We’re thrilled to announce that Yotpo has been carefully selected by Salesforce to be a trusted B2C Commerce Quick Launch Program partner for reviews and visual UGC.

The direct-to-consumer industry is booming. Brands that react quickly and embrace innovation are thriving. In the wake of this evolution, many enterprise companies are making the shift to D2C, maintaining an edge and ensuring agility by working closely with technology partners in the industry.

Yotpo provides thousands of best-in-class brands — including Salesforce Commerce Cloud brands like Stride Rite, Burton, GoPro, and Stila Cosmetics — with the tools to accelerate growth and to create smarter, more engaging shopper experiences.

“Given the wide range of clients we serve, from digital natives to established super-brands, we value this partnership with Salesforce as it accelerates our ability to develop superior solutions for modern commerce challenges — whatever might come our way,” said Will Schnabel, SVP Business Development at Yotpo.

What is the Quick Launch Program?

The B2C Commerce Quick Launch Program, from Salesforce Commerce Cloud, lowers total cost of ownership (TCO) and enables brands to launch faster, with a prescriptive solution for essential eCommerce use cases. The Quick Launch Program makes it easy to integrate with bundled solutions from reviews, payment, taxes, and more, so merchants can quickly and cost-effectively launch cutting edge websites. With 77.3% of shoppers citing peer validation as a major factor in their decision to make a purchase, Commerce Cloud identified reviews as an essential aspect of eCommerce success. Yotpo has been handpicked as their reviews and visual UGC provider of choice. It is one of eight solutions included in the program.

The Benefits for Salesforce Commerce Cloud Merchants

Yotpo‘s LINK Cartridge, developed in partnership with CQL, is certified as an official Quick Launch Program solution and contains use cases and quality measures specifically designed to enable customers to implement quickly and cost-effectively. Yotpo features, including our Reviews and Star Ratings widgets and Automated Review Request Emails, will automatically be configured with the new cartridge. The power of user-generated content doesn’t stop there. Merchants using Yotpo have access to a variety of high-converting features, including Q&A, Visual UGC, and more, that can easily be added to their Salesforce Commerce Cloud storefronts. Our new and improved certified cartridge has been rigorously vetted by Salesforce Commerce Cloud to ensure all merchants can accelerate growth with a reliable and high-quality solution that is deeply integrated with the platform.

“We’ve seen a renaissance in commerce in recent years led by eye-opening innovation and truly disruptive thinking when it comes to consumer engagement,” said Jonah Rudman, Director of Alliances at Salesforce Commerce Cloud. “These reflect the traits of an ideal partner for Salesforce, and this enhanced integration with Yotpo is indicative of the exciting advancements that lie ahead.”
