By adding the point of sale solution to its offerings, DotPe further expands its digital ecosystem for the small, medium and large offline merchants.

Offline-to-online (O2O) commerce platform DotPe has announced the acquisition of billing POS Rista. The acquisition further strengthens its bouquet of offerings to the offline merchants along with an online store, marketing suite, payments  and integrated delivery.

Based in Gurugram, DotPe is a tech powered, multi-channel commerce platform for seven million merchants in the country, including both large and small business enterprises. With D2C commerce expected to be a $100 billion business by 2026, the platform is leading the way with a host of local city brands to National and International brands like Mcdonalds, 24 Seven and Taco Bell in its portfolio.

With the pandemic accelerating the paradigm shift to digital commerce, offline merchants had to take the quantum leap to connect with their customers through a digital channel. DotPe claims to be offering a convenient way of getting an online presence for their business, which helped them grow digitally with ease and at minimal cost .

Growing rapidly at 25 percent M-o-M, DotPe has managed to process 15 million orders since its inception. The company aims to introduce more solutions to ensure even the smallest businesses have access to technology that can help them scale their business. By having Rista’s team onboard, DotPe will be able to deliver the best end-to-end commerce experience to both small merchants and large brands. The wide range of innovative solutions offered by Rista combined with DotPe’s heavy distribution will help in democratising technology and re-imagining the way businesses work.

Rista is a billing POS provider in the country adopted by 1500 merchants. With this collaboration, DotPe will work with Rista to expand the universe of merchants to 1 lakh in the next one year.

The coming together of DotPe and Rista further strengthens our business offerings.”
