A new way for consumers to shop online and pay with cash, without having a credit card or even a bank account
eBillme, the online payment option that enables consumers and small businesses to use online banking to pay securely with cash, has partnered with providers like MoneyGram International to assemble the largest network of US based walk-in locations with the lowest transaction fee. The company has introduced eBillme Walk-In, a new way for consumers to shop online and pay with cash, without having a credit card or even a bank account.
It has been reported that upon selecting eBillme Walk-In, online shoppers will be sent an eBill which can be paid using online banking or by presenting the eBill to a participating location. A locator is available to show consumers the nearest walk-in location based on their address. Consumers can simply take their printed eBill to one of the over 75,000 walk-in locations across the US, including MoneyGram’s nearly 40,000 agent locations.
Marwan Forzley, president and CEO of eBillme, said: “Millions of consumers use the Internet to browse but aren’t able to shop online because of limited credit and banking access. We want every consumer to be able to pay securely with cash and benefit from the eBillme platform, which includes a rewards program and buyer protection features giving consumers all the perks of credit cards without getting into debt or incurring extra fees. For merchants, eBillme Walk-In offers an opportunity to reach a new consumer market and increase sales.”
Greg Waltz, vice president and general manager of Payment Products at MoneyGram, said: At a time when credit card debt is burdening so many consumers, paying with cash is the appealing alternative. We have partnered with eBillme to extend its cash checkout solution to consumers without banking and credit access, bringing them the conveniences of shopping online.
