MOFFAS heralds a new era of online shopping with the latest introduction of social networking module
"Social shopping is when online shopping gets powered by social networking,"
"Vibin'," the newest component that brings in such social networking functionalities for online shopping tasks, is a social mood/rating system that allows users to stay emotionally connected with others as well as directly express and share their feedback on any web page/item, in a simple, engaging and fun fashion. Unlike the majority of the extension functions, Vibin' operates from a mini box that attaches to the browser window for convenient access. Together with the existing "Holler-Echo"
"Lots of us use Yelp and leave feedback and ratings everywhere, including our social networking accounts. However, they all belong to different platforms. When we check on the actual targets, such information that is supposed to provide insights is most likely not there," answers Robyn when discussing the motivation behind this transformation. "We have many platforms, well-designed powerful isolated worlds across apps. That's great, but we live in one world and sometimes it's also great if we don't do that many app travels."
MOFFAS is a system that self-assembles inside web pages to create a mezzanine layer for users' social shopping activities, from communicating to collaborating on building group orders to save money. Designed to be human-centric, it works on any website and delivers its services right inside the page, without the step of redirecting to third-party platforms. Merchants, on the other side, do not need to change their website codes or pay any fees.
The MOFFAS software system is designed to be omnichannel, with a social networking site, a browser extension that delivers core functionalities and a community edition of the mobile App (for both iOS and Android), at the moment.
Created and managed by New York-based Being & Time, LLC, MOFFAS is a new e-commerce service software that aims to build enhanced social shopping environment for both shoppers and merchants. The core functionalities include shared cloud shopping carts, group deal processing, group bill management, in-group communication, crowdsourced rating system, etc.
