Product Update: Hot Additions for the Summer



Coming in Hot

Summer is right around the corner; that means sunshine, fun-times, and vacations to foreign places (or just to the neighborhood pool). Whatever your budget, and whatever your plans, Purse can help you gear up on the cheap.

We’re making it even easier to spend those hard earned digital assets like Bitcoin, Ethereum, and ZCash: simplifying finding items you love; cleaning up some bugs; and continuously iterating on creating an unmatched shopping experience for those making the switch to this crazy new “internet money”.

What’s New

So look no further, here’s what new in this latest update; with plenty more to come this Summer (crypto doesn’t take vacations, but we hear Maui is nice right now)

Enhanced Search UI
Improvements to our search bar are now here. You can now filter and breakdown your searches to get more granular with your results. Quickly choose between Amazon items, or items’ shipped by Purse Merchants; as well as refine by category, and whether the item has fast shipping through Amazon. This, combined with our last update with item variations, should ensure finding the exact item you love is more seamless.

You’ll find these improvements live on desktop, and will be available on our Android and iOS apps as well.

Order Page and Shopping Cart Links

You can now click into items from your Order Page, as well as from your Shopping Cart. So, if you’re undecided on an item in your cart and want to quickly review its product description/rating; or, perhaps you’ve completed your order and want to quickly get back to the product page to reorder: you can now do so from both pages — reducing clicks to get you what you need faster.

General Improvements

We cleaned up our header design, made some minor tweaks for desktop and mobile, and updated our shop banner (Never fear, Summer’s here). There were also some pesky login related bugs, and a small bug with our new Download CSV option; but, we had some developer Raid laying around and exterminated those accordingly.

Referral Bonus Changes

You’ll also notice changes to our referral bonus system. We recently updated our referral system so that newly referred users and their referral will both receive $5 in bitcoin; but, only once that referral has transacted $100 or more on Purse. To get more specific information on our referral system, go here.

We’re continual seeing healthy growth, and people love our referral system; this ensures we can continue to give out free bitcoin to all those seeking new ways to save money, or simply spend digital assets, like Bitcoin.

That’s all for this update. Keep checking back as we unload new goodies to make your online shopping more satisfying than ever. Take some time to relax this Summer, perhaps buy yourself a nice hammock, and some new books to read in it? Or, if you plan on entertaining, there’s some giant Margarita cups with your name on them. Hop to it, and get to saving!

But, most importantly, have fun being at the forefront of this digital currency explosion.
