Press for Plum District
So far, Plum District is available in 27 cities around the country, and we have over a million customers. We have more than 300 independent contractors, most of whom are local mothers who work on commission. They check with local merchants and organizations to arrange discount family tickets to a sports event, for example, or vouchers for a kid-friendly restaurant. The mothers are paid a percentage of the revenue we receive when our consumers buy those offers on our Web site.
