Online fashion retailer provides a 12 percent markdown
LONDON, March 23, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Although students are not a large part of its customer base, Sammydress (www.sammydress.com) is doing its best to lend a helping hand. The Asia-based online fashion retailer, with customers all over the world, offers discounted prices to the general public. Since last July, Sammydress has started offering a 10 percent savings to students and the rate was recently bumped up to 12 percent.

The discount applies to any students in the US and the UK. Students must first register at Student Beans (www.studentbeans.com), a UK-based social media platform for youngsters and adolescents. At Student Beans, they will be asked to provide their school's e-mail, university name and other related information.
"Students generally don't have a lot of money to spend on clothing so we're trying to give them a hand and offer some discounts on our already low prices," said Lucy Wang, marketing director for Sammydress. "After the student discounts were introduced last year, we saw our sales to this group jump by more than 25 percent.
"So we're increasing our customer base and the students are receiving great deals on fashionable clothing. Based on our success with this program, we're looking into offering a student discount to other countries and maybe even increasing the amount of savings."
ZAFUL, a sister site of Sammydress, is also considering student discounts and is currently negotiating with Student Beans and UNiDAYS, a student organization the US. "We are hoping to launch a student discount program that is comparable to the one that Sammydress is currently running," said Gerhard Liu, ZAFUL's channel manager.
Sammydress is an international online fashion wear marketplace that offers excellent quality at discounted prices. The company offers the latest styles in women and men's apparels and accessories. Over the past year, Sammydress set up its own photography team, hiring foreign models to ensure that the photos on the site accurately depict the items for sale. The company also took major steps to address the issue of size confusion, especially in the US and the UK.
