When will I be able to purchase a Rippl cup?
We are solidifying the final prototype of the Rippl tumbler. While we can't give an exact date now, our anticipated launch date is sometime between October and November. Like most businesses, we are experiencing delays due to COVID-19, so we appreciate your patience as we finalize the details.
When will my rewards arrive?
The Rippl merch will likely arrive the end of September - beginning of October. If you selected one of the rewards that includes a Rippl cup(s), we will be in touch with color choices and expect delivery sometime between October and November.
Do I have to pick a reward or can I just donate?
You have he ability to just donate directly! Simply select the "Monetary Contribution" selection and input your desired amount, rather than receive a reward.
THE EFFECT OF COVID19?
Coronavirus has impacted Ripplfect in more ways than just manufacturing delays. Most coffee shops have temporarily banned customers from bringing in their own reusable cups. As towns have slowly started allowing people to bring reusable bags to grocery stores again, we are looking into ways to limit cup contact and working with cafes on a case by case basis to determine the timeline for partnership launches. We want to make sure our partners and their baristas not only feel comfortable with the Rippl program, but are excited for launch. While we work out the preventative measures and details of the program, you will still be able to purchase a Rippl cup and enjoy it on the go or at home before we officially launch any cafe partnerships through the mobile application.
RIPPLFECT MOBILE APPLICATION
Can anyone download the app?
Anyone can download the app, however until we expand and partner with coffee shops nationwide it will only benefit you if you frequent a partnered cafe. For the MVP (Minimum Viable Product), we will primarily partner with coffee shops in the Northshore, MA area.
Is the mobile application live?
The mobile application is complete for MVP testing however we do not recommend downloading it until our partnerships are live.
How does it work?
The mobile application has your location. When your location is in a partner cafe, you will be able to select that cafe and take a picture of your Rippl cup if you have it and are using it. The application uses photo recognition to identify the cup and award you points. Time restraints restrict you from getting points more than twice a day. You are also able to buy monthly subscriptions from cafes who offer it.
Is it free?
You need to buy a Rippl cup in order to participate, but the Ripplfect mobile application itself will be free to download on the app store!
Do I receive equity in your company?
