FAQs

Is a Fixed Price model right for me?

Citrus-Lime provides a fixed price model to deliver our End-to-End Cloud Retail Solution. We believe this is the best solution for you as it provides continuity and gives you peace of mind that your monthly bills aren't going to rise for a set period of time.

There are alternative platforms that offer lower monthly fees and coupled with a Per Transaction Fee, typically 2% of revenue. The problem with these, however, is that when you begin to make a success of your business, the cost of ownership rise alongside it.

For example, if your basic platform is costing you 150 per month to support and you are achieving sales of just 10,000 per month, then the Citrus-Lime Fixed Price and Variable Cost model of an alternative platform is essentially equal (150 + 2% of 10k @ 200 = 350).

As you continue to grow, however, the cost of owning Citrus-Lime's End-to-End Cloud Retail Solution remains fixed, helping you to stay in control of costs.

With the Variable Cost model of alternative providers, charges continue to rise in tandem with your sales revenue.

For example, using the same formula, a modest ambition of achieving 42,000 in monthly sales revenues, would result in a monthly support fee of 990 (almost 12,000 a year). with an alternative provider's Variable Cost model.

No matter where your ambition takes you, the fixed cost of your Citrus-Lime Solution remains predictable and low.

Are there alternative ways to pay for my Solution?

Yes, we're flexible in this regard. That said, given the typical business plan for a retailer is about five years, it's unsual to choose a system you don't plan on committing to for at least the same amount of time.

Typically, Citrus-Lime customers will sign-up on a 36 month agreement. This is the most cost-effective way to take ownership of the End-to-End solution as it means there are no up-front hardware, software or training costs to budget for.

We do provide options for a 12-month contract and a 30-Day Rolling agreement. Depending on your requirements, this will mean that some or all of the hardware, software and training costs will need to be paid up-front.

Are there other costs I should be aware of?

There are always costs for doing business, especially with ecommerce sites but this is common to all Retailers, not just Citrus-Lime customers. Fortunately, these costs are predictable and the benefits always outweigh the negatives.

Depending on your business, you may need to consider additional costs such as:

  • Merchant services (variable based on your chosen provider)
  • In-store card processing and hardware rental (eg. Payment Sense - £25/mth + variable transaction fees)
  • Online payment processing
  • Alternative payment methods (like citruspay, Apple Pay, Klarna or V12 Finance - variable)
  • Channel fees (such as Google Shopping, Amazon or eBay - variable)
  • Postcode look-ups (optional, usage dependent)
  • Courier-specific labels (optional, usage dependent)
  • Customer Rewards active accounts
