🛒 A platform tailored for ecommerce businesses
The pandemic prompted many small and medium-sized businesses to pivot towards ecommerce strategies. On the consumer side, online shopping increased by more than 46%. Meanwhile, ecommerce spending in 2021 is set to reach more than $933 billion.
In response, Sendinblue has selected three of the best Shopify apps to expand its offering and help small and medium-sized businesses compete digitally on a larger scale.
“Acquiring Metrilo, Chatra and PushOwl are part of Sendinblue’s longer term vision to expand our marketing capabilities and dive into the growing ecommerce space. Now, our all-in-one digital marketing solution will become even more powerful, enabling these businesses to expedite sales and drive strategic business decisions.”
Armand Thiberge, CEO of Sendinblue

About PushOwl 💙
PushOwl was founded in 2016 by Shashank Kumar. Based in India, PushOwl allows ecommerce stores to enable web push notifications as a marketing channel, turning visitors into subscribers, and driving more revenue.
With the app, customers can send marketing campaigns, set up automated flows, recover abandoned carts, personalize their promotions, and constantly optimize their strategy with granular metrics and reporting.
“A push notification channel has yet to be launched by Sendinblue. Now, with our technology, users will be able to launch push notification campaigns from their websites and in response to specific scenarios such as abandoned carts.
