Dip App Offers High Street Vouchers

Belfast startup throws spanner in the works

15 May 2019 | 03.50 pm

A young startup team based in Belfast is launching a new mobile app intended to disrupt the voucher industry

The app is called Dip, an acronym for Deals in Places. It allows users to access deals, discounts and vouchers based on where they are in Belfast. The promoters are hopeful that retailers will use this new platform to target consumers that are in strategic locations such as commuter dense streets and areas occupied by their competitors.

CCO Chloe Henning commented: “We’re really excited to throw such a disruptive spanner in the works on the high street. We’re dedicated to putting the power of choice in the consumer’s hand via their mobile phone whilst encouraging healthy competition amongst retailers along the way.”

The app is free to download and the deals found on the app are free to save and redeem.

CEO Glenn Reid explained: “This is made possible because it is a self-service pay-per-click platform, much like Facebook and Google. Businesses create their own deals, target them to the appropriate audience and decide where on the high street they can be accessed.”

The team of five behind Dip, two of whom are  students, have received support from both of the city’s universities and currently work from the recently opened Catalyst fintech hub located in the centre of the city.

The app will launch on Android first and on iOS later. All going well, a Dublin release will follow in 2020.
