Shoppote is Cameroon’s first O2O (Online-2-Offline) platform for offline Retail Stores. Shoppote acts a digital user interface that sits on-top of the physical shopping world to help both offline retail stores and shoppers/consumers connect seamlessly.
With Shoppote, Shoppers per their location can find products, price reference and discounts/offers running at offline stores in real-time. Retailers on the other end use Shoppote as a marketing platform to attract new customers, repeat foot traffic and reward loyal customers visiting their retail stores (increase sales/revenue).
Shoppote mobile platform was launched in January 2017 (Bootstrapped by the founding members). We executed a public beta for three months with 10 offline retail stores. In the last 8 months we have successfully onboard 200+ offline retail partners spread across the cities of Douala and Yaoundé and grow our shoppers community to 15000+ across both cities. Our class focus has been consumer electronics, Home Appliances, Kitchen Appliances and Home Decor with plans to add Restauration and Fashion category in the next phase of our growth.
Current team size comprises of 8 people spread across functions. We are looking for a first round of funding, to improve our human resource to fuel growth and scale across other cities and regions in Cameroon. We are targeting to onboard 2000 partner stores by September ’18 with a least 40% repeated paying partners.
