Gilt Launches Gilt Live

 

Gilt Live provides an exciting way to discover and share products through a real-time view of purchases on Gilt.com 

NEW YORK, July 11, 2012 – Gilt Groupe Inc., the innovative online shopping destination, today announced the availability of Gilt Live on Gilt.com. For the first time Gilt members can peek inside Gilt in real time and see what other members are buying on the site at that very moment.

Gilt Live shows images of products that are currently being purchased on the site and allows users to simply click on the image to buy the product. When five or less of a product remain the member will be shown the remaining number of that item. Gilt members have the option to see all products sold across many categories: Women, Men, Baby & Kids, Home, Taste, Park & Bond or focus their experience to just see products from a single category.

"We really wanted to help people discover new products but also share with them what we see every day at noon internally at Gilt: namely that every day there is a mob of excitement for the great merchandise and great prices Gilt offers," said Justin Riservato, Lead Program Manager, Gilt.com.

Gilt members can Like, Tweet, or Pin any product that shows up in Gilt Live. Gilt Live can be accessed at live.gilt.com and will also be a regular tab on Gilt.com's main page. In order to view the page members need the current version of Chrome, Safari or Firefox.
