Vietnamese cross-border eCommerce company OpenCommerce Group (OCG) has raised $7 million in Series A funding round led by VNG, a media company that is Vietnam’s first unicorn.
According to media accounts Thursday (Feb. 24), OCG will use the funding to improve on its products and expand around the world.
“Besides Europe and the U.S., we will focus on gaining major market share in China as well as expanding to Southeast Asian countries in 2022,” said Quan Truong , the company’s co-founder and CEO.
Founded in 2020, OCG bills itself as a barrier-free automated cross-border eCommerce platform that lets users start their open dropshipping and print-on-demand businesses through its three products: ShopBase, PrintBase and PlusBase.
OCG says its products also support sellers with offerings that include order management, marketing, shipping and payments. The company says it has helped more than 86,700 sellers in 195 countries set up their stores, generating $670 million in gross merchandise volume.
A spokesperson for VNG says OCG is one of the few Vietnamese companies whose products can compete with major global players in the cross-border eCommerce sector.
