Utilizing InComm's DDA to offer a PIN-on-receipt delivery solution for Dollar
General eliminates the need to purchase and redeem physical prepaid cards for
Xbox LIVE memberships or virtual currency. Dollar General's customers can now
purchase Xbox LIVE points and Xbox LIVE Gold Memberships, available in
denominations of $19.99, $24.99, $49.99 and $59.99, directly at the register.
At point-of-sale, Dollar General's cashiers simply scan a UPC and generate a
receipt noting the number of points or membership period available and
instructions for redemption.
"We are excited to continue fulfilling a market need for a more efficient
payments process through the integration of our digital delivery application,"
said Dave Etling, vice president of business and product development, InComm.
"Through Dollar General, we are proud to offer Microsoft not only its first
entry into the general merchandise retailer channel, but also the
implementation of the first nationally available PIN via receipt redemption
for the Xbox."
"By offering unlimited digital payment services, our sales potential is never
limited by the number of Xbox LIVE physical cards we have in stock, and our
customers always have secure access to virtual currency for their favorite
games," said Todd Vasos, Dollar General's executive vice president, division
president and chief merchandising officer. "This new venture marks our first
major foray into the online video game category and we see a unique
opportunity which gives us another way to fulfill our commitment to helping
our customers save time and money, every day."
