Good news for e-commerce businesses!

WhatsApp Business now adds QR codes and catalog sharing to make it easier for e-commerce businesses to communicate with their customers. 🥳
Now, if a customer needs to reach a company for any kind of support, instead of manually entering a business phone number, they can just scan a QR code to connect with the company!☝️

The real implication? No more googling for "Priya Fashions contact no." to reach the company 😌
The WhatsApp catalog sharing feature that will also allow companies to create and share links to their catalogues to post elsewhere. All these features are currently *free of cost* and will prove to be a great boon for e-commerce businesses. 🎁

We are live at @PetFedUK #virtualpetindex conference! If you weren't able to attend this talk on the £131 billion pound #pet industry, you can catch up later in the week when our recording be live on
The death of the #highstreet is not universally applicable. Empty shop fronts range from 5% to circa 30%.

Future of the high street may lie in more residential and entertainment space in the centre of towns, alongside #retail.

Jack Tindale, #retail expert from @Policy_Connect
We need to re-imagine the #highstreet. #Pet businesses can offer a tactile #shopping opportunity that isn't open to other commercial entities

Mixed feeling from May #jobsreport: optimism, skepticism & anguish:

- Optimism as payrolls +2.5mn – largest increase on record.

- Skepticism as gain contrasts sharply w/ new unemployment benefit since April.

- Anguish as the cumulative 19.6mn job losses from GCR is 2* GFC
Encouraging 2.5mn job gains concentrated in:
- leisure and hospitality (+1.2mn)
> with food services & drinking place (+1.4mn) making up 1/2 total gains
- construction (+464k)
- health services (+312k)
- #retail trade (+368k)
- #manufacturing (+225k)
But, strains on government budgets & lock down effects were apparent with 585,000 government job losses mostly in local education employment (-310k)

A thread on E-commerce 🧵🧶

Here is how e-commerce really works in India. There are two major companies, 1: amazon 🥇2: Flipkart (owned by Walmart).🥈

they both are legally a marketplace. to understand it deeply you need to understand the FDI policy of India for e-commerce
In India e-commerce is divided into two models’
🎁(a): marketplace model ( NO inventory can be held by the marketplace ) and FDI in this model is 100%

🎁(B): inventory model (inventory can be controlled by the e-commerce company) and FDI in this model is 0 %.
India allows 100% FDI in B2B wholesale, so what amazon/ Flipkart do is, they buy products in bulks using their B2B arm from various brands and manufacturers then they add a layer of preferred sellers to whom they sell these products 🔜🔝🔛🔙🔚

How Autistics Are Mistaken for Shoplifters: A THREAD.

#ActuallyAutistic #AllAutistics #Retail #LossPrevention
I've spent half of my life in retail, and was pretty good at spotting shoplifters.

But since being diagnosed with autism, I realized that I was really learning how to spot autistics.

Here are the ways autistics are mistaken for shoplifters:
1. Fidgeting:
Autistics often fidget or ’stim’ to self-regulate in stressful or overstimulating environments. It doesn't mean that we're nervous about pocketing your merchandise.

The #UKGovernment #Torture Report. Instead of addressing it, they keep trying to frame us. We want answers! @10DowningStreet

To read the full thread (draft at this stage as 4 more years of frame ups need to be added)…

#bbcnews #royalfamily @metpoliceuk
The short outline version is as below in this thread. It's still quite long because it started in 2006 & the UK Authorities, mainly the #MetPolice, have invested a lot of time & resources in trying to get rid of this problem by hook or by crook
#bbcnews #royalfamily
It started with the #MetPolice being caught out falsifying paperwork - a search warrant. When caught out they tried to frame me for a crime I did not commit. #bbcnews #royalfamily #Metpoliceuk

Professionals have been piling into puts - this is the 10 day #OEX put/call ratio


(this post is especially for @yuriymatso)

Longer-term $TICK is on the zero line (though this calculation is deceptive as in OVERLY OPTIMISTIC - even an over-optimistic measure with inherent quantization is at signficant risk of a major breakdown)

THREAD: We recently identified the property characteristics which were featured in the best performing #retail properties over the last five years. Our categories were property subtype, region, the year in which it was built, and tenant mix. More info on the top performers below.
The best performing property subtypes were drug stores and urban retail. Drug store loans performed well due to their consistently high occupancy rates and low delinquency readings. Urban retail’s strong performance can be credited to its massive NOI figures.
Properties in the Middle Atlantic US (NY, NJ, and PA) topped all other regions in our study. The strong performance of the region is helped along by the massive volume of retail #CMBS in #NYC, as well as the large concentration of single-tenant properties.

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their jobs properly & then decided to take the law into their own hands. The result of this decision has led to events stranger than fiction

#BBCNews #Skynews #Itvnews #Channel4News #ThisMorning #TheresaMay #UKGov #LBC
My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

Has anyone else noticed supermarkets putting in old school high racking? Extra shelving for unopened stock over the racks? Two of my locals have done this in last 2 weeks
This is something I haven't seen in British supermarkets since I worked for Kwikkies back in 1996-1998
We used to have an extra, heavy weight layer of shelving above the ones customers use, loaded with cases of stock. During trading you'd walk the floor pulling out cardboard from the shelves and pulling stock forwards

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it -

#skynews #lbc #theresamay #uk #bbcnews #coverup #c4news #worldnews #ukgov
Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed
