Acculynk’s Payzur direct-to-debit payment platform aids businesses, such as online marketplaces, that regularly make payments to individuals or small businesses by offering a process that doesn’t require account verification, enrolment with a third party or parking the funds in a third-party account.
With Payzur Direct-to-Debit, payouts such as insurance claims, merchant sales and consumer refunds can be executed as services are delivered or payment is triggered with the money transferred to the debit card within moments, creating a differentiated user experience.
“Businesses are realizing that their constituents are looking for speed and simplicity and that offering both creates better business relationships and a tangible competitive advantage. What could be simpler than getting paid by providing your debit card number and faster than real time?” said Sandra Chesnutt, GM Payzur, Acculynk. “There is clearly a revolution going on; people are choosing to interact with businesses based on how well that business understands and exceeds their expectations, and payments are becoming a way for companies to differentiate themselves.”
