Pants Store crossed $5M+ in lifetime live selling GMV, a compelling example of how small businesses are gaining significant benefits from video commerce.

“Pants Store started our CommentSold journey in 2018, wanting to get into the online retail space. Over time we gained a large following, which allowed us to grow our inventory and our team into what it is today.

We are excited to keep growing with CommentSold and see what the future holds,” said Maggie Carter, E-Commerce Specialist of Pants Store.
“We’re thrilled to see shops like Pants Store reach a significant milestone like this.
