Christmas shopping in iPhone with new service SokoniPublished: 21. November 2011
DIBS, the leading provider of payment solutions for e-commerce, today launches Sokoni which is Sweden's first marketplace in your mobile. The launch is in collaboration with American Express. In the iPhone App Sokoni, several stores offer a wide range of goods and services to American Express Cardmembers in Sweden.
Now it's easier and more convenient to shop for Christmas gifts! The free app Sokoni handles the whole process from order to payment. With a few clicks and a personal code, the consumer can purchase products and services anywhere and at any time.
In Sokoni, a wide range of products is offered from more than 20 stores, including clothes, services, and gadgets. There will be several Christmas offers in the app. This is just the beginning and the range of products and services will expand continuously. During next year, several new features will be launched and Sokoni will become available in other smartphones.
“DIBS is driving the development as commerce leaps into smartphones. Sokoni will be expanded step by step and followed by several other initiatives for mobile commerce from us. We are proud to offer secure payment solutions also via mobiles. For us it is important that users feel safe when they shop,” said Eric Wallin CEO DIBS.
At launch, American Express Card is the only payment option. The purchases are reported in the Cardmembers' monthly statements and the members earn points as usual.
“Sokoni is an extension of our longstanding collaboration with DIBS in e-commerce. Our Cardmembers will now have an exclusive opportunity to easily and securely make purchases in a new way. Our Merchants, retail outlets which welcome American Express Cards, get a new distribution channel for products, services and offerings,” said Kathleen Fiorello, VP Head of Merchant Services Nordic Countries.
At launch, this is some of the stores offering goods and services in Sokoni: Bagtoo.se, Beach Lin, Frank Dandy, Top Streetwear, Invintium, Lars Bengtsson, MyTrendyPhone, Frappe, RoyalDesign.se, PAR Courrier, Flower House, GR8 Company, Box Experience, Lyko, Vivamondo, Skultuna and Fishit.
