iPhone App Pays Users to Shop

Posted by at 4:51 pm on March 7, 2011

Zapiddy 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 aims to deliver real-time, location-verified intelligence for a fraction of the time and money required by traditional such service providers.

Using Zapiddy to make money shopping is designed to be simple. 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.

“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.”

Variety of Tasks for Users

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.

In addition to paying its members in real money for each completed job, Zapiddy will make a donation to the member’s local Children’s Miracle Network Hospital. Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across North America. Zapiddy will be posting additional paying jobs on an ongoing basis as it grows its base of users.
