The smartest commerce solutions that integrate the on/offline worlds
One of SK Planet’s goals is to bring smart innovation to the local and global commerce markets by using its O2O Marketing Platform. To this end, we utilize mobile technologies that provide an organic way of connecting different on/offline commerce platforms, which are aimed at delivering a variety of benefits and useful information to the users at the right time and place. This gives consumers a fun and convenient shopping experience, while offering sellers an integrated marketing solution optimized for the needs of their targeted customers. SK Planet will continue to enrich the lives of everyone through its wide range of useful O2O commerce services such as Syrup Wallet, Syrup Store, and ‘shopkick,’ integrating the online and offline worlds.

As a mobile shopping app, shopkick automatically checks in and rewards customers when they arrive at a participating retail store. Shopkick has delivered the ultimate shopping experience for the users while creating a remarkable marketing effect for the partnering merchants. Based on its innovative business structure and outstanding talents, shopkick has built the industry’s largest network of retail partners in just five years. Shopkick was also rated ‘the most-used shopping app in the U.S.’ in 2012. Furthermore, shopkick has been expanding the reach of its service across broader regions. For example, it entered Germany that serves as the largest market in Europe, in 2014. Through the acquisition of shopkick, SK Planet is now able to offer leading-edge mobile commerce platform services in the advanced countries across the globe including the U.S..
SK Planet made its full-fledged entry into the Japanese e-commerce market by launching a mobile gift voucher service called cotoco. The name cotoco was derived from the Japanese words ‘cocoro to cocoro,’ which means ‘from heart to heart.’ Partnered with 20 of Japan’s most famous brand names, including coffee franchises, convenience stores, and fast food, cotoco enables users to buy gift vouchers from partnering merchants via PC web, mobile device, or smartphone app. Users can send the mobile gift vouchers to loved ones by e-mail, LINE, or Facebook. Recipients of these messages can redeem their mobile gift vouchers for physical goods at 27,000 partnering stores across Japan or their respective websites. Aiming to become a leader in the Japanese mobile gift voucher market, cotoco will leverage its differentiated capabilities based on SK Planet’s successful know-how of operating a mobile gift voucher service in Korea.
