The Story Behind
ShopImmigration.com is a market-network startup that comes to make a genuine change in the lives of immigrants. It enables immigrants to hire excellent and reliable immigration services, while making sure there is transparency of prices and keeping an exclusive mechanism of the site – money back guarantee.
This is also our hook: Shopimmigration.com or your money back. This is an old American idea, but we are talking about not less than a revolution in the immigration market. I’ll go into more detail later on.

My way to shop immigration is a winding road, full of adventures, a rollercoaster in which my life interlaced with my business actions marvelously – which is still bewildering me. I came to America wishing to raise capital and start a technological cinema startup called Recast, which failed.
I came with this trailer to America to recruit money and search for copyrights. I did recruit money but it was clear to me that in order to continue with this project, I need to stay here, and obviously, become legal. I began a research: What do I have to do in order to immigrate to America legally?

Immigration Is a Hell of a Difficult Period
Here’s what I found out: Immigration is a hell of a difficult period, very hard… hard to find your way around in immigration services, understand which visa you need exactly, how much it costs, and most importantly – know if you can trust this or that lawyer. There’s a lot of tension and uncertainty because the smallest error can fail you. If you choose an inappropriate lawyer, it can affect your entire life.
While experiencing all these difficulties first-hand and living with crazy feelings of uncertainty, spending great sums of money on consulting, which wasn’t always accurate for me, the Eurika struck – my pain must also be the pain of all other immigrants. And I don’t see a genuine solution to this pain. If there were a platform that can lead me through this process, to help me with the million questions that I have, pointing me to the right lawyer, about whom I can read to get references about, to be sure he asks for a decent price, to be able to speak with him online before I hire him – I would have been a client of such a platform.
Valuable Technological Background
The wonderful news is: We have a great deal of experience in building digital platforms. I personally, built and managed successful platforms in the field of tourism, and was the C.E.O. of a software company. I knew I had the business and managerial experience to build such a complex platform. My partner is highly knowledgeable in Film, content marketing, video marketing and creative design. Our vision is to do what AirBNB did in the world of tourism – but in the field of immigration. This means building a place that can be trustworthy, pay money through it to experts in the field of immigration, knowing there’s guarantee on a product that I purchase.
“Buy immigration or get your money back…”
The Immigration Market
It’s is a huge market. It is a market worth 6 billion dollar annually, with 50,000 extremely busy immigrations lawyers. Each year there are millions of requests for a visa.
Our Business Model
100% Free To The People.
Today, shop immigration is a vision that became a reality. You can already enter Shopimmigration.com and hire immigration services through it. We are referring to a rapidly growing site, in which there are already many professionals, experts for whom there are reliable recommendations, there is price transparency, a blog, a forum, and original contents on video that we produce.
Edge & Differentiation From the Competition
1. We focus on immigration.
2. We are socially driven.
3. We give a guarantee. I want to elaborate on this point.
Money back guarantee is a kind of unique model in the case of immigration services. We allow our lawyers to raise the price for up to 35% if they want to give money back, because it is clear to us that immigrants will be willing to pay up to 35% more in order to have certainty that their immigration will succeed. Why is it clear? This is my answer: I can say that there is almost no price for immigration and certainly no price for an immigration with a guarantee.
Immigration Is Like Saying How Much Your Life Is Worth
There is no price for it. You are buying the dearest thing here. It is your opportunity to build a life in America. This is the uniqueness of the immigration field. And our customers will be willing to pay extra in order to make uncertainty go away.
On the lawyer’s side – She must feel that this immigrant is a sure deal in order to give money back guarantee. Therefore, she will do whatever she can in order to know if the client is a sure deal. She will invest enormously in this case. She will not to fail.
From the technological aspect: The technology that we are going to develop in the next phase of shop immigration focuses on Al – providing people with answers and suggestions depending of the questions asked on a virtual chat. In the future, we are going to develop some of the services with fully automation and user autonomies. This means that some of the visas, those that are not complex, we will make it possible for our clients to get through the site and their immigration process, without the mediation of professionals.
