About Us
Rippr Mantra:
Transform Shopping
Rippr Mission:
Better shopping through fun and rewarding experience in crowds.
Rippr Vision:
Higher NZ dollar value for buying in crowds.
Rippr Motto:
All for One and One for All.

We at Rippr believe that in crowds our experiences amplify. They amplify even more, the more we are connected, interact and communicate within the crowd. This is our main motivator to bring crowds of loyal consumers around retailers who recognize, appreciate and reward them as a community every time they purchase. We use latest mobile technology and cloud computing to transform shopping to a socially fun and rewarding experience by helping retailers to build, retain and increase communities of loyal consumers who buy more and more often from them because they are connected with the store and interact with each other.
