When Curbside joined the Rakuten family in June of 2018, we knew opportunities to accelerate growth of our platform were endless, and our ability to scale globally could now be done seamlessly. Rakuten is a global eCommerce and Internet company, with over 1.2 billion global members across 190 countries.

Now a part of the Rakuten family, Curbside is proud to introduce its first solution suite anchored into the global Rakuten ecosystem, the Rakuten Merchant Cloud.

The Rakuten Merchant Cloud is a suite of cloud services that enable merchants to better meet the shopping and fulfillment needs of today’s mobile-first consumer, while also driving both digital growth and additional traffic to brick and mortar locations.

The Rakuten Merchant Cloud allows restaurants and retailers to deliver:

  • A simple and cohesive online to offline ordering and fulfillment experience for customers

    • Increased revenue
    • Brand growth and longevity
