WASHINGTON, DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 19, 2016) - Snipp Interactive Inc. ("Snipp" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SPN)(OTCQX:SNIPF), a global provider of digital marketing promotions, rebates and loyalty solutions, announced today that it has signed a loyalty program agreement with Giverang, a new cause-based online marketplace that helps families stretch their spending power and give to charity at the same time. For each dollar that customers spend with Giverang, they get $2 in Change™ to spend with their favorite retailers, restaurants and websites. Plus, 50% of every dollar customers spend with Giverang is donated to a cause of their choice, allowing great flexibility in the causes parents support. Participating B2C businesses also benefit by acquiring more customers at or below their target acquisition cost.
Giverang will be using Snipp's proprietary SnippCheck receipt processing solution and API integration for receipt validation purposes. Consumers will be able to submit their receipts via upload using an API integration into Giverang's platform. SnippCheck will validate specific dollar amounts spent across multiple participating retailers in a single transaction and submit the data back to Giverang, also via Snipp's API integration.
