Just like Don Vito Corleone in The Godfather, Tee Me Up is telling shoppers “Make me an offer I can’t refuse.”
Since its launch in November 2012, Tee Me Up has been showcasing the freshest, quirkiest, and most interesting new tee shirt designs with its collection of more than 500 tees.
Now, Tee Me Up has taken a nod from one of the best moves eBay ever made. The site is letting shoppers make an offer on any tee shirt on the site. Just like eBay’s “Best Offer” function, Tee Me Up gives the seller the choice as to whether to accept the customers offer, or not.
Tee Me Up founder, Glenn Tan, is excited about the feature which will distinguish Tee Me Up from other retailers:
“Differentiating ourselves from other retailers and offering our shoppers a unique experience is critical to the success of our business. In addition to the fantastic labels we have featured on Tee Me Up and the large range of tees available, by providing shoppers with the opportunity to negotiate the price of a product directly with sellers will enhance their shopping experience and makes Tee Me Up a true marketplace. This feature is unique to a retail website and something we are very excited about!”
What to expect
What can you expect from Tee Me Up? The shirt lineup runs the gamut of everything from dapper cool to weird-good. Sellers there cover both ladies and gents, so there’s something unique – brought to you by Australian designers no less.
The “Best Offer” feature will only not apply to all tees listed on Tee Me Up, only those specified by the label. When an offer is made by the shopper, the label will have the option to accept the offer, refuse the offer or send a counter-offer to the shopper to consider.
What do you think?
So, what do you think Anthillian masses? The “Best Offer” feature has been successful for eBay selling, and it looks like the format is making its way into other online retail business plans. Do you think it would work for your biz?
