PonPon. A Technology Project. Creating coupons in the cloud.

...

ABOUT THE PROJECT

PonPon.my is a near-complete product where its development started 15 months ago. It is a project I started as a method of solving life's hassle from my own personal experience. I've got the inspiration from a time when my mother went shopping for clothes. When we are about to make payment at the cashier counter, the cashier gave my mother one printed discount coupon while telling her to keep the coupon to entitle for 10% discount for the next purchase. My mother, afraid that she might lose the coupon, had instead requested me to keep the coupon. The funny thing is I too felt that I would lose the coupon myself. Suddenly, a thought came into my mind. What if we are able to turn these conventional printed coupons into digital format? A digital coupon where we can save into the growing trend of digital storage: the cloud storage. A digital coupon once saved, enables users to distribute across multiple platforms of mobile devices! Hence, this is a truly eureka moment for me.



After spending several months to define and refine the idea and business model, more thoughts and ideas were given to ease both the users and the merchants. Merchants now have more channels to distribute the digital coupon to users while paying less for the coupon distribution cost. These ideas would eventually lead to the creation of PonPon.my!




What is ponpon.my credit?
ponpon.my is free to use for all users, however, for merchants to push coupon via SMS or Email to users required ponpon.my credits, example 15 credits will be deducted from merchant account for every email push to user, 25 credits for every SMS push and 35 credits for every user snip your (merchant) coupon.

PLEDGE

We would encourage you to connect your Facebook with pitchIN before you pitch to the project. If not, your pitch will be identified as "anonymous" in the Project Page. However, if you choose to pitch anonymously, pitchIN would still have your information. We think it would be just awesome if we can see and identify our supporters in the wall of pitchers.

ANNOUNCEMENT

A pitcher/pledger does not need a PayPal account to pitch or pledge. What he/she needs is a credit card (Mastercard/Visa) or a debit card.

However, if you are not comfortable doing an online pitch/pledge - you can transfer the money directly to the pitchIN account as follows:

WATCHTOWER AND FRIENDS SDN.BHD
Maybank 564892100684

WATCHTOWER AND FRIENDS SDN BHD is the company that owns and runs pitchIN.

However, the person must send pitchIN the proof of transfer by attaching the receipt to the email address: pitch@pitchin.my with the Subject Heading: PonPon. Upon receiving that, the folks at pitchIN can then quickly update the project page.

Thank you again and we do hope you will support the project!
