New York, NY (PRWEB) July 08, 2013
Gabnabit.com, launching in late summer or early Fall of 2013, is a new social e-commerce site that will include its own fully functional social platform allowing users to share their purchases in real time with friends. The site will include features such as Social Shopping, Social Interest Groups, gift reminders and an Arcadium Game Mall where users can play for discounts on just-purchased items.
Gabnabit is currently taking applications from merchants, who will be able to upload inventories to the site before it launches in Beta. For merchants, the site represents a new and innovative way to generate sales and increase brand exposure; by qualifying certain products as Arcadium-eligible, merchants can offer discounts and inspire additional social buzz as well as brand advocacy.
“Social Shopping differs from conventional online shopping because it allows you to share your purchases with your friends in real time,” says Gary Swenson, CEO of Gabnabit.com. “We’ve seen social integrations become more and more important in the last few years, which is how the Gabnabit concept was born.”
Gabnabit’s “Arcadium Game Mall” will provide users with a chance to receive certain eligible product purchases for free or at reduced prices. Users who purchase eligible products will be able to “play” for discounts on their items, making it an irresistible destination for deal-seeking shoppers.
Gabnabit will also perform as a fully functional social site featuring a Gab Tab that allows users to simply click and drag to share what they want to buy with friends. Customers will be able to selectively share purchases in their Gab Tab to other contacts on their friends list. Users can also create wish lists and share them with friends in time for special occasions like birthdays. The site will also feature a “gift reminder” function that will alert users of their friend’s upcoming special days and direct them to friends’ wish lists.
To further integrate the idea of “social” within an e-commerce website, Gabnabit will also foster social interest groups, which connect users with similar interests, hobbies, and passions. It is free to join and members will receive sales and special offers for products that relate to their groups.
Gabnabit’s tagline, “Shopping Just Got Really Social,” is a reflection of the platform’s goal: to create and bring forth a marriage of the two online functions. For more information or to sign up for a Merchant or Consumer account, visit http://www.gabnabit.com.
