WebShopApps opens in the US

Posted by: Karen Thursday, February 13th, 2014

As normal, life is busy at WebShopApps.  I’ve sat back tonight under orders from our new Partnership & Marketing Director Daniel to give you an update on where we are right now. Now, I could give you a pumped-up blog about how great we are, and god bless america, etc. But I’m not, I’m going to speak from my heart, because thats all I know how to do.

As many of you may know, I started out writing extensions back in 2008 when I was on sabbatical from my work in London.  My husband was an eBay Powerseller, and had a small eCommerce store hosted online.  I fell into Magento, and then, well, it took over my life.  In 2013 I made the decision to move my family to the states, we had a lot of business in the US and I wanted to get back my evenings by getting employees in the timezone where we were so active.

A New DawnSo here we are, we moved to a great city Dublin, Ohio. I came to the states to work, and thats why I sited the office here, in the American Midwest, it’s where the work gets done, no nonsense or hype.

Our aim here is simple: we are working hard to help you the merchant get the best out of your eCommerce store in terms of shipping rate calculation logic.  And we are here for the Web Design Agencies and Independent Developers to give you the support you need so you can get on with the job of creating great sites.

Some people think WebShopApps is a big business, well let me tell you it’s not. Each and every team member makes his mark, we work hard, and we care about each and every one of our customers and their success.

We are fully invested here in our staff, we now have offices in the UK and US, we support home-grown staff, we train graduates, and we are a diverse and, I hope, interesting group. We have 5 staff attending Magento Imagine and I’d encourage you to come chat to us, come see this great young team and the passion they have.

If you are looking for a shipping solution for Magento I would encourage you to talk to us, come support the WebShopApps story, and help us help you into the future. It is only with your support we can continue to innovate and evolve this world of shipping. Come understand why we are the #1 shipping extension provider in the world, and the only extension company that is truly innovating shipping.  You decide our future, and I hope you choose us.

My promise to you: well, I’ll continue hopefully to keep it real, to think about the small guy, to respect you and help you concentrate on what you do best.

Oh, and I’ll finish on the fact I’ve not yet got my evenings back, my husband reckons I might be a workaholic, I prefer to call it driven 😉
