Title
(EN) VOUCHER PROCESSING SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME DE TRAITEMENT DE BONS D'ÉCHANGE
Abstract
(EN)
Computer systems for facilitating the sale and distribution of vouchers (e.g., restaurant vouchers) that may, for example, only be redeemable during a particular time window on a particular day. The system may display fixed prices for vouchers or allow consumers to bid on day and/or time-specific vouchers having a particular value. The system may sell the same day and/or time-specific voucher at different prices and set the price of the voucher based on, for example: (1) purchaser/bidder status; (2) the number of the vouchers that have already been sold; or (3) a substantially random methodology. The restaurant may set fixed criteria that must be satisfied before the system will award a bidding consumer a particular voucher. In other embodiments, in cases where a particular bid does not satisfy a pre-determined set of minimum bid criteria, the system may facilitate direct negotiations between the bidding consumer and the restaurant.
(FR)
L'invention concerne des systèmes informatiques pour faciliter la vente et la distribution de bons d'échange (par exemple, bons d'échange de restaurant) qui ne peuvent, par exemple, être remboursables que pendant une fenêtre temporelle particulière un jour particulier. Le système peut afficher des prix fixes pour des bons d'échange ou permettre à des consommateurs d'enchérir sur des bons d'échange d'un jour et/ou d'un moment spécifique ayant une valeur particulière. Le système peut vendre le bon d'échange d'un même jour et/ou d'un même moment spécifique à des prix différents et définir le prix du bon d'échange sur la base, par exemple : (1) du statut de l'acheteur/l'enchérisseur ; (2) du nombre de bons d'échange qui ont déjà été vendus ; ou (3) d'une méthodologie sensiblement aléatoire. Le restaurant peut définir des critères fixes qui doivent être satisfaits avant que le système n'attribue à un consommateur enchérisseur un bon d'échange particulier. Dans d'autres modes de réalisation, dans les cas où une enchère particulière ne répond pas à un ensemble prédéterminé de critères d'enchères minimaux, le système peut faciliter des négociations directes entre le consommateur enchérisseur et le restaurant.
