Who Should Consider Getting It?
BlueSnap is an e-commerce platform that allows merchants of all sizes to sell their goods in a secure and connected manner. It provides everything from backend tools, payment gateways, fraud protection service, point-of-sale systems, customer relationship management (CRM), shipping carriers and more – so you can focus on the things you’re best at while BlueSnap handles your business needs. The company was founded by two entrepreneurs who wanted to make it easier for people with physical products to get online without having to worry about any technical aspects or taking months upon months developing the product.
It removes some of the most painful obstacles experienced when first getting into selling online: setting up websites and shopping carts; integrating credit card processing; handling returns and exchanges; shipping orders to customers.
BlueSnap also helps with other aspects of the business such as customer service, inventory management, and social media marketing – so you can focus on your product while we take care of the rest.
The company has been able to grow rapidly in a short time because it is helping both small businesses who have physical products that they want to sell online for the first time plus large brick-and-mortar retailers looking for new channels to reach their customers. They’ve handled tens of millions in transactions since 2012 which speaks volumes about how quickly this startup is growing and evolving into something bigger than just an ecommerce platform (source). More recently BlueSnap was purchased by IBM Corp., one of the largest technology companies in the world.
