To date, the platform ShopToys365 has 1.589 active seller companies and 16.453 active buyers, with an average of 155 new buyers joining each month.
Experts say that B2B e-commerce is “exploding”, driven largely by a shift in how retail buyers discover new products and vendors. With recent research indicating that 67 percent of the buyer’s journey is completed online, toy suppliers must too strategize about their online and mobile presence to remain relevant.
Alan Dickey is one of these buyers. Alan is the Retail Manager/GMM at Farah Experiences LLC. Farah Experiences manages and operates Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld and Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi including a total of 22 themed gift shops plus seven hotels, a beach club, a golf course, shopping malls, etc.
Alan says, “The idea is to make Yas Island the Orlando of the Middle East. To do that I need to continually source new toy suppliers and hot products. ShopToys365 does that for me. I can find hundreds of global toy manufacturers that I can work with to create a great consumer buying experience at our theme parks.”
