PayNearMe Inc. Key Developments
ProfitStars Partners with PayNearMe to Simplify Cash Payment Acceptance
Mar 19 15
Jack Henry & Associates Inc. announced a partnership with PayNearMe through its Enterprise Payment Solutions (EPS) group. Fully integrated with ProfitStars' EPS product suite, PayNearMe frees businesses and nonprofits from the encumbrances of accepting cash as payment while enabling consumers to visit local retailers to pay for online purchases, rent, utilities, and more using cash. During the merchant's checkout flow, PayNearMe generates a payment code for each transaction; the payment code can be obtained through the merchant's website, email, text, or paper billing statements. The code can then be printed or accessed on a mobile device for the consumer to take into 17,000 trusted retail locations, including 7-Eleven® and Family Dollar® stores across the United States. The cashier (at that selected store) scans the payment code and accepts cash from the consumer, who receives a receipt as proof of payment. PayNearMe immediately notifies the merchant of payment and transfers 100% good funds to its account via ACH. Merchants can then track the life of their transactions within the ProfitStars EPS system. PayNearMe's solution virtually eliminates the risk of fraud or chargebacks. The fee is typically less costly than traditional money transfer services and the merchant can choose whether to absorb the fee or pass this cost on to the consumer, who benefits from the convenience of paying at local retail locations. Adding PayNearMe gives financial institutions another way to add value to their business offerings, creating customer loyalty and generating new revenue streams.

Many of the stores are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The funds are guaranteed to the business or government agency as soon as they are collected by the cashier. Features such as payment receipts issued to the consumer, automatic real-time payment notifications and unique barcodes assigned to each transaction offer added peace of mind that the transaction has been processed flawlessly.
