Canadian online retailer SHOP.CA has released an iOS app for the iPhone and iPad to allow shoppers to make purchases on the go. The retailer looks to compete with the likes of Amazon.ca and other online shopping portals to achieve their goal “to be Canada’s number one online shopping destination.”
SHOP.CA is becoming Canada’s leader in online shopping, providing a unique Canadian experience that combines an authoritative selection of products, unparalleled service and a social loyalty program that rewards members on every purchase. Launched in July 2012, SHOP.CA has become the fastest growing retail site in Canada and top 10 most visited Canadian owned ecommerce site. And now SHOP.CA customers earn Aeroplan Miles on every purchase so you can Shop & Earn Every Time!
The retailer has free shipping on all its products, so what you see is what you pay. Also, there are free returns as well, as prepaid return shipping labels are provided.
SHOP.CA closed on $31 million in Series B funding this May, which included investments from Shaw Ventures, a subsidiary of Shaw Communications. The retailer also announced Aeroplan had signed on to provide another loyalty incentive for shoppers.
