Major Retailers are Using GiftNow from Loop Commerce to Guarantee Last-Minute Delivery as Holiday Shipping Windows Close

MENLO PARK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–As the window for standard shipping closes for many retailers, Loop
Commerce, the leading e-gifting platform, today announced that its
GiftNow service is being used at major retailers including Macy’s, Saks
Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, American Giant and Coach,
among others. This creates new opportunities for retailers this holiday
season in capturing these last-minute sales due to shipping cut off
times, thus extending the holiday gifting shopping window and attracting
incremental sales.

“Last-minute holiday shoppers who might have otherwise been forced to
compromise with an online gift card can now shop from the comfort of
their home at major retailers, choose thoughtful gifts and send them
instantly, even as late as Christmas Eve or Christmas Day,” said Loop
Commerce CEO and Co-Founder Roy Erez. “This is an innovation that is
reshaping gift giving and commerce overall, and we’re seeing it through
our own data where apparel is one of the top gifts this season.”

With Loop’s disruptive GiftNow solution, gift givers visit a
participating retailer’s website, select an item, and then send it by
providing only the gift receiver’s e-mail address. No need to contact
the recipient to check sizing or delivery address. Recipients receive
notifications of their gifts via email and are directed to the
retailer’s online store to accept them. GiftNow is not a gift-card. The
service and experience makes sure to convey the thoughtfulness of a real
gift and keep the excitement and surprise of one. Recipients can then
configure the gift to suit their preferences, whether it is size, style
or color, or instantly exchange them before having the gift shipped to
the address of their choosing.

Founded in 2012, Loop Commerce is working with the leading recognized
retailers and brands to revolutionize the estimated $300 billion online
gifting market. Loop’s GiftNow is the first and only solution that truly
bridges the information gap between a gift buyer and recipient, ensuring
the recipient receives the gift that suits them perfectly and with the
high expectations of a thoughtful experience.
