Free "Groupon" Plugin for Business & Brand Blogs

On the heels of last week’s launch of the premium Group Buy plugin for WordPress blogs from, GetShopped has launched a similar but free (for now) group-buy plugin that works with the popular WP e-Commerce plugin.

You’ll remember that Groupon itself started out as customised WordPress blog, so if you run a blog for your brand or business – why not monetise your efforts by hosting Group Buy deals?  The GetShopped Group Buy plugin comes with a Groupon styled theme – and is an early beta version, so it’ll need testing and optimising before going live on your blog, but it might just be your quick social commerce win for 2011 (download here).

  1. Good article and liking the site overall…Groupon is getting beast-like. Have you looked at the new platform from a digital group in NYC? These guys also do ‘daily deal’ promotions for client brands and a gift collection. There specialty is 50% off face value gift card codes via email with a super clean check out process. WeShop received $4.25 million in funding in August, shortly went to beta, and officially launched last month, already surpassing projections for the holiday season (and it ain’t over yet, since e-cards come in about a day). Could be a company to watch closely.
