eCommerce Leader Shopatron Announces Significant UK Online Sales Growth
SAN LUIS OBISPO, California, April 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Heading into the 2012 Internet World conference in London, Shopatron has announced a 33% increase in same-store sales for its UK clients in Q1 2012 compared to the same quarter in 2011. This increase follows an even more impressive 53% increase in same-store sales in Q4 2011.
Increased revenues and the continued addition of brands to the Shopatron eCommerce platform are a clear result of the company's continued expansion in European markets. Shopatron's UK client-base has grown by 38% from 2010 to 2011. Recent additions to Shopatron's client-base in the UK include world-class brands such as Pilot Pen, Mitsubishi Pencil, and cycling companies likeÂ SchwalbeÂ and Specialized. The increased number of brands and more sales on the Shopatron order exchange means more online sales are being passed to retailers in the UK.
With Shopatron, local UK retailers like the LBM Art and Stationery Shop in Hitchin, Hertfordshire are able to grow revenue by becoming an online fulfillment partner for branded manufacturers they already stock in their shop.
"Last year I made an extra 10,000 pounds Sterling worth of business through Shopatron; stocking additional products from my vendors that I wouldn't have in the past," Paul Hagger, owner of LBM said in a recent interview. "Shopatron lets me know what people want to buy locally."
Shopatron will be bringing its retail-integrated eCommerce solution to Internet World 2012, the United Kingdom's largest and longest running online business event. The 20th anniversary of the event will take place April 24-26 in London and is expected to draw 12,000 visitors.
"Internet World is a great opportunity for Shopatron to show UK brands and multi-channel retailers our unique retail-integrated eCommerce solution," said Shaun Moores, General Manager, Shopatron Europe. "All those attending the conference can stop by to discuss how our patent-pending solution can help them sell more, both online and offline. There are not many companies that can legitimately claim that, but we can."
