YOUR RESEARCH TEAM APPLIED THE FOLLOWING STRATEGY:
We identified the companies above as direct competitors to SamCart because they all directly mention offering features for creating simplified, single-product web pages/checkout. Additionally, WooCommerce and Volusion were listed in an article titled "Best Ecommerce Platform for One Product in 2019." We didn't include any other platforms listed in that article because they are not U.S.-based companies and it was requested that we find such. This link is to the article describing Squarespace's focus on simple, single-product web pages/checkout and this link is to the article describing 3dCart's focus on the same. The information that we found about the companies' founding dates, headquarters, employee counts, and customer counts came primarily from their "About" pages or similar. The funding round data we found came from the source Crunchbase. One data point we couldn't find was WooCommerce's total funding. We looked for that information using three strategies. First, we checked the source Crunchbase, which routinely publishes such information about companies, but didn't for this company. Second, we looked for any articles that may have discussed any such funding, but we didn't find any articles that discussed that information. We then found a list of major investors that invest in e-commerce solutions and checked to see whether any of them invested in WooCommerce. However, none of the major investors invested in WooFinance. Together, this research process provided us with all the available information we sought about direct competitors to SamCart.
