Sendinblue, the leading all-in-one digital marketing platform, today announced its acquisition of three e-commerce marketing companies for more than $47 million: Chatra, Metrilo, and Shopify’s top application for push notifications, PushOwl. The move comes 11 months following its $160 million Series B funding round to drive product expansion and increase growth in the North American market.

Next year, Sendinblue customers will have the ability to easily monitor and analyze the ROI of marketing performance and improve overall sales performance through Metrilo; deploy automated chat notifications based on visitor behavior and respond to questions one-on-one via their website or social channels through live messenger app, Chatra; and deploy website push notifications to consumers to reduce abandoned shopping carts and drive e-commerce growth through PushOwl. Furthermore, these solutions are already present on major CMS-content management systems such as Shopify and Magento, and by integrating them into Sendinblue’s all-in-one digital marketing platform, small and medium-sized businesses will be able to easily scale e-commerce and marketing efforts while driving impactful customer experiences.
“Pandemic-era restrictions prompted many small and medium-sized businesses to pivot – to digitize their marketing efforts and invest in e-commerce strategies,” said Steffen Schebesta, CEO of North America and VP of Corporate Development, Sendinblue. “The global crisis resulted in a shift in consumer purchasing behavior. Online shopping increased by more than 46 percent, and with the acquisition of Chatra, Metrilo and PushOwl, we’re meeting the needs of these businesses.”
With U.S. consumers expected to spend more than $933 billion on e-commerce in 2021, Sendinblue’s expanded offerings will act as a sales accelerator, with enriched, easy-to-use features that will help small and medium-sized businesses digitally compete on a larger scale. Unlike competitors, Sendinblue offers the only all-in-one digital marketing solution that provides small and medium-sized businesses with affordable tools that address the entire customer lifecycle.
