Play2Shop Debuts play2shop.com
Sep 27, 2013 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
Play2Shop announced its premiere free web application, play2shop.com, where members can play games, earn points, get free stuff and cash back.
"Play2Shop is radically enhancing the social gaming experience first pioneered by Zynga and others," proclaims Play2Shop CEO, John Benton. "Unlike 'virtual cows' and 'fake currency', Play2Shop rewards can be exchanged for real-world goods."
According to the company, visitors to Play2Shop sign up for a free account and start playing games and earning points immediately. The more they play, the more points they earn including skill-based bonuses. Points can be used to purchase a variety of real goods in the Play2Shop Rewards Showroom. They can also be used as the entry fee to tournaments for even bigger rewards, or used to bid on auction items, such as Kindle Fires, iPads and gift cards to top online merchants.
Play2Shop includes casual games playable on laptops, desktops, tablets, and mobile devices, and the company is working with numerous game developers to continuously enhance the Play2Shop gaming experience. More so, the company has created an API (Application Programming Interface) for integration of games ranging from native mobile games, Adobe Flash-based games and HTML5 games to advanced games typically available from Zynga and 3D-provider Unity Games.
Like Ebates, Play2Shop lets its members earn cash back from online shopping, typically between 2-10 percent but can range up to 70 percent from some merchants. Unlike Ebates, however, Play2Shop also rewards members with 10 Play2Shop Reward Points for every dollar spent, which can be redeemed for things like Kindles, iPads or a host of other valuable rewards. And, also unlike Ebates, Play2Shop offers a VIP option that increases cash-back and other benefits by up to 50 percent.
"Play2Shop members get rewarded for being active on the site, for inviting friends, for sharing links, and so much more," continues CEO Benton. "And many of our tournaments and rewards are enhanced by brand loyalty to our shopping partners."
Play2Shop incorporates real-time demographic matching to provide its members with the best gaming experience, shopping options, and targeted rewards. Members can adjust settings with simple 'sliders' to fine tune their overall experience and preferences.
The company is also providing custom tournaments and rewards for the most loyal members, local charities, and favorite causes. An optional VIP program provides members with 50 percent more points on every game played, access to exclusive tournaments and rewards, and up to 50 percent more cash-back on purchases.
Play2Shop is powered by a proprietary platform that combines every aspect of the product into a single unified solution. The platform was developed internally by the company in conjunction with CrunchFire Technologies, and includes advanced monitoring, fraud detection and prevention, game integration, campaign management, automated fulfillment, user and administration consoles, and more.
The platform is designed for performance, reliability, security, and scalability, and is currently hosted with proprietary components on optimized instances of the Cloud.
Play2Shop is a reward and gaming site.
