OREM, Utah - May 5, 2015 - Doba is partnering with Bigcommerce, a leading ecommerce provider, to provide access to three million products and hundreds of suppliers, enabling retailers to grow their online businesses without having to store inventory, manage shipping and logistics or handle returns. By working with Doba, retailers can operate in a dropship model, which allows them to source products from suppliers across the country who fulfill orders directly to their customers. Bigcommerce clients selling with Doba have been able to increase their monthly sales by 37 percent without scaling their operational costs.
With online sales expected to eclipse $1.6 trillion in 2015, businesses owners are looking for ways to grow their operations. Doba’s robust product catalog gives retailers the option to accelerate the growth of their online business by populating their store with products or expanding their existing catalog, source and deliver a variety of products faster, intelligently merchandise the best products at the right time, and automatically update their online stores with product information.
