Soldinsixty.com, as the name suggests, puts up a deal every sixty minutes. With an extremely slick UI and some exclusive deals on luxury and lifestyle products, this site stands out from the rest and holds a lot of promise in the highly competitive deal space. They provide free shipping and have the Cash on Delivery option. Soldinsixty has a mobile version of the site, a facebook app, an active blog and a flickr profile page. And they’re running an iPad 2 contest to market the site (you enter the contest by just liking their facebook page). Soldinsixty surely impressed us! The only annoying part of the site is the e-mail lightbox that is flashed every time the site is launched and there’s no way to close it.
On further investigation, we found that soldinsixty.com is actually promoted by the owners of gift360.in – an Indian e-commerce portal – the products are picked from here and put up for sale on SoldInSixty every hour. Now that’s a very clever innovation!! Now the question is… Are other e-commerce sites going to follow suit and come up with another gazillion Groupon clones?!
