There’s been a lot of activity in the daily deal space in recent weeks. And now Tippr — the Seattle startup — is looking to elevate things a bit with a new offering called PoweredByTippr Marketplace. The idea is that publishers, merchants, resellers and other daily deal participants can post and browse deals, negotiate pricing, reserve inventory and process payments from one spot, in essence simplifying “the complex logisitcs” around daily deals, says Tippr CEO Martin Tobias.
The new offering is built off the company’s patent-pending technology. Here’s more from the company on how it works:
The PBT Marketplace is the most advanced technology enabled deal marketplace available today and includes industry firsts, such as Dynamic Offer pricing, DealRank scoring, and Open Deal Format (ODF) compatibility. While every deal in the Marketplace has a “buy it now” price, there is also a bid/ask process to allow for Dynamic Offer pricing between buyer and seller. This enables true marketplace pricing dynamics, rather than a simple catalog of fixed price offers.
The company’s launch partners on the new offering include Sysco, Entertainment Publications and DoubleTakeDeals.
