BUYGATHER is a Qatari based company incubated by Qatar Business Incubation Center (QBIC) which is founded by Qatar Development Bank (QDB).
BuyGather won the Qatar Business Incubation Center (QBIC) Demo Day and is currently going through the activation phase for 3 months, which will then be followed by the final incubation for 2 years.
Founded by Shadi Hudaifa and Ali Al-Marri, BuyGather aims to enhance the Qatar market through providing deals and discounts. It also helps people to upgrade their lifestyles.
The business model is very simple but different from all the competitors in the market.
BuyGather is available online as a website and has launched its instant deals service. The website has a very friendly user interface with a platform of a typical e-commerce site containing all main functionalities like shopping cart, products review, companies profile pages, etc. The concept of BuyGather is to help provide consumers and businesses with different offers and deals in Qatar.
The customers will get the coupons from the website for free. The business on the other hand will have a page in the website that shows details about the business and all offers they want to list. It helps the business showcase their products in such a way that it will be in our home page for the entire week. Apart from the website is the extensive Facebook & Instagram advertisement strategy (offers will be advertised based on their efficiency) and the e mail marketing for the business.
How it works:
Since the concept of BuyGather is to help provide consumers and businesses with different offers and deals in Qatar, customers will get the coupons from the website for free and they will come to the business holding either printed version of the coupon or they can simply show them on their phones. The vendor or the business has access to the website, where they will have a page to validate and redeem the coupons.
The customers need not pay anything upon getting the coupons. They simply have to present the coupon and then from there they can pay directly to the business. Example, there is a product worth 200QR and is offered at 100QR, the customer has 7 days to claim the coupon to the business and will pay the 100QR worth of the deal offered online.
