The rise of DropCommerce

Despite the name, there is no fall in sight for DropCommerce

Building a company is rarely a journey from point A to point B to point C. But, sometimes, it’s very much “we wanted to help X do Y, so we built Z.” Take DropCommerce as an example. It’s a Victoria startup that helps business-savvy individuals create sustainable U.S. dropshipping businesses. The company was co-founded by Spencer Bonthoux and Patrick Kelly (yes, that Patrick Kelly) in 2018. The x’s and o’s er… the X and Y? 

"DropCommerce was created because we wanted to help entrepreneurs build businesses online, and we noticed that all of the mainstream options for dropshipping revolved around selling cheap goods from overseas,” Kelly explained. “Even though these options allowed for the merchant to earn some profits, the end customers would ultimately receive inferior products after weeks of waiting.”

Simply put, the co-founders wanted to provide a better experience to merchants, customers, and suppliers, and become the number-one platform for businesses to dropship from North American suppliers along the way. Fast forward to 2022, and DropCommerce is well on its way. By June last year, the firm’s merchant base had grown by 11 percent that month alone, and by 53 percent so far that year. It also registered an additional 25 U.S.-based suppliers. “Stoked on how much the team has been crushing it, and very excited for what's ahead,” Bonthoux said at the time.

“What’s ahead” turned out to be continued growth. By the end of 2022, that merchant base on Shopify grew by 89 percent, while the new suppliers stats entered the triple digits. In crunching the year-end numbers, Bonthoux had a trio of takeaways

  1. A growing number of people are looking to start their own entrepreneurial journeys
  2. Many see the value in U.S. and Canadian-sourced products
  3. The [DropCommerce] team is killing it at helping with those journeys, and at sourcing those products.

He then teased that the team is going into this year as hungry as ever and has some exciting new updates on the way this quarter. Perhaps those are Point D.
