ShipStation and Mercado Libre Partnership Expands Opportunities
“We are extremely excited to kick off our partnership with ShipStation, offering U.S. merchants a gateway into one of the world’s fastest-growing ecommerce regions,” said Mariano Migues, CBT Supervisor, Mercado Libre.
Recently, the Latin American marketplace has seen tremendous growth due to the coronavirus pandemic which also accelerated its plan to add more consumer and fast-moving items to its inventory.
Similar to the rapid growth in North American and Europe, the pandemic’s stay-at-home orders have driven the adoption of online commerce in Latin America as well which should provide further growth opportunities, especially in an underserved market.
“We are thrilled to partner with Mercado Libre to offer ShipStation merchants new and exciting opportunities to sell into the Latin America region,” said Krish Iyer, Head of Industry Relations, ShipStation.
“Mercado Libre hosts the largest online commerce and payments ecosystem in Latin America and is one of the most respected names in ecommerce globally. This partnership will give merchants on the ShipStation platform quick and seamless access to one of the world’s fastest-growing ecommerce regions,” Iyer adds.
Through this new partnership, ShipStation U.S. merchants gain access to over 600 million Latin American buyers on the Mercado Libre marketplace, which processes over one million sales per day.
ShipStation said the collaboration will officially kick off on July 15th, 2020.
