Anurag Avula, CEO and Co-Founder of Shopmatic, said, “We are very excited to launch Shopmatic World especially since it aims at delivering significant value to our merchants, helping them get discovered online. Often, brands go unnoticed in the cloud and need some help getting noticed by discerning buyers. Shopmatic World curates the stories of ingenuity and perseverance of entrepreneurs and the resilience in which they transformed from skilled professionals or hobbyists to successful entrepreneurs. With this curated platform, we intend to help small businesses get discovered for their uniqueness.“
Shopmatic World is only open to sellers who have created their own ecommerce stores using the Shopmatic platform. Shopmatic World will serve as a discovery platform for buyers, showcasing individual stories of these different sellers, and the products or services they are selling.

Shopmatic World opens to an enchanting showcase of different brands, carrying a brief snippet about each seller, with accompanying pictures. Online visitors can delve deeper into the brands that intrigued them at first sight and discover the story behind its genesis, along with its top-selling products. If the online visitors wish to purchase from the brand of their liking, they would then be redirected to the individual online store of the brand.
