Fanplayr Closes $2M Funding

Fanplayr, Inc., a Palo Alto, Calif.-based start-up focused on data-driven conversion solutions for e-commerce, closed a $2m funding.

The round was led by Denali Venture Partners.

Led by Simon Yencken, CEO, Fanplayr has developed a platform for e-commerce merchants that analyzes site and visitor traffic to determine the optimal value and timing of purchase incentives. The company’s two proprietary products, “Smart & Targeted Offers” and “Gamified Coupons & Offers” help marketers identify, profile and target visitors with customized offers and employ basic game mechanics to distribute incentives. The platform integrates with e-commerce carts including Magento, Shopify, ZenCart, Presta Shop, Lemonstand and WordPress.

In conjunction with the funding, Denali’s chairman, Richard Cawsey, will join the company’s board.
