ShopInDot: A Digital Platform for eCommerce Sellers & Buyers
eCommerce has always been an essential tool in the digital world. With businesses having to close due to the pandemic, they had to adapt to online platforms to thrive. eCommerce has since grown exponentially, despite being long-established before COVID-19. With this knowledge, the ShopInDot digital platform was born.
This transition resulted in online revenue growth of up to 44% and increased 39% year-over-year in 2021. According to an analysis conducted by GlobalData’s eCommerce, the eCommerce market in Singapore is rising. The compound annual growth rate (CAGR) before was 15.4% from 2015, to reach S$8.3bn (US$6.2bn) in 2019. The eCommerce market was estimated to have reached S$9.5bn (US$9.5bn) in 2020. With these statistics, this trend will undoubtedly continue post-pandemic. With that, now is the best time to capitalize on establishing an online platform for your business.

What is ShopInDot?
ShopInDot is a digital platform that showcases various products and services. The platform carries multiple brands, serving as a one-stop shop for all your needs. This is comparable to physical stores such as department stores but in a wholly digital setting. Such a platform eliminates the need for online shoppers to visit multiple sites to find the products they want. This allows eCommerce business owners to sell their products to a larger audience efficiently.
We designed the ShopInDot digital platform to improve the quality of Singapore’s eCommerce scene. While each eCommerce businesses have their separate websites, ShopInDot takes us to a whole different level. Instead of going through different sites to source for different needs, ShopInDot eases the process. We serve as your all-in-one source by offering a wide range of products. These vary from fashion and beauty to home décor, electronics and many more. It helps save consumers a lot of time and effort on their end. As well as helping broaden the reach of the businesses.
In addition, ‘ShopInDot’ is a play on words. ‘Shop In’ is a result of ‘shopping.’ While ‘Dot’ came from both Singapore’s nickname ‘Little Red Dot’ as well as the period found in a typical website URL.
A Very Brief History of ShopInDot
Created in 2021, ShopInDot was conceived to combat the new normal brought upon by Covid-19. Due to lockdowns and Covid restrictions, online shopping and eCommerce have become essential in our everyday lives. Thus, the ShopInDot digital platform provides convenience to business owners and consumers alike. To business owners as an opportunity to bounce back, making their stores more accessible to everyone. All while making customers’ lives easier, as they can shop from the comfort of their own homes.
However, what sets ShopInDot apart is the way this platform brings opportunities and success to local businesses here in Singapore. While other multi-store platforms offer access to various stores, they don’t highlight homegrown companies. ShopInDot does precisely this, recognizing the importance of showcasing domestic talent and businesses. Whether you’re an established business or a small one just starting, you are sure to get the spotlight you deserve. With ShopInDot, your business automatically stands out and immediately outshines the outside competition.

This benefits business owners as it serves as a portal for all products and services. Apart from having your ecommerce website, you have another means to reach new people and potential partners.
