DUBLIN, Calif., June 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today nFlate, makers of the mobile apparel marketplace app See It Buy It (SiBi) announced 'Shop Instagram', a new feature that enables users to shop for apparel based on visual attributes from the feeds of top Instagram fashionistas. SiBi (pronounced si-bee) is a fashion marketplace that uses computer vision technologies to improve shopper experiences by accelerating discovery. Instagram has 700 million monthly active users including dozens of fashion trendsetters with millions of followers.
Before See It Buy It, there was no all-inclusive way to find and buy items similar to those found in top Instagram fashion feeds. With Shop Instagram, shoppers simply select from trending fashion posts and immediately get back similar item matches from the SiBi marketplace. Fashion influencers can even have their own curated product recommendations inside SiBi.
As part of the Instagram integration, top fashion posts are featured on a homescreen carousel. When users tap on a post that interests them, they immediately receive similar item matches that are available in the SiBi market. Once a shopper finds a product they want to buy, checkout is completed from within the app.
See It Buy It has integrated with Shopify, the $8B ecommerce platform, to offer apparel products from the company's 400,000 plus merchants.
"Combining Instagram, Shopify's massive merchant base and our AI-based apparel marketplace is the recipe users of the popular photo sharing app have been looking for," noted Joe Monastiero, CEO of nFlate. "When you look at the comments in trending fashion posts, you will usually find 'I've got to have this' or 'love this, where can I get it.' The answer now is SiBi."
See It Buy It users can also shop by taking photos, matching colors or by submitting web images to find items of interest. With SiBi, users can find and buy at the moment of inspiration, when they first decide they are interested in a particular product. Because SiBi is optimized for mobile use, this could occur at a party, at school, at a wedding, at the mall or even while standing at a bus stop.
See It Buy It is available for free for iPhone users in the Apple App Store and for Android users on Google Play. The company also announced today that they are re-branding the marketplace app as "SiBi".
nFlate is the Silicon Valley-based company that makes the See It Buy It (SiBi) mobile marketplace apps for iPhones and Android devices. See It Buy It uses artificial intelligence to help shoppers find & buy fashion fast. SiBi shoppers can shop by Instagram posts, taking photos, matching exact colors and submitting images from the web.
