Storenvy – Online Shopping Made Social

If you enjoy social networking and you enjoy online shopping, then Storenvy is a website you’ll probably like. By combining those activities into one, Storenvy lets users buy clothes and products from independent retailers while chatting and communicating with their online friends. With more than 6,000 different products available to purchase from more than 600 registered stores, Storenvy lets users buy anything they could need and discuss those purchases with their peers.

Whether you’re looking for a new Haiti relief t-shirt or a Jonas Brothers diaper bag, you can get started shopping on Storenvy by searching through the site’s hundreds of independent stores. If you’re not sure what you want, simply browse by checking out which products and stores are the most popular and most viewed, or sort the items by tags. Once you’ve found something you like, read the reviews left by other users and see how many people have become “fans” of the item. You can log in to post your own review, and share your favorite items with others by clicking the “I Like This” button. Storenvy also features forums, where you can chat with other users and compare notes on which stores and products you like the most.

For sellers, Storenvy offers a way to create a free online storefront that is fully-customizable with CSS andHTML. The site’s easy admin panel helps you handle order management, inventory tracking, online payments, and keeps track of statistics showing how many users visited your store. Whether you’re a shopper interested in buying unique items from independent retailers, or a designer looking for a better way to sell products online, Storenvy is a great site worth checking out.
