During the annual one-day sale all goods on KupiVIP.ru will be sold with no markup, the company claims. According to the Russian retailer, its buyers team have worked extensively with suppliers to reduce the markups on all goods to the minimum level. As a result, today the website will feature hundreds of deals from original brands from ten countries globally.
Among the brands that have their products being sold for a reduced price are Karl Lagerfeld, Galliano, Prada and Dolce&Gabbana, but also mass-market labels like Alba, Top Secret and Marcobonne. Together more than 600 fashion brands have huge deals on the website today.
“Our customers’ surveys have revealed that 89% of our buyers love the global one-day sale format, since they understand that on such days they can expect even more interesting offers, for which our buyers are ready to double their expenses”, Vladimir Kholyaznikov, General Director of KupiVIP.ru, comments. “We decided to invest in our own sale and are determined to make Shock Sale the annual special format on KupiVIP.ru. This is a kind of a gift to our loyal customers and the demonstration of our sales model for our prospective buyers.”
Of course, organizing such a day demands a lot from the online retailer. But it came prepared. It introduced a set of measures for boosting the website functionality and operating capacities.
