Jingle, a startup from Vienna, wants to be a local alternative to major online retailers. With its marketplace app, consumers can easily browse and find products from local retailers. According to Ecommerce News, this month Jingle has received a six-digit investment from Umdasch, an Austrian company that realizes stores for retail companies.

Last Monday, Jingle has launched a beta version of its app, which retailers can test. For the next year, plans are to create a marketplace and to complete the platform for dealers. For now, the focus is on the Viennese market, but it should be rolled out to other cities across Austria and even Europe in the future.


Jingle is a startup that wants to display all retailer products in one simple app. By using artificial intelligence, users can easily communicate with the app and search for suitable dealers who have stored certain products. The app also offers the opportunity to browse special offers. Through direct route guidance, these products can then be picked up at the store. In the near future, it should also be possible to get these products delivered.
