The Streetify platform allows users to visit virtual high streets and the free website and app will enable shoppers to remain connected with local stores. It allows users to choose specific streets they want to visit and scrolling left or right to "walk" up and down. Once they see a store they are interested in, they can click to "enter" and view its Streetify website with all special offers, deals, and promotions that have been curated through Groupon and Rakuten.
Shoppers can also create their own personal "high streets," where they group together their favorite shops and share their streets on social media. The platform also allows users to follow other shoppers, including celebrities. Moreover, the geo-referencing technology will mimic the weather in the real world and showcase it in the virtual one.
