The founders at Sellfy were not so sometime ago. They were working hard to create custom WordPress themes and plugins. However when they finally created one, they were looking to sell it. They kept head hunting for solutions to sell it online. Things became complex and hard for them. The time to hunt for the solution was more than that was required to create their first product. They were in that enlightening moment. This was something that they could solve for themselves and for others who are trying to sell digital things. So they created Sellfy, a simple e-commerce solution to sell online.

Sellfy was starred 1.5 years ago by Maris Dagis and Kristaps Alks, two geeks from Riga, Latvia. Maris says, “The idea came from our previous business and we thought we can offer much better solution compared to others.” Sellfy did raise an angel round and startups are always looking for more capital. Hope investors you are listening!
To wind up Maris says,
“I think there is still a lot to do to simplify selling for different content types. Also we wan’t to make our merchants more productive and successful in selling by giving them better tools to engage with their customers. So these are the areas of our attention right now.”
