It all started with the aim to democratize the e-commerce universally. However, it is better said than done. Naturally, the demand & supply shapes the dynamics of an Industry so is with e-commerce. Invariably, the largest economies – the US, UK, India, France, Canada, Germany have the highest demand.
The bigger the economy, more the purchasing power and more the purchasing power, higher the penetration of e-commerce. Therefore, in the first few years, the focused was solely to cater to the demands of predominantly US & European markets.
However, we started to cater to the demands of the emerging economies moving forward. Currently, we serve 500+ customers from the Indian subcontinent, Africa and South East Asia region.
Shopify: the Core technology:
It is here worth mentioning that Shopify has been among the core technologies we use in our mission to democratize the e-commerce. The core fundamentals of Shopify’s business – ease of operation, scalability, robust ecosystem – compelled users to take notice of their e-commerce platform and to adapt it as per their needs.
The rate of adoption of Shopify has been greater than any other e-commerce platform for all of the reasons stated above.
The Indian E-commerce Story:
India is the next big thing in the e-commerce space and everyone needs a piece of it. Amazon has their own website, Walmart acquired Flipkart, Alibaba holds the majority stake in the Paytm.
Similarly, Snapdeal, Shopclues, Jabong. Myntra (a Flipkart company) all have large investment houses as their venture capital or a high profile angel investor has infused cash in them. This is all in the anticipation of the big things to come to Indian e-commerce space.
CedCommerce’s first product, which has all the ingredients of success, for Shopify users is Shopping Feed. The app lets users connect their Shopify store with their Google Merchants Center and, manage and promote their Shopify products through Google Shopping Engine.
The Customized app Builder: mobile app development for Shopify
However, it’s the MageNative that has attracted the most attention from the Indian audiences. The customized app builder enables Shopify users to convert their Shopify store into a full-featured mobile app.
The reason for its popularity among the Indian seller, obviously, it’s affordability. Earlier a seller used to spend $1500-2000, however, now its available only for $20/mo. The app doesn’t require online sellers to know any coding still they can just build their personalized app from the scratch.
The m-commerce is poised to see 150% increment in next 2 years. Therefore, it offers a great opportunity for us to tap into and we’re equally optimistic and hopeful for the bright prospects for the MageNative app.
