Drop ’til You Shop® helps online retailers sell goods faster, more profitably and with a sense of adventure. Their live-sale shopping events have been described as “an obsessive video game” (Bloomberg), “an adrenaline-fueled tizzy of competitiveness” (TechCrunch) and “a nail-biting, multiplayer game of Deal or No Deal” (Yahoo! Finance). In addition to supercharging customer engagement, their patented technology monitors real-time traffic to make intelligent decisions about pricing, product selection and availability, working to increase conversion rates, margins and sell-through.
