Glance Technologies (CSE:GET.CN) announced that it has officially launched Glance PayMe for businesses, entrepreneurs and freelancers across North America.
As quoted in the press release:
Available now to businesses, entrepreneurs and freelancers across North America, merchants across all industry verticals can get started with Glance PayMe™ immediately with a free download and a fast, easy setup using their iOS device of choice, enabling them to accept payments from Glance Pay users via:
- Quick Response (“QR”) Code
- Bluetooth (automatically detecting nearby payments)
- Digital Invoices
- Pay by Photo
QR Code and Bluetooth payments provide merchants with extraordinarily fast, convenient and secure payment options from in-person customers, while digital invoicing enables merchants to keep digital records and accept payments from both in-person and remote customers. These payment options will be offered in addition to Glance’s revolutionary payment-by-photo capability, giving merchants an unmatched set of payment options, as well as Glance’s full array of features, including next-business day deposits, powerful anti-fraud technology, and a robust loyalty rewards program
Concurrently, the Company is launching a concerted digital marketing campaign across North America to promote Glance PayMe™ to merchants, freelancers and entrepreneurs, highlighting features including the app’s full set of flexible methods to get paid on the spot, its built-in loyalty and rewards program, and its success in fighting fraud and chargebacks with Glance’s signature security technology. According to the report “Freelancing in America: 2017” from Upwork, it is estimated that 57.3 million of Americans are freelancing (36 percent of the U.S. workforce) and contribute approximately $1.4 trillion annually to the economy, an increase of almost 30% since the previous year.
“We are proud to be providing the next step in the evolution of payment and reward systems, eliminating the need for clunky custom hardware like chip and PIN machines or outdated Point-of-Sale solutions thanks to our proven anti-fraud technology and versatile payment methods,” says Desmond Griffin, CEO of Glance Technologies. “We are excited about the potential of a mobile POS system running solely on a user’s existing mobile device.”
“A significant emerging sector of the economy is made up of freelancers and small businesses, and their payment needs, until now, have not been met,” says Sascha Williams, Glance Technologies COO. “The ability of Glance PayMe™ to deliver secure, low-fee processing for merchants without long delays in getting paid, makes Glance PayMe a mobile POS solution with wide appeal.”
Following a period of successful beta testing, the Company has been receiving positive responses from users commenting on fast payments, next-day deposits of received funds and hearing first-hand how Glance PayMe™ fits their needs.
Glance notes that in China, popular mobile applications such as Alipay and WeChat, which support the ability to pay by QR Code like Glance PayMe™, have revolutionized commerce and mobile payment is now the predominant form of payment in China.1
