Groupon Goods Gets Free Shipping And Returns, Launches Toy And Holiday CatalogsBy: Chris Crum - November 13, 2012
Groupon announced free shipping and free returns on Groupon Goods, as well as a new toy catalog and holiday catalog.
“Groupon Goods has just come off a successful first year with over 4.3 million customers as of Sept. 2012 and an annual run rate of nearly $1.5 billion in global billings and nearly $500 million in revenues shortly after its one-year anniversary in September,” a spokesperson for the company tells WebProNews.
“Also, in order to prepare the toy catalog, we held our first ever Groupon Goods Toy Test Workshop Study Group Focus Test event and scientifically tested the toys with a panel of experts,” she adds.
Don’t worry. This has nothing to do with the Kidz Club.
“The holidays are a time for giving but no one wants to give half their budget to pay for shipping,” said Faisal Masud, head of Groupon Goods. “We’re happy to alleviate some stress and help shoppers stretch their dollars with the debut of free shipping for purchases over $15, just in time for gifting season.”
