Mercarto wants to give everyone the opportunity of starting their own business via their new MercartoeCommerce platform which creates an end-to-end online retail business with no risk and no cost.

Founded by entrepreneur Sean Brown, the free, one-stop platform aims to do all the hard work of building a business for you; taking care of web design, sourcing, storage, delivery and payment, with more than 100 stores already created through Mercarto, following a soft launch earlier this year.

MercartoMercarto manages every aspect of ordering and customer service, with store owners taking up to 40% profit on products sold. All users have to do is name their store, select the products they wish to stock, and launch – they then drive sales by marketing the store through their own networks.  

Sean explained: 

“The real 'why' of Mercarto is to give everyone the opportunity of starting their own business. We want to put entrepreneurship and business ownership in the hands of absolutely anyone, with no barriers. 

“Where else in the digital space can you start a business and start a movement with no initial investment of money or time? Whether you’re a uni student, a single parent wanting to make some cash on the side or an aspiring business owner aiming to create an eCommerce empire, Mercarto creates that opportunity.” 

Sean’s previous venture, Hatch, an influencer marketing platform, was brought in house by high-profile social Mercartomedia marketing agency, Social Chain.

Mercarto plans to enable sellers to upload their own products to the ‘Mercarto Seller Network’, boosting sales and visibility by having their own products placed in other Mercarto stores. The owner is then be responsible for fulfilling all orders.  

Sean is working with the Tech Manchester programme, a not-for-profit project backed by hosting firm UKFast to support up-and-coming technology businesses. Mercarto is the first business to sign up to take space in UKFast’s FastForward incubator for tech startups at its newly expanded campus.
