Super fast, less than 60 seconds! You’ll need to tell all your Committee or Friends to download the app so you can add them in the Admin management and select your Hosts. Then you’re ready to launch and promote your own branded society app!
You have to be an admin of the app to see the pencil icon at the top of the app. Click on the pencil and you will access the Admin management.
In the Admin, go to the Events section. You can post events with push notifications for everyone in your app to see. You are able to link events & tickets sales directly into your society bank account or to another payment booking platform e.g Student Union, Fatsoma, etc.
When you create an event type as ‘Freebie’, you will see the field for ‘Redeem Code’ appear, which allows you to enter a secret unique code (e.g. freecoffee123) as agreed with your retailer/shop. App users can then redeem the freebie by passing their phone to the retailer/shop for them to type in the secret unique code. Once redeemed, the app user will not be able to claim the freebie again. Give it a go!
You can post an unlimited number of events. Each new event will send a push notification alert to all your members.
In the Admin, go to the Adverts section. You can create in-app adverts, which can be directly linked to an external website/link. Great to use for your sponsors!

All card numbers are encrypted on disk with AES-256. Decryption keys are stored on separate machines. Stripe’s infrastructure for storing, decrypting, and transmitting card numbers runs in separate hosting infrastructure, and doesn’t share any credentials with Stripe’s primary services.
