SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–ContextLogic Inc. (d/b/a Wish) (NASDAQ: WISH), one of the world’s largest mobile ecommerce platforms, today announced a collaboration with Nasdaq on the installation of a co-branded vending machine shopping experience at 4 Times Square (corner of Broadway & 43rd Street, NY 10036), which will be open from Dec. 16-18.
Packed with “22 popular products for 2022” that can be purchased on the Wish platform, the pop up is intended to give New York city residents and visitors an opportunity to shop for their last-minute holiday must-haves. The vending machine will include tech essentials such as motion sensor night lights, portable power banks and LED light up beanies.
Stock will be maintained throughout the day, and the machine will be regularly sanitized to comply with COVID-19 safety regulations. Shoppers will be able to pay contactless by card.
100% of sales from the vending machine will be donated to The Robin Hood Relief Fund – New York’s largest poverty-fighting organization.
To drive more donations from Wish and Nasdaq, shoppers are invited to share a photo of their vending machine purchase with the hashtag #WISH22 on Instagram or Twitter. For every photo posted, Wish and Nasdaq will donate 5X of each purchase price to Robin Hood Relief Fund, up to a total donation of $28,000.
As an additional way to ring in the holiday season, Wish is also offering a one-time promo code – WISH22 – for a 22% discount across the Wish app between Dec. 16-18.
