Once Cash was King; Now PayRange Mobile Payment Network Rules with Over One Billion Transactions. Over half the transactions on the PayRange machine network are now completed with mobile payment.
Portland, OR (April 19, 2021) – Processing more transactions per minute than Bitcoin, PayRange has been quietly gaining momentum over the past six years. With rapidly growing numbers of users and locations, the network recently celebrated recording one billion cash and mobile transactions. The typical PayRange user averages 15 transactions per month placing it among the most frequently used payment apps. In the past, these transactions were mostly completed with cash and coin, but now over half the transactions on the PayRange network are paid with touchless mobile payment.
PayRange brings offline machines into the digital era by leveraging the consumer’s smart phone for connectivity, making it cost effective for businesses to upgrade all their equipment. The company’s patented technology is powered by an inexpensive Bluetooth dongle that plugs into virtually any automated retail machine in minutes. In addition to processing mobile payments, PayRange reports back cash transactions and other data to help better manage the business.
“The small ticket purchases people make every day add up to an enormous market opportunity, one we’re just starting to tap into,” says Paresh Patel, Founder and CEO of PayRange. “The network we’re building modernizes the experience for consumers, and empowers businesses with tools to optimize their sales and reduce costs. While surpassing one billion transactions is worth celebrating, we are most excited because we know this is only the beginning.”
The pandemic accelerated growth for PayRange as businesses and consumers alike have scrambled to find convenient and safe touchless payment methods. Named by Deloitte as one of North America’s top 100 fastest growing technology companies, PayRange is taking the crown away from cash to be the undisputed leader in unattended retail.
PayRange was founded by Paresh Patel, an unattended retail veteran, to provide operators and consumers with a simple and secure mobile payment and loyalty solution for laundry, vending, amusement, and other small ticket merchants. PayRange is the North American leader in mobile payments for unattended retail, with over 3 million users and a network of machines throughout 350 cities and towns in the US and Canada.
