The Shop Hacker platform launched earlier this year is focused on allowing ecommerce merchants to expand into the universe of digital products. Shop Hacker enables online merchants to sell digital products such as elearning courses, software, games and design assets. Amazon’s dominance in ecommerce requires entrepreneurs to get creative with their merchandise mix. Digital products are one category where ecommerce entrepreneurs are having success.
According to Matt Smith, CEO and Founder of Shop Hacker, “Digital products are completely under utilized by today’s ecommerce entrepreneurs as compared to physical products. Digital products have higher margins, allow for easy instant worldwide distribution, and are not as price competitive. In the US, Amazon effectively has a monopoly in physical product ecommerce so entrepreneurs should focus on areas where they can win and digital product is one of those areas.”
Shop Hacker is waiting for Shopify to publish the app in the Shopify App Store. So for now you have to download the app directly from ShopHacker.com/shopify
Groupees.com entered into a strategic partnership with Shop Hacker after seeing the substantial demand in elearning courses from Groupees’ 1M+ active users. According to Thomas Brooke, Founder of Groupees, “Shop Hacker has proven to be an extremely valuable partner for us.” Terms of the strategic partnership include Groupees receiving an equity stake in Shock Hacker. “We are investing in the relationship and advising the Shop Hacker team because we believe their solution will work for 1000s of ecommerce merchants globally as it has worked for us. We have done 6-figures in elearning revenue over the last 12 months whereas before the partnership with we were doing no elearning revenue at all,” Brooke said.
Shop Hacker currently offers several integrations for ecommerce merchants. Online shop owners can integrate with the Shop Hacker platform via API, via Shopify app, or manually. Shop Hacker plans to roll out several ecommerce platform integrations over the next 12 months on major platforms such as WooCommerce/WordPress, BigCommerce, AbanteCart, and 3DCart.
