Peeractive™ merges e-commerce with game dynamics to create addictive real time shopping experiences. Founded in Sydney, Australia by a pair of experienced entrepreneurs, their vision was to develop products to disrupt the e-commerce world. The duo partnered with a leading programmer based in Los Angeles to create their first product: Drop til you Shop™.
Since it’s inception, Drop til you Shop™ has grown to become the world’s first truly live and interactive shopping arena, and has affectionately been dubbed ‘The funnest online shop on earth.’ After hiring a US Director to help with global expansion, the team was selected by DreamIt Ventures, one of the top startup accelerators in the world, to be part of their 2012 program in Philadelphia.
Drop til you Shop™ is now up and running with live shopping events each week. While the Drop til you Shop™ community continues to grow, Peeractive™ is continuing to optimize and grow its patent-pending technology to never before seen levels.
