This expansion builds on the overwhelming success of ShangBy.com's jewelry offering. Shanghai is known for its quality pearls and semiprecious stones and Steve Bell, ShangBy.com founder and CEO, plans to expand ShangBy.com into additional markets in Shanghai with different types of goods and around the globe in markets like Thailand, India, Morocco, Turkey and Argentina.
"There are unique markets and cultures around the world that the average American shopper never gets to be a part of," said Bell. "ShangBy.com is utilizing live webcast to make online shopping an experience, rather than a chore. Technology is shrinking the globe and ShangBy.com is all about exposing cultures and making connections for people."
