Why Perkville chose CheddarGetter
The founders of San Francisco based Perkville felt there was a gap in retail customer loyalty programs.
Current programs required too much friction: downloading an app, pulling out a card, or using a printout. Perkville’s application requires none of these and allows merchants to provide a virtual rewards program exclusively through a customer’s email. The entire interface runs on an in-store tablet (i.e. iPad), or can be easily integrated into a pre-existing point of sale system.
Perkville’s billing model required an application that would allow for segregated monthly billing plans, flexibility when capturing payments, free trials, and most importantly, metered billing. Additionally, since Perkville would be managing both its merchants’ accounts and its merchants’ customers’ rewards accounts, a recurring billing platform was required that could scale indefinitely.
While CheddarGetter offers all of these features and more, Perkville chose CheddarGetter specifically for its robust metered billing capabilities. The loyalty program provider offers four different monthly billing plans, each with a different limit on monthly transactions. Once merchants exceed the allotted monthly limit, they are billed on a variable, per-transaction basis until the monthly cycle resets. By using CheddarGetter’s recurring billing platform, Perkville has been able to track transactions and bill its clients for continued profitability.
