I picked up the newspaper that was sitting in the café. The front page headline read, "Young Man Missing". Being a curios person, I began reading the article. What I read next was so appalling that I needed confirmation. 'Sir," I said to the man behind the counter, "Would you please tell me this name right here?" I asked pointing to the paper as he gave me a strange look. "James McGee." He said. I dropped the paper and ran out of the café. A.L.M.
The humble order confirmation page is a wasted opportunity. Or so says Owned it, a new social commerce platform which aims to help retailers increase referrals and conversions by offering customers incentives for sharing their purchases (and any related offers) via social media, post-checkout. Prior to today, the UK startup has been operating somewhat stealthily, although it claims to be already working with merchants from 18 different countries.
