You can just take a photo of the receipt and Thingsy will scan all the necessary product information and add it to your wallet.
Short answer? Lots of benefits! Long answer: You no longer have to keep your purchase receipts and warranty certificates in a folder or on a pile in the back of your desk drawer.

The biggest co2 emissions come from the productions of products. It is therefore important to use products as long as possible. By making it easier for you to repair, resell and donate your products, Thingsy helps keeping the co2 emissions per product to a minimum and reduces the demand for the production of new products. By taking care of the adequate recycling of products, we make sure resources are being reused as much as possible.
We have big ideas and a lot of projects in the pipeline. We are keeping you updated on our social media channels!
