The site now has over 5 million products from over 45,000 brands and over 500K visitors on a monthly basis.
MassGenie continues to achieve exponential growth and announced today that its gross merchant volume (GMV) increased 1000% over the last seven months from May through November 2018 after its launch in April with the Power Circle versus the seven months of May through November 2017 during its soft launch. GMV for May through November 2018 was $3.065 million vs $279K over the same period in 2017 with website visitors increasing by 209%.
MassGenie soft launched in mid-2017 with a vision of introducing a new way to shop online. By utilizing MassGenie’s patent pending Power Deal technology, buyers are able to leverage the power of social shopping and sharing to drive the prices down. Power Deals are short term, volume-based offers where buyers can leverage their social media presence to crowdsource demand.
“It is exciting to see the rapid growth we have had since our launch in April which included the redesigned Power Deal featuring the Power Circle,” said Dan DeVries, COO of MassGenie. “We believe that our innovative and fast growing social e-commerce marketplace will fundamentally change the way consumers shop online in the US, similar to what Pinduoduo did in China. In Q4 we expect to continue our brisk growth quarter-over-quarter and year-over-year.”
Due to the exponential growth that MassGenie has been achieving since May 2018, the company was also able to secure an additional $1.5 million in funding bringing its total funding to $3.7 million, in order to continue growth as a leading social shopping e-commerce platform. The latest round, from Kohei Terada, will help accelerate the company’s growth and set the company up for their Series A round which is expected to close in the first half of 2019.
