Shopmatic launches its operations in Hong Kong and strengthens its Asia network, bringing regional opportunities to Hong Kong online stores
Affordable One-Stop E-Commerce Solutions for USD 38 a month
Shopmatic, a regional e-commerce solutions provider, today announced the launch of its Hong Kong business operations. The launch follows the company’s recent investments in India and Singapore will be followed by further expansions into countries in this region such as Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, and the Philippines.
The launch will enable Hong Kong online stores, SMEs and entrepreneurs to conveniently and easily sell products and services online in Hong Kong and the region at a monthly subscription rate of USD 38. This offers them the opportunity to utilise the services of a single partner who provides the entire ecosystem for online store owners. Hong Kong merchants who sign up for Shopmatic for the first time will enjoy a 15-day trial period during which they can establish their site and experience the entire service.
Shopmatic will help Hong Kong SMEs and entrepreneurs sell products and services online and capitalise on the growing local and regional e-commerce opportunities. Industry analysts have estimated that almost 90% of Hong Kong consumers shopped online in the past 12 months, while one-third of the e-shoppers made online purchases within the same week they conducted the survey. Hong Kong is known for being the city with the highest internet penetration in the region with a strong IT infrastructure. It is also well known for having a solid and rapidly-growing e-commerce appetite and population of e-shoppers. This has attracted a number of start-ups to develop their online businesses here, exploring opportunities within Hong Kong and in the region.
Shopmatic understands that a number of Hong Kong SMEs and entrepreneurs in the market are always on the lookout for affordable and one-stop e-commerce solutions to build a strong Hong Kong foothold for regional expansion. The launch of Shopmatic in Hong Kong brings a regional network partnership as well as market insights that cater to the business needs of these online stores. The platform enables business owners to build and manage their businesses on one single platform without having to worry about alternative marketplace commission, which can cost up to 15% for each transition.
Shopmatic will strengthen its Asia network by expanding into other countries in this region such as Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines later this year. “With our strong presence in India and Singapore, we are confident that we can help the Hong Kong online stores expand into the region. We also see huge potential in the ways in which we can help Hong Kong SMEs expand their businesses from offline to online for its mature traditional retail model,” Mr Anurag Avula, CEO and Co-Founder, Shopmatic, said.
In addition to Shopmatic’s extensive regional network, its partnership with PayPal is another testament to Shopmatic’s regional capability. PayPal enables cross-border trade for local business owners, making it easier for merchants to accept payments from customers outside Hong Kong.
As a result, Shopmatic will enter the market with solid operational experience in the region and a history of adding value. It aims to help strengthen the local presence of business owners, which is mutually beneficial by getting help from the platform to showcase products on popular marketplaces such as Amazon and social media channels such as Facebook. “We bring ease and convenience by managing the entire ecosystem, connecting every e-commerce user with the world customers,” Mr. Avula, said.
