Gold Coast eCommerce agency Alinga has been selected to represent the booming Asia Pacific region at an exclusive Shopify partner event.
Alinga owner Adrian Judd was one of 20 leading Shopify partners from across the world to be invited to the private roundtable event in Ottawa, Canada. Shopify is the world’s fastest-growing eCommerce platforms that relies on its partners and experts to help setup, develop, and grow merchants online stores. Shopify recently surpassed 1 million stores, the company has accelerated expansion into the Asia Pacific (APAC) region and introduced an enterprise level Shopify Plus offering – it’s a very exciting time to be a partner. Adrian said the Shopify event brought together some of the world’s leading Shopify partners in their fields to collaborate on ways to continue to grow the eCommerce ecosystem.
“I’ve been inspired by Shopify and how they support, and want to help grow, both the merchants and their partners.”
“The merchants we work with understand that customers are looking for a seamless experience and this relies on having top-level systems and processes. “As a Shopify partner, Alinga can help meet the challenges and capitalise on the opportunities online retail brings.”
He said while today’s business world was a rapidly changing one, some things remained consistent at Alinga.
“Just like social media was the make or break for successful businesses a few years ago, now it’s so important for businesses to have an innovative online presence that offers customers a fast and seamless shopping experience,” Adrian said.
The rising popularity of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales shows that Australians love online shopping, whether it’s for clothes, electronics or furniture, and they’re using their mobile phones to do it.
Black Friday is the Friday after America’s Thanksgiving (this year it falls on November 29), followed two days later by Cyber Monday (December 2). Nowadays, it signals the start of holiday spending season, with last year’s Black Friday leading to an increase of 3.6% in overall retail sales across Australia compared to the previous year, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
“At Alinga, we love to work with businesses to deliver scalable solutions and Shopify is a vital part of that journey. With national and global brands re-platforming across to Shopify, it really is an exciting time to be a partner,” Adrian said.
