Mercaux’s platform is live with a number of top global retailers, and is trusted by companies such as, United Colours of Benetton, Nike and French Connection.

The retail landscape in China is changing rapidly and brands are increasingly allocating resources to reinvent brick-and-mortar experiences to cater to fast-changing consumer needs. We are confident that Mercaux’s offering can play an important role in this retail transformation in China.”
Olga Kotsur, Co-Founder and CEO of Mercaux, – said: “With a massive digitally native population, entering the Chinese market was always important for Mercaux.
