Finally it’s time to have a chat about the life-changing Chip, the Store Chip.
JellyChip is proud to have charity gifts on the website which make a real difference. These gifts are submitted by charities that want to work with JellyChip to help provide our users a way to change lives. Once a user purchases a gift with their points, JellyChip pays for the gifts and provides the funds to the charity to buy the gift. It’s a simple as that!
The JellyChip Store has seen various iterations over the course of it’s 18 month lifespan. But what I’ve noticed time and time again is how we’ve ventured further from our goal of simplicity each time. Our Store today is a magical and wonderful display of something, a flower or some form of a trap-like system that opens up. I’m not sure, but it has needed a facelift for a long time. I understand the ethos behind the current Store – it should be an adventure to explore categories and gifts, and venture into each category to see the number of gifts purchaseable, with a whole lot of tapping. But it’s just not accessible for the user, see below.
In line with JellyChip Version 2, the new Store Chip will have a corresponding Feed that is the most simple thing on the planet. It will specify and list all available gifts on the Store by category and show their country of impact. This is a much more visually appealing approach to the JellyChip Store and will display gift icons in full colour vibrancy. Note here that the gifts displayed in the images below are not the confirmed gifts on JellyChip Version 2, but serve as placeholders for when they arrive.
Now if a user was to click the “See More” text for any particular category they would view that category’s gifts in a nice big list. See in the image below that we have picked the “Health” category. This is a tidy way to view all gifts in a particular category and their corresponding costs, all in one list! You will also see that charities have not been named yet (Charity 1, Charity 2 etc.), however the gift title and location of impact will appear for ever gift. Gone are the days where a user would have to hover over each gift to discover the price, they are now here in a readable list form.
So let’s say, as a a user, I pick one of the gifts from the “Food and Income” category. Here I will be able to see the full gift in the Feed with a title, description, cost, charity and place of impact. This is as simple as using any other Feed on JellyChip and will provide the user a quick and direct way to make an impact.
If I was to then purchase the gift I get a thanks! Note again that this gift is subject to change but the UI is correct. Here I can share my life-changing, innovative and free purchase on other social media like Facebook or Twitter, or share the news via email for a chance to receive 50 points. This is JellyChip’s way of saying thanks to our users for making an impact, but also encouraging users to share the good news about their action – it’s worth sharing. Once this is done I can tap the Profile Button and go to my Profile Chip to see the impact I have made. Whether this is gaining a level, or earning a new title, I have just made a difference and it will be available for all eternity on my Profile to show to my friends.
As with all other Chips, the Store Chip will also have a Daily Quest located in the Question Mark of the Chip. And you guessed it, the challenge is to buy gifts each day. If you fulfil the requirement located here you will receive 100 points!
Right now, we’ve had to ensure that the transition to the new Store Chip is smooth. In this way we have had to ensure that users are rewarded for the hard work they have put into buying gifts on the current site. In this way they will be recognised by having a “veteran” title under their name when they launch the site for the first time (in Version 2). They will also receive a corresponding number of gifts bought located next to their Gift Icon on their Profile, based on their activities in the beta site.
However in future updates, we will be creating a “History” section in the Profile Chip for users to still show off the glory of their past achievements. We know that charities change their gifts annually and JellyChip may have to change its gifts too, but we want to recognise the impacts made by our users and highlight them in an appropriate manner.
When we launch the new site, we will be launching with only a small number of gifts to ensure our Store guarantees the biggest impact. As per our original post on JellyChip Version 2 we want users to band together to make significant impacts in key areas and believe that a small number of gifts will ensure this. That said, be prepared for more gifts to be added over time and for the corresponding Profile Chip to grow with these new gifts too!
The JellyChip Store is the life-changing Chip and one we believe has the power to make such a phenomenal difference in the world. I can’t wait to show you what we’ve created and look forward to you buying as many gifts as possible very soon.
