Stoycard

Stocard


With its app, users can digitize their loyalty cards, making their wallet easier. At the checkout they scan a code on their smartphone instead of the card. In addition, they can view their scores and transaction histories and receive current offers. "In more than 15 countries, we are already among the top 10 shopping apps, in addition to apps from Amazon and Ebay," says Bjoern Goß. The smartphone app Stocard already counts more than 50 million users. But hardly more than ten percent of these originate from the German-speaking world. The majority is distributed to Italy, Australia, France and the Benelux countries. Stocard is also active in the UK and Canada.
