Coral Gables, FL (PRWEB) September 14, 2010
Shooger, a mobile coupon platform offering money-saving deals on everyday products and services, today announced a new version of its iPhone app supporting standard barcodes and QR codes. Business owners can now add barcodes to offers and scan them at the point of sale for real-time tracking and reporting and quick consumer redemption.
In addition to barcodes, the updated Shooger iPhone app (and coming soon to the Android app) includes for the first time:
- Limited redemption offers: Merchants now have the ability to designate the number of redemptions per person and in aggregate.
- Share-to-social feature: Consumers can now share deals on Facebook and Twitter.
- Account linking: Consumers can sync their Shooger.com and app accounts, allowing users to “clip and follow” online and have immediate access to the results of those actions in the app.
