VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Spocket, a dropshipping platform and online merchant marketplace, announced today the addition of Wix and BigCommerce integrations to its platform. Joining its existing integrations with Shopify and WooCommerce, these new partnerships will connect Spocket to more merchants than any other dropshipping platform for verified US and EU goods. Providing over two million entrepreneurs with access to dropshipping technology to grow a sustainable eCommerce business.
Since March, Spocket has doubled its merchant base, bringing its total users over 60,000. With the Wix and BigCommerce integrations, Spocket is rising to meet increased merchant demand for streamlined dropshipping capabilities — a fulfillment method that allows eCommerce merchants to source products from vendors, and then sell these products through their own online stores, without having to invest upfront or ever actually warehouse the stock.
“Expanding Spocket’s integrations through these partnerships, provides an audience of over two million entrepreneurs access to the digital tools needed to maintain a successful eCommerce dropshipping business,” said Saba Mohebpour, Founder and CEO of Spocket. “Dropshipping has made great strides in recent years. We are seeing reputable brands turn to dropshipping to expand their range of products and advancements in technology, like Spocket’s verified online merchant marketplace, making it more accessible as a legitimate business opportunity for working-professional entrepreneurs.”
In the confines of the Coronavirus pandemic, during the first six months of 2020 consumers spent over 30% more online with US retailers (totalling $347.26 billion) in comparison to the same period in 2019. This surge in online spending indicates an immediate opportunity in eCommerce right now.
