Thanks to Incentives Such as Free Shipping and Rakuten Super Points Reward Program for Purchases, Leading U.S. Retail Marketplace Sees Double Digit Year-over-Year Increase
ALISO VIEJO, Calif. November 26, 2011 – Buy.com today reported sales over the last two days grew by double digits year-over-year (as of 8 p.m. PST on Friday, Nov. 25). A major driver of the company's overall sales growth was Buy.com's marketplace, which includes more than 4,000 top-tier retailers.
Savvy shoppers took advantage of deals on the bestselling HDTVs, laptops, tablets, home products and toys, as well as affordable gifts from Buy.com, which offers more than 11 million unique products and special holiday discounts on products ranging from tablets to cookware and more. Buy.com's wide product selection, the industry's best deals and a 45-day return policy on holiday purchases, spurred a strong opening for its Holiday Store this shopping season.
"Shoppers have come to know Buy.com as a one-stop destination for the best return on their dollar," said Neel Grover, CEO and president of Buy.com. "Our initial holiday results point to a strong start of the season, as consumers responded favorably to our expanded selection of products and our newest initiatives we put in place to create an even more wallet-friendly shopping experience."
