ChompOn was founded in January of 2010 by Sam Yam and Ruven Chu. The site was intended to provide an open platform for social flash sales. The creators wanted to keep ChompOn as user friendly as possible. The ChompOn available today is very simple, the user can simply install it and they are ready to begin adding group deals. ChompOn has numerous features, but all are geared towards improving the user experience and making it easier for the website owner to offer more deals to visitors.
ChompOn’s simplicity makes it stand out. Rather than creating yet another group buying website, the creators of ChompOn saw a need for a tool that could streamline the site creation process. ChompOn gives site owners a quick and easy way to build their own group buy websites, even when pulling deals from multiple locations. This tool integrates with the existing website so the visitor’s experience is not altered, just enhanced.
