PRODUCTS & SERVICES:
A new location technology that allows the app to verify the user is actually present inside a store.
Shopkick broadcasts an inaudible audio signal at a high-pitch frequency that can be picked up by a smartphone's microphone, either through the store's existing music system or through a small transmitter. The shopkick app decodes the signal and the user receives shopkick's universal reward currency called "kicks."
