SnapnSave, a free web and mobile shopping app developed in Cape Town, has been launched in South Africa. According to the development company, the app allows South African shoppers to get cash back, on everyday grocery items, wherever they shop in-store simply by snapping their till slip.
SnapnSave has been developed with the support of TAT Ventures, an overseas-based investment house that backs start-up tech ideas that provide African solutions to African problems.
“Globally, we are seeing more and more mobile technology being developed and used to enable consumers to make smarter purchase decisions,” said SnapnSave CEO Mark Bradshaw.
According to Bradshaw: “Shoppers don’t need to worry about crumpled paper coupons, plastic cards, expiry dates nor confusion or embarrassment at the teller. As a SnapnSave user, you select the offers you want, buy them in-store and, using your mobile device’s camera, send a snap of your till slip to verify the purchase.”
Bradshaw revealed that the till slips are verified using photo recognition technology, and the money is then credited into your SnapnSave e-wallet – which gives the user back real cash to spend.
“We’ve developed the platform specifically for the South African market and have made getting cash back for shopping easier, discrete and more convenient than ever before,” Bradshaw concluded.
SnapnSave is available from www.snapnsave.co.za for Android and Apple devices.
