The online community is getting bigger and wider nowadays, and with the help of the rampant pace of social media and technological enhancements such as hi-tech gadgets and online apps to simplify business, it comes to no surprise that even online shopping is now a trend. Entrepreneurs that delved into the eCommerce industry are currently trying to market their brand and products or services they offer the best and most efficient way they can.
Last year, Globe myBusiness has established a solid partnership with Shopify - the number one eCommerce platform in the world. With Shopify enabling business owners to have their own online shop and business eCommerce management platform, this gives opportunity to expand their business without the hassle. This last quarter of the year, they will be offering new add-ons for Globe myBusiness customers through their partnerships with logistics services (Xend), design and set-up services (Ropo), digital advertising services (AdSpark) and payment services.

Aligned with the Globe purpose, Globe myBusiness is definitely making businesses flourish. Their partnership with Shopify, Xend, Ropo and AdSpark strengthens the business customers by creating an avenue for them to feature their products in a more diversified digital platform.
