What is Threep? Threep is a mobile application that rewards users for having shared experiences in real life. Promotions are based on 3 or more people demonstrating they are together at the same place and/or time (known as Threeping). The reward can be any digital content (coupon, mp3, video, etc.) but is often a retail discount. A tiered rewards program allows users to unlock better rewards and discounts the more they Threep. 5. Threep Process Users Threep a promotion by patronizing a participating retailer in a group of 3 or more and hitting the Threep button on their mobile devices at the same time. A snapshot is taken of the users time, location, and selected promotion, which is compared to the Threeps of others on the users Threep contact list to look for two or more matches. If the matches are found, a success message is sent to the users mobile. A QR code (or link to online content) is simultaneously generated and delivered to the user which is used to collect on the promotion. Promotional codes are verified by each retailer using a specialized Retailer App installed on each retailers mobile device (smartphone or iPad). 6. Retailer App The Retailer App verifies the QR codes that users present to redeem a Threep promotion. It runs on any smart device (iOS or Android) and is utilized at the POS terminal. The employee scans the users QR code using the camera on the smart device. The QR code is then displayed as verified (or rejected if no longer valid). Once a QR code is verified, it is marked as such in our database and cannot be redeemed again. Retailer is billed by Threep for number of redeemed (verified) QR codes. For Mass Threeps where QR codes are not utilized, Retailers are billed by number of users who Threep within the prescribed time window. 7. Threep Fee Structure Retail Threep fee $0.15 per redeemed Threep.
