A new way of shopping surprised Americans in one of the commercial breaks of the Super Bowl 2023, and now it has become a download success, surpassing two retail giants in the United States. This is the Temu application, which is promoted as a platform that allows customers to “shop like a billionaire.” Smartwatches for $11? Wireless headphones for less than $10? A sports HD camera for $6! There are some prices that ill leave you jaw-dropped, and I can imagine how the guys at Walmart must be a little worried.
Because, until today, Walmart and other retailers were firmly leading the US market, with robust online shopping platforms, and the arrival of Temu stirs up the waters. Is this for the benefit of the customers? We will tell you more about this successful application that, to date, has been downloaded in more than 10 million devices on Android alone.
Walmart Should Be Worried About This New Competitor
The first thing you have to know is that Temu is being downloaded at a dizzying pace, and you can buy everything, this furniture and decoration items for your home. Although it is launched in September 2022, the ad that appeared at the Super Bowl (which cost several million dollars) has been aimed at unseating Walmart and Amazon from the top 10 most used shopping apps.
The owner company, PDD Holdings, has set aside more than $1 billion to market its new app that is attracting buyers of ultra-cheap products.
What can you buy on Temu (which has a website, beside the successful app)? Well, there is, for example, appliances that are offered with discounts as high as 90%. You can find clothes and garments with discounts up to 85%. For your home, there are furniture pieces, appliances, and smart devices that are up to 90% marked down. Oh Walmart, you are losing me, bro.
Walmart, Amazon, Watch Out: They’re Coming After You
If you search with a little attention and patience (you have to learn to find the treasures) you can find many new cheap appliances and items for your kitchen. For the living room you will find decorative objects such as lamps, carpets, or pillows. For example, the top-selling throw blanket from Temu is priced at $6.69, or a Nordic style blanket is $9.99. These prices, man, you won’t buy them anywhere, and even Walmart or Amazon are having a hard time to follow Temu’s rhythm.
You can decorate your dining room or your living room with some beautiful paintings made of linen: a set of six with edible plant leaf decorations costs only $4.49, or a kit of two paintings with musical scores costs only $2. Seriously, I tell you that Temu is going to give a lot to talk about, and you are going to have to try it. At the very least, you are going to put aside your purchases at Walmart and Amazon a little to venture into this new world.
From fashion to home decor, handmade crafts, beauty & cosmetics, clothing, shoes, and more, the products you’ll love are just a tap away. Try the Temu app or website and find out what you can have new in your life.
