As more shopping moves to desktops and smartphones and growing competition from Amazon, Walmart is snatching up startup Jet.com for $3 billion.
With Jet.com, Walmart is adding technology expertise to its app, site and stores to help the massive retailer build up its ecommerce business.
“Walmart.com will grow faster, the seamless shopping experience we’re pursuing will happen quicker and we’ll enable the Jet brand to be even more successful in a shorter period of time,” said Walmart president and CEO Doug McMillon in a statement.
CEO Marc Lore launched Jet.com one year ago to compete with Amazon with significant funding. His business model centered on buying and reselling products from more than 2,000 retailers like Walmart for lower prices.
According to Walmart, Jet.com added more than 400,000 shoppers each month, and the site generated 25,000 daily orders. Jet will remain a separate brand from Walmart, and the deal is expected to close later this year after regulatory approval.
