How will OpHop improve on the existing experience for shoppers?
OpHop uses a combination of routes and geo-location.
Wherever you are, OpHop will find the closest store listing to you using GPS, with that store also being part of a route with a multitude of other stores in a list. The shopper can follow that route with the tap of a button, moving from store to store quickly, easily being able to see all store listing information, as well as communicate with the store.
Will OpHop be free?
Yes! OpHop will always be free for users and stores, with paid advertising models for stores to be explored down the line once we build an audience and verify effectiveness of the platform.
