We want every shop on the internet to keep up with the big marketplaces. These marketplaces generate around 35% of their revenues through cross-selling by leveraging their very large inventory and data processing recommenders.Smaller online shops don't have this advantage. We don’t think that's fair - that's why we founded 35up. That's what the 35up platform is here to change.
