We're on a mission to make commerce at the point of discovery work for brands, creators, and shoppers.
For brands and creators: Ownit's landing pages increase conversion for direct-to-consumer brands by enabling a one-tap purchase of any product in paid ads, email, text, and influencer marketing.
For shoppers: The company's frictionless checkout experience helps shoppers quickly make the best purchase decision by showing pricing and purchase options all in one place.

Our Approach

Ownit brings together some of the biggest companies that generally do not work together.

Ownit integrates with commerce platforms including Shopify and Amazon, and payment gateways like Apple Pay, Google Pay, Shop Pay and PayPal to allow direct-to-consumer brands to grow their business on social platforms like Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and TikTok.

“We were early investors in leading social and commerce platforms. There's no question that the next step is to bridge these two platforms together and we believe Ownit is the company to make this a reality,” said Hans Tung, Managing Partner at GGV Capital. “Payman, Evan, and Joel bring unique expertise in the sector, have a shared vision around commerce at the point of discovery, and have assembled an amazing team to relentlessly pursue that vision.”
