Operator of Indonesian fashion e-commerce business Berrybenka.com, PT. Berrybenka today announced raising nearly US$5 million in a Series B investment from transcosmos inc., and GREE Ventures, Inc.

Earlier in January, Berrybenka secured funding from GREE Ventures and East Ventures in a Series A round.

Jason Lamuda, CEO, Berrybenka, says that transcosmos is a strategic partner for the Indonesian startup. This is especially so given the Japan-based investor’s extensive experience in end-to-end e-commerce solutions globally. He adds,

“Be on the lookout for exciting new changes coming to Berrybenka.com, such as Cash on Delivery and 1-day delivery options, new product categories, mobile apps and personalisation/recommendation services, just to name a few.”
