With the arrival of the 31st Olympiad, Snow Commerce is proud to announce our partnership with Pursuit3 and Commerce Dynamics to create the Rio 2016 Official Auction site! The Games draw millions of people to watch elite athletes perform, producing thousands of unique collectable items in the process.
The site brings olympic collectables right to the homes of sports fans around the world. The biggest ticket items are the Olympic Torches. Each individual torchbearer has the option to purchase their individual torch from the IOC, but if they choose not to, the torch goes up for auction, benefitting the Olympic Committee. At the last Olympics, London 2012, a single torch could go for as much as $20,000 USD. Other collectables include signed sports equipment and parade flags.
Pursuit3, of Vancouver, is the official licensee of the memorabilia from the Games. Snow provides an industry leading store platform customized for Brazilian commerce and seamlessly integrated into the auction platform developed by Commerce Dynamics, in Toronto.
