Has anyone had any experience monetizing listing apps? I am building a listing app for niche retail stores in fashion forward markets. The COVID-19 pandemic has massively shaken-up the retail landscape with physical stores forced to close or severely limit their operations. As a result, retail has seen a rapid channel shift, with almost all online transactions besides essential items.
I am building a subscription-based listing app that connects shoppers in fashion forward markets (starting with NYC) with specialty retailers (Dover Street Market, Supreme, Aime Leon Dore). We use geofencing to notify shoppers when they are close to a store. Shoppers will be granted access to access to exclusive deals, flash sales, and access to events.
