They’re also keen to explore areas of joint work based on a shared vision for multimarket commerce that scales: a core set of commerce features easily extended with microservices.

With the new capital, we’ll further establish Saleor as the most composable, multimarket-ready platform available while keeping the dev community at the heart of what we do. We’ll help developers deliver business value for their companies more quickly and reliably than ever."

The brands’ own online stores play an important role in this. Here we see a great fit with Saleor's vision, offering and expertise, which can also help us to further expand our capabilities, for example, in exposing our convenient delivery options to the Saleor checkout.”
