Braintree, Essex, United Kingdom., December 21, 2018 — Xpediator (AIM: XPD), a leading provider of e-commerce and freight management services across the UK and Europe, is pleased to announce that online consumer marketplace Flubit.com has chosen EshopWedrop, Xpediator’s eCommerce delivery solution, for recommended status to manage their customers’ international cross border deliveries.
Launched in 2012, Flubit.com is the largest UK-owned digital marketplace, hosting a catalogue of over 70 million consumer products.
In July 2018, the prominent blockchain technology group, MonetaryUnit, acquired Flubit.com for an undisclosed sum. Since then, Flubit.com has sought to expand beyond the UK into new markets. Through the agreement with Flubit.com, EshopWedrop will be listed as the recommended cross-border delivery service for international customers on the Flubit.com platform.
EshopWedrop will begin by providing international delivery solutions for Flubit.com’s clients into Albania, Belarus, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania and the USA. Visitors to the website from outside the UK are invited to select which of these countries they are from, before being prompted to register for a free EshopWedrop account through which purchased goods will be delivered.
EshopWedrop is a B2C offering that overlays existing B2B groupage service lines run by Xpediator’s freight forwarding division, Delamode. The service enables consumers in Europe, as well as the USA, to make online purchases from Flubit.com and have their goods delivered quickly and at a price acceptable to consumers.
CEO of Flubit.com, Bertie Stephens said:
“EshopWedrop’s ability to offer an international delivery solution at a significantly reduced cost to consumers makes it a natural choice for our platform as we look to continue to work with the best merchants in the country to bring the best deals to more customers around the world.”
Xpediator, CIO and COO of eCommerce, Michael Grange, commented:
“To be chosen by Flubit.com reflects the strength and reliability of our EshopWedrop model. Flubit.com is growing rapidly, both in terms of sales and geographically, and we are delighted to be able to support them. Flubit.com is also well known for accepting payment in crypto-currencies, which fits with our ability to deliver to the USA, the largest market currently for crypto-currency funds.”
