Dear ShopDrop users, we are thrilled to announce that after 4 months of toil, we have finally released the next version of ShopDrop app. The goal of this post is to walk you through the updates and to make sure you know how to use all the new features. Make sure to go to the app store and update your ShopDrop app, if you haven’t done so already. As always, we are looking forward to hearing your feedback
Our first note of appreciation goes to our talented, patient and brilliant CTO, William DeMuro, who spent countless hours perfecting the ShopDrop app so that shoppers can enjoy the app and get the most use of it. Bill says: “Working on ShopDrop is one of my favorite projects, because our users are so involved in the creative process. Share the app with your friends – the more the merrier – and most importantly, enjoy!”
Our second word of thanks goes to Tomas Uribe, our brilliant UX/UI Designer, who managed to change the buttons just so, and create a visual flow that is so appealing, I sometimes go to the app just for fun!
Finally, thank you – dear ShopDrop users – who believed in us, used our app, told us how to improve the app, and helped us get to this point. Please enjoy it, rate and review it on the app store and share it with friends! Below is an instruction guide for the new features – use’m & enjoy!
Select the hamburger in the top left corner of the feed page.
You will see the filter pop up.
You can now choose the filer option to see sales that meet specific criteria:
a. men, women, children
b. happening now
c. near me (select radius)
e. category (contemporary, shoes, bags, evening, etc)
You can now comment on sales, see what other people thought and recommended.
To access the comment click on the speech box on every sale (either from the main page or from the detail page).
A pop-up will appear which will prompt you to type a comment – after you are done typing – you can add an image.
Walla – now others can see what you think of the sale.
PAY THROUGH THE APP & EARN REWARDS
Now you will be able to pay through the ShopDrop app at any partnering sales.
When a sale is partnering with us, you will see a large “PAY WITH SHOPDROP” on the screen.
Selecting it will allow you to pay with credit card or apple pay. Paying through ShopDrop is completely safe.
We are using STRIPE as our processor. The good news is you will be able to apply ShopDrop credit toward real purchases.
You can let us know how and when you want alerts about your sample sales.
Your choices are push notifications, sms messages and emails.
To set your preferences, click on the profile section – bottom right.
Then click on the settings icon – top right. There you will see three buttons – each one for a different notification.
Make sure to select the ones that are relevant to you.
Update your profile picture & name on your profile page so that friends will know who you are and which sales you like.
You can update your profile by selecting the profile section in the bottom right – and then clicking on the edit profile button.
That is here you will be able to customize your username and profile picture.
Select your favorite brands so you could receive alerts when that brand is having a sample sale.
Remember to make sure your notifications are on (see point 4) . To select favorite brands, go to profile (bottom right icon),
select settings (top right icon) and click on MY BRANDS. That is where you select your favorite brands. Remember to press SAVE when you’re done.
The map feature allows you to search for sample sales right near you. We updated this feature so now you only see events happening now.
You can access the map by clicking on the second button on the bottom to the left.

Now you can earn credit toward shopping when you share ShopDrop with your friends!
