Beijing-based English-language wholesale B2C e-commerce platform LightInTheBox (NYSE: LITB) has launched a "Sale Clock" mobile flash sales app, providing the same functionality offered on the company's flash sales channel launched in December 2013 in mobile app form. The Sale Clock app carries products from the flash sale channel on the LightInTheBox site, such as apparel, bags, and cosmetics. Each product is displayed for one week, and daily updates refresh the product selection on the app.
The Sale Clock app supports payment from 14 different currencies through credit card, debit card, electronic wire transfer, Western Union, and Paypal. Shipping options include international logistics companies DHL, EMS, and UPS.
The Sale Clock app offers support for 17 different languages, including English, French, Spanish, and German.
