EliCommerce - Los Angeles, CA

Posted 23 days ago

One of the biggest online marketplaces like Amazon have trained consumers to expect products delivered to their doorsteps within 1-2 days at no extra cost. As a result, millions of sellers on other marketplaces are falling behind, unable to cost-effectively deliver products to their customers within 1-2 days. EliCommerce's mission is to enable any seller, regardless of size, to delight their customers with fast and cost-effective fulfillment.

Who We Are

We are e-commerce experts, profitability professionals, and marketing mavens, intent on changing the way brands interact with Amazon.

EliCommerce also has access to an extremely strong shipping contract with UPS and FedEx, allowing its clients to ship products for 1/5th the price they are paying for shipping now. (This is a no brainer for clients/brands)
