A German frinXX lets consumers treat individuals or groups of friends to a real-life drink at the bar. frinXX gives consumers a way to buy a round of drinks for those they care about, even if they’re not present at the bar themselves.
How it works? Users begin by visiting the frinXX site or logging in via its Facebook app. They then choose the amount they’d like to spend along with the venue, and pay via PayPal, iPayment, ClickandBuy or immediate transfer. From there they’re given a code that can be sent to one or more recipients via email, SMS or Facebook, along with an optional personal message. Shown to the bartender, that code serves as payment for the designated sum at the bar.
A simple concept, with very interesting & relevant application!
