During October 12, 2016, we were part of the E-commerce track as part of the E-commerce panel the topic “Managing Online Stores” along with other E-commerce platforms like Lazada, Zalora, and Marketa. We were there to represent how shopinas has been able to manage different merchants that use our platform.
To make the panel discussion more engaging and relatable, we brought along one of our pioneer merchants in the platform with an interesting success story to tell.
Nikki Cruz, Head of Marketing for Snoe Beauty Inc. engaged the audience with how they started from bazaars then expanding their business online with shopinas as their first marketplace, continuing their success with retail stores in Malls to having their own E-commerce platform.
