OppDoor, headquartered in Singapore, has positioned itself as a technology-enabled services company catering specifically to business-to-business relationships in the e-commerce space.
How OppDoor Provides Holistic Solutions for Global Expansion?
OppDoor sets itself apart by offering a range of services crucial for global business expansion, including market entry analysis, demand mapping, inventory management, cross-border logistics, and tax considerations. The startup claims to be operational in key markets such as the US, the UK, Canada, Mexico, Germany, Singapore, Japan, and Australia.
The company emphasizes its role in guiding brands through all necessary business processes for seamless global expansion.
According to OppDoor's website, global expansion involves understanding local markets, customer behaviours, taxation, compliance, and building extensive partnerships with third-party vendors. OppDoor positions itself as the solution to these challenges, relieving brands of the heavy lifting required for global operations.
"Basically, the startup will handhold brands through all the business processes required for global expansion. “Expanding globally requires understanding of local markets and customer behaviours, taxation and compliance, extensive partnerships with third party vendors. We do all the heavy lifting to provide seamless expansion,” according to the company’s website.
OppDoor's Comprehensive Suite of Services
OppDoor's website describes its services as a "comprehensive suite" that spans a brand's entire lifecycle, from inception to exit. The company offers both fully managed operations and business advisory services, aiming to be a one-stop solution for brands seeking to scale their operations globally.
The comoany's website adds that OppDoor’s services “span a brand's complete lifecycle, from birth to exit. Hence, we provide both fully managed operations and business advisory services.”
Crucial Timing Post-Flipkart Era
The launch of OppDoor is particularly significant as it comes five years after the sale of Flipkart to Walmart in 2018 by Binny Bansal and Sachin Bansal (unrelated). The five-year non-compete clause in the Walmart deal concluded in 2023, paving the way for Binny Bansal to re-enter the e-commerce arena with OppDoor. Unlike Flipkart, OppDoor focuses on facilitating the growth of businesses directly, rather than being a consumer-facing internet firm.
Amazon-Focused Global Expansion
OppDoor's initial focus is on e-commerce companies in the United States, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Germany, Singapore, Japan, and Australia, with India not featuring in its current plans. The company positions itself as a provider of fully managed Amazon services, citing the platform as "an endless opportunity."
"We Help Amazon Brands Boost Conversions and Expand Globally," says OppDoor's website.
OppDoor notes that 63 percent of Amazon Sellers who embraced global expansion witnessed a surge in sales, and brands with a multi-region presence achieved three times higher exit multiples compared to those selling in only one or two Amazon regions.
Three State Ventures Background
Registered in Singapore and incorporated in May 2021, OppDoor was previously known as Three State Ventures Pte Ltd. Three State Ventures is Binny Bansal's venture capital firm, also operating from Singapore, with a history of backing startups across various sectors in India, including Curefoods and Scapia.
Binny Bansal's OppDoor marks a strategic re-entry into the e-commerce ecosystem, focusing on facilitating global expansion for businesses and promising a new era of growth and success in the competitive digital marketplace.
