Vancouver, Canada / November 24, 2020 / Perk Labs Inc. (CSE:PERK / OTCQB:PKLBF / FKT:PKLB) (“Perk” or the “Company”), the parent company of Perk Hero, the mobile commerce platform with exclusive rewards on e-gift cards and curated goods, is pleased to report an increase in the dollar volume of purchases transacted through its app in the month of November, highlighted by a notable spike in the number of gift card purchases from customers in multiple locations across Canada, as well as a surge in signing up new eCommerce merchants to its app.
“We are happy to see a recent spike both in the number of transactions and merchants signed up on our app. This indicates that Perk is on the right track and we want to keep the ball rolling. As consumers move to online shopping amid the pandemic restrictions, gift cards are proving to be a preferred touchless way to spread some much-needed holiday cheer. We are pleased to provide our customers with exclusive offers on high-quality goods and digital gift cards as well as an opportunity to earn rewards by referring Perk to their friends,” says Perk Labs CEO Jonathan Hoyles.
Unlike any other year, this holiday season will see a huge shift towards online shopping due to COVID-19 limitations. Consumers have adjusted their shopping behaviours, and Perk intends to make use of this shift.
To continue on the recent growth trend, Perk will be running a series of exclusive sales and special bonus cash back reward promotions on high-quality products and digital gift cards leading up to Black Friday and Cyber Monday. The Company is currently offering special bonus cash back rewards on digital gift cards for PlayStation, Nintendo, Xbox and Indigo. These promotions are timely as PlayStation and Xbox recently released their next generation of gaming consoles.
Perk would also like to provide an update on its At-The-Market Program. Since commencing the program, the Company has raised $333,000, of which $170,675 has been raised in the month of November. The financing proceeds strengthen the Company’s balance sheet and will allow Perk to expand its sales and marketing efforts.
Looking forward into the new year, the Company has plans to execute on the following:
- Q1 2021 will be focused on the US expansion, offering US digital gift cards, and enhanced merchant tools.
- Q2 2021 will continue to focus on the US expansion, as well as launching a virtual shopping assistant and group buying.
- Q3 2021 will focus on an AI recommendation engine and API integrations.
For the remainder of 2020, Perk will continue to focus on growing its supply of merchants, new customer acquisition, and promoting its products throughout the holiday shopping season.
