It is backed by Facebook co-founder, Eduardo Saverin, and former CEO of Saks, Brad Martin, among others.

The transaction, Purch’s fourth acquisition in 12 months as it continues to leverage its $135m Series C funding round, is intended to enhance its mobile strategy and extend its mission of enabling buying decisions for the “small screen” and bridge the online and offline retail.
