LONG ISLAND CITY, N.Y.--()--FreshDirect makes history again today with the national launch of the first grocer payments application for the battery-powered Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device. The innovated offering lets consumers earn credits towards their groceries with every purchase.
“If a user does not have time to visit a grocer, that user can immediately begin to earn credits towards quality foods at FreshDirect by using the experience™ application.”
When the FreshDirect experience™ application is selected on their ePlate device, a consumer will earn additional savings at FreshDirect, as they use their Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device for their everyday purchases.
Consumers can sign up for a battery-powered Dynamics ePlate™ credit card device at www.dynamicsinc.com/freshdirect
“We’re thrilled to be teaming up with Dynamics Inc. to provide this one-of-a-kind experience™ application,” said Jason Ackerman, CEO of FreshDirect. “Now consumers can gain credits towards quality fresh foods just by making their daily purchases.”
“The FreshDirect experience gives consumers both quality and convenience,” said Jeff Mullen, CEO of Dynamics. “If a user does not have time to visit a grocer, that user can immediately begin to earn credits towards quality foods at FreshDirect by using the experience™ application.”
The ePlate™ credit card device is subject to a credit approval.
How It Works
ePlate™ is connected to an ecosystem of experience providers that each delivers an individualized brand experience, through an experience™ application, to the consumer. Prior to a purchase, consumers select multiple experience™ applications on their smart phone, tablet, or computer to port to their ePlate™ device. At the time of purchase, the consumer can use different buttons on their ePlate™ device to select different experience™ applications.
