PRESS RELEASE: Fun and Easy – YEAY Launches in Open Beta
Berlin, July 5, 2016 / -- YEAY, the new fun and easy to use video shopping app, has officially launched in open beta. The mobile app provides its audience with great content and products, and presents itself as a new alternative to the sometimes monotonous experience of digital shopping. The launch comes just a few days after YEAY secured a single-digit million Euro seed-financing led by Grazia Equity.
YEAY is currently establishing partnerships with small and big retailers in cities all over the world: New York, Hong Kong, Berlin, Paris, London and Melbourne, to name but a few. Brands such as Relaxdays, Urbanara, Mister Spex, ZL by Zlism, WOK store Milan, Pixel Panties, eLeyTe and 8DIX, have already started using YEAY to sell their products.
With this app in hand, everyone with a smartphone can buy and sell anything they want. YEAY makes selling and shopping simple, entertaining and personal, whilst at the same time creating mobile-based community of people interested in video.
“YEAY embodies our culture of creativity and innovation,” says YEAY CEO Melanie Mohr. “We are committed to creating customers for life. We are a new company pushing into new markets and becoming a beacon of light in a new category of mobile commerce that goes beyond the traditional shopping experience.”
“Retailers and fashion stores can now not only rely on their voice, but also on their creativity to sell their products,” said Zoie Iam, Designer and Founder of ZL by Zlism. “YEAY will give designers and fashion brands an opportunity to engage with their customers instead of just selling them products,” added Iam.
Based in Berlin, the company now has 35 employees from 13 nationalities and a 49% female ratio—something the administration is very proud of.
The company’s value proposition is to change how people buy. With a combination of great content, retailers, exceptional customer engagement and industry expertise, YEAY will develop long-lasting and rewarding relationships with buyers and sellers.
Android version coming soon.
