Juniper finds that the largest volumes of coupon redemptions will be generated via app-based platforms by the end of the period, as providers see increased preference for the loading of both one-time and loyalty-based incentives for use in store. The research identified 3 stand-out technologies showing significant disruptive potential:
2. QR Codes
3. Invisible payments
For the first time, Juniper has quantified the volume of chatbot coupons as 25 million this year, with this set to reach 1.1 billion by 2022. The technology will enable greater personalisation of offers; particularly through use via social media, and at a fraction of the cost of using human operatives, and will aid in driving commerce transactions both online, and in store.
Additionally, technologies which streamline the shopping experience, such as invisible payments, or provide additional information and linked offers, such as with QR codes, will greatly enhance the in-store experience, driving footfall for physical retailers.
