We know that all businesses, and in particular SMEs, need to have simple and efficient tools to benefit from the digital economy and that is why we are always thinking about how to move forward in this regard. The solution that we are launching on the market today is an example of simplification in the steps of the e-commerce value chain and we are happy to do it together with Mercado Shops ”, said Victor Valle, director of Google Marketing Solutions for Latin America.
