Making eCommerce selling simpler
Beam Commerce builds software that helps boost sales for eCommerce stores. Their suite of products includes five apps that help with upselling, order tracking, shop quizzes, and more. The apps are simple and easy to use, enabling merchants to get setup without having to hire developers or sit through hours of tutorial videos.
With rising ad costs, eCommerce stores are always looking for ways to increase customer orders on the site. Beam's apps help increase the basket size, and help clients get more value per customer. The eCommerce landscape is currently made up of software that often doesn't play well with other tools, and is difficult to use. The Beam app suite solves these issues by being operating easily with other software and tools, and is ready to use with no coding required.
Next steps for BeamCommerce
The BeamCommerce team generated over $50M worth of transactions across their 8,500+ registered merchants, including some of the world's largest eCommerce brands like Feastables – owned by renowned YouTuber, MrBeast (more here). The company’s main focus is to add paid plans to all of their apps, which requires a post-MVP product. They are also focused on acquiring larger eCommerce brands to build more content around their apps, and increase revenue.
For Co-Founder Dhruv Patel, disrupting the eCommerce sector was a natural fit: "My first job was a retail tech associate at Staples where I worked to understand customer needs and recommend solutions. This was a great learning experience because it taught me the value of customer input and feedback in building a product."
