Perk hat eine neue Web-Desktop App rausgebracht. Ich find die Idee gut, sodass die Leute auch am PC die Funktionen nutzen können. Außerdem wird die digitale Werbung gestärkt und die Bekanntheit in der Goolge Suche usw...
Letzter Abschnitt kopiert und übersetzt:
Perk hat mittlerweile über 90 Händler und fast 4.000 Produkte auf seinem Marktplatz gelistet. Zu den jüngsten Neuzugängen im wachsenden Angebot an digitalen Geschenkkarten gehören Walmart, Wayfair und The Keg.
Es tut sich was! Wenn man jetzt sogar den Fortschritt in den ersten Zahlen sieht, dann kann es richtig losgehen! Im Yahoo Forum liest man generell stets postive Meldung, auch über die Entwicklung der App im US Land.
Und finde es auch weiter spannend. Wahrscheinlich kommen die Zahlen Ende des Monats. Solange müssen wir uns noch gedulden aber ich denke auch, dass man bis dahin jede Bewegung hier sehr aufmerksam verfolgen sollte.
: Perk Labs to Launch Digital Gift Cards in the US
Vancouver, Canada / March 18, 2021 / Perk Labs Inc. (CSE: PERK / OTCQB: PKLBF / FKT: PKLB) (?Perk? or the ?Company?), the parent company of Perk Hero, the mobile commerce platform with exclusive perks on curated lifestyle products and digital gift cards, is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with InComm Payments, a leading payments technology company, to distribute digital gift cards in the United States.
Gift card categories that will initially be available through the Perk Hero app in the US include online shopping, streaming services, gaming, home improvement and major restaurant chains. Perk has developed an innovative platform for the sale of eGift Cards, allowing users to buy for themselves, send to friends as gifts, save the eGift card in the Perk digital wallet as stored value, earn cash back rewards on the purchase of gift cards, and earn rewards for referring digital gift cards to friends and family.
?We?ve already witnessed a significant demand for our digital gift card offering in the Canadian market,? says Perk Labs? CEO Jonathan Hoyles. ?We believe that the way we offer and sell digital gift cards through our mobile digital wallet is innovative and unique in the marketplace, and there is a huge opportunity to become one of the leading mobile-first distributors of digital gift cards in the United States.?
?Our partnership with Perk Labs has been quite the success; so much so that we?re now expanding our distribution in the U.S. market,? said Dave Etling, Senior Vice President of InComm Payments. ?Together, we are well positioned to answer the accelerated demand for digital gifts cards as people continue to remain physically apart from their friends and family.?
According to the report published by Allied Market Research, the global gift cards market generated $619.25 billion in 2019, and is estimated to reach $1,922.87 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 15.4% from 2020 to 2027.
Vancouver, Canada / May 17, 2021 / Perk Labs Inc. (CSE: PERK / OTCQB: PKLBF / FKT: PKLB) (?Perk? or the ?Company?), the parent company of Perk Hero, the mobile commerce platform with perks on curated lifestyle products and digital gift cards, today announced a comprehensive technology upgrade, which includes a new merchant payout system, universal shopping cart and single sign-on.
All of the architectural changes will support the scalability and fast, frictionless experience that Perk Hero merchants and customers require and expect.
?This has been a significant investment on our part and is fundamental to our strategy moving forward,? said Jonathan Hoyles, CEO, Perk Labs. ?We are committed to pioneering the next generation of mobile commerce and digital loyalty rewards through rapid product innovation.?
The new merchant payout system is a new and unique method for merchants to connect their bank accounts to Perk?s platform when they sign up to Perk Hero and to receive payment for products sold through Perk Hero. Previously, Perk Hero relied on Stripe?s platform to connect with and payout to bank accounts and did not have the desired controls, insights and reporting functionality with respect to merchant payouts. The new Perk payout system allows Perk Coin product development to be more loosely coupled, which will allow for faster innovation, testing and scalability, and is a required step towards Perk Coin becoming a blockchain-based rewards platform.
The new universal shopping cart feature makes it easy to shop simultaneously from a variety of brands and retailers on Perk Hero. Previously, while the checkout process was easy, customers were limited to checking out at only one merchant at a time. Now, with universal shopping cart, customers will be able to add multiple items from various retailers to their cart and checkout all together on Perk.
?We believe that the easier we make it for our customers to shop on our site, the longer they will stay there and browse through the catalogue; and the quicker we can lead someone to a checkout, the more likely it is that they will actually go through with a purchase,? explained Jonathan Hoyles, Perk Labs CEO.
Development of the universal shopping cart and the new payout system is complete and Perk plans to complete the migration of all merchant customers from Stripe payouts to the new payout system and deploy universal shopping cart by the end of the month.
Perk?s new single sign-on feature streamlines the login experience for new and existing customers across multiple platforms. Customers and merchants can now sign up or sign in to both Perk Hero?s mobile app or website using their Google or Apple account, in addition to their phone number. By making the sign-up process simpler and more seamless, Perk believes that it will increase its conversion rate for customers that visit its app or website and then sign up as registered users.
Perk also announced that Michelle Berg has joined the Company as its new Director of Marketing and will oversee the Company?s new marketing campaign that will begin rolling out over the next two weeks and fully ramp up in the next quarter. Michelle was previously the Group Lead at Major Tom, an industry-leading marketing agency.
Michelle is a full-stack marketing professional with expertise in the area of digital marketing, including Google ads, paid social ads, analytics, landing page optimization, and SEO. Perk also announced today that Daniel Zou has transitioned from the role of COO to an advisor to the Company and will continue to advise the Company on mobile business growth, strategic partnerships, and enterprise merchant expansion strategies.

Perk Hero offers a unique community-driven franchise business at an attractive start-up price. Through Perk Hero, franchisees can offer restaurants, retail, and any small business with a bricks-and-mortar location, a solution that provides the convenience of mobile payment combined with a powerful digital loyalty program that empowers them to create, market, and measure real-time mobile offers and rewards to loyal customers. Each local business pays a modest monthly fee for access to tools such as order by QR, QR code payment, multiple payment methods including Alipay and BitPay, push notifications, digital loyalty, and the ability to reach new customers through the Perk Hero App and online marketplace.
Unlike brick & mortar franchises, as a Perk Hero digital franchise, owners do not have to take on significant overhead and can build a growing recurring software-as-a-service (SAAS) revenue stream in their local marketplace.
