vente-privee.com launches its Android application
vente-privee.com members have been snapping up applications for iPhone, iPad and Windows Phone – and those with Android phones have been waiting with bated breath for an app to call their own: the wait is now over.
vente-privee.com’s application brings glamour to the Android market for free in five major European countries (France, Germany, the United Kingdom, Spain and Italy). Google’s mobile operating system users will find the same ooh-la-la-inducing features as the iPhone application, apart from sales reminders.
The design and usability have been thoughtfully imagined by vente-privee.com employees to guarantee the perfect harmony with the look and feel of the website and its partner brands.
The leader of online flash sales is moving full steam ahead into the m-commerce field and can now be found on the majority of mobiles. In April 2011, m-commerce represented 7.1% of turnover and 13% of total visits. vente-privee.com’s 13 million members now have even more opportunities for chic shopping, wherever they are!
As part of a partnership with Sony Ericsson, the application will also be pre-installed on new Xperia handsets.
World No.1, vente-privee.com has pioneered the online sales event concept. Specialising in selling brand overstock since 2001, the online retailer organises exclusive event-based sales for its 13 million members. Featuring more than 1,200 major international brands, the website offers a wide range of product categories: from fashion to homeware, sports products to electronics. The members-only sales last from two to four days and, thanks to privileged partnerships with brands, offer irresistible discounts of up to 70%.
With 1,322 employees in seven countries, vente-privee.com has generated a gross turnover of £823.6 million in 2010, a 15% year-on-year increase.
