Yakkyofy, the Italian startup known for helping website owners manage their dropshipping businesses, has just announced a new — Woocommerce integration. With the application already fully connected with Shopify, the company has made this WooCommerce solution available to all users who sell online using WordPress websites.
Yakkyofy is part of the Lventure Group startup portfolio and has been competitively selected to be part of the LUISS ENLABS Startups Acceleration Program. The new WooCommerce integration will give Yakkyofy the chance to reach out to new audiences and ecommerce entrepreneurs working on the WordPress platform and, consequently, increase the company’s profits.
Giovanni Conforti, CEO and Founder of Yakkyofy, says, "Our startup provides automated services for dropshipping businesses, and our goal is to become the reference point for WooCommerce users. This is a huge step forward for our company and, believe me, this is just the beginning. We have big plans coming up in the next few months.”
Dropshipping is a groundbreaking business model used to sell goods online without the need to buy wholesale loads of stock or invest in storage units or a warehouse. A third-party company is in charge of the sourcing and the shipping of the products to the final users. The dropshipper is 'only' left to deal with the marketing, advertisement, and sale of the products; he does not need to deal with any of the fulfilment logistics.
The ecommerce market has experienced remarkable economic growth in the last 10 years thanks to new technologies. According to Euromonitor International, ecommerce is expected to become the largest worldwide retail channel by 2021. Data show that almost 27% of the global population in 2018 - 1,79 billion people - have purchased online at least once. The United States and China are the main players in this market - counting for 69.1% of the total market value, and the eCommerce sector is constantly growing so there is still plenty of space for people who want to open their very own online stores now.
eCommerce offers interesting growth prospects for businesses and entrepreneurs, and the dropshipping model has quickly become the favorite way to enter this market. Woocommerce, the WordPress Plugin for online sellers with over 18 million downloads, is one the most widely used platforms to build an online store.
"WooCommerce is a great professional challenge for Yakkyofy," Giovanni Conforti states. “This is because it gives us the opportunity to offer, for the first time ever on this platform, dropshipping of private label products with personalized packaging. Moreover, the fulfilment process will be totally automated, from payment to the delivery.”
Yakkyofy's services are free of charge and allow users to import items to their own online stores, to ask for price quotes for the items they need, and to track their orders quickly and easily. After downloading the Yakkyofy Chrome Extension, all it takes is just one click to send Yakkyofy all of the information they need to give them a pricing quote for products they’ve already found on the main Chinese marketplaces such as Alibaba, Aliexpress, Wish, GearBeast and Banggood. Once the quote is ready, they will receive a notification and will be able to import the products to their Woocommerce store.
"We are happy to finally expand our customer audience to include the Wordpress users, but our work is not finished yet," Giovanni Conforti says. "We are a startup, so every day our whole team is always focused on developing better services for our customers. That's why I want to thank, first of all, my partner Carol Hsiao and then all my staff for their excellent work and their dedication. Stay tuned. we still have a lot of great news coming up!”
