That's a great pivot, and one I'll seriously consider using on my site.
If it works as well as I hope, I think you may wish to reconsider your pricing model.
I'm still interested in exploring other Facebook-API-related ideas with you guys; I'll contact you offline.
Something to consider and perhaps hedge one way or the other.
By the way, what's up with the Zuupy name? Everyone will have to explain and spell it out when telling a friend.
We have considered letting non-Facebook users participate, but the core benefit to the retailer is traffic from and visibility within Facebook. Perhaps we will add another for Twitter, based on number of Tweets. But between Facebook and Twitter, we had to go with Facebook.
Thank you for your feedback!
it seems people are liking the deal - not your page - hence (as of right now) 6 likes for the deal and 10 for the page? this brings up the question of who gets the user data - i.e. if you're emailing them and after the deal is over the liked item on facebook doesn't tie in to the rest of the company's property what follow up can the company do with these sales leads?
When the deal is over, we email the deal participants a coupon code, which can be used during the checkout process. This coupon code is supplied by the retailer during creation of the deal, with terms identical to that of the deal.
As for following up with participants, we may allow mass-mailing from our back-end for participants of a given deal, for retailers to disseminate fine prints, etc. We will not hand over email addresses though.
