Shipup a annoncĂ© le 30 juin 2020 une levĂ©e de fonds de 6 millions (SĂ©rie A) afin d’ouvrir des bureaux Ă  New York et de recruter 45 personnes d’ici un an.

Shipup a été co-fondé en 2016 par 3 anciens de HEC Paris et Centrale Paris, passés par Drivy, Rocket Internet, Casper et Dashlane afin de proposer une expérience post-achat irréprochable pour les e-commerçants.

Shipup est un SaaS qui suit en temps rĂ©el les commandes et les livraisons des e-commerçants pour crĂ©er une expĂ©rience post-achat brandĂ©e, rassurante et irrĂ©prochable (notifications proactives en temps rĂ©el, pages de suivi personnalisĂ©es, enquĂȘtes de satisfaction Ă  chaud Ă  la livraison...). GrĂące Ă  Shipup, commander en ligne devient moins stressant, les acheteurs en ligne sont plus satisfaits, ils appellent moins le SAV et reviennent acheter davantage.

Shipup travaille avec plus de 200 marques en Europe et en Amérique du Nord dont certaines des plus belles success stories du e-commerce (Cheerz, Birchbox, Withings, Feed., Le Petit Ballon, Respire, Aime, Na-Kd, Ssense, Ysé, A.P.C. ...) mais aussi des grands comptes plus traditionnels (Leclerc, Carrefour, Intermarché, Go Sport, Yves Rocher...).

C'est aujourd'hui une équipe de 30 personnes, en pleine croissance (+40 recrutements à venir) qui s'est donné pour mission de révolutionner l'expérience post-achat. Leur credo : move fast and break things.
