Fraisr shuts down

Being found in 2012 by Oskar Volkland, Lukas-Christian Fischer and Alex Schwaderer, Fraisr wanted to become a “marketplace for good causes”. The idea was to sell items and let sellers donate part of their sell price. However, the startup later decided to build a plugin for shop software so that other e-commerce platform could use it. At some point, the marketplace was shut down and the team focussed on the SaaS business. Unfortunately, the pivot didn’t turn out as successful as hoped: Fraisr now went out of business.
