The brand ambassadors - Ms. Priyamani, National Award-Winning Actress and her husband Mr. Mustufa Raj, a prominent businessman - kick-started the Official Launch in Flora Inn Hotel, Dubai, by releasing the new ad campaign.

"I can totally relate to people who have just shifted abroad and badly miss shopping from India. ShoppRe makes it possible to have your favorite Indian goods delivered right to your doorsteps," said Priyamani.

Mr. V.A. Hassan - CEO of Flora Group of Hotels & SBK Real-Estate, Dubai - the major investor of the company, launched the website.

"I have been in Dubai for over 4 decades. I have seen the huge demand for Indian products like fashion, food, etc. which are popular everywhere, but not easily accessible or are extremely overpriced," he said.

Saira Hassan and Nikkitha Shanker founded ShoppRe in October 2016. So far, they have fulfilled orders worth INR 40 million for 15,000+ customers, consisting not only Indians, but also a huge number of Non-Indians; and has shipped to 80+ countries. Their expertise in customs and regulations renders access to even special items like Ayurvedic Products.

"We wanted to resolve two major pain-points: Most of the Indian sellers don't offer international shipping and several Indian websites don't accept International Card payments," said Saira.

"Our mission is to leverage our passion for service and superior shipping expertise to delight our customers with every shipment from ShoppRe," said Nikkitha.
