Slip 🧾

receipts are a hazard

setting the scene

  • after a long flight, you head to baggage claim to find that your checked bags never made it to your destination ✈️
  • the airline agrees to pay for any clothes you purchase while they locate your luggage, so you hit up your favorite shops 😏
  • when the airline requests receipts, you fail to find them in any pocket or tote bag
    • looks like you’re stuck paying for your purchases 🤬
  • this week’s company enables a seamless shopping experience by providing consumers and retailers with digital receipts

in a sentence

Slip is a mobile platform that enables shoppers to manage receipts and provides retailers with consumer data

  • shoppers: present a QR code at checkout to receive a digital receipt in seconds
  • manage: store receipts and receive personalized rewards and offers in the Slip app
  • retailers: Slip integrates with POS systems to create a frictionless and paperless checkout experience while providing data on in-store customers

bulleted version: similar to how a ticket collector scans your ticket at an event, a salesclerk scans your QR code to send a digital receipt into the Slip app 🎟

due diligence

what we like

  • ♻️ less paper: in the US, paper receipt production uses 12.4m trees and emits 4 billion pounds of CO2, yet 49% of receipts end up discarded
    • plus, 93% of paper receipts are coated with toxic BPA/BPS
  • ⏱ frictionless checkout: Slip helps retailers overcome slow e-receipt adoption caused by long checkout times, customer hesitancy to give personal information, and limited cashier training
  • 🛍 in-store data: as brick-and-mortar stores continue to face challenges caused by demand for online shopping and supply chain issues, Slip’s insights allow retailers to better understand in-person shoppers

potential risks

  • 💰 well-funded competitors: Slip may face competition from modern POS platforms like Square and consumer products like Apple Wallet that may innovate to offer instant receipts upon checkout
  • 🤔 scaling shoppers: while Slip provides shoppers with an innovative checkout experience, their scaleability depends on retailers purchasing the product
  • 💻 growth of e-commerce: as customers continue to shift their shopping online, Slip must convince retailers to increase investment in traditional commerce
