Contxto – Knock, knock. Who’s there? It’s Uruguayan startup nocnoc who’s expanded its ops in Brazil.
Through its recent partnership with Brazilian furniture e-commerce site, Mobly, nocnoc will now serve as the platform’s sole provider of international goods.
Why it’s a big deal: Mobly is an important online furniture sales website in Brazil. The fact that a startup that just recently shifted its core business towards international commerce last year, suggests that it’s geared to satisfy the high demand Mobly’s platform requires.
Correspondingly, the 200 items on Mobly’s international product catalog will now be managed through nocnoc.

This startup specializes in connecting vendors from the US and China with marketplaces in Latin America. Through its e-commerce gateway, nocnoc makes it easier for these international sellers to soft-land their products into the regional market.
These vendors can host their products on nocnoc’s platform at no initial cost. Although if a person buys one of these items, the startup charges a fee over the value of the sale. The rate ranges from 1.5 to 3 percent though it depends on the sales volume and type of customer.
Nocnoc also has a deal in Peru that’s temporarily been paused because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Moreover, it plans to expand into Argentina.
At the end of the day, with e-commerce on the fast-track to adoption, manufacturers will be looking for more consumers to buy off their products. And if by knocking on nocnoc’s door, they enter a new market with greater ease they’re finding the way to greater opportunities.
