Love a business? Refer a friend! 👯

We just can't stop building awesome new features right now! 😉

Alongside the release of our cashback trials (we hope you're loving that feature too), we're now introducing referrals! You'll now be able to refer a friend to your favourite business (if they're participating), when you've updated to the latest version of the Swipii app (v2.4.1 on iOS and v2.3.1 on Android).

How it works

Referrer 👩‍💼☕️📲⭐️

The first time an app user gives a rating of 4 stars or more at a participating Swipii business, they'll be asked if they’d like to share this business with a friend, in exchange for them both receiving bonus points or a free reward! 🎉

If they choose to share, they are given a referral link unique to them for that business, which they are free to share in any way (e.g. messaging app, social media). They'll get their bonus points or freebie once their friend has clicked the link and made a purchase in the business!

Referree 🙍‍♂️📲☕️👍

If someone chooses to click the link their friend has sent them (we call them referrees), and they’ve never bought anything at that business, then that person receives a pending referral for the bonus points or freebie.

Once they’ve made their first verified transaction with a linked card at the referred business, they’ll get their bonus points along with the points they earned with that transaction. Win-win! 🥳

For now, the businesses participating in the cashback trials and the businesses participating in the referral trials will be kept separate to save our developers' sanity... But soon, we'll be looking at integrating it all (on the basis that app users love both features)!

We're trialling cashback! 💸

We’re in the middle of some exciting times here at Swipii!

The team are super buzzing to let you know that we are beginning trialling cashback on the Swipii app! 💸🎉

Some of our awesome local businesses are now giving you the option to choose between cashback or a reward.

We’ve done some homework and we think this could be a huge help for the local businesses we want to support, as well as giving our app users some incredible deals!

Currently, this trial is only running on iOS to allow us to test the feature before we build the Android version also. To view the businesses currently running cashback offers, users will need to be on the latest version of the app.

Here’s how it’s going to look in the app for participating businesses:

Cashback will be kept safe in the Wallet within the app until users pass the minimum withdrawal threshold (which as of today is £5 but this is subject to change)!

We got big news… The Swipii App has had a refresh! 🥳

We are SO excited to finally be able to tell you! We have been hard at work building a new native version of the app which will allow us to make some awesome changes and keep on improving your experience with Swipii.

You no longer need to link your card to see the businesses

A major change to the Swipii app makeover is that you will no longer need to link a card in order to see the Swipii participating businesses. You will need to link up to collect points and rewards though! This means, though, that you can have a look and see which businesses are near you, have a read through our Security and Card Linking FAQs all before linking your card up!

Awesome new explore feature with a map

We’ve made it even easier for you to find new businesses on the Swipii app by introducing an awesome new map feature, which you’ll be able to find on the Nearby tab. The map will centre to your location (if you’re cool with that) and let you know the places in your vicinity who are offering points and rewards. Awesome!

Download the app and have a look around!

The Swipii app is having a constant open house and you are invited. Download the app now to check out all of the cool features and see which businesses are offering free rewards in your area!

Big update to our Merchant Dashboard for all Swipii businesses! 💥

For businesses using Swipii, the data in your Merchant Dashboard just got a whole lot richer 💪

From today, businesses with a Grow or Premium package will be able to see the data for each individual customer on their Customers page, including how much they have spent in a time period, the average amount they have spent with each visit, the average rating score and their number of visits. This will give you way more insight into whether you’re getting your best ratings from your most regular customers and whether there’s a link between your customers’ frequency and average spend. Exciting! 🤯

Freemium business? Never fear, as you’ll also be able to see the breakdown of customers and their spending trends. The only thing that will be different is the ratings will not be shown in your dashboard.

Swipii goes freemium! 🚀

Are you a “try-before-you-buy” kind of person? Then boy, do I have news for you.

Swipii is now free for local businesses up and down the country to get involved in. We’ve completely changed our pricing structure, so you can try out a 1-reward loyalty program to see the awesome value of our app. It’s free forever, with no contract or payment details required to sign up 🥳

You now have three options if you want to sign up:

  1. FREE 🎉 You can get listed on the app and set up a 1-reward loyalty program.
  2. £28! 😄 With this one, you've still got your 1 reward but this time you supercharge your Swipii membership with access to our ratings and feedback feature.
  3. £38 🙌 A whole 3 rewards and all of the ratings and feedback data from your loyal customers!

If you want to upgrade in the future, that’s cool too! Then you’ll be able to take advantage of our ratings and feedback features, with more cool additional features in the pipeline as well.

Customer ratings and feedback in Swipii For Business

A few weeks ago we launched a new feature which allowed Swipii users to rate businesses after each visit and then feed back why such rating was given. This was hugely successful with a high volume of ratings and feedback submitted in a couple of weeks! 🎉

We are now making this information visible to our business. This allows for two things:

  1. Know if you are doing well as business or not.
  2. Know what to continue to do well specifically or fix if need be.

Importantly, remember that these ratings and feedback are 100% genuine given they are only triggered by someone making a purchase in a Swipii participating business via their linked card. 💳👌🏼

This information is, for the time being, made private and only visible to business owners in their dashboard.

We're so excited about this feature, let us know what you think! 👋

A Sign Up flow just for our v1 customers ❤️

Swipii users from our v1 tablet-based product who own a key fob with a QR code now have a tailor made sign up flow to join our new card-linking app! 👌🏼

We realised it wasn't easy for our long loyal key fob customers to join the new app as you never had to set a password. This meant that the system would recognise you as an existing user but without a password to login. Not great!

Now, simply click "I have a Swipii card" and enjoy a smooth and slick journey just for you ❤️

Merchant web v2.0

We launched our new website at the end of last year. Since its introduction, we have been busy adding content and collecting feedback. Now we hope that you can find answers to pretty much any question you may have on our card linking product.

We have also been busy refining the sign up flow for our business users and are very proud to announce that now, for the first time, business users will be able to create an account with just their name and email. From there, they can dive in to explore exactly what is required to get them into our app with no need for purchase. We hope that by opening up the whole process to curious businesses we can show rather than tell them why they should choose Swipii.

Customisable homepage

As we grow we want our users to be able to customise the app according to their history and preferences. We are doing that in two ways, the first of which is the replacement of My Available Rewards with Visited & Nearby Places. Now you will find those places that you visit on the app's landing page, giving you a true reflection of how you are using Swipii.

Swipii Changelog Graphics.png

Also changing is how users can contact us in the app. In the interest of establishing closer links with our lovely Swipii loyalty customers, we have added our phone number ☎️ and email address 📧. We've done this so that you'll find it quick and easy to get hold of us to give us your thoughts and feedback. This is so valuable to us because it is the best way that we can take your tips on board to improve our product in ways that you, our userbase, most want 👐.!

Search for businesses near you

Our first new app feature for a while is a brand new text-based search feature 🔤. Up until now you've had to be up close and personal to find Swipii businesses, and while we were only in Glasgow that was fine... Now we are rolling out around the country so we have introduced a search function so you can find Swipii businesses, wherever they may be! Search by name, address or by the content in the description. This is the first step to creating an interactive Explore experience that will allow you to find and grow your relationship with Swipii businesses.
