A new website has popped into the eCommerce space, and it’s taking the industry by storm. There’s clearly a lot of things Lootie is doing right: it has exploded in popularity recently, with over a million active users, and with purchase volume growing day by day. What exactly is Lootie doing so right? What’s pushing it to the forefront of the industry?
A unique, exciting game mode: the mystery box. The mystery box changed the scene when it hit the Internet shopping industry a few years ago, and Lootie has reinvented it in its own beautiful design. A mystery box is where you can choose a type of item, but the exact item you get isn’t revealed to you until you open the box up. It’s great because it adds a lot of suspense to the unboxing experience. This is in direct contrast to other popular eCommerce sites like Shopify and eBay, where the items are listed in a boring catalogue format. The mystery box format finally puts the thrill back in shopping, which has been missing for a long time, especially in this current era of COVID-related lockdowns.
Authentic & verified products, every time. Every source that Lootie uses is confirmed to be authentic. It’s been a problem on the Internet for the long time, especially with a bunch of new third party stores cropping up here and there: finding trusted vendors isn’t easy anymore. The problem arises when people start to not care about getting products from the original manufacturer. Customers start to get complacent, and think there won’t be a problem trusting some random vendor online. With that mindset, they’re sure to get burnt eventually, and will end up receiving a broken product — or worse, a total fake, that they’d be blissfully unaware of. On Lootie, every product in every mystery box comes exclusively from authentic manufacturers. Additionally, things like streetwear and sneakers are run through state of the art verification facilities like StockX.
A shipping policy that’s actually fair for consumers. We hear stories all the time on places like eBay or PayPal where consumers get rear ended by disputes and problems with their order. We hear horror stories of items coming missing, broken, or different — and it’s never resolved by the person who sent it. It’s a tragedy and it’s one of the hardest parts of shopping online in a safe manner. Lootie solves this timeless problem by implementing a shipping policy that is, for once, actually fair for customers. If any of your products ever arrive mixing, damaged, defective, or not up to par in any way, Lootie will provide a full refund or replacement. This way you can rest assured that you’ll actually get the items you order!
Growing the streetwear industry as a whole, and helping business owners. In these turbulent times of COVID, with new variants popping up everywhere, businesses are losing their customers fast. Lootie provides a brand new customer funnel for people to buy even more products. It’s a more easy and fun way to access streetwear merchandise, which automatically increases demand and helps the businesses patch up / make up for lost demand. However, on top of this, there’s another hidden benefit: the funnel of newcomers. People use Lootie for tech products and gadgets a lot, and at first, they’ll exclusively stick to the categories they know. Over time, as they view more and more streetwear merchandise boxes, they’ll eventually buy a few small ones to dip their toes in, and will finally become customers of the streetwear world after they purchase something they actually love! It’s a great way for businesses to grow their customer base without having to invest large amounts in additional marketing.
Lootie is rising to the forefront of the eCommerce industry for all of these reasons. The world has been plunged into a dark era, and the ongoing global pandemic has made it hard for us to go out shopping in malls and other exciting places. The fun and joy in the shopping experience had been sucked out — until now, where Lootie puts it back. The inconvenience of hopping from site to site, hoping to find a trusted vendor with a good shipping policy in case something bad happens — all of that is gone too. And, you can also feel good when you’re on Lootie because you’re helping out an ecosystem that automatically supports all of the small fashion brands and businesses that you know and love. If you’re not already on Lootie, you know that now is the perfect time to make an account: join the revolution and get your unboxings on!
