We make it easy for every retailer to meet their objectives

Showcase multiple products at once

Refresh inventory and pricing 


Integrate your eCommerce API into our platform for real-time insight into product inventory to continually update creative with new offers based on business objectives and user preferences.

Drive online conversions


Remove friction from the buying process with an “add-to-cart” functionality that gives users the chance to add items to their online shopping cart directly from your ad.

Get more people shopping in stores


Store locators, downloadable coupons, and special offers that can be saved directly to users’ mobile wallets help increase purchase intent and drive more foot-traffic in stores.

Some of our most popular features were built with retailers in mind


We build hundreds of retail campaigns each year, and help brands collect data on each one, so we know what it takes for retailers to achieve record-breaking ROAS.

Sport Chek used a chatbot to guide users in the right direction


Back-to-school shopping is a key time for fashion retailers, so Sport Chek decided to engage shoppers with a friendly and informative shopping assistant that would make it easier to explore fall trends. They used the Contobox platform to build a chatbot into expandable digital display and outstream video, then targeted parents and Gen Z students across the open web. 

Once users engaged, the chatbot inquired in an unobtrusive way whether they were interested in male or female clothes, further breaking down items by category. The ads were also outfitted with a lookbook and dynamic store locator to increase purchase intent.

Ernest put their boutique shopping experience in a display ad

Ernest has been helping men look their best for over 60 years. To engage dapper men, ages 35 to 55, they created an immersive shopping experience directly in display ads, which they ran programmatically across business, finance, men’s lifestyle, sports and technology verticals. 

The expandable display opened on a video outfitted with hotspots, which allowed users to explore specific items and their prices. They could then go directly to the item’s purchase page or continue the video—each user controlled their experience. The unit also featured a gallery with informational hotspots, a lookbook, and a store locator for users interested in buying in stores. The cost-per-engagement pricing model ensured Ernest only paid for 100% viewable engagements, which helped them exceed industry standard and previous campaigns by a long shot.


Higher engagement rate than rich media standard.


Higher CTR over standard display benchmarks.


More website traffic than previous campaigns.

A large retailer took more control of their campaigns 


A large retailer had little control over their digital campaigns, and their complex tech stack made it costly and time-consuming to produce static display that wasn’t generating results. They integrated Contobox into their tech stack and empowered their in-house team to traffic their own creative, so they could bring their programmatic ad-buying in house. 

They integrated their eCommerce API into Contobox’s platform for real-time access to product inventory and pricing, which enabled them to dynamically serve creative variations based on a user’s location and interests, so they could collect first-party engagement data for more precise retargeting and lookalike audiences. The platform also allowed them to work from established templates, so they could execute campaigns end-to-end in less than a week.

Campaigns launched in a single season.
