About Us:

Over 5M independent online retailers around the world are constantly looking to add fresh products to their stores- these retailers are taking a big chunk of the e-commerce sales: a market that is expected to double up and hit $4.48 trillion by 2021. However, the online retail market is extremely difficult for independent players. Small-medium online retailers are troubled with complications regarding buying products in bulk and holding inventory to ensure good discounts, fulfilling orders, providing customer support and stocking the trendiest products keep up in the market . Spocket removes all these burdens from the retailer’s shoulders, and lets them easily source products from reliable suppliers. No upfront cost and no inventory requirements- only great products at deeply discounted prices. When a retailer sells a product, Spocket automatically fulfill the orders to the end consumer.
Our mission at Spocket is to rethink online retail and eliminate the need to hold inventory entirely. We use a model called dropshipping to make this happen. This revolutionary offering has drawn over 25,000 online retailers to the Spocket platform within a year and half after our launch.
We are looking for smart, resourceful and passionate people to join this movement with us.
