“With Mercury StoreCard, we’re making gift card and rewards programs simple for the consumer to use and simple for the merchant to manage,” said Travis Priest, vice president of value added services for Mercury. “With smartphones becoming a global phenomenon, merchants find it compelling to integrate mobile payments to connect with the digital consumer. Mercury StoreCard gives them the mobility they are looking for while tying it to services like rewards programs and prepaid services that create stickier customer relationships.”
