Safe, convenient and hassle-free, Multiply connects virtual shoppers to 88,000 online stores
July 7, 2011 – With 88,000 shops accessible with just a click, Multiply has officially become the country’s largest digital mall that offers everything from today’s hottest fashion finds, gadgets, mobile phones to the latest in beauty, mommy and baby products.
What began primarily as a social networking site where millions of people went to share photos and videos, Multiply has evolved to become a fully functioning e-commerce site that not only connects shopping success for virtual shoppers but also real-life business success for its merchants.
“When Multiply made the shift into becoming an e-commerce site, one of the first things we wanted to accomplish was to be able to offer more than convenience and variety to the Multiply shopper,” said Jack Madrid, country manager of Multiply Philippines. “We also wanted to create an e-commerce platform that was reliable and secure that will be able to connect entrepreneurs to their market,” he added.
Safe, hassle-free shopping for virtual shopaholics
Do heavy work hours prevent you from visiting the mall? Trying to find that unique item without
success? Have you ever dreamed of shopping with your PJs on? Whether you’re looking for that perfect dress, the coolest gadget or a one-of-a-kind product, Multply’s 88,000 shops are open for shopping 24/7, and you won’t need to dress up to shop.
But more than convenience and variety, Multiply also offers a secure, easy-to-follow payment scheme through its partnerships with BDO Virtual Card, BPI, Paypal and G-Cash. To lessen purchasing disputes, Multiply also has a Buyer Protection Program for merchants that protects their customer’s purchases.
Sifting through 88,000 on-line stores can be exciting but for those who have no time to ‘window shop’
Multiply has a listing of its 17 product categories: Beauty and Fragrances, Baby and Toddler, Clothing, Shoes and Accessories, Collectibles, Computers, Electronics, Food, Flowers and Gifts, Health and Personal Care, Home and Garden, Jewelry and Watches, Movies, Music and Books, Professional Services, Sports and Outdoors, Toys and Hobbies, Video Games and Everything Else.
Real-world success found on-line
Packed with all kinds of features, the new Multiply site makes it easy, affordable and safe for any would-be entrepreneur to start and sustain his/her own business online, and possibly expand in an offline setting once the business becomes well-established.
Alwin Aguirre has been a successful Multiply merchant since 2008. His site toughbratbags.multiply.com features unique, customized hand bags for men.
Alwin said, “I’ve always had a fascination for bags and setting shop in Multiply was one of the best things I ever did. It’s quick, easy and convenient and saves me time to do other things I enjoy such as maintain a lifestyle blog on the side.”
Jonie Cheng agrees as she’s been a Multiply merchant for two years. Her digital shop
mamaway.multiply.com focuses on maternity wear and she has been happy with the growth of her business.
“When I began, I was hesitant to put out such a big investment because I wasn’t as familiar with the mommy and baby market. Now I bring in about two collections a year. I’m very satisfied.”
Alwin and Jonie are two of the 2,500 new sellers that register and set up a business in Multiply every month. This number grows everyday and successful user experience has made
Multiply the most preferred online digital shop in the Philippines.
