In this day and age, where consumers are more often than not conscious about the pricing of the products they purchase online, digital coupons come-in as a major boon for both the shoppers and the retailers. It is said that on average a consumer spends around two hours every single week to find and identify the best shopping deals and discounts to save money on shopping. Aside from the price factor, digital coupons help gain or attract the customer’s attention.
The concept of coupons dates back to 1887, when Coca Cola had decided to offer different coupons for a free glass of coke. Years later, it still holds its marketing potential. However, today, the demand for digital-based coupons have surged ahead of print-based coupons, and it is slated to continue its rise in the near future as well.
One organization that is riding on to this success and further helping expand the industry is Mezzofy. This digital coupon platform is one of the most popular amongst merchants, developers, and marketers owing to the suite of benefits it provides that too at a cheap and effective cost.
Create, Distribute, and Redeem
The term Mezzofy in the Italian language means connection. The company believes its digital coupon platform boasts the ability to connect the merchants with their customers. Mezzofy wishes to provide a comprehensive digital coupon platform for merchants to create, to distribute, and to redeem coupons.
However, at the moment, the biggest challenge according to the company is allowing more people to join them. Dicky Ying, the Co-founder & CEO of the company, mentions the company plans to overcome this challenge, “We are providing a comprehensive Digital Coupon platform for merchants to create, to distribute, to redeem coupons without technical or financial barriers. That means no technical help or upfront cost is required for the merchants. And for the customers, they may even receive and use the coupons without downloading any apps.” Truly a platform that is hard to find anywhere else.
Standing Apart in the Industry
Over the course of the last 4 years, Mezzofy has taken a proactive role in the transformation of the coupon industry. From being a totally paper-based market, it has now almost completely become a digital market.
Mezzofy has become one of the market leaders in Hong Kong and Asia and now wishes to take a leadership role in delivering the eﬃciencies that blockchain unlocks, combining innovation in point of sale technology, coupon authentication techniques, the near-ubiquitous use of social media and, last but not the least, a considerably more ﬂuid payments and settlements system.
Following are some of the benefits Mezzofy offers:
