TEXT-TO-BUY: Alter launches M-Commerce Site

Today we take a step into the future of retail, as we proudly launch our official
Mobile Commerce web site and service.
"Mobile Commerce is any transaction, involving the transfer of ownership or rights to use goods and services, which is initiated and/or completed by using mobile access to computer-mediated networks with the help of an electronic device." -wikipedia
For several months we have been working with New York-based mobile technology company SUBPORTS to create a site featuring classic Alter items available in a text to buy format, giving birth to a new era of imaginative, safe and sustainable commerce.

It's Easy! Visit the official Subports website to register and create an account. Enter your mobile phone number and credit card information and You're done! All transactions and account information are completely secure.
After signing up, You will be able to purchase items from Alter (as well as a growing list of other independent retailers) by simply sending a text message with the specific product description to PORTAL (767825).

You will then receive a text message asking to confirm the order. Reply YES and the transaction will be processed automatically. Have it shipped to your door (shipping cost apply) or request to pick it up at Alter.

"Information spreads quicker by the day, and through diverse channels: word-of-mouth, blogs, social networking sites, advertising, print and other traditional media. Through Subports, any of these can be utilized as a point of sale."- Subports
