Can I buy HORAGE products from a local retailer?

Why does the local retailer have a BRAND CLOUD SALES APP and why does he complete every sales process trough his smartphone?
The BrandCloud Sales App is connecting every retailer with our online shop. It is called SALES APP because it enables the sales person to act on behalf of HORAGE. That's why every executed HORAGE sales in a local store is a direct sales process between the brand (HORAGE) and the consumer (you). Every HORAGE product on any shopfloor is also connected to our online shop and can only be sold by scanning the QR-code trough the SALES APP. Your desired product can directly be picked-up at the shopfloor or ordered online.
Why do I have to pay trough a card-reader at a local retailer?
This is only required when paying by credit card or EC card. The card-reader works as a mobile payment terminal and ensures a save transaction of money from your account to our companies account. It is simply the link between your card and our payment system, just like every traditional payment terminal in a regular shop. All card readers are monitored by our system and can only execute BrandCloud registered products. In this way we can avoid fraud in a simple and efficient way. Every HORAGE authorized retailer is offering cardreader payment and is used to it.
