    Former Snap Executive Bets Social Shopping Will Finally Catch On

    (Bloomberg) -- Verishop Inc., a startup led by former Snap Inc. executive Imran Khan, unveiled a new social shopping app on Tuesday that lets users buy clothes directly from their news feed.The service combines the capabilities of an e-commerce website Verishop launched last year with a mobile app that functions like Pinterest and TikTok, where users view, save and follow images and videos that interest them.There have been several failed social-shopping initiatives in the past decade, including attempts by Facebook Inc. and the spectacular rise and fall of Fab.com. But the approach has gained fresh momentum recently. Poshmark Inc. and Depop Ltd. have made selling used clothing online more social, while Facebook announced another try in May.Khan said previous social-shopping businesses focused too much on the fun aspects initially, rather than building the tricky-but-necessary e-commerce underpinnings. Verishop reversed the approach by creating a retail website first with free two-day shipping and returns.“People said, ‘what are you doing? It sounds like a boring e-commerce company,’” Khan said. “But we wanted to make sure that we get the boring parts right. And then focus on the fun part.”Roughly a year after the e-commerce site rolled out, Verishop is now launching the social app. It will have more than 600 brands, including Oribe hair care products and Madewell and Hill City apparel. The app will also feature influencers from the worlds of fashion, interior design and cooking. It will have no ads. Instead, Verishop will take a cut of sales completed through the service.“What we’re bringing is entertainment and discovery. I don’t expect them to buy every time they come to our platform,” Khan said.The launch comes at a time when the Covid-19 pandemic has shut many shopping malls and brick-and-mortar stores. Users have flocked to social media services and e-commerce sites such as TikTok, Facebook, Amazon.com Inc. and EBay Inc. Verishop hopes to grab some of this increased online business.The startup, which has raised about $30 million, is introducing social aspects to the app slowly. At launch, users will be able to follow brands and curate their feed. In the future, the company plans to let individuals upload their own content featuring products that can be purchased.Khan was chief strategy officer at Snap for more than three years, when the social messaging company was growing quickly and completed an initial public offering. Before that, he was a tech investment banker at Credit Suisse. He and his wife, Cate Khan, a former executive at Amazon, founded Verishop.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

    Prosus Seeks to Resume M&A Drive With EBay Classifieds Bid

    (Bloomberg) -- Prosus NV is hoping EBay Inc. classifieds won’t be the auction that got away.Having lost an $8 billion battle to buy Just Eat Plc to Takeaway.com NV in January, the e-commerce group is the party to beat in a hotly-contested auction process for the EBay business, according to people familiar with the matter.By pursuing the EBay unit, potentially valued at as much as $10 billion, Prosus is looking to seal its biggest purchase since spinning off from South African technology giant Naspers Ltd. last year. Prosus holds assets including a stake in Chinese Internet giant Tencent Holdings Ltd., as well as businesses from Brazil to Germany in industries such as online food delivery and classified advertising.Naspers opted to separate Prosus -- in which it retains a majority holding -- in the hopes shareholders would assign more value to its investments around the world. While the listing in Amsterdam was a chance for Prosus to begin an aggressive acquisition spree, a big deal has yet to materialize.It also missed an opportunity to expand in the U.S. after the combined Just Eat Takeaway.com NV agreed to acquire Grubhub Inc. for $7.3 billion in June.With about $7 billion in cash and ample liquidity from a long-list of lenders, Prosus has the financial power to pursue large mergers and acquisitions and is on the lookout for opportunities, according to Chief Executive Officer Bob van Dijk.“I am excited about the deals that might happen because it would really reinforce the business we have,” he said in a phone interview this week. “The pipeline is looking quite healthy.”Prosus is competing with two bidders for EBay’s classified-advertising unit, according to people familiar with the matter. One is a consortium comprising buyout groups Blackstone Group Inc., Permira and Hellman & Friedman LLC and the other is Oslo-based online marketplace Adevinta ASA. Even some backers of these rival bids view Prosus as the heavy favorite, the people said.Representatives for EBay and Prosus declined to comment.EBay is seeking a sale of the unit at a time when market turmoil has hampered financing for leveraged buyouts, forcing companies to put a number of bidding processes on hold. The sale process is advanced and a decision on a winner is likely to happen in July, the people said.Prosus’s strong financial position and backing by Naspers will give it an edge in a tough environment for dealmaking. Winning the EBay bid could just be the fillip it needs for more M&A. Prosus’s shares declined 0.7% to 82.20 euros as of 12:01 p.m. Wednesday in Amsterdam.(Updates share price in final paragraph.

    Etsy Stock Has Tripled Since March -- How Much Higher Can It Go?

    April changed the conversation around Etsy (NASDAQ: ETSY), the third-party e-commerce site that had largely trended down throughout 2019 as analysts questioned whether it could find any growth catalysts. The moment came when the federal government reversed course and said people should, in fact, wear face masks when out in public to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the infectious disease specialist who serves as President Trump's point man on the coronavirus pandemic, recently confirmed that the government did not initially recommend mask-wearing for the general public due to shortages of masks at the time.

    EBay’s Alleged Stalkers Exposed After Boston Couple’s Sleuthing

    (Bloomberg) -- Last summer, a suburban Boston couple who publish an online newsletter about EBay Inc. began calling the Natick Police Department to report peculiar and menacing forms of harassment: graffiti on their fence; mysterious deliveries of a funeral wreath and a book on surviving a spouse’s death; phony online advertisements about parties and yard sales that summoned strangers to their home.The culprits left few clues, and police initially dismissed the reports as pranks. So the frustrated couple took matters into their own hands and began collecting evidence. Their home security camera caught video of a Ford Explorer parked near their house. They gathered license plate numbers from a black Dodge Caravan and a silver GMC they suspected of tailing them.The tips prompted the police to take their concerns more seriously. Investigators linked rented vehicles to EBay employees and uncovered a stealthy campaign to frighten the couple, whose newsletter, EcommerceBytes, is an influential information source for the millions of merchants who peddle goods on the San Jose, California-based company’s marketplace.“The victims in this case were proactive and diligent,” Natick Police Lt. Cara Rossi said. “Once they had photos of a car that they felt was surveilling them, they did counter-surveillance of their own, and detectives now had a lead to follow. This lead led them to Ebay.”This week federal prosecutors unveiled an indictment charging six EBay employees with conducting a harassment campaign against the couple. The indictment also mentioned an “Executive 1” and “Executive 2,” which Bloomberg earlier identified as, respectively, former EBay Chief Executive Officer Devin Wenig and former public relations chief Steven Wymer. Neither Wenig nor Wymer were charged with crimes.Ina and David Steiner have been publishing their newsletter, previously called AuctionBytes, since 1999. They delve into nitty-gritty details important to small merchants selling products on EBay, where 174 million shoppers around the world spend $85 billion a year.The Steiners’ longevity has made their newsletter an influential part of the EBay community even as CEOs have come and gone. Merchants get updates about their livelihoods and provide news tips. Ina Steiner, a dogged reporter, is the newsletter’s editor; David Steiner is the publisher. Ina made such frequent calls to EBay’s communications department on behalf of sellers that some EBay employees joked she should be put on the customer service payroll.But somewhere along the way, the relationship between the Steiners and EBay soured. Wenig was trying to fend off activist investors bent on breaking up the company and had become increasingly sensitive to tough media coverage.Steiner publishes regular stories about the site, often with critical commentary. Online comments beneath the stories routinely become a no-holds-barred bashing of EBay executives.Last August, Steiner published a story about a lawsuit EBay filed alleging Amazon.com Inc. employees created EBay accounts for the sole purpose of persuading its merchants to sell their goods on Amazon instead. “EBay’s CEO has been unable to stop a decline in marketplace sales, but trying to dissuade sellers from turning to Amazon (and trying to get Amazon to stop recruiting sellers) may not be the best tactic,” Steiner wrote.There were 55 comments beneath the story, including one from someone called “thievesBay” that said: “Poor eBay. The little puppy continues trying to nip at the heels of the big dog. This will go nowhere just like their last attempt.”In April of last year, according to the indictment, Wymer texted Wenig: “We are going to crush this lady.” The following month, during an exchange regarding Ina Steiner’s reporting, Wenig texted Wymer: “I couldn’t care less what she says.” Then, seconds later, he added, “Take her down.”Before long, according to the indictment, the harassment campaign was underway, with the alleged perpetrators sending live cockroaches to the couple and trying to put a GPS tracking device on their Toyota Rav4.Prosecutors claim EBay’s security director James Baugh and his underling David Harville led the elaborate campaign with help from four other EBay employees. Even as the Steiners gathered evidence that directed police toward them, the employees allegedly plotted to throw police off the trail by erasing messages and social media accounts, lying to investigators and trying to cast the Steiners as “crazy.”It didn’t work. In late August, the alleged harassers hatched a plan using the messaging platform WhatsApp to contact the Natick Police Department and the Steiners pretending to offer EBay’s help with the investigation in order to glean information and steer the probe elsewhere.Ina Steiner wasn’t having it. Shortly after connecting with the couple by phone, one of the alleged harassers messaged his colleagues, according to the indictment: “[Victim 1] said talk to the detective and then hung up the phone.” Days later, EBay put Baugh, Harville and one other employee on administrative leave after collecting work phones that were turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
