TikTok Shop Targets Growth for In-App Shopping with CommerceHub
CommerceHub powers connections for thousands of brands to sell on the fast-growing social commerce platform
To provide an exceptional in-app shopping experience for its one billion active users, and to accelerate the growth of TikTok Shop, the social media platform is implementing ecommerce solutions from CommerceHub, one of the world’s largest commerce networks and provider of software solutions connecting supply, demand, and delivery for retailers and brands globally. By implementing CommerceHub’s unified commerce platform including ChannelAdvisor, TikTok will now have the ability to access tens of thousands of brands on CommerceHub’s vast network that want to sell and market their products in the popular TikTok Shop.
TikTok Shop is an innovative new shopping feature in the app which enables merchants, brands, and creators to showcase and sell products directly on TikTok through in-feed videos, TikTok LIVEs, and product showcase tab. TikTok Shop leverages the app’s ability to cultivate emerging fashion and shopping trends to promote and sell products to TikTok’s massive user base. Thanks to the platform’s powerful algorithm and cultural relevance, TikTok gives brands enormous advertising and selling potential to an audience of consumers ready for the next big thing.
