Foursquare Testing Paid Promotions With NYC Small Businesses | Couponing, M-Couponing, E-Couponing, M-Wallet & Co. |

foursquare is testing paid promotions with a "handful" of new york city merchants as it tries to disprove critics and earn more revenue.


The four-year-old mobile app company has started allowing a “handful” of local New York City merchants to promote their store listings within the service, meaning they will be able to target Foursquare users in the vicinity. Until recently, promoted listings were limited to large national merchants such as KFC and Radioshack.
