Get Pointy for $399 Before November Price Increase

The North American Retail Hardware Association (NRHA) has partnered with Pointy to help retailers strengthen their online presence—but the $399 offer exclusive to NRHA members will expire on Oct. 31.

Starting Nov. 1, the price for NRHA members will increase to $499. This new price still represents a 44 percent discount on the standard $899 price tag, but from now until Oct. 31, retailers can save even more while boosting their online presence.

What is Pointy?

Pointy connects to your store’s barcode scanner and POS system. As store products are scanned, it uploads pictures and product information online. When customers search Google for products you’ve scanned, they’ll see an online listing in Google’s “See What’s in Store” feature directing them to your business.

How can Pointy help independent retailers reach customers?

When customers search Google for local hardware stores or the products you’ve scanned through Pointy, they will be directed to your location where they can purchase the products they need in person. According to Google data, up to 1 million people in the U.S. search for “hardware store near me” on their computer or mobile devices each month.

Is Pointy right for you?

More than 1,100 hardware stores in the U.S. use the program. There are no recurring charges, and Pointy offers a 90-day money-back guarantee to ensure your complete satisfaction.

How NRHA Helps Business Owners

NRHA is driven to help hardware stores, home centers and lumberyards become better and more profitable merchants.

Independent retailers face competition from big-box retailers and e-commerce giants like Amazon. A robust online presence helps attract customers, but maintaining a website and online advertising may not fit into every store’s budget. The partnership between NRHA and Pointy helps strengthen your business’s online reach and is just one of the ways NRHA helps independent retailers prosper.
