France has more than 157,000 e-commerce sites, according to Fevad. So many companies that ship packages. To help them see more clearly in the multitude of existing carriers, Jean-Baptiste Renié created in 2008 EnvoiMoinsCher.com, a price comparison dedicated to the shipment of parcels.
To determine the best transport company, e-merchants select the most important criterion – price, delivery times, collection of the package at home or at a physical point, etc. – and the platform compares the offers. While it is possible to perform this comparison manually, the majority of the comparisons are performed automatically via the API ofSendMoinsCher.com.
The company now works with around twenty historical players in the sector such as UPS, FedEx and DHL, but the company is already considering expanding to new start-ups specializing in same-day or even within the hour delivery. .
On the economic model side, EnvoiMoinsCher.com charges a commission of 10% to 20% and claims 10,000 active customers each month. With this positioning, the company has set itself the objective of exceeding 20 million euros in turnover in 2015. More details with Jean-Baptiste Renié, founder of EnvoiMoinsCher.com.
