The future of shopping has changed – Hello Alphatise!
*sponsored by Nuffnang & Alphatise
As a blogger, I get sent products and invited to events all the time. If I like the product or event, I’ll write about it. If I don’t, unless I have an absolutely horrible experience, you won’t read about it on Lovethis.ie.
I was contacted recently by Nuffnang and invited to the launch of Alphatise, and I can tell you it’s been a while since I’ve been this excited about something.
We all know about my love affair with ASOS (have you checked my latest VLOG out??), well this I predict will be my latest love affair. Sorry ASOS, but I’ve moved on to a younger sleeker model. Alphatise.
Alphatise is, what I can only describe as remarkable. I’m actually really surprised nobody else has done this before. So what is it?
It’s an app. BUT, not just any app. This one’s just a little bit magical.
It’s a social commerce platform but with a difference. Imagine an app that you can choose any prod-uct in the world, and you set the price, exactly the amount you are willing to pay and not a penny more. This little beaut is going to change the way we shop and it lists everything and anything!
The app is free to download and I’ve been playing with it for a couple of days now, adding items to my wishlist, and taking away items, I really and truly do not need. Ted probably doesn’t need that heated dog bed while living in Australia…
The best part is that when you set the price you are willing to pay, the retailer can then accept the offer on your price (so you’re not actually committing to buy until you make the sale), meaning that you could possibly get MASSIVE discounts compared to a bricks and mortar shop. WINNING!
You can shop by item or by store or by barcode. You can make your wishlist public or private. You can add your friends. You can share your wishlist with your friends (hello birthday hints!!).
I’ll admit, I was a little worried regarding the payment mechanic but Alphatise has assured me that the retailers they are involved with need to meet the highest of standards.
As part of the apps launch I attended, I also had a wish granted, which was amazing – HEEEELLLLO Michael Kors wallet!
Now for the sad part… the app is currently only available to Aussie’s but will be launched internationally next year.
