The Flipbook, an online shopping portal, said it will be the first major technology company to allow third-party merchants to sell items online.
The company, which launched in April 2016, said in a blog post on Wednesday that it is “moving quickly” to allow merchants to accept payments through the site.
It’s not clear what this means for third-parties such as eBay, Amazon and Google, which also allow third parties to accept and accept credit card payments through their sites.
Flipbook will also allow online shopping via third- party vendors in the future.
The move follows Flipbook’s acquisition of Zendesk in 2016 for $400 million.
The deal closed on Wednesday.
