VanillaDirect will feature two innovative services at launch with more to be added in the future:
- Load It Here allows cash-based consumers to easily and securely digitize their cash to load a wide variety of GPR cards. Load It Here utilizes InComm’s point-of-sale swipe reload technology to make reload experiences easier, faster and safer.
- Pay It Here empowers cash-based consumers to pay bills for thousands of service providers in cash with a barcode at many retail locations nationwide. Consumers can download a barcode at PayItHere.com or present the barcode on their paper bill to a participating retail location.
“VanillaDirect fulfills InComm’s commitment to retailers and consumers with new and innovative payment solutions,” said Phil Graves, President, InComm. “The ability to digitize cash at our retailers has evolved beyond simple general-purpose reloads. We are excited to continue to leverage our innovative technology and expand the options consumers have for making payments and loading prepaid accounts, which will provide access for tens of millions of consumers who use cash in their everyday lives.”
Despite many technological advances in the payments industry, many consumers still rely heavily on cash. A study by the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco found that 30 percent of American consumers prefer to use cash more frequently than any other payment instrument. With VanillaDirect, these consumers will have the added convenience of being able to pay participating billers and reload participating prepaid accounts at local retailers.
