Tanga Integrates with ChannelAdvisor to Create a Personalized E-commerce Experience for Deal-seeking Shoppers
Chandler, AZ—August 29, 2016—Tanga (www.tanga.com), the marketplace for deal-seekers, today announced that it has completed its integration with the ChannelAdvisor platform as part of the company’s Access ChannelAdvisor program. Many retailers use the ChannelAdvisor platform to list, manage and track their merchandise sales across hundreds of online channels like Amazon, eBay and Walmart.
Tanga’s integration with ChannelAdvisor provides a new outlet for marketplace sellers, allowing them to broaden their reach by easily exposing their catalog to Tanga’s deal-hunting customers.
Tanga’s business model stands apart as it caters to a different customer than other marketplaces. Unlike marketplaces that rely on considered purchases of its customers, Tanga tempts deal-savvy shoppers with best-of-web pricing on branded merchandise.
Tanga’s secret sauce is personalization. Many marketplaces strive to create a personalized shopping experience by analyzing shopper patterns and product data to make recommendations. Tanga takes a different approach, adding human insights to deep product knowledge and customer behavioral analysis, creating an individual shopping experience.
“Access ChannelAdvisor allows all manner of e-commerce channels to integrate with the ChannelAdvisor platform, so retailers can access more channels of demand like Tanga,” said Mark Vandegrift, ChannelAdvisor vice president of product management for Marketplaces. “Tanga is a go-to marketplace for deal seekers, and it provides a great opportunity for retailers to showcase their products to Tanga’s loyal customer base. We are excited to provide a seamless retail-to-customer experience on Tanga so our customers can expand their online presence to reach Tanga’s deal-seekers.”
The addition of a marketplace to Tanga’s format of exclusively featured deals has opened up a wealth of opportunities for Tanga’s shoppers and vendors. For Tanga’s customers, the new marketplace products mean even better product matches. The company’s focus on personalization and the increased depth of its product catalog means a unique shopping experience, punctuated by the thrill of discovery at every click. For vendors and other partners on ChannelAdvisor, Tanga’s new marketplace format means that their best deals will have the undivided attention of deal-seekers nationwide. Tanga will continue featuring the best curated daily deals and flash sales on its front page.
“We couldn’t be more excited to offer our shoppers an expanded catalogue of deals that came with Tanga’s transformation into a marketplace,” said Jeremy Young, Tanga’s CEO. “Integration with ChannelAdvisor is an important step in realizing our vision of matching products to people. With the dramatically expanded product offering we will be able to even better deliver the experience of the high-value, ultra-human personalized shopping that today’s shoppers crave.”
Tanga is an online marketplace for deal-seekers that specializes in matching products to people. The company makes shopping fun again by filtering out the noise and clutter and showing each customer products that perfectly suit their personal tastes and interests. With this philosophy, Tanga became a go-to destination for the customer who loves a great deal. Tanga’s founder and CEO Jeremy Young has built from scratch one the fastest-growing privately held companies in Arizona (#14 2015 ACE Awards) and the largest bootstrapped company in its market. The company has grown 241% in the past three years and has been named to the Inc 5000 list of fastest growing privately-held companies three years in a row (2014-2016). Tanga was honored by Phoenix Business Journal in 2014 and 2015 as one of Arizona’s 25 fastest growing private companies. In May this year, Jeremy Young was named the 2016 CEO of the Year by Phoenix Business Journal at the AZ Top Tech Exec Awards.

We at Tanga take pride in our company culture that includes a Movie Poster wall, a Baby Pictures wall, daily planking, weekly meditation, corporate Bitmoji, dress up days, community service, monthly off-site events and more! Our main cheerleader and CEO Jeremy Young aka TangaMonkey mapped it out for Entrepreneur.com. Dive in!
“Serial entrepreneur Jeremy Young has started and sold a series of companies for up to eight figures each, including comedic T-shirt retailer, LOLShirts.com and artisan retailer BelleChic. Currently, he’s the CEO of daily deals company Tanga, in Chandler, Ariz. The veteran entrepreneur sees company culture as the key ingredient in a successful startup.
He says a strong culture boosts revenues, profits, stock price and valuation. However, “culture isn’t something that comes naturally,” he said at Phoenix Startup Week, an event sponsored by Chase for Business. “As a CEO, you have to think about culture and build it.”
During his keynote address at the event, Young shared his opinion on 13 ways a company culture can get derailed in a startup…."

“Someone tells me they doubled the traffic to their website through marketing. I want to know, was it from 100 users to 200 users or from 1 million to 2 million?” says Matt Verbin, CFO and hiring manager of e-commerce platform Tanga.com. “Or they say they cut costs by doing X, Y and Z. Great, but what financial impact did that have? Hiring managers love seeing dollars and quantities of impact.”

Internet Retailer Magazine, February 2016
“Tanga has a unique view on marketplace management and knows how important inventory controls are. The mass merchant sells its own goods on Tanga.com and other marketplaces, while also operating its own marketplace that allows other merchants to list products for sale as daily deals or limited-time flash sales. It works with hundreds of vendors and carries a frequently rotating range of products at low prices meant to drive impulse purchases.
“We have company revenues of deep eight-figures and strong double-digit growth,” says Jeremy Young, founder and CEO, declining to be more specific. “We act both as a platform for smaller retailers to sell their products and as a retailer selling our inventory on different platforms.” Tanga recently began working with ChannelAdvisor to add Tanga’s own products to marketplaces including Amazon, eBay, Jet and Trade Me, an auction/classifieds marketplace in New Zealand, he says.
Tanga’s staff had to tackle the categorization issue when it began selling on marketplaces because it wanted to make the single feed more usable across the marketplaces. “We streamlined our categorization based on common search terms and generally accepted product terminology,” Young says. “This allows for products such as Beats by Dre headphones to also be found using search terms such as ‘earphones’ and ‘earbuds.’ Actual product categorization has also been significantly overhauled to avoid unnecessary specification, which can lead to products being difficult to find via our navigational headings.” This was, and continues to be, a labor and time-intensive process that Tanga’s staff tackles manually, Young says."
