Shogun, a drag-and-drop landing page builder for e-commerce sites, announced that it has raised a $2.1 million seed round of funding from Initialized Capital, Y Combinator and others. The already-profitable startup, which generates revenue in the millions, will use the funding to up its growth game, ramp up hiring, and build out new features for its clients.

Shogun’s drag-and-drop front-end builder enables clients to build very engaging landing pages for their Shopify and BigCommerce stores, so they can sell more. Shogun’s technology integrates directly with Shopify and BigCommerce, so e-commerce sellers don’t have to set up sub-domains that adversely affect search engine optimization. Shogun says it has been growing revenue by 15-20% per month, with 2018 revenue estimated to be 5x 2017 revenue. The company already has more than 6,000 clients, including fitness apparel company Gaiam, watchmaker MVMT, and men’s apparel company Chubbies Shorts.
