Time after time we’ve been asked to suggest an offline coupon tracking solution. Until now, the usual response was to point to our Android, iOS, and Xamarin SDKs and instruct customers on how to wire them with our coupon API. Today, we’re happy to announce the Voucherify mobile app. Actually, two apps! For both platforms: Android and iOS - and both come entirely for free!
By adding the app to your e-commerce stack, you can enable coupon redemption at offline points of sale and analyze promo activity on the go. Read on to learn how you can leverage offline coupons for your business without spending tons of money on IT infrastructure.
The primary goal of the app is to allow you to validate and track coupons offline. The good thing is that you can also use 2 coupon formats:
The second, no less important, part of the app gives you the ability to monitor successful and failed redemptions, so you can get an instant overview of your promotion activity everywhere.

That’s it when it comes to theory. Let’s see how you can use it in practice.
We’d like to share the list of mobile coupon use cases we encountered when talking to our customers.
You can note that these scenarios cover seemingly completely different scenarios. This comes from the fact that Voucherify coupon API is very flexible and therefore used successfully by both fast-growing startups and massive enterprises. The common denominator though is that it enables any company to precisely adapt coupon, voucher, promo code or gift card infrastructure to their business requirements. And then to scale it as the project grows.
With the mobile app, tapping into offline coupon strategies just got easier. No heavy infrastructure is needed. Sign up for Voucherify, download the app, and then configure it to work with your account - that’s it!
