ADDISON, Texas -- Koupon Media and ZipLine have partnered to bring a combined rewards and payment solution to convenience-store retailers. The partnership creates a mobile loyalty experience with consumer packaged goods (CPG)-funded offers, rewards and payment in one app.
ZipLine’s mobile platform is integrated with point-of-sale (POS) providers, including Skip Checkout for frictionless checkout, and with rewards that target specific consumer preferences. “Providing convenience retailers with easy access to high-value offers from consumers’ favorite national brands is very powerful. Our partnership creates a very advanced, yet simple solution to drive consumer loyalty,” said Kristen Bailey, chief marketing officer of ZipLine.
Through a direct integration with Koupon Media, fully-funded CPG offers from top national and regional brands will be available to consumers. Offers will be distributed directly to consumers through retailers’ own mobile apps.
“ZipLine’s expertise and success in private-label payment programs, paired with Koupon-sourced and personalized mobile offers, will create compelling consumer loyalty,” said Brad VanOtterloo, president of Koupon. “The retail industry is highly competitive, and both ZipLine and Koupon Media are on a mission to help c-store marketers drive increased sales and loyalty through innovative technology.”
Koupon Media, based in Addison, Texas, is a digital promotion network that works with more than 40,000 c-store retailers and CPG brands to launch mobile offer campaigns. Since its founding, Koupon has delivered more than 3 billion offers, leading to more than 300 million store trips across its network, it said.
