The majority of online retail stores require that shoppers hand over their personal email addresses to receive electronic receipts and future shipment confirmations. What often ends up happening as a result, however, is that shoppers are bombarded with marketing offers and spam emails in the days and weeks after giving out their contact information. Mavendi is an application that puts an end to all of that.
Mavendi serves a dual purpose for people who enjoy shopping online on a frequent basis. In addition to helping prevent spam from electronic marketers, the web-application serves as an expense-tracking tool for people having a hard time gauging how their shopping habits are affecting their monthly budgets. Enter a bit of personal information, and you’ll get your own Mavendi ID. Your Mavendi ID looks like a typical email address, but includes far more features than your average Gmail or Outlook account. Start handing over your Mavendi ID when merchants ask for your email address or personal contact information, and Mavendi will forward important messages on to your preferred email account. In addition to preventing spam from entering your sphere, Mavendi also saves all the electronic receipts that pass through your Mavendi ID account for future tax write-offs and product exchanges or returns.
To see how much damage you’ve done shopping each month, just log in to your Mavendi account and check out how much you’ve spent in each shopping category. For an even deeper look at your spending patterns, you can create your own categories and re-organize saved receipts to get a more accurate view of how much you’re spending online.
