American Apparel Teams Up With eBay

american-apparel-partners-with-ebay-for-online-store.jpg

Shopping for American Apparel online is about to get easier.

The hipster retailer is teaming up with eBay to launch their own storefront on the auction website starting in September.

When asked about the reasoning behind the new partnership, CEO Dov Charney explained:

"There are more than 30,000 searches for American Apparel on eBay each month and right now those customers are not buying from us directly. I’m excited to connect that demand with our vertically integrated production and distribution platform to create a new revenue channel for American Apparel."

Is it really that difficult for people to go their actual website AmericanApparel.net???

Besides, we all know the real reason why people are browsing eBay for American Apparel: to get it for less.

While analysts are still crunching numbers to figure out how good 2010 really was, the early reports are promising.

According to the government, sales jumped 6.6% from 2009 thanks to online transactions.

To put that in perspective, sales haven't surged like that since the internet boom which was almost 11 years ago.

Pretty impressive!

Lets hope it continues.

Last minute Christmas shoppers were busy clicking their mouses this past weekend.

For the week ending December 19th, comScore reports sales totaled $5.5 billion, up 17% from the previous weekend.

Dayum!

The numbers are impressive, but not completely surprising. The weekend before Christmas is usually the biggest for online retailers because of their shipping deadlines.
