Mallzee.com - Making Shopping Social



I was recently contacted by the lovely people at Mallzee about their brand new website, Mallzee.com. The basic idea of the website is shopping - which is always something that appeals to me - but it's more than that.  After joining Mallzee, you can create your own personal 'mall' by picking your favourite shops and brands, then Mallzee will also recommend products based on your personal style within your mall.
Once you have created your dream mall you can share it with your friends through Facebook integration, as well as sending them products that you think they'll love! Some of the products available through Mallzee will even be offered at a discounted rate, only available through the site. If you're not sure if you should buy or not you can easily create polls to gather opinions before you spend, which I personally think I'll find very useful to help tone down my spending ways! Yet another bonus to using Mallzee is that you can earn money if your friends buy through your shops, the perfect way to earn money to spend on even more clothes...
Mallzee have over 200 brands signed up to this unique shopping platform, including Urban Outfitters, Office, New Look and FeelUnique. The website isn't set to launch until later this year, but you can register for an invite to the launch on the website and you can also enter in to a prize draw to be in with a chance of winning £100 (or $155) of shopping vouchers and some other goodies.

Personally, I am really looking forward to using this site especially considering some of my favourite shops will be involved. The concept is definitely something that appeals to me and I think it's a fantastic way to use social networking within online retail, to quote Mean Girls: "You wouldn't buy a skirt without asking your friends first if it looks good on you, right?"
