Designed and developed by NIU Ltd, TheTinkShop.com has won the award for the Best eCommerce site (B2C) during this year’s edition of the MCA Business Awards 2019.
Quickly becoming one of the island’s most loved home-grown brands, TheTinkShop.com was recognized and rewarded for raising the bar for user experience, achieving sales growth transitioning from a traditional brick and mortar store to an innovative, online brand where clients can design personalised products from the comfort of their own home. ‘Our goal was to build a website which would deliver an exceptional experience in many areas such as service proposition, site speed, genuinely valuable shopping features, stock management, integration across devices, and the full spectrum of e-commerce best practices. This is our specialization and knowing that our team’s work is helping Malta’s businesses to grow, achieve business success and expand in new markets is extremely rewarding’. Matthew Sammut, Executive Director at NIU Ltd. explained. The online marketplace model has become a disruptive force. The overall business-to-consumer (B2C) eCommerce turnover in Europe was estimated at €602 billion in 2018. According to Eurostat, in Malta, more than six out of 10 internet users made online purchases in 2018 while in the EU, the share of e-shoppers is growing, with gains in the 16 to 24 and 25 to 54 age brackets. ‘By offering great products 24 hours a day the website has allowed us to focus on expanding our product ranges, developing our brand, reducing order fulfilment leads and ultimately, scaling our business. We would like to thank NIU for supporting us throughout this journey and MCA for awarding us with this prestigious title’ Sam Dalli co-founder of TheTinkShop concluded.
