Fn Facts

The name Shoppertise is a combination of "shopping" and "expertise". The name positions us as the online meeting place for all shopping experts -- both merchants and customers -- and illustrates our commitment to be shopping experts. We aim to be a place for merchants to "meet" and be "discovered" by the right consumers.

Shoppertise was founded in early 2014 by CK Yap and Christine Liew as a cloud-based, mobile-first eCommerce platform.

As at June 2016, we support over 600+ creative entrepreneurs in our Shoppertise community.
