Sweden based mobile payment provider, Payair has expanded into the USA and will offer its QR code based service to retailers.
With PayAir, customers can complete the buying process, by taking just three steps: 1) Open the Payair App and scan the QR code; 2) Self-check-out and approve the purchase with a PIN; and 3) Confirm payment from debit or credit card of choice.
Payair's "card in a cloud solution" makes it possible to carry debit and credit cards on a smartphone without storing sensitive data.
"With Payair's proven, powerful solutions now achieving global recognition, this is the right time to bring Payair to the US market. We are confident that we have formed the right strategic alliances in the United States to make this happen" - said Staffan Ljung, CEO, Payair.
Payair has been "live" since 2010. Thousands of users have signed up to use and benefit from Payair technology. Launched in partnership with Scandinavia's Swedbank, Payair continues to add significant new customers daily. Just a month ago, Payair acquired its first $100+ Million retail merchant, Webhallen, and empowered Webhallen customers to purchase electronic and other products with mobile phones.
