New Delhi, December 9, 2020: Giving a new lease of life to the country's small businesses and individual business owners in taking their businesses online during the pandemic, Gurgaon-based O2O commerce and fintech platform DotPe has launched Digital Showroom. The new-age digital platform will allow them to set up an online store on WhatsApp within 15 seconds and start selling online. DotPe records 2.2 million downloads of Digital Showroom in a span of 3 months from the launch.

Available on Google Play store, Digital Showroom is an initiative by Dotpe which is a technology start-up providing a commerce and payments platform to offline enterprise businesses for driving digital transformation in the way they sell, manage and engage with their customers. The platform has empowered businesses like Mcdonald's, Starbucks, Haldiram's, and thousands more to serve their millions of customers by giving their customers online ordering experience.

While DotPe has multiple products aimed to digitalise the offline business, the newly launched Digital Showroom is for anyone who wants to sell any kind of products or services online through WhatsApp. Users would simply need to enter their Store name, number and address to create their online store. Once the eCommerce store, Digital Showroom will give the users access to a complete solution that provides free catalog listing, marketing, and online payment solutions integrated. They can share their online store easily over WhatsApp or any other messaging platform to start accepting orders online. Furthermore, customers can also make payments online using multiple channels with the money getting credited directly to the merchant's bank account.

Speaking on the launch, Shailaz Nag, CO-founder DotPe said, "Due to the fear of contracting COVID 19 amid the prevailing situation, consumers today strictly prefer shopping online for even their basic needs. Hence, it is important for the offline enterprises and retailers to be online on mobile apps at present and even after, as the pandemic has clearly brought a shift in consumer behaviour. Digital Showroom is the need of the hour and a must-have for all businesses to access customers and sell online to them. Not only will it help in maintaining social distancing, our homegrown digital showroom, which in line with the Government's #MakeinIndia campaign will further drive the #VocalforLocal initiative in the country. Through this platform, we envision empowering over 30 million merchants to connect with over 1.3 billion potential customers. The end-customers find our platform very unique as they don't have the hassles of downloading any app and can simply place orders to businesses using WhatsApp coupled with web-enabled solutions.``

The online showroom is backed by investors like Naspers Fintech, Fosun RZ Capital and infoedge.
