The Perk Hero shopping and food app which offers loyalty points has launched in Vancouver at EasyPark’s downtown parking locations in Gastown and Pacific Centre.
The app allows vehicle owners to pay for parking from their smartphones, with support for mobile wallets such as Apple Pay, Google Pay and Alipay. Drivers scan a QR code from their smartphone then pay for parking seamlessly, explains the app’s CEO Jonathan Hoyles, to iPhone in Canada.
“Expanding our merchant reach into other verticals, such as parking payments, gives Perk Hero users and EasyPark customers a seamless and effective option to pay for parking in a safe and convenient way, while also earning loyalty rewards,” says Hoyles, in a statement. “We are excited to have EasyPark as part of our community of Perk Hero merchants and support their mission of providing safe, clean, friendly, convenient and affordable parking to the Greater Vancouver community.”
Nigel Bullers, CEO, EasyPark added, “My philosophy has been about ensuring EasyPark implements effective technology to lead the parking industry and have our customers feel safe and secure when parking with us. Perk Hero is a great addition to support that as we continue to offer the best in safe payment options, to our valued customers, with reward incentives.”
Perk Hero is owned by parent company Vancouver-based Perk Labs.
