Why we do it?

Life is lived in cities, yet cities are static. While our social relationships are dynamic and personal our commercial relationships are one size fits all.

At Reloyalty we believe that every customer purchase should measure our individual loyalty to the places we love and be rewarded accordingly. We are building a loyalty computation engine on top of our every day transactions to make lives in cities more engaging, personal and giving more value for the lifestyle we have. 

The way we experience cities can change completely.

How we do it?

Reloyalty personalises every purchase in the city, by building a loyalty engine on top of payments.

We allow customers to connect their bank cards to our mobile application via the APIs of the new Open Banking / PSD2 Standard in Europe. Reloyalty analyses every transaction and allows merchants to set personal loyalty campaigns based on individual clients’ behaviour. Reloyalty is building a connected citywide reward system on top of financial infrastructure. We start with cashback rewards and gradually expand to a whole range of services.

We open the UK market in a partnership with one of the most innovative mobile banks and gradually open other European markets and bank partnerships.
