Today, we have some important news to share with you all…
Zibbet has been acquired!
Whilst we can’t say just yet who the acquirer is (more to come from them soon!), we can say that they are one of the largest companies in our industry.
If you’re an existing seller… What does this mean for you?
On July 3rd, Zibbet will be temporarily closed. This means you will not be able to access the Zibbet Admin after this date, so we recommend you begin the process of making copies of any orders, products etc that you want to keep. We understand that this will come as a shock and is extremely disruptive to your business, and for that we are truly sorry. However, this is important as it allows the acquirer to make necessary upgrades to the platform and get it ready for a re-launch.
You can export your active products and orders by going to “Zibbet Marketplace > Shop Settings > Export Data” in your Zibbet Admin. You’ll be emailed a CSV file.
Prorated refunds, for unused time in your subscription period, will be issued upon request. You have until July 25th, 2021 to request one by emailing email@example.com.
On a personal note, I want to thank each and every one of you for trusting us with your small business. It’s been a pleasure to watch you grow. Zibbet has been my life’s work (12+ years!), and I’m proud of what our team has achieved over the years. I also want to give a shout-out to Andrew Gray, co-founder of Zibbet. Without his support, Zibbet almost certainly would not have made it this far! If you’d like to keep in touch, and find out what’s next for me, you can follow me on Twitter as I have announced it there.
The future of Zibbet is VERY bright, and we’re confident it is being left in great hands that can take it as far as we dreamed it could go.
If you have any questions at all, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll get back to you ASAP.
Thank you again, and bye for now!
— Jonathan Peacock (Co-founder, and CEO of Zibbet).
