Coolspotters Rolls Out New E-Commerce Partnership Program


Some of you may have noticed that a few brands are being highlighted in unique ways on the Coolspotters front page, as well as on the individual product profiles for those brands. It’s all related to a new e-commerce partnership program that we rolled out over the last couple of days.

For an exclusive group of celeb-savvy brands, Coolspotters is offering customized commerce links, and users will now be able to purchase products directly from the brand’s own commerce site. We’re excited to be working more closely with brands that define today’s style trends and those that are becoming favorites among today’s hottest celebrities.


So, in case you were wondering why some products have a special “buy it” treatment…this is why. When you see a brand’s logo and a direct “buy it” link (as in the example to the left) then you know that you’re buying directly from the brand you love and trust.

We just wanted you, our users, to know about this new program as it now makes it even easier to buy the products you love. And If you’d like your brand to participate in our Commerce Partnership program, please email us at info@coolspotters.

We hope everyone is having a great holiday season! Don’t forget to check out our gift guide for those last minute purchases.

Happy Shopping!
