Perk Shop lets you gate access to merch and perks with POAPs!

Perk Shop is a platform that enables communities and brands to setup their own Web3 shop and provide redeemable rewards for owners of specific digital collectibles. Benefits can include everything from unlockable merch, to discounts, giveaways, and allowlists.

POAP holders can simply connect their wallet and Perk Shop automatically displays which perks they are eligible to claim. Access to token-gated rewards is highly customizable, such as requiring multiple POAPs or holding a POAP for a specific length of time. Each wallet can only claim a reward once; for physical items, all shipping info can be collected after claiming.

From the Perk Shop team: "The first step a brand should make when entering Web3 is issuing POAPs to their community. POAPs are a great way to test the waters and start building credibility. The next step is to provide utility through token-gated experiences. Now, using Perk Shop and our POAP integration, brands can easily onboard their community and delivery this utility."
