EKM partners with Avasam to provide a UK-based dropshipping solution to launch & scale ecommerce businesses in the UK

Avasam EKM

It’s no secret that the world of ecommerce has seen a rapid rise in demand in recent years, from both customers and shop owners alike, to keep providing vital products in an ever-changing landscape.

Online sales now make up over one-third of the retail market share in the UK. EKM sellers are discovering that enriching their shop with extra products – via dropshipping suppliers like Avasam – can result in additional traffic to their storefronts, leading to bigger basket sizes and additional orders.

With supply chains stretched and costs such as fuel increasing, streamlining fulfilment has never been more important. A fantastic way to do this is by listing additional inventory from dropshipping suppliers, and is even more efficient when both the shop and the supplier are both based in the UK – such as EKM and Avasam.

Dropshipping allows you to sell more, without the additional manual work – the order is simply passed to the supplier for fulfilment. Amongst the many benefits of doing this is the automatic synchronisation between EKM, Avasam and the supplier to ensure that there are fewer chances that listings show as out of stock.

So if you’re looking to scale up your business, with little cash outlay, then partner up with EKM and Avasam today.

“We’re delighted to be partnering with Avasam to enable our shop owners to boost their inventory and unleash the potential of their shops. With our passion for helping UK businesses thrive and enabling entrepreneurs to do something they love, we know this partnership will help make that dream of starting an online business even more of a reality.

It’s now never been easier to create a sustainable dropshipping business in the UK when you team EKM with Avasam.”

– Mark Gilbertson, Business Development Manager, EKM

“We built Avasam with the goal of removing the pain points traditionally associated with DropShipping, such as unreliable suppliers; manual processes and the need for bespoke system integrations so that professional sellers and online retailers can expand their product inventory simply, securely and reliably.  

We are super excited to launch our partnership with EKM enabling sellers to source and DropShip products from our marketplace of verified suppliers and benefit from selling on EKM to take control and run their own eCommerce business with support based out of the UK.”

 – Mustafa Khanbhai, Chief Revenue Officer, Avasam.
