New York, NY, June 15, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Shelf9 one of the fastest growing shopping portals for fashion, living accessories, electronics and entertainment, is launching in the USA. Shelf9 portals, already available in the Great Britain and Germany are impressive due to their large selection of products and sleek web design that differentiates them from other on line shopping portals and price comparison web sites.
"Many e-commerce solutions have missed out on Web 2.0 and the revolution of social media. Most price comparison web sites and quite a few on-line shops look 10 years old. These kind of sites are not fun to use and don't inspire people to make purchases! Our vision is to offer a huge product catalog spanning many different categories of products and at the same time to provide the same high quality shopping experience that they are accustomed to when visiting their favorite shops," says James Blewitt, one of the founders of Shelf9.
Shelf9 combines an appealing design with a highly capable price comparison search machine and a product catalog that covers over 50 million products. Social Shopping is deeply integrated into the platform, but not so much as become a nuisance.
By logging into Shelf9, via Facebook or Twitter, the user can individualize the shopping experience. Users can choose if they want to receive special offers from only their favorite shops and brands and can choose to receive email alerts when such offers become available. Through the "Shelf It" function, the user can collect multiple products into "sets", for example, the items comprising a complete outfit, top 10 favorite movies or fragrances, or simply things that the user perhaps wishes to purchase at some future time.
These sets, called "Shelves", can be shared and discussed with friends. This makes collaborating on choosing a gift for a friend easy, as well as getting help combining clothing articles from your own social group. You can even send your own advice to a friend who is perhaps struggling to choose a new LED television.
While signing up to Shelf9 has many benefits it is not a requirement. People simply wanting to find cool products at good prices can simply search through the huge, and ever expanding, product catalog and buy those products directly at Shelf9's partner shops.
The name Shelf9 comes from the expression "Cloud 9". Through the user tailored shopping experience and the "Shelf It" function, users can find their favorite products and build: The Perfect Shelf.
