buyinvite.com.au is a unique Australian online designer brand shopping club offering exclusive access to sought-after brands at 50-80 per cent off via time-limited sales events.
Launched yesterday, membership is free and there is no obligation to purchase, however, you must be invited by an existing member. Referrers are rewarded with a $10 coupon (redeemable for up to a year) upon the first purchase their friends make.
In the week before each designer brand sale, an e-invitation is sent to all members where they can register for the sale and access sale details. This is accompanied by a custom built video trailer which offers a sneak-preview of the brand’s offering and announces the sale’s starting and finishing dates.
Sales events will begin at 6am weekdays and 8am weekends and last for three days only.
buyinvite.com.au was created in late 2008 by Stephen Coles and Ben Hollenstein.
“For the first half of 2009, buyinvite has concentrated its efforts in creating a robust and user friendly IT platform while at the same time developing relationships with leading brands,” said Coles.
“buyinvite is focused on promoting brands in the best way possible online while offering members the best value on designer brands.”
“The business model is based on a highly successfully European business model which has gained traction globally, spreading from Europe to the US and on to Asia,” said Hollenstein.
“The market leaders in Europe have successfully built shopping clubs since 2001.”
buyinvite has forged partnerships with a number of leading Australian and international brands, is a member of the Australian Fashion Council and supports Australian Fashion Designers and the Australian Fashion Industry.
