What is ShopZio?

ShopZio is a Digital Marketplace powered by IMC_di that enables vendors to approve buyers, showcase their full assortment of products/pricing, and capture sales year-round. More than 30,000 buyer accounts have been created on ShopZio and hundreds of brands are currently featured on the platform.

What Exactly is our Offer?

For IMC exhibitors, the ShopZio Digital Marketplace will be free of charge through the end of the year.  IMC_di is eliminating one-time setup/configuration fees AND all monthly user fees through December 31, 2020. Based on order volume, this could save thousands to tens of thousands of dollars for the remainder of this year, and gain access to a world-class e-commerce tool that is open to buyers year-round.

What Will it Cost After the Free Period?

As of January first, 2021, IMC_di will likely implement a transactional fee. Any future fees in 2021 will be significantly discounted for IMC’s exhibiting vendors. We will share more details later, but we anticipate low single digit fees for IMC exhibitors.

Is Set-Up Complicated?

IMC-di has a dedicated Customer Success team that will make onboarding and training easy. Onboarding time can vary based on the size and complexity of your product catalog, but typically after a couple of calls over the course of a couple of weeks, you will be able to load/update products, manage customers and capture orders autonomously.

What is the Timing of Onboarding?

After you’ve filled out our onboarding survey , our Customer Success team will reach out to go over the details needed for onboarding.  The process for readying data generally takes a couple of weeks. Uploading and selling can happen within four weeks and it depends upon the complexity of the data.
