Mobile payments startup Gust Pay launched a new version of their Gust Finder app for iOS today.
The app rewards you with a Free Coffee when visiting participating Gust Coffee Club merchants.
Choose any coffee from the menu when you are within 100 meters of a partner location by showing your Gust Finder deal confirmation screen to the merchant. The app has a map, list and Augmented Reality view to help you discover new coffee shops and restaurants. Shake your device and you’ll get suggestions for nearby places to visit.
The Gust Coffee Club has about 60 active merchants at the moment, mostly around Cape Town and Stellenbosch. Merchants get new customers to visit their shops and experience their service while growing their social media awareness with Facebook Check-Ins.
“The future of commerce is completely mobile and connects the merchant and customer in new ways,” says Joe Botha, one of the founders of Gust Pay.
“Gust Finder helps customers discover deals and navigate to a shop, Gust Pay offers a quick and easy payment experience and gives the customer access to free in-shop WiFi, while our Gust PayPoint app processes the payment on the merchant side. Our strategy is to integrate retail payments, music event payments, in-shop WiFi, location services, loyalty and social media,” says Botha.
Gust Finder version 1.2 is free and available for iOS devices. An Android update will follow soon.
