Threadflip redesigns, seeing 20% of purchases made through mobile app


Threadflip is an app where users can buy, sell and discover various clothing and other fashion items, and it's just undergone a major redesign. The app was introduced about a year ago, and since then, Threadflip has seen about 20 percent of purchases made and 40 percent of items listed come directly from the mobile app, so it's a fairly big market for them. That follows the trends that we've seen with mobile shopping lately, with more and more people using their iPhones and iPads to shop, either buying items directly on the touchscreen, or using the mobile devices while out in a more traditional retail environment.

Threadflip's new design includes both a new shopping experience and a new seller dashboard, so users can easily and quickly find what they want to buy (and then check out with those items), or put items up for sale. The app is available now, and to celebrate the redesign, Threadflip is offering 20 percent on purchases from the app until Sunday, June 2, when you enter "TFAPP" at checkout. Threadflip seems like an excellent example of the growth of mobile commerce, and odds are that we'll see more and more of these apps in the future.
