London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2018 -- London-based shoppable video platform Heartface has been selected to exhibit at the 2018 Web Summit in Lisbon, Portugal this November on the ALPHA Program – a track specifically designed for promising startups to present themselves to the huge audience of 70,000+ attendees from over 170 countries at the largest annual technology conference in the world.
Heartface is a social video platform for shoppers that lets fashion and sneaker enthusiasts watch product videos and shop from hundreds of retailers without going to an external webpage. "Web Summit is huge, and Heartface being a part of the ALPHA Program that boasts success stories of the likes of Uber and Trello is incredibly exciting." says Heartface CEO Urvesh Vasani. "Our most important goal from day one has been to solve what YouTube (among others) has failed to – which is to build a seamless experience of watching your favourite influencers review, recommend, show-off the products they love and getting your hands on them for yourself."
The Web Summit ALPHA program presents an excellent opportunity for Heartface to create global awareness and gain valuable industry feedback.
Heartface is the world's first (and only) shoppable video platform for fashion and sneaker enthusiasts. Currently available only on iOS, Heartface saves video creators the trouble of signing up for and managing affiliate network accounts with a simple "Search-to-Tag" feature that lets creators monetize their product-related video content on Heartface by tagging products to their video and earn affiliate commissions (among other rewards). Shoppers on the other hand, unlike YouTube or Instagram, are not sent to a webpage to complete a purchase of a product they see in the video – instead, Heartface lets you place orders with a wide range of stores all using Apple Pay without ever leaving the app.
