LOUISVILLE, KY — The social platform for outdoor enthusiasts, GoWild, has added a new ability for members to buy gear directly through its platform with free shipping on every order. The new e-commerce platform launches with nearly 10,000 products from leading brands in hunting and fishing, including Garmin, Vortex Optics, Rocky Boots, Abu Garcia, Berkley, YUM, St. Croix, Daiwa, and Rapala.
In addition to free shipping, GoWild offers free returns and competitive pricing.
“Gear research is happening online via social media,” said GoWild Cofounder and CEO Brad Luttrell. “When our members find gear that has social proof, we’re now empowering them to purchase via a company that speaks the language and is as passionate about hunting, fishing and the outdoors as they are. And we’re using the money to give back.”
A percentage of each purchase through GoWild will also be donated to Raise ‘Em Outdoors, a camp that teaches children and their families to hunt, fish, camp and enjoy the outdoors.
GoWild’s new social commerce checkout also allows consumers to shop thousands of stores and 360,000 products at once, even for stores and brands GoWild doesn’t carry directly. Shoppers can see prices for products across a multitude of online retailers, as well as setup price monitoring for wishlist items, which notifies members of significant price swings.
“It’s really this simple – buying gear can be intimidating and it’s a barrier to the outdoors,” said Luttrell. “If we can give shoppers more information, such as feedback and real stories from other GoWild members using the products, people feel more comfortable and are more likely to get outside. Sometimes it’s less about reading every detail of a spec sheet and more about just knowing this is a good product that other people use. GoWild can do that better than any other e-commerce experience.”
GoWild will double its product offering by January 2021 and has more brands lined up for launch by the end of 2020. GoWild is giving away one Garmin feñix 5 Plus watch per week to celebrate the product launch. Every product purchased directly through GoWild qualifies as one entry.
GoWild is a social media platform for outdoor enthusiasts. GoWild has the most expansive collection of outdoor gear on the internet, with more than 350K products to date. Members can tag gear on trophies or activity logs, find reviews of products and find trending gear among other outdoorsmen and women. To learn more about GoWild, visit timetogowild.com.
