Social Shopping Bridges the Gap Between the High Street & Online
(PRWeb UK) April 10, 2010
Why shop when you can 'Social Shop' -- that's the question new online pet product etailer Petsintime asked when it conceived its shopping experience.
'Social Shopping' bridges the gap between shopping on the high street and the very unsocial experience that can be shopping online.
Shopping on the high street is usually accompanied by a friend, spouse or family members who are on hand to offer advice and opinion. This is a very different scene when shopping online and until now there hasn’t really been a way to bridge the gap.
'Social Shopping' allows the shopper to browse through a web site and ask for advice from a friend, family member or spouse by simply allowing them to ask their Facebook contacts about the item.
Email a friend and copy/pasting links are confined to the days of writing letters and sending snail mail, the social network offers easy, instant response to any enquiry and Petsintime integrate it into their shopping experience beautifully.
Petsintime didn't just stop at redefining the shopping experience, they also looked at shaking up the online pet supplies market place by offering more than 17,000 pet products for those little furry (and not so furry) friends. Every conceivable dog food brand, cat food, accessories, hutch, toy and kennel; you name it they have probably got it.
The buying experience has also been looked at with fresh eyes and shoppers are presented with a very easy to use interface that offers product comparison, wish lists and searching with ease.
Details can be saved in a Petsintime account to benefit from being able to call off regular purchases, like dog or cat food, with a click of a button, no need to search for the products and add them to the basket after the first time shopping with the site.
Petsintime also run a reward/loyalty system so repeat shoppers can get money off their future purchases.
Petsintime are running a promotion at the moment giving 5% off with this promotional code: PROMO5
Watch out pet industry there is a new kid on the block and they're thinking revolution!
