Caribshopper.com, the largest online marketplace connecting Caribbean people living abroad with authentic Caribbean-made products, is partnering with Jamaicans.com, the trailblazing global platform that has showcased the richness of Jamaican culture for decades.
The strategic collaboration promises to strengthen the shared vision of both companies to further connect Jamaicans living abroad with their roots and heritage and bring Caribbean culture closer. Kadion Preston, the Jamaican-born founder and CEO of Caribshopper.com, expressed his excitement about the partnership, saying: "We are thrilled to join forces with Jamaicans.com. Our visions are aligned, and together, we'll create unprecedented value by directly engaging the diaspora to support Caribbean businesses, which assists in strengthening the local economy.
“Caribshopper.com has delivered products to Jamaicans in all 50 of the United States and Canada, no matter how remote their location so that they can experience a true taste of home with just the click of a button. We have partnered with Jamaicans.com because they authentically represent our culture."
Preston founded Caribshopper.com in 2020, and it has quickly become the premier Caribbean online marketplace, hosting over 600 notable brands and more than 7,000 authentic products from Jamaican and Trinidadian merchants. The site delivers authentic Caribbean-made products to the doorsteps of Caribbean people living abroad within 10 days.
Dawson Lewis, the recently appointed CEO of Jamaicans.com, shared similar enthusiasm, stating: "This partnership marks a significant milestone in the growth of Jamaicans.com. Our platform has been a core source of information and community for Jamaicans for over 20 years and we are committed to serving the Jamaican community at home and abroad. We are evolving to make the platform a true hub for the best that Jamaica has to offer.
“We will be featuring new content formats and partnerships that will provide even more value for Jamaicans and deeper connections between Jamaicans living in the island and abroad." This November, Jamaicans.com is hosting its annual Best of Jamaica event, in which thousands of Jamaicans at home and abroad vote on and celebrate the Jamaican personalities and businesses that best demonstrate Jamaican excellence.
Caribshopper.com signed on to support the effort by awarding digital gift cards to 100 Best of Jamaica survey participants. Founded by Xavier Murphy, Jamaicans.com has been an invaluable resource for Jamaicans, providing reliable and accurate content focused on the lives and accomplishments of generations of Jamaicans living abroad.
With over 250,000 unique visitors each month, it is the go-to platform for authentic Jamaican community and culture. A core aspect of this partnership will be Murphy's popular video interview segment "Jamaicans to the World", which shares the experiences of Jamaicans who live in various countries across the world.
Caribshopper.com and Jamaicans.com have planned several other collaborations throughout the year to further enrich the Jamaican experience for their audience.
By coming together, both companies realize their shared vision of serving Jamaicans abroad while propelling each other's growth. The partnership allows both companies to leverage their strengths, and reinforce authentic engagement with Caribbean culture in the homes of Jamaicans across the globe.
