Launched just in 2015, Jet.com is a Walmart-owned shopping website where consumers can buy all sorts of products at low prices and receive added perks.
For a relatively new company, Jet.com has been making a lot of waves. From a consumer standpoint, Jet.com has some pretty sweet perks. Not only are the prices low, but 2-5 day shipping is free with a minimum purchase of just $35. Also, the potential for savings blows competitors out of the water. Customers save money by earning “Jet Cash” through referrals, buying in bulk, and bundling purchases (prices of individual items get slashed in real time when users add more items to their cart). However, Jet.com doesn’t really make it easy for E-retailers. It’s important to note that retailers can’t just start selling products on the platform right away like other websites. First, they need to apply online. The next step is to integrate directly with Jet’s API or through a third-party such as ChannelAdvisor or CommerceHub. If your E-commerce business is looking to sell products online, there are better all-in-one solutions such as Shopify or Volusion that can get you started right away.
