New iPhone App Pays Users While They Shop(March 02, 2011)
Bentonville, Ark. (PRWEB) March 2, 2011
Zapiddy, newly launched on Apple's App Store, helps people make money while they shop.
Retailers, consumer goods marketers, and many other far-reaching companies have questions with answers based primarily on local information. These questions range from how customers feel about a shopping experience to how they interact with products and services.
Traditionally, this type of insight has been provided by companies with a large staff of agents who must be deployed to specific locations. By paying coupon moms, college students or anyone else who is already at the store, Zapiddy delivers real-time, location-verified intelligence for a fraction of the time and money required by traditional such service providers.
In addition to paying its members in real money for each completed job, Zapiddy will make a donation to the members local Children's Miracle Network Hospital. Childrens Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds for 170 childrens hospitals across North America. Learn more at http://www.cmnhospitals.org.
We love the idea that you can make money while you shop and also help a great cause, said Jeff Clapper, CEO of Zapiddy. Plus, retail and CPG insights are faster and more affordable than ever before.
Most jobs can be completed from everyday locations where consumers are already spending their time. Jobs vary, and include requests for gathering information and providing opinions. One job might include a request from a retailer to rate the service received at the checkout. Another might ask for verification that a demo has taken place during a specific period of time. Others still might ask consumers to view two different television commercials and rate their favorite.
"We're coming up with new ways to leverage this technology every day, and are excited to see how Zapiddy evolves," said Clapper. "The beauty is that consumers don't have to change their habits one bit in order to participate. Wherever they go, we hope to have jobs waiting for them."
Using Zapiddy to make money shopping is simple enough. First, users go to the iTunes app store to download the free app. Second, they sign-up for a free account through the app on their phone. Third, they find and complete jobs in their area by going about their normal shopping and answering simple questions for companies through the app. Finally, they get paid for their help within 24 hours via PayPal.
Zapiddy will be posting additional paying jobs on an ongoing basis as it grows its base of users.
Zapiddy was founded in 2009 in Bentonville, Arkansas. Members can visit Apple's App Store to download the free Zapiddy App. Customers and members can visit http://www.zapiddy.com for more details on how to create and deliver jobs.
