With the increased usage of mobile devices, mobile shopping and merchandising has increased among the consumers.
Cashing in on this trend, Magic Moments – a provider of mobile social marketplace solutions – along with CafePress Inc. – a provider of print-on-demand services and e-commerce platform –unveiled a free mobile application (app), Magic Moments powered by CafePress, which facilitates customers to create and sell unique products using their smartphone.
Michigan-based Magic Moments offers a mobile social marketplace, which enables users to take pictures, enhance them, buy and sell them.
CafePress helps individuals, groups, businesses and organizations to create, buy and sell customized and personalized products online using its proprietary print-on-demand services and e-commerce platform, The World's Customization Engine.
Unlike other apps available in the market that simply allow users to capture, create and buy their own gear, the new Magic Moments powered by CafePress mobile app allows users to sell their desired products in an unprecedented mobile marketplace for user generated products.
With the help of the new Magic Moments powered by CafePress mobile app, mobile entrepreneurs can enter the e-commerce marketplace quickly, easily and on-the-go. It also facilitates users to turn stunning landscape, memorable or trending moment into meaningful merchandise.
Users seeking to sell a product are required to take a picture or choose the image from an existing album, then choose the product they want to make - such as apparel, accessories, drink ware, pet products and more – and then enhance the image in the Aviary Design Center with customizations. The created product can now be ordered for them or can be sold to others.
Currently available for free in the iTunes App Store, the Magic Moments powered by CafePress mobile app is available with 27 personalized product options including apparel, home items, drinking glasses, and pet products.
"We all use the cameras on our phones to capture and share special moments. This app enables people to turn those magic moments into amazing products and sell them in an unprecedented mobile marketplace for user generated products," said Bob Marino, CEO at CafePress Inc., in a statement. "This partnership provides unmatched print on demand services powered by cutting edge technology."
"With smartphones playing such an integral role in sharing our lives we thought 'why not' build an app that could make people money as well," said Trevor George, co-founder and CEO of Magic Moments, in a statement. "Magic Moments powered by CafePress is driving the beginnings of a larger trend of mobile shopping and merchandising. Whether it's a double rainbow, an adorable animal or a potentially viral meme, there's enormous potential."
Recently, CafePress acquired EZ Prints to accelerates its vision of enabling customization for corporate partners across the Web.
