TORONTO, O.N, Canada – July 6, 2022 - Nextech AR Solutions Corp. (“Nextech” or the “Company”) (OTCQB: NEXCF) (CSE: NTAR) (FSE: N29), a Metaverse Company and leading provider of augmented reality (“AR”) experience technologies and services is pleased to announce the Company's ARitize 3D WooCommerce app is now live and available. With this app going live, Nextech AR’s ARitize 3D SaaS offering for ecommerce extends the Company's 3D model creation services to WooCommerce merchants. This is a major expansion opportunity for Nextech AR’s ARitize 3D model making business for ecommerce as WooCommerce powers approximately 30% of all online stores.
Nextech AR CEO Evan Gappelberg commented, “The launch of the WooCommerce app is a major milestone for Nextech AR and our ARitize 3D modeling solution. The WooCommerce integration provides the Company with another major distribution channel, and allows our ground-breaking technology to be placed in front of millions of additional ecommerce merchants. Our ARitize 3D offering has experienced strong growth in the first half of 2022, and with this new product launch we expect an acceleration in Q3 and Q4 as the ecommerce industry shifts to Web 3.0 and emerging digital technologies. He continued, “We have already integrated with Shopify and BigCommerce earlier this year, and with the addition of WooCommerce we are positioning ourselves to be the 3D model supplier for the entire ecommerce ecosystem, which is massive. The positioning of these apps on these major ecommerce platforms will allow Nextech AR to be front and center as the global demand for 3D and AR solutions expands.”
Nextech AR already powers some of the world's most successful B2C and B2B brands, and has what it believes is the most powerful, scalable, AI powered 3D/AR technology in the market. The Company is already working with large retailers including Kohl’s, Lighting Plus New Zealand, Pier 1, Kmart Australia, CB2, NAPA Auto Parts, Crate and Barrel, Habitt Furniture, Surplus Furniture, Staubli, William Wood Design, Kindred Custom Snowboards, Decor Metal, MGI Golf, Artika, Spinel, Salamander Paddle Gear, Head, Bleems, Spotlight Solar, Artography and more. Through these retailers, thousands of 3D models are being shown to tens of thousands of consumers. With the new launch of this low cost 3D modeling self-serve app with WooCommerce, the Company believes that it will continue to expand its reach to small and medium sized ecommerce websites.
With this powerful new app launch, Nextech now seamlessly provides WooCommerce merchants with the software needed to generate as much as a 94% increase in click through rates and a 40% reduction in returns online, with a frictionless one click integration for 3D model making. Nextech AR’s ARitize 3D has already been integrated with Shopify and BigCommerce earlier this year. As demand for 3D models rises exponentially, the Company also plans to integrate with other ecommerce platforms, continuing to rollout its third party SaaS integration and providing its ARitize 3D modeling solution to millions of ecommerce merchants globally.

The app will provide self-serve access to Nextech’s proprietary AI-powered solution for 3D/AR ecommerce to all businesses who use WooCommerce to power their ecommerce business.
