Wantering is designed to solve one of the most basic problems in online shopping: how do you find something to buy when you don’t know exactly what you want. In order to solve this problem, Wantering has spent the last 18 months building some unique technology.

The first piece is the crawling framework that allows Wantering to gather up-to-date pricing, stock, and other metadata about over 500,000 products in near-real-time. When a product goes on sale across the web, Wantering is the first to know.

The next piece is its proprietary coolhunting algorithm which uses over 100mm social signals to figure out which are the hottest products for any result.

The final piece is a beautiful interface that makes it fast and easy to browse for fashion on your desktop, tablet, or smartphone.
