A great feature of this mobile commerce app is the universal checkout: it happens without the customers having to leave it. There are no browser windows opening in the payment process. It's worth having a look at the solution they found to allow this. @PJWilkinson can comment on it. Usability is pretty cool: the gift discovery process uses cards to display items - one at a time. And a mechanism of thumbs up/down to discard them or send to the wish list. They launched in time for Christmas. I hope it goes well and I can use it for Valentine's Day too.

@EtienneServant That's true... just while we test out the beta. We're planning the US version for late Jan 2015

I ordered a mug which arrived damaged . After sending an e-mail and then following up I didn't even hear back from them. Very disappointed with the lack of protective packaging for products that are fragile and the incredibly poor customer service !!
