Our army of bots allows your users to passively collect item level purchase data from online retailers. All the user has to do is connect a store once and our bots will pull purchase history and continue to update your user's account with any purchases made after the connection is established.
Loyalty Card Transactions
The IM API can also passively collect purchase data from in-store purchases made using a loyalty card (at select retailers) as long as your user has connected his card to an online account. Again, one simple connection, endless valuable data for your user.
The IM API also has the ability to match product data to uploaded receipts. All your user has to do is snap an image of their receipts and IM does the rest.
