Lorem Acquires Storetasker to Become the #1 Shopify Expert Marketplace
For the past 3 years, our team has been hard at work creating a new breed of marketplace for hiring digital experts. A marketplace where customers don’t have to sift through scores of unvetted freelancer profiles to find the needle in the haystack and then wonder whether the price will be fair or if the quality of work will be high. A marketplace where freelancers spend less time submitting proposals and engaging in bidding wars against their peers and more time getting paid to do the work they love.
As we’ve built our marketplace, we’ve been amazed by the explosive growth of the Shopify platform. From 84,000 merchants in 2013 to more than 800,000 in 2019, Shopify has proven itself to be a key player in the future of commerce.
A few months back, we got the chance to meet Jon, the founder of Storetasker. It was immediately clear to us that he shared our vision of a better marketplace and had built a thriving platform based on the same core values. We saw a big opportunity to join forces and create the #1 marketplace for hiring Shopify experts.
That’s why we are very, VERY excited to announce that we have acquired Storetasker and that as of today we will be running both platforms under the same roof. Storetasker will become our primary marketplace for hiring Shopify experts, and Lorem will remain our marketplace for everything else (WordPress, Squarespace, Wix, HubSpot, etc).
This is an exciting time. We’re thrilled to join forces with Storetasker and to have Jon joining our company as an advisor. Jon and his team have accomplished something truly remarkable, and we fully intend to honor their vision by continuing to grow Storetasker into the world’s top destination for hiring and working with the best e-commerce experts.
Please join us in celebrating this amazing achievement and in welcoming Jon and the entire Storetasker community to the Lorem family!
