On Pose, users share their outfits in stream format and can include tags with their photos that indicate the brand of any given item. Now you can actually shop the pieces worn by top users/style influencers through those tags. Sort of like what Pinterest will probably end up doing.
Pose has always been pretty ahead of the game in terms of anticipating where fashion tech is heading, and doing it early on. Along with a sleek new design and super easy-to-use drag and drop features, a new “shop” tab will live on the left side of the screen. Posers’ tags will link to ecommerce sites like Neiman Marcus or Shopbop through an affiliate program that gives selected users a pretty decent commission on items purchased through their “poses.” According to TechCrunch, Pose will take a small chunk but the user will get the “majority of the commission.” Not a bad deal, right?
So who qualifies for this money-making program? “Pose screens and approves select Pose users to be shoppable,” a rep told us. “It is based on the users’ quality content more than their followers, though often the best photos get the most traction.”
