ZipZap, the global cash transaction network, is partnering with Softgate Systems to extend its transaction payment location network to around 18,000 independent agent locations (view press release). Softgate Systems operates what it claims to be one of the largest networks of financial distribution and walk-in bill payment centres in the US. Through the new partnership ZipZap will integrate into this network to enable its cash preferred users to complete transactions at more local merchants in their neighbourhood.
“Partnering with Softgate enables us to rapidly expand our payment centre network into local communities across the US,” said ZipZap CEO and founder Alan Safahi. “This expansion will provide consumers with more locations to make payments for ZipZap transactions at the neighbourhood stores they frequent regularly.”
