Making the Most of LeafLink's Marketplace for Your Cannabis DispensaryGuides • October 26, 2020
An overview of LeafLink tools for cannabis retailers.
How does LeafLink benefit cannabis retailers? LeafLink helps purchasing managers save up to 8 hours per week by centralizing vendor communication and order information through the e-commerce marketplace.
Here are a few tips to make sure your retail business gets the most out of LeafLink.
1. Make Ordering Easy
Ordering inventory to restock your dispensary has never been so easy!
With LeafLink’s streamlined e-commerce marketplace, retailers can shop all their brands in a single cart. In just a few clicks, cannabis dispensaries can restock their shelves and rest assured that they are seeing the most up-to-date product menus from any brand they buy.
Retailers can also use LeafLink to track order statuses, see updated brand menus, order for multiple stores at a time, plus take advantage of deals periods.
2. Discover New Brands and Products
LeafLink has made product discovery simple for cannabis dispensaries.
When ordering through the marketplace, retailers can choose either the Shop Products or Shop Brands experience. They can then browse by product, brand, and/or use advanced filters to narrow down their search. LeafLink filters include price range, THC percentage, category/subcategory, and more.
Retailers can also sort by Elite and Power Sellers - cannabis brands verified by LeafLink to frequently update their menu, respond to buyer questions in a timely manner, and process orders efficiently (less than 24 hours). Find more info on Elite and Power Sellers here.
3. Simplify Communications with Brands
LeafLink offers cannabis retailers the ability to ask brands about new products or check in on outstanding orders through direct messaging. Have a question about a product? Want to know where your order is? Dispensaries can connect with brands in just a few clicks!
Retailers can also use the Sample Request feature, which allows dispensaries to try before buying. This ensures that the product will be a favorite by retail customers and promotes strong business relationships between brands and retailers.
“LeafLink has been a great resource for our team - I use it every day. From its vast network of vendors, to order fulfillment and shipping status updates, to new product announcements, its one-stop-shop model has helped me streamline the ordering process for the 15+ stores I oversee.”
- Dan Hirchak, Purchasing Manager, Harvest Dispensary
