A multi-store approach gives the ability to launch and maintain several online stores catering to different audiences and marketing channels. This approach becomes much more effective, especially when businesses attempt to tap both domestic and international prospects. 

Let’s consider the example of a vendor running an online store providing uniforms to a Global hospitality chain. 

Now, instead of catering to all hotels & properties from a single site, the vendor can create multiple stores for each location. This allows the seller to make changes to each of these stores in a way that is personalized to each property based on the location while managing everything from one central dashboard. 

Separated by location, but linked to a single administrator

If you have an online storefront for each region or customer that you serve; You can customize the store by leveraging local references and colloquialisms, that will help create a tailored experience for each of your customers.

Each of your customer base will have different requirements. Understanding that each of your customers is unique is critical to providing a product that appeals to as many people as possible. As the age-old saying goes... if you try to please everyone, you will please no one. 

Instead of being just generally appropriate for your clientele, you can tailor your product to be specifically perfect for each of the different user segments. 

2. Fulfill orders better

Whether growing sales in new regions with localized storefronts, streamlining operations for managing multiple brands or customizing for completely different customer segments — you can do it all from the same dashboard.
