"The Wavee concept is simple and smart - extending the consumer value of online shopping beyond price by providing a truly entertaining and rewarding experience," said Rollins. "I'm looking forward to working with the bright minds behind Wavee and our partners Grey Atlanta and Prominent Placement to take this service to the next step."
Wavee empowers consumers to determine the value of the latest must-have electronics, including plasma TVs, Kindles, game consoles, laptops and more through a secure auction system. The site was founded by online entrepreneur Lai, who sought to bring the fun and excitement of live auction online shopping mainstream.
Wavee creates a rewarding online auction shopping experience. The site introduces the concept of "Shoptions" (shopping options), which allows consumers to bid on must-have items at steep discounts off retail via an exciting auction with the option to apply the full value of bid credits towards the purchase of the product. Wavee addresses gaps in existing auction sites by awarding bidders with bonus credits through a proprietary bonus program (reducing the implied bid-to-buy price), tools and analytics that give bidders additional insight, a rewards program and more ways to win.
Wavee is headquartered in Atlanta and more information is available at wavee.com.
