Zenstores seals £400K seed investment
Zenstores — the cloud-based shipping platform for online sellers — has sealed £400k in late seed investment led by Downing Ventures. The Zenstores platform consolidates orders from e-commerce platforms and marketplaces such as Amazon, eBay and Shopify, then automates the dispatch process with Royal Mail and other couriers.
In a statement issued yesterday (8 March), Zenstores said it will use the investment to “add new integrations with marketplaces and couriers while scaling its userbase in 2016”.
“Over the last year we’ve proved that using Zenstores removes the shackles of time-consuming operational tasks and frees online sellers to grow their businesses,” said Tom Palmer, Zenstores Co-Founder and CEO. “This investment puts the foundations in place for us to make Zenstores available to every online seller in the UK and beyond.”
Founded in January 2015, Bristol-headquartered Zenstores is backed by Webstart Bristol and Downing Ventures.
Zentores said that it is rolling out support for e-commerce platforms WooCommerce and BigCommerce in Q2, while integrations with couriers ParcelForce and DPD will also complete early in 2016.
