Hownd Creates Support Vouchers to Help Local Businesses Impacted by COVID-19

As a business owner, one is usually prepared for the highs and lows, the tough times, and the late nights poring over every last detail of their livelihood. But in just a few short weeks, the COVID-19 outbreak has caused a once-in-a-lifetime disruption of rapid closures and mass uncertainty across industries on a global scale. At Hownd, we want to take a moment to offer reassurance that we’re all in this together, and advise that the time to respond is right now.

In order to provide assistance and create a vital influx of cash flow to sustain our merchants while they’ve closed, we’ve developed a meaningful and effective solution through Buy Now, Visit Later Support Vouchers to reach communities willing to help at this very moment.

What Are Support Vouchers?

Support Vouchers are specific promotions designed to appeal to local consumers searching for a way to help their favorite local businesses brave the storm of an economic crisis. With each purchase, the merchant receives the payment immediately while the consumer collects a non-expiring gift card or redeemable voucher valid for a future visit.

Are They Working?

Yes! The results so far have brought hope — and critical revenue — to businesses that need it badly right now. Through the generosity of supporters, we’ve already generated more than $500,000 in revenue over the past couple of weeks for our merchants. Thanks to our zero-risk platform, owners only pay a nominal flat Pay-Per-Visit fee once they’re re-opened and customers are coming back through their doors.
