Launch of New e-Commerce Service Will Make Selling Online More Accessible

A staggering 1,800 businesses have already signed up to a free online service just weeks after being launched – following a significant investment from eCommerce parcel broker Parcel Monkey.

Kong – easyCommerce is an innovative new model which aims to make eCommerce more accessible by empowering anyone to sell products through their own, professional online store.

The free service, which is being seed funded by the technology-driven parcel firm, is already creating a buzz among small businesses and retailers – and bosses are confident the sign up figure will continue to rise quickly over the coming weeks.

Parcel Monkey’s Managing Director Nav Ramiah said:

“It is truly incredible that more than 1,800 businesses have already signed up to Kong in just a few weeks. It shows just how much of an appetite there is for this service.

“Kong is delivering a real solution to small businesses and retailers who want to develop their eCommerce business but don’t have the money to create a truly professional online service.

“There are no restrictions on Kong. Have as many products you like, use as much bandwidth and storage as you need and make use of our incredibly flexible,customisable default theme; all for free.

“We’re confident that more and more businesses will be signing up to this service as word gets out.

Businesses cannot afford to miss out on the opportunity to grow their company online. We invested in Kong because we could see its potential and we’re confident that it will continue to be a huge success.”

Kong has been developed by the team from a former award winning digital agency that
specialised in building Software as a Service platforms, and respected developer Neil Crookes, who is now Technical Director at the start up.

Neil said: “The team’s life-long passion for technology, problem solving and innovation has had a direct influence on the creation of this powerful & easy-to-use software.

“Whether you choose to create and style your store yourself or want to leave it to a team of experts to build your store for you. The team have you covered. And, our free help & sup-port is setting a new standard in the UK.”

Stores created on KONG are 100% Google ‘Mobile Ready’ approved so customers can seamlessly browse and buy straight from their device, phone or tablet.
All credit card and transaction information is protected by the same level of security used by banks – a 256-bit SSL certificate.

And, of course, Parcel Monkey is already integrated so you have the option of benefiting from incredibly low shipping rates exclusively through your store.

Nav added: “Kong is a unique offering which recognises the demands of the marketplace as well as the ever increasing online/eCommerce presence.

“It allows start-ups and smaller retailers, some of whom may already have a presence on the high street, to grow and become much more sustainable.

“As a company, Parcel Monkey is committed to helping smaller businesses succeed. We understand the importance eCommerce plays in developing and growing a business and we are incredibly proud to be offering this valuable service free of charge.”
