InComm has announced that Softgate Systems, a provider of retail bill payment solutions, is integrating its biller content into InComm’s Cashtie API.
Due to this partnership, InComm-integrated retailers can now enable consumers to make cash bill payments in-store for 12,000 billers.
“By combining Softgate’s biller network and InComm’s vast retail presence, Cashtie lets us offer consumers significantly more retail locations at which they can pay their bills, making it easier for them to make payments on time,” said Rick Auletta, President and CEO, Softgate Systems. “Consumers can quickly pay their bills with a single scan of a barcode, while retailers can increase foot traffic and repeat business. It really is a win-win scenario for billers, consumers and retailers alike. We’re pleased to partner with Cashtie and provide consumers with more flexible payment options.”
“We are excited to support Softgate in the expansion of their PayXchange network,” said Thomas Cornelius, Senior Vice President at InComm. “Cash-based consumers now have more options than ever to make payments, and an additional benefit is that the process is just as quick and easy as any other transaction at the POS. For consumers, there is no stigma of standing in line at the payment service desk and no need to make any disclosures about their cash payments since the barcode is used as an anonymous payment trigger. Plus, there are extreme time savings and cost savings for retailers – cashiers can now focus on selling store products rather than servicing frustrated customers standing in line to pay a bill.”
