Search, With a Little Help From Friends

The holidays are keeping our little elves busy, crating lovely new features to make your shopping lives better. You may have already noticed their work…

Did you feel something different about your newsfeed lately? Did you notice it’s got more of that Christmas cheer? Well it’s no coincidence. By giving Holiday related stories a little boost we made sure your experience on the site will be in the holiday spirit. We also have a special Christmas page!

Who Owns that?

Our hard working elves were also busy improving our search engine – adding new capabilities that will make your holiday shopping that much easier.

After typing your desired item and clicking enter, you’ll notice lots of new options. You can sort the results by price, relevancy and alphabetical order. Which is great and makes sense, but the really exciting part is sorting by your friends’ relation to the item.

What does that mean? You can sort items by how many indications of like, own and want they got on the site. Is the product you’re looking for on everybody’s wish list? Did it get lots of likes? Definitely something you’d like to know, isn’t it?

We’ve got a lot more coming your way. Stay tuned!


‘Tis the Season for Snow

Monday, December 3rd, 2012

By Sareena Denis, Community Manager at ShopYourWay

It was just a month ago that the leaves began to turn colors and the weather got colder. With piles of leaves covering your yard and hours of work ahead, it was time to get rakin’. Helping you decide between eight similar rakes, you turned to other shoppers’ reviews to find the best rake for you.

Now the season is changing again and heavy snow is just around the corner. Though, like the leaves, it’s beautiful at first, it’s only a matter of time before it turns to slush. Are you going to stick with your old shovel, or rely on a new snowblower to get the job done? Let help you choose with trusted reviews on the latest products.

Rating Products Just Got Easier

This week we are introducing a new action menu to products in the Order Details page, making it easier to rate items and give feedback on your recent purchases.

You will be able to rate products, add them to your catalogs, write reviews, and share on ShopYourWay, e-mail, Twitter, and Facebook without having to search the website for products you already have.

Hovering over a product on this list will activate the tool and allow you to share your favorite products just as you do throughout the rest of the site.

What is especially nice about this feature is how easy it makes it to help fellow shoppers out by adding your views and opinions about an item you bought.

Don’t Fret if You Missed Black Friday

If you were hoping to get the season’s best deals with Black Friday savings, but couldn’t get out of bed from Turkey overload, you can still save big with new daily deals. This year, let your friends help you create the perfect winter wish list.

If you head over to your notifications page, you can easily catch up on whatever you missed. In the spirit of the holidays, we made it prettier. With every notification an image of the tag or picture of the person triggering the notification now appears alongside the new post.

This way, you will be able to identify each new post with an image, which makes it even easier to identify who is doing what within your social network.

Check out what your friend’s bought and let them guide you with trusted shopper reviews. Did that shovel you got last winter give out, and since then you’ve been coveting your neighbor’s new snowblower he got at Sears? Perhaps this year it’s time to make the upgrade!

Stay tuned for more upcoming features that will help your holiday shopping!

There’s a New Deal in Town

Thursday, November 22nd, 2012

The shopping season is at full speed, and we on ShopYourWay keep rolling out the features to make your shopping experience smoother and easier.

And we’re picking up the pace as well. We introduced a new type of deal to the site – the deal of the day. It’s a great opportunity for shoppers with a quick mouse finger: Get a cool product at a great price – but for one day only. You snooze you lose!

Click on the deals tab in the homepage, and check it out: you can see the regular price and the (lower) one you’ll be asked to pay, The deals start and end time, and most important of all – you can click on add to cart and get it.

The Short Way to the Top

We’ve also been busy catering to the needs of page curators – you guys who manage pages and add awesome content to ShopYourWay.

If you’re managing a page – if not you can create one – you can now make sure your users see the best content first. Hover over an item, either one you posted or one posted by users. Basically any cool piece of content. Now click “stick to top” and see what happens.

Yes – the item appears on the top left of the page, and stays there, no matter what. You can have up to ten items “stuck”. Want to shake things up a little? “un-stick” an item following the same method.

Better Advice

And last but not least – we improved our help me choose polls, making them not only prettier but more helpful. You can now see how users voted even before you click, using the sage advice of your peers to decide what to buy.

Lots more coming. Enjoy the holidays – and stay tuned.

Holiday Season – Get Smart

Thursday, November 15th, 2012

By Noam Reshef, Community Manager at ShopYourWay

The preparations for the great shopping season continue at full speed. This week we concentrated our efforts on two important fronts: shoppers, and page curators.

Shoppers come first: for you guys we upgraded our newsfeed, making it even smarter and more effective than before, so you can easily find those awesome items and get them.

So here’s the deal: you can now take control of the feed and choose how it’s presented. You can either see the latest, newest stories, or choose to see the ones most relevant to you. You decide, you’ve got the power.

Pages, Get Ready

Our page curators are getting ready for the holiday rush as well – and by the way, you can manage your own page as well. Just go to our page creating tool, and make one for yourself, or claim ownership of an existing topic or brand page by clicking the relevant link on the page.

Now that you own a page, you should make it attractive and engaging. How? It’s not hard. Upload a cool image, and an impressive hero banner. Publish some interesting content – status messages, pictures and videos. Add catalogs of products, images of Christmas trees and what not.

The main idea is simple: decorate your page for the holidays, post interesting and diverse content – text, images and videos – and tag it accordingly, to the right categories, brands etc. If you build it, they will come.

And that’s exactly what we told our curators in the newsletter we recently sent them, in order to help them make their pages as cool as possible for you guys. Check them out – and stay tuned.


The Holidays are Coming! And Pictures too

Tis the season to get busy: Black Friday, Christmas and all their shopping goodness are just around the corner. is the place to do your holiday shopping, and we’ve added even more features to make the experience that much better.

The biggest news is in the details – order details to be exact. Go to your account history and click on an order, and you’ll immediately notice the change. Yes, those are product images, clickable and leading to the page of the product you just bought.

So now you can rate that new TV you bought, or write a review about that cool new console you got your kids for the holidays. This is what shopping on our site is all about.

More Content!

And we’re not done yet. We added a share button to all content on the newsfeed – even if it wasn’t published by the user. Just click the button and share the joy with your friends.

And on the same note, the social tab on the homepage just got even more interesting. We decided that since it seems you guys like this tab, it should be social all the way – and now it’ll include content created by curators of pages you follow.

So if a you follow the HBO page, and the page curator published a story about a cool DVD of your favorite TV series – you’ll see it on the social tab.

And there’s a lot more coming. Stay tuned!

The holidays are upon us – that lovely season of family gatherings and crazy shopping sprees. You know you want to get the latest and greatest stuff – and ShopYourWay is the perfect place to do it. so – why not invite some friends to share the shopping greatness?

Our new feature lets you do just that. Invite your Facebook friends to ShopYourWay with one click, sending them a personal message inviting them to shop with you. The advantages are clear – the more friends you know and trust on ShopYourWay, the more quality recommendations, reviews and comments you’ll get.

The “invite Facebook friends” page will also show you which of your friends from the famous social network are already on ShopYourWay and enable you to follow them on the site. So – start being friendly.

Easier to Find

Holiday shopping is an important and time consuming task. To make your life easier we went and upgraded our search engine. Yes, we made it even better.
Looking for a product? Maybe you want to find a friend whose advice you trust? The new search filter lets you define exactly what you’re looking for. Choose people, and the system will search among other users – and not products.

Oh, and we also invited a friendly bat over for Halloween – you can see right there on our logo.

Enabling you to filter your search results in advance is cool – and we have even cooler stuff coming. Stay tuned!
