Belize-On is an innovative app designed by Karl H Menzies Company Limited as a new way to shop in Belize. Consumers can log in to the app and purchase from different stores around the country without even leaving their home. Their purchases can also be delivered to their front door. According to Kay Menzies, Managing Director of Karl H Menzies, there are already tons of vendors on the app selling items ranging from cosmetics to cleaning supplies.

Kay Menzies, Karl H Menzies: “We’re launching a business ecosystem tonight and this is a website, apps, it’s on the Google Playstore, it’s on Ios, where people will be able to shop online for basically at some point it will be anything that is available in Belize. We have quite a few vendors that have already signed up and people can shop online, make their payments online and have their purchases delivered as though they were shopping online anywhere in the world. There are ecommerce apps in the country and websites but this is the first one that’s an integrated app, website, full platform that allows more than one vendor on there. What we did was we didn’t do it just for Karl H Menzies we did it for anybody who ever wanted to be online but didn’t want to take the time to set up their own site. You’d open the app, browse through, make your selections, you can search if you want to search for any particular product and it’s on there, make your choices, choose your quantities, go through the process; if you’d like to record your purchases you can sign up and have an account for free. We have several payment methods and one of the more exciting ones is that we set up gift cards so that if you’d like to purchase a gift card at any time you can do so at any Western Union outlet be it BCCI Western Union or Zitro Bill Pay and then you use that gift card at any time until the balance runs out- it never expires. Other than that we have bank deposit capabilities and transfer.”

The app is being launched tonight, and is being shown live on Belize Go’s Facebook Page as well as Karl H Menzies’ beverage distribution page.
