With the advent of numerous flash sales and daily deal sites post GroupOn era, how do you differentiate yourselves from run of the mill brands? Plymio launching soon in the UK is hoping to answer this question.
Plymio is a daily deal, group deal or flash sales all in one website. London based founder Rahul Jerome says, the idea is to sort of replicate what Fab.com have done in the US, we will bring talented UK designers and consumers to a single platform but the model would be a tad different. He adds that apart from bringing discounted designer goods to UK consumers, we will create a niche within the flash sales domain by specialising in accessories from fashion to electronics. Some of the products you will find on the website will include shoes, branded clothing, mobile phones, sunglasses, shoes and apparel.
The site is looking to go live by end of May in time for the English summer. Rahul hopes that Plymio will set itself apart from its competitors by incorporating an interesting business model. As the slogan suggests ‘Shopping isn’t just buying’, Plymio hopes to provide an awesome buyer experience and feel good factor about shopping from them. How would this be achieved? Well, for every product purchased by a customer, a percentage would go to a chosen charity with the customer being informed of how much amount would be donated. Customers can vote for charities close to their heart on Plymio’s Facebook page every month. Rahul adds that ‘ we will conduct a poll every month for our fans to choose their favourite charity based on 3 categories -1)Local 2) National and 3) International.
They hope to make a difference to the world in a small way and want their customers to feel good by contributing indirectly in making the world a better place to live. Rahul says that ‘we will be throwing all sorts of freebies, deeply discounted deals, free vouchers etc to have customers keep coming back to our site’. Plymio is currently running a free iPad sweepstake on their Facebook fan page. Sign up here http://www.plymio.com. One of the other differentiators is our refund policy, a 60-day refund policy something that is unheard of in the daily deal business. The customer is free to return any product purchased, no questions asked within their 60 day money back guarantee.
Plymio has already amassed thousands of sing ups even before launch through social media. With the huge array of products on offer, the charity-inclusive product sales and the 60-day refund policy, Plymio.com is about to take the flash sales sector by storm.
