Builder.ai's Studio Store offered everything I needed to get my business online in one package. I needed a website and app, and with Studio Store I could get everything from the same company.

Born of frustration

The idea for Anup Lalli’s business came while she was heavily pregnant with her first child. "I was looking to buy some prints to decorate the walls of my child's room, but wasn't able to find anything of good quality. So decided to have some made with a safari / animal theme.”

Lost in the marketplace

Marketplaces can be a great way to find potential customers - however in return for access to their customer base, you give up a lot of control.  

Anup found this out after two years of selling on Etsy - “I spent a lot of time building up the product catalogue and presence and out of nowhere one day, my account had been blocked. When getting in touch with Etsy customer service I was given a boilerplate terms and conditions response, and no specific reasons as to why my account had been suspended."

Big gain hunter…

Luckily, Anup found Studio Store and created her own apps and website. It meant she had complete control over her business with zero transaction fees..

"The whole set up process was really quick and easy – the Builder.ai team made every step very clear and everything went smoothly”.
