Magento and PayPal, both eBay Inc. companies, have announced its partnership with BOXPARK, the world’s first pop up mall, for a revolutionary digital concept, to offer a seamless omnichannel commerce experience for retailers and consumers. BOXPARK MARKET PLACE expands on the existing Shoreditch pop up mall to include an integrated iPad POS system, online market place for brands, and mobile application enabling retailers to engage consumers across multiple points and increase BOXPARK inventory to online and mobile audiences via a Magento-powered storefront. PayPal will power the initiative’s transactions through cashless transactions, both online and offline, for BOXPARK customers.
“BOXPARK MARKET PLACE is a revolutionary concept. Omnichannel solutions have been rolled out on High Street, but until now small independent retailers have been unable to offer costly omnichannel solutions,” said Roger Wade, CEO BOXPARK. “BOXPARK MARKET PLACE allows small independents to have a sophisticated omnichannel solution with little or no set up costs. They just need an iPad or tablet and they are up and running.”
“PayPal and BOXPARK are leveling the playing field for independent retailers, giving them the chance to compete and win,” said Narik Patel, director of mobile merchant services PayPal UK. “We’re enabling seamless, secure payments for BOXPARK retailers across all their sales channels – web, mobile and in-store.”
“BOXPARK MARKETPLACE is a fantastic example of how merchants are innovating using Magento’s flexible and open commerce platform,” said Tobias Hartmann, interim president of eBay Enterprise. “We are excited to partner with BOXPARK and PayPal to offer a complete omnichannel experience for new and growing brands both at Shoreditch and on BOXPARK MARKETPLACE.”
BOXPARK is currently offering retailers a 20% commission only fee structure that includes:
- 300 sq. ft. BOXPARK SHOREDITCH storefront
- £25,000 shopfit
- Ecommerce store on BOXPARK MARKET PLACE
- POS system
- Consumer app with scan to share or buy
- 100k digital database
- Event space
BOXPARK Shoreditch is a retail revolution - carefully situated in the heart of East London’s fashion and art district, two floors of sixty shipping containers began as the World’s First Pop Up mall. Bursting with innovative designers, authentic food shops and talented artists and performers, BOXPARK Shoreditch has become ‘The Home of the Pop Up.’

But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them?
