Pharmapacks — a leading ecommerce enablement platform and retail seller for brands across major ecommerce marketplaces — announced that it closed a $40 million bridge round financing which was led by Reckitt Benckiser, The Craftory, The Straus Group, The Emerson Group, and Sawaya Capital Partners. 

How does Pharmapacks work? Pharmapacks’ team of eCommerce experts have over 10 years’ experience and 850 employees connecting consumers to their favorite brands on online marketplaces such as Amazon, Walmart, Google, eBay and Facebook, becoming one of the largest marketplace sellers in North America. And Pharmapacks essentially serves as a “launch pad” for emerging brands by giving a select amount of lesser-known brands access to the Pharmapacks’ e-commerce platform and consumer base. This enables brands to focus on product research and development while Pharmapacks strategically sets competitive price points and builds a connection between the consumer and the brand.

Through its proprietary platform, Pharmapacks has been trusted by millions of customers to provide all their daily needs. And after reaching over $250 million in sales in 2019, Pharmapacks is on a current run rate to achieve more than 70% year-over-year growth. And with the opening of a 230,000 square foot replenishment center in late Q3, it should give Pharmapacks the ability to achieve 100% year-over-year growth in Q4.

This funding follows Pharmapacks July growth financing round of $150 million with GPI Capital and JPMorgan Chase Bank.
