What is a Pure Player?


What is a Pure Player?

A pure player is a company with products or services that are sold entirely online. Essentially, it's an e-commerce brand that doesn't have any physical storefronts and conducts its business through digital channels, like social media networks

As the world turns more towards digitization, pure player companies are increasingly becoming the norm, especially ones rooted in social commerce-focused strategies.

A Case Study Example

Leading European DIY & home improvement marketplace, ManoMano, is a prime example of a pure player. This entirely e-commerce storefront has sites in 5 countries and over 16 million available DIY, home improvement, and gardening products.
