Bonny started building Shopmovies in 2015. Possessing of virtually zero skills in web development, Bonny recognized that he needed to quit his day job, learn how to program websites. Only then would he never stand in the rain regretting another miserable garage sale.

His target proved more formidable than he had anticipated.

But after launching to crickets in mid-2015, Bonny caught a break when Shopmovies was declared “The Best eBay Alternative We’ve Seen”by Ecommerce Guide. Within months, Shopmovies grew from “Bonny mom and her friend” to a few thousand sellers. From there, it grew to a marketplace that now offers more than 35 millions items for sale to most every country in the world.

Bonny is inspired by listening, simplicity, and getting things done. He enjoys football, traveling, assimilating new music, and writing in the third person.

 

We operate leading online and mobile marketplaces in retail and wholesale trade, as well as cloud computing and other services. We provide technology and services to enable consumers, merchants, and other participants to conduct commerce in our ecosystem.
