Connect Social is a new and exciting Social Economy that is unique because it rewards consumers for their data while allowing Merchants to purchase VERIFIED Consumer data. This makes us stand apart from other big tech companies, who provide neither. Connect Social’s consumers are part of a social network, similar to Facebook, which allows them to shop at merchants, similar to Amazon. The difference, however, is that Consumers get paid for their data while shopping with local merchants. Local merchants receive 100% verified data in a synergistic economy where everyone benefits. Connect Social pays 70% of the transaction revenue back to the consumers that help build Connect Social.
