Founded in 2015 and headquartered in Hoboken, New Jersey, Jet.com is a shopping club offering discounted prices to members based on quantity of items purchased. Built on three simple principles – trust, transparency, and fairness- Jet.com delivers radical price innovation in eCommerce. By optimizing the underlying economics of online shopping and unbundling the embedded retail costs that drive up price, Jet.com created an entirely new business model that works better for both shoppers and retailers. Unlike any other marketplace out there, Jet empowers both shoppers and retailers to make eCommerce more efficient. One aspect in which they accomplish this is by eliminating product reviews and reviewing each product. Using seller success rate, complaint rate, as well as return rate, Jet.com is able to determine whether or not the product should stay. By empowering seller and buyer Jet.com has created an atmosphere that fosters their three principles – trust, transparency, and fairness.

- Realtime pricing algorithm
