WHAT IS EKIMPORT?
Ekimport is an online “Crowd Importing Platform” that enables SME retailers and online sellers to source global products from exporters at bulk (wholesale) prices without actually having to buy products in bulk.
WHAT IS EKIMPORT’S VISION?
Ekimport’s vision is to make cross-border trade for Small Medium Enterprises (SMEs) easy and more profitable using group commerce enabled by online Crowd Importing Platform and data-science (A.I.).
WHAT IS EKIMPORT’S SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPACT?
Status quo of cross-border trade by SMEs:
- SME retailers / online sellers - who sell products on platforms like Coupang (Korea), Flipkart (India) and Shopee (Singapore) - have no bargaining power to get bulk (wholesale) prices when they source global products, because their order-size is too small for exporters to give bulk (wholesale) prices.
- As a result, SME retailers are dependent on larger importers and distributors for sourcing global products. This means that the trendiest, newest and most innovative global products are usually out of direct reach of SME retailers, until some larger importer/distributor starts to source them.
Cross-border trade for SMEs via Ekimport:
- SME retailers can have direct access to new and innovative products available from exporters across the globe. They can maintain a wide variety of global products with leaner inventory as they have no pressure to buy in bulk to get bulk (wholesale) prices.
- This is possible because SME retailers can source small quantities of products across the globe and still be able to get wholesale (low) prices from exporters via Crowd Importing on Ekimport.
