Quicken to Leverage PayNearMe’s Prism API

Screen Shot 2017-01-23 at 11.37.23 AM

Cash billpay service PayNearMe announced last week its Prism API is powering bill presentment for Quicken. By leveraging the Prism API, Quicken can provide its customers with real time bill and account visibility.

The Prism API also offers Quicken clients same-day bill payment capability for utilities, telecom providers, cable billers, and more. The integration has helped Quicken bring “thousands more” billers to its platform.

Daniel A. Chen, Quicken’s head of business development said Quicken selected Prism because it is “extremely developer friendly” and “the documentation is among the best I’ve seen.” Chen continued,

“Prism API enables us to better support our customers by providing them with real-time insight into future cash-flow needs and upcoming bill amounts. It also enables us to monitor changes in a biller’s service that may affect our customers before they are noticed. The automated monitoring means we are able to troubleshoot more quickly than the manual process we were using before.

PayNearMe began offering access to the Prism API after it acquired Prism Money in May of 2016. Visa was the first client to leverage the Prism API. The company helps enterprise customers offer bill presentment capabilities to their consumer-reloadable prepaid card clients.

Founded in 2009, PayNearMe enables consumers to pay bills using cash at 17,000+ 7-Eleven, Ace Cash Express, and Family Dollar retail stores across the U.S. by scanning a barcode on their smartphone. Most recently, the company partnered with Comcast to power cash payments for XFINITY clients. PayNearMe presented at FinovateSpring 2013 and at FinDEVr Silicon Valley 2014. The company has raised more than $71 million in funding. Danny Shader is CEO.

Quicken debuted Quicken Online at FinovateFall 2008 in New York. The company, once owned by Intuit, was acquired by H.I.G. Capital in April of 2016 for an undisclosed amount. Eric Dunn is Quicken CEO.

PayNearMe Brings Online Cash Payments to ProfitStars’ EPS Smart Pay Express

PayNearMeCroppedHomepage

Two forces in the payments industry, ProfitStars and PayNearMe announced a partnership today. Through the agreement, merchants using ProfitStars’ Enterprise Payment Solutions (EPS) Smart Pay Express will have access to PayNearMe’s cash payment technology.

Financial institutions using the system will be able to offer their business banking customers an all-in-one payment platform to help businesses accept cash for online purchases from underbanked and cash-preferred customers.

When a customer makes a purchase online using PayNearMe, they receive a code, which they bring to one of 17,000 physical retail locations (such as 7- Eleven). Once the cashier at the store scans the code, the customer pays in cash. After payment, PayNearMe transfers the funds to the merchant, who is notified to ship the item the customer ordered online.

PayNearMeCashPayment

PayNearMe presented at FinDEVr San Francisco in 2014. ProfitStars last demonstrated its Budget Manager at FinovateSpring 2012.
