Fruper.com – A Super One Day Deal Site
The website name of Fruper.com does originate from the word, "super" according to its founder David Orr. He was a high school freshman when the site was launched in 2006 and is now a University student. The site was first launched and operated at the basement of his family’s house and now grew into a worldwide operating computer and electronics site.

It’s perfect for small scale businesses in need of retail products purchased at wholesale prices. Fruper.com can in fact sell more than 500,000 pieces per year. Its stock of products is stored at Total Quality Warehouse in Effingham, Illinois and operates globally through another inventory center in Hong Kong, China.
