SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Crayvit™ today announced the public beta launch of its innovative social commerce platform, www.crayvit.com. Crayvit combines the best of crowd-funding, social media and e-commerce to take the guesswork out of giving and receiving by putting gift recipients in the driver's seat.
Users simply choose (i.e. "Crayv") any product from Amazon.com, set a date and micro-blog about why they "Crayvit". Seamless integration with popular social media sites helps Crayvs go viral as users share their Crayvs and accept contributions toward desired purchases. Each user contributes as little as $1 up to the full price of the product to anyone as many times as they want. Once the goal is met, Crayvit ships the item directly to the recipient. Crayvit is truly a community "Where Friends Chip In."
"We're at the beginning of the social commerce boom and Crayvit offers a valuable business model with huge growth potential," said Vineeth Venkiteswaran, Crayvit CEO and co-founder. "The market continues to evolve, but current solutions ignore the power of the gift recipient. Unlike other offerings, Crayvit is an active social commerce network, not just a one-time campaign. Imagine receiving any product for any occasion at your doorstep. With the help of your friends and family, now you can."
It's not just a gift; it's a goal! Crayvit provides a fun, easy and secure way for people to choose and promote products and come together to increase their buying power for desired purchases.
Crayvit is also announcing a "Win Your Crayv" sweepstakes to coincide with this public beta launch. Official rules can be found at http://woobox.com/6vm7iz.
