Vancouver, Canada / March 18, 2021 / 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 perks on curated lifestyle products and digital gift cards, is pleased to announce that it has signed an agreement with InComm Payments, a leading payments technology company, to distribute digital gift cards in the United States.
Gift card categories that will initially be available through the Perk Hero app in the US include online shopping, streaming services, gaming, home improvement and major restaurant chains. Perk has developed an innovative platform for the sale of eGift Cards, allowing users to buy for themselves, send to friends as gifts, save the eGift card in the Perk digital wallet as stored value, earn cash back rewards on the purchase of gift cards, and earn rewards for referring digital gift cards to friends and family.
“We’ve already witnessed a significant demand for our digital gift card offering in the Canadian market,” says Perk Labs’ CEO Jonathan Hoyles. “We believe that the way we offer and sell digital gift cards through our mobile digital wallet is innovative and unique in the marketplace, and there is a huge opportunity to become one of the leading mobile-first distributors of digital gift cards in the United States.”
“Our partnership with Perk Labs has been quite the success; so much so that we’re now expanding our distribution in the U.S. market,” said Dave Etling, Senior Vice President of InComm Payments. “Together, we are well positioned to answer the accelerated demand for digital gifts cards as people continue to remain physically apart from their friends and family.”
According to the report published by Allied Market Research, the global gift cards market generated $619.25 billion in 2019, and is estimated to reach $1,922.87 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 15.4% from 2020 to 2027.
