CommentSold, the leading commercial live selling platform that has generated $3B+ in lifetime GMV by enabling thousands of retail businesses to unlock sales growth through live selling, today announced it has been recognized by G2 as the Leading Live Commerce Platform and a Fall 2022 Momentum Leader, and is the category leader in both popularity and satisfaction. G2 is the largest and most trusted software marketplace globally.
This is the first time G2 has ranked live commerce software, helping to demonstrate the opportunity live selling brings for retailers and ecommerce businesses. In fact, the live selling industry is projected to hit $57 billion in the U.S. by 2025. In this complex, rapidly evolving space, CommentSold is the undisputed North American leader, serving over 4,000 small to enterprise-sized retailers, with 100M+ items sold. Further cementing its category leadership, CommentSold recently launched Videeo, a bolt-on, fully customizable solution for larger brands that want to add live video commerce to their existing commerce stack.
“As ecommerce growth is showing signs of slowing down, engaging consumers is more important than ever. Unfortunately, typical ecommerce engagement is rather reactive and not always interactive. Live commerce is a new type of software that aims to solve these challenges using live video streaming,” said Gabriel Gheorghiu – Research Principal (ERP, Project Management, eCommerce, GRC) at G2. “Since our mission at G2 is to continuously improve our taxonomy, we recently added a new category for this type of software to help buyers find and compare live commerce solutions. We expect this market to grow rapidly and live commerce to become an essential part of e-commerce strategies.”
With 69 positive reviews and a 4.8 star rating on G2, CommentSold reviewers highlight its ease of use, customer service and full-service offerings. Per one reviewer: “CommentSold helps us make money after we close for the day. We are now able to sell from our Facebook and Instagram posts and our app, and it is all connected to our in-store point-of-sale system as well.”
CommentSold reviewers rated the platform a 9.2 out of 10 for ease of use, 9.4 for quality of support and 8.9 for ease of setup. More information about the G2 rankings are available here. G2’s Live Commerce category focuses on offerings that provide live streamlining platforms companies can use to sell online, allow viewers to interact and engage with presenters in real time and include checkout options that can be accessed during the live stream.
“We’re honored to have been ranked the Best Live Commerce Software and a Fall 2022 Momentum Leader by G2 – this recognition is made all the more special because G2 opting to rank live selling software for the first time ever brings the industry to the next level, helping to show the tremendous opportunity for retailers and ecommerce businesses who capitalize on this growing trend,” said Finn Faldi, Chief Business Officer of CommentSold. “As live selling technology becomes increasingly ubiquitous with brands and retailers, we look forward to continuing to be the preferred solution as we stay steadfast in providing high-quality support while driving ongoing product innovation.”
