Tuesday, August 20th, 2019


2:00 PM Supercharging Marketplace Merchandising With Machine Learning

Managing the merchandising decisions across a 2 million (growing to 4 million) SKU two-sided marketplace would be unwieldy…except thredUP  can handle it with the tools and systems thredUP it built. Throughout this session, learn the different approaches thredUP is taking, as well as the experiments and the learnings from scaling the marketplace to handle millions of items inbound and out every month. Chris shares how thredUP is leveraging their vast Data Lake, Spark and Machine Learning to:
• Attract amazing inventory from suppliers
• Price & clear items effectively to delight customers & maximize turns
• Promote and surface the right inventory to the right customer at the right time
