There’s no better way to say this… but we never thought it would take this long to really launch MerchMatch. We are, however, getting closer and closer. (YES, we’ve been saying that for ages now — that’s what you get when it’s developed part-time here and there as we have gotten married, changed jobs, developed other projects, etc.)
You’ll be happy to know that we are winding down development, finishing up some bug fixes, and will be entering beta later this summer (possibly sooner, but who knows?).
Prepare to be amazed. MerchMatch really is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
What’s the purpose to what we’re doing at MerchMatch? WE WANT TO MAKE LIFE EASY FOR YOU!
Some of the top complaints when shopping online are:
- “I can’t find what I’m looking for.”
- “It’s too much hassle to order something.” or “It takes too long to checkout.”
- “This site just takes forever to load!”
- “I don’t know if I can trust this site.”
- “I just want to be able to talk to a real person!”
MerchMatch was built to specifically address the first 3 complaints, but we’ll throw in a bonus and cover the last 2 as well. :)
We have created an innovative system that lets you find EXACTLY what you’re looking for within seconds of landing on our page, and with one-click, request the item for a price that you want to pay – not what we’re charging. Yup, you read that right. You get to find what you want to buy within seconds, as well as buy it with one-click! No more endless searches!
With that same system that we’ve built from scratch, we are able to increase load times and searches through hundreds of databases of information to find what you’re looking for in a matter of seconds.
Getting excited? No? Did I mention that this will all be FREE to you? Now I see that smile.
We sponsored a party and had people entering to win a brand new iPod Nano. If you missed out on the party, you missed out on the MerchMatch Merchbot (see it below), but you can still enter our contest by going to MerchMatch.com and entering by way of your email address.
