PAAY and USAePAY, a payment processing service for businesses, has announced a partnership to deliver an online payment service to hundreds of thousands of merchants.
PAAY will streamline merchants’ online transactions, allowing consumers to use the wallet to bypass the often lengthy online checkout process. All consumers will have to do is simply enter their number into the PAAY widget at checkout and the transaction is pushed to their phone where they will review the order and accept by inputting their personal pin.
Yitz Mendlowitz, CEO of PAAY, said: “Improving the way we make online payments has always been the goal of PAAY. We imagined an app that would ensure simple, fast, and, above all, safe payments for both consumers and merchants. Our partnership with USAePAY will enable us to finally bring our secure, innovative payment system to US merchants.”
Vlad Galyuz, VP of Technology at USAePay, said: “In the age of online security and vulnerabilities one can never be too secure with their personal payment information. PAAY offers a 2-factor authentication making payments secure and simple. USAePay is excited that this technology can be used along our intuitive payment gateway services. Merchants can now offer easier online checkout and customers can experience a speedy yet secure purchase process.”
