Over 2,000 funeral professionals have increased their level of service without increasing their responsibilities with funeralOne’s breakthrough ecommerce solution, The Sympathy Store. The Sympathy Store is a free, done-for-you ecommerce plug-in that allows funeral firms to sell gifts and flowers directly on their website, earning up to 25% commission on every order.

“The Sympathy Store was created specifically to help people in the community support families during their time of need, even if they can’t attend the loved one’s service,” reported CEO and Founder of funeralOne, Joe Joachim.

 

It allows funeral home website visitors to shop sympathy gifts and flowers at the same place they’re viewing obituaries and sharing memories, transforming the average funeral home website into a one-stop-shop.

“What interested me the most [about The Sympathy Store] was the ability for visitors to stay on our website the entire time. When they come to our website to find an obituary and they want to send flowers – they can choose to send those flowers right from our website. They’re not leaving to go to someone else’s [website]. Now we have a way to actually retain that customer,” explains Amy Rodrigue from Tezak’s Home to Celebrate Life.

The Sympathy Store offers the largest selection of sympathy gifts online today, featuring some of the biggest sympathy brands like Mrs. Fields, Godiva and Precious Moments.  And if funeral homes have preferred local florists, they can continue sending business to them as well.

For every order placed through their Sympathy Store, funeral firms earn up to 25% commissions – the highest  in the industry.

Best of all, The Sympathy Store is a turnkey eCommerce solution – meaning the funeral home doesn’t have to take on any new responsibilities. funeralOne handles all of the logistics, from coordinating with local florists, to ordering, billing, shipping, and even customer service.

Mike Wasik of Wasik Funeral home integrated The Sympathy Store into his website in January 2012, and in one year generated nearly $20,000 in revenue from his Sympathy Store orders.  “My families and community love The Sympathy Store and it’s so easy to use. It simply runs in the background, generating extra revenue for my firm,” says Wasik.
