LOS ANGELES, April 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Shopping online for items or services you see in magazines, blogs, or other content websites is about to become much simpler and a lot more exciting. Bringhub (www.bringhub.com), a unique e-commerce platform, will launch at the end of April via a select and growing group of premier publishers and top tier retailers.
Bringhub enables online shoppers to instantly purchase the goods and services they discover in online content through a checkout that lives directly in the publisher's site. Whether shopping for apparel, consumer goods, tickets, or travel, now readers can purchase multiple products, from multiple stores, all through a single checkout—without ever leaving the site they were browsing.
Bringhub enables varied purchases to be grouped into a single cart, even if the items ordered are fulfilled by multiple retailers. If a consumer is reading an online fashion magazine, for example, and wants to shop for items on its pages, she will be able to purchase those items from one or more retailers in a single, simple, secure transaction. Once the purchases are completed, the consumer can continue to engage with the content she was previously enjoying, so that the publisher never loses its audience.
"Bringhub is the cutting edge of e-commerce," says co-founder and CEO Dominik Pantelides. "Now, every piece of the web's best content holds the potential to become a point of purchase. Bringhub improves the consumer's experience, while retaining viewers on the original editorial content and offering an exciting range of options to retailers. We see this as a win-win-win situation in a one-stop shopping environment – the era of e-commerce 3.0 is beginning."
Bringhub was co-founded by Dominik Pantelides, COO Brian Marvin, and CTO Albert Khasky in 2014, and its daily operations are headed by Pantelides, Marvin and Khasky. The company has successfully raised $1.8M in seed funding through US and international investors including Bill Budinger, Capital Union Investments Hong Kong, BAM Ventures, Canyon Creek Capital, Rachel Zoe Ventures, and many more.
"Bringhub is the shopping experience for the connected generation," explains Marvin. "It empowers readers to shop their favorite stores directly from their favorite content. It isn't just the ultimate streamlined checkout—it's an entirely reinvented e-commerce experience."
