder of Ataraxia Malaysia  

As a business owner, understanding how your sales are performing is important to Liyana. Qashier’s inventory management feature has eased her headache in identifying how her items are selling and planning out her next sales strategy.

In addition, you can also get notified when your inventory is running low. This is because, for every sale of an item, Qashier’s system would update your inventory count.

You can also get real-time updates as Qashier’s solutions are powered by a cloud-based technology. Access your dashboard anytime, anywhere and get to know your sales performance and what needs to be stocked in your inventory.

These aside, Qashier’s solutions offer so much more! Factoring all areas of customer interactions, your business can also make full use of Qashier’s CRM (customer relationship management) feature, which brings us to the next point:

3. Enhance customers’ experience with promotions

Creating special promotions or bundle deals such as “buy one, get one free” or “10% off when you purchase two items.” would definitely turn heads and capture crowd attention. 

Now that you have successfully attracted paying customers, it’s important to ensure they are paying the correct amount. Qashier’s POS solutions are integrated with a CRM feature that allows you to easily create and manage these promotions. That way, the final amount will be automatically calculated when you do a checkout.
