Enabling a Frictionless Shopping Experience
The Unified Payment Platform provides retailers with enhanced security, reduced cost and increased revenue. By using tokenization, the risk of card on file fraud is reduced by replacing key account information with temporary data. The Retail Wallet Engine enables in-aisle check-out options to lower overhead costs and reduce the number of POS terminals. The platform also helps increase revenue by allowing retailers to more easily engage in cross- or up-sell opportunities with integrated loyalty points and coupons. In addition, this facilitates direct access to detailed shopping data, allowing retailers, banks and merchant acquirers to offer a personalized shopping experience and more effectively compete in a crowded marketplace.
For consumers, the platform provides an effortless experience by unifying multiple units of value—including credit/debit, gift cards, loyalty points and coupons—into a single mobile app, along with digitized receipts and transaction history of purchases.
