Today, Flux has announced five significant new partnerships which will see its digital receipts and rewards technology available to multiple new high street brands.
The digital receipts and rewards platform has now delivered more than one million receipts to customers across the UK, having started the year with fewer than 30,000 - an increase of more than 3,000% in one year.
The shift towards paperless receipts indicates part of a wider environmental consciousness from the British shopper. Research that suggests as many as 200,000 trees are felled every year to print paper receipts in the UK, and as consumers become more aware of their own impact, national retailers are understandably looking to offer their customers greener options.
Flux is currently enjoying increased nationwide usage and demonstrating a clear opportunity for increased growth as it adds these new partnerships. Huge retailers like KFC and Just Eat have already helped the brand achieve greater coverage across the whole country, as well as offering customers increased opportunities to use the platform.
Each of Flux’s new partnerships means that customers of participating stores will be able to receive itemised digital receipts directly in their banking app, immediately after making a payment. This means a faster, more convenient experience for customers, as well as providing a digital alternative to paper receipts.
Flux’s digital receipts feature is currently available for Monzo and Starling Bank users, and for Barclays customers via the Launchpad mobile app.
Nick Smith, Commercial Director at Boparan Restaurant Group (owners of Giraffe, Ed’s Easy Diner and Slim Chickens), said:
“Our partnership with Flux means we’ll be able to deliver a smoother, sleeker experience for customers at our restaurants across the UK. It’s great to be able to help our customers keep track of their spending - as well as helping the environment - and we’re looking forward to rolling out digital receipts to all of our brands in the future.”
Jun Kaneko, Head of Technology and E-Commerce at Japan Centre Group, said:
“We’re always on the look-out for innovative solutions to help us deliver an outstanding shopping experience. We’re thrilled to be able to offer our customers digital receipts with Flux and we’re proud to be the first boutique supermarket and food hall in the UK to bring on Flux’s technology.”
Matty Cusden-Ross, CEO and founder of Flux, said:
“We’re thrilled to finish off 2019 by introducing Flux to a whole host of new brands up and down the country. This is an exciting opportunity to demonstrate the way innovative technologies like Flux can deliver a seamless, one-touch experience for customers at check out - as well as benefit the planet by reducing the amount of paper waste created by receipts. It’s been great to see the level of interest in Flux from customers and retailers this year, and we can’t wait to share more updates in 2020.”
