WeShop

WeShop's digital platform utilises both social media and e-commerce to provide a unique opportunity to use social networking to enhance the online shopping experience.  The platform combines trusted social network assets of reviews, likes, and shares with an engaging online retail experience specifically tailored to the individual user.  It enables users to gain rewards by recommending products to their network of online friends, building upon the established phenomenon of individuals receiving social validation via likes and comments on social media posts.  This creates a virtuous circle for users and brands/retailers: users benefit from the convenience of having access to 1,000s of brands and millions of products on one platform plus a two-way sharing of ideas with friends to participate in a rewards system; brands/retailers benefit from increased sales and awareness.

WeShop's powerful search and browsing capability aggregates millions of products from over 250 established retailers.  WeShop already has existing contracts with several major brands and retailers nationwide, including ASOS, Harrods, Nike, Tesco and Boots, with over 7.6 million products available for its users to buy or promote across multiple categories including men and women's fashion, homeware, technology, travel and lifestyle.  Users gain commission via the products they promote with the reward structure ranging between five to ten percent of the recommended retail price of the product.  WeShop believes that the system of earning rewards alongside the implementation of a direct integration system, developed by WeShop, has the potential to create a unique online retail eco-system that benefits users, retailers, brands and manufacturers.

WeShop has had over one million unique users on the platform and continues to work to improve user experience on the platform and its engagement and marketing strategy.  It plans to launch a high-volume brand awareness marketing campaign in the short term to increase the number of registered users above one million.  Initial testing resulted in over 400,000 products added to users' tailored profiles.
