Turn-key online shop gives fast, affordable way for small and mid-sized businesses to launch ecommerce offerings
St. Cloud, Minn. Feb. 11, 2021 – Dubow, a global leader in apparel and hardgoods decorating, announced a new partnership with Shopblocks, a hosted ecommerce platform, and Custom Gateway, a provider of on-demand product and order management systems. Together, this partnership gives Dubow customers – notably small and mid-sized B2B and B2C distributors – new options for easily and quickly launching and managing a customized, online store.
Many online shop solutions on the market are expensive, don’t offer customers the easy shopping experience they expect, or have rigid pricing parameters that don’t give businesses the flexibility they need. Many online shops also require minimum orders, which force distributors to buy, store and manage inventory.
The Dubow partnership changes all of that by giving distributors turn-key technology to increase online sales and expand current offerings. Built for the complexities of the promotional goods industry, Dubow customers get set-up with an online shop quickly – without the need for coding knowledge, an IT team, or an understanding of website design.
- All orders are fulfilled on demand, eliminating the need to hold or manage inventory.
- No minimum order requirements.
- Pricing flexibility includes volume pricing, discount codes, and limited-time offers.
- Create and launch a high-quality online site in a matter of minutes.
“This ecommerce offering opens up a new world of possibilities for our small and mid-sized B2B and B2C customers,” said Rob Dubow, CEO of Dubow. “Most online store platforms only want to work with the largest companies that are ordering millions of products. But now, any sized distributor with any order size can take advantage of an automated, efficient and super-fast online store with on-demand printing that gets the product to the customer faster.”
“We’re thrilled to work with Dubow as our first U.S. partner,” said Kevin Jones, CEO of Shopblocks. “Distributors are craving an option that’s more customizable than the typical online shop offering, but isn’t as expensive as an enterprise-level solution. This partnership gives them easy, affordable choices for launching powerful online shops that reflect their brand.”
“Dubow’s customers get an end-to-end solution unlike anything they’ve been offered before,” said Alistair Mylchreest, workflow sales director at Custom Gateway. “Our software seamlessly connects Shopblock’s platform with Dubow’s fulfillment and shipping systems, so getting the product printed and out the door to customers has never been faster or easier.”
