The shumee shopping platform is taking off. Till the end of the year shumee wants to attract 100,000 users.
Building the community and promoting recommendations made by real people, shumee assists users in coming to sensible decisions.
-As consumers we don’t trust any more advertisements so much but nearly 80% of us believe other people when making shopping decisions. Having this in mind, we have created shumee- the shumee boss, Szymon Midera, is saying. We give users some freedom to exchange opinions, to recommend something and to obtain opinions from other users. Additionally, in co-operation with dotpay company, we offer a modern payment system operating both in B2C transactions as well as in C2C ones, Midera is adding.
After a few months of work on the solution, shumee is being launched as a shopping platform based on recommendations of the community, promoting styles of shopping and life consistent with the smart idea, focusing mainly on building an organic coverage in cooperation with influencers and shumee’s partners. They are the first group of active sellers. Within two weeks, shumee has been filled with 1,000 new and second-hand things. And building the coverage of over one million recipients of communications about sale on shumee means systematic attraction of a few hundred users of the application every day.
The number of businesses offering their products on shumee is also growing e.g. of handicraft or individual collections of clothes. And soon new creators and producers of exceptional things will join the group of sellers.
So far 30 thousand people have used the shumee’s website and application. The number of votes and comments i.e. shumees reached 70 thousand.
