‘PRIMO Freedom’ Launches to Transform Mobile Shopping Experience with Social Media Influencers

QR code-based commerce app expands with new platform offering for influencers and merchants to sell and earn directly through social media

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA | TOKYO, JAPAN – 13 Jul, 2017 – Primo Co., Ltd. today revealed a significant expansion of its existing mobile commerce and payments service with the launch of PRIMO Freedom. As the first visual affiliate program designed from the ground up for social media, PRIMO Freedom enables influencers to earn commissions in real-time by searching for products, embedding a PRIMO QR tag in their photos and videos, and selling to followers through a variety of social media channels like Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, and Snapchat. Starting today, influencers and merchants can sign-up for the program and start selling risk free through PRIMO apps on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.

“We’ve experienced increasing demand from both brands and sellers to offer more and easier ways to market products online. While we’re already delivering on this through our QR code-based payments technology, PRIMO Freedom is the next iteration in our offering that brings innovation to selling in the mobile marketplace. This type of visual influencer-based social selling has never been achieved before on mobile devices, and we believe it’s the future of mobile commerce,” said Abasa Phillips, Primo Co. Founder and CEO.

Since debuting its app in October 2016, PRIMO has attracted over 170 merchants globally, such as high-end audio-equipment maker Bang & Olufsen. Its proprietary payment infrastructure dynamically generates unique PRIMO QR tags that enable influencers to embed codes in photos and videos. Consumers can view and then purchase instantly from their mobile device – making it a fast and easy way to shop with just the click of a photo.

Unlike other influencer affiliate programs, PRIMO Freedom is a performance-based solution that connects merchants and influencers directly without agencies or middlemen that slow down the process and require monthly finder’s fees. With PRIMO, merchants simply select the products and commission amounts, and influencers choose the products they want to promote and sell to their followers by embedding PRIMO tags. Merchants pay commissions per sale, influencers earn with weekly payouts.
