PayNearMe allows consumers to use cash to buy goods online, pay utility bills, make rent payments and repay loans, all via convenient printable or mobile barcode technology.
The integration with PayNearMe will enable hyperWALLET to offer cash as a payment acceptance option for the first time. This new cash-payment acceptance capability will be available to hyperWALLET’s customers in early 2014.
“We are pleased to expand our array of supported payment options,” states Bill Crowley, Vice President of Product and Services at hyperWALLET Systems Inc. “With PayNearMe, hyperWALLET will offer our corporate customers the ability to add cash payment options directly into their e-commerce websites.”
“PayNearMe is a great alternative for the underbanked demographic, or for those who simply prefer to pay with cash,” said Mr. Crowley. “We believe our integration with PayNearMe will offer substantial value to a variety of companies including direct selling organizations, as it will enable their distributors to pay with cash for products ordered via their websites.”
