The saving and investing app, Acorns becomes the first to leverage
Wildfire’s platform for the mobile Safari browser
Solana Beach, Calif. – September 15, 2021 – Wildfire Systems Inc., an innovative financial technology platform which powers reward and loyalty programs, today announced the availability of its white-label offering for Apple’s mobile Safari browser. Wildfire® will power Acorns’ Safari browser extension for Acorns Earn, enabling customers to earn more money from thousands of brands while they shop online. Wildfire already powers Acorns’ desktop Chrome extension for Acorns Earn.
In June 2021, Apple announced a major update to the Safari browser in iOS 15 that will allow iPhone owners to use extensions. Safari is the first mobile browser for iOS to offer extensions, removing the need for users to download separate apps that act as extensions. Wildfire is the first company to offer white-label mobile Safari extensions for earning rewards and cashback at thousands of online merchants.
“We’re excited to work with Acorns to be among the first to launch a mobile Safari browser extension for cashback rewards and expand the opportunity for their users to earn and invest when they shop on their iOS devices,” said Jordan Glazier, CEO of Wildfire. “Our white-label platform enables our partners to drive loyalty and retention, by providing their users with cashback rewards and savings at over 35,000 global e-commerce merchants.”
“Wildfire has been a valuable partner in supporting the growth of Acorns Earn,’’ said David Keegan, VP of Experience & Earn at Acorns. “We are thrilled to be able to expand the ways our customers can earn money for their future when they shop with this new mobile Safari browser extension.”
In August 2021, Wildfire Systems announced $15 million in Series A funding for its white-label monetization platform, led by TTV and QED Investors. Wildfire’s versatile platform helps partners across a full spectrum of verticals, such as financial institutions, search engines, browsers, rewards services, telecom providers and device OEMs. Their new white-label mobile Safari browser extension will allow Wildfire’s enterprise partners to embed social commerce, rewards, and cashback offers into existing customer journeys on iPhones. Not only does Wildfire drive incremental revenue for merchants, it also enables enterprise partners to earn revenue from organic, everyday purchases and social sharing, while boosting customer retention and loyalty.
