Seek is proud to announce a landmark partnership with Overstock.com that expands their augmented reality reach to 100% of mobile users. Since 2017, Overstock has offered augmented reality in their apps and they have seen tremendous lift in sales conversion and a reduction in product returns. Having proven the positive impact of AR technology within the app, when Seek showed up talking about being able to bring the same benefits to the mobile web, Overstock jumped at the opportunity.

Overstock's launch of web-based AR through Seek represents the world's largest rollout of AR anywhere. Many retailers have experimented with AR in their apps, but only to a limited scale. Overstock is now the largest retailer in the world with app-less AR at work for their customers.
