VANCOUVER and SAN DIEGO, CA, Nov. 7, 2019 /CNW/ - Phivida Holdings Inc. (CSE: VIDA OTCQX: PHVAF) ("Phivida" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has teamed up with Grobo, a plant growing system manufacturer, as its first third-party seller on Phivida's e-commerce platform, Bloomgroove.com ("Bloomgroove").
Bloomgroove is a custom-built e-commerce platform that offers premium smoking gear, plant-growing equipment, and other accessories from verified, reputable manufacturers.
Bloomgroove's unique seller module allows producers to set up independent storefronts and have complete control over creating and updating listings, making sales and tracking orders. To the knowledge of Phivida, no other platform in the niche currently offers any similar online selling services.
David Moon, President of Wikala.com Inc., the publisher of Bloomgroove, commented: "We are excited to partner up with such an innovative and passionate young company. Grobo's team is devoted to creating healthy, environmentally-friendly plant growing systems, and Bloomgroove's unique seller module provides them with direct access to the accessories niche. We believe Bloomgroove's capabilities will also provide vendors with more exposure in the marketplace."
Grobo offers its plant-growing systems through select distribution channels, including Bloomgroove and Amazon.
"We are thrilled to be launching on Bloomgroove in both Canada and the US. At Grobo, we strive to design incredible user experiences for cannabis consumers, and Bloomgroove does just that. David and his team have developed a trustworthy marketplace that is easy to use for both customers and merchants. We look forward to building a long term relationship together," said Bjorn Dawson, Grobo CEO and Co-founder.
Bloomgroove's seller module is currently in beta. The Company expects that it will soon announce the release date for the open version, which will bring Bloomgroove a step closer to becoming an international online marketplace for independent sellers. The Company is inviting vendors to test the platform's seller functionalities and set up their independent stores on Bloomgroove.com.
