Walmart Stores, a division of Walmart (WMT) has just launched a new shopping site at Goodies.co.
And no Walmart doesn’t own the Matching .Com.
The store which launched in “Exclusive Beta” this week, has unique product offering. Sign up for $7 a month and you get samples of new food products, you participate in surveys which earns you points to buy full sized versions of the product you like.
Here is how Goodies.co described its offering:
1. Subscribe to Goodies Co.
Receive a Goodies Co. Taster’s box for just $7/month (no extra shipping or handling charges).
2. Receive your Taster’s Box
We bill subscribers on the 2nd of the month. Your box will ship 2-3 weeks later.
3. Taste everything in the box
Enjoy the handpicked selections from the Goodies Co. team.
4. Review & buy what you tasted
Come back to Goodies.co and review and buy the products you love and earn points.
Walmart is no stranger to online commerce and their use of a .Co, without also acquiring the matching .com (although obviously they have the funds to do so) is something that should give another big boost to the .Co registry.
