Hypur app provides increased legitimacy to under-served industries.
Arizona, November 15, 2018 – Hypur Inc. (Hypur) announced that its mobile app is now available for download on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store. The Hypur app makes it easier and more secure to pay with Hypur.
Hypur is a leading provider of technology for financial institutions serving money service and legal cannabis businesses. Since 2016, financial institutions have used Hypur’s secure, transparent payment platform to provide electronic payments for cannabis businesses.
With features such as Face ID, Touch ID, and auto check-in, the Hypur app dramatically improves the in-store payment process for customers and merchants. Hypur can also be used for order-ahead, delivery, online and business-to-business transactions.
To prevent fraud Hypur uses a two-step payment process of checking-in to a store and entering a 4-digit Personal Access Code (PAC). The Hypur app enables users to auto check-in so paying is as simple as entering their PAC.
In recognition of the importance of secure, legitimate, and transparent electronic payments are for the cannabis industry, Hypur has chosen to announce the release of its app during the MJBizCon in Las Vegas, the largest Marijuana Business Conference in the United States.
Without access to credit and debit card processing, cannabis businesses are forced to rely on cash or unreliable work-around payment products that put customer information, and their reputation, at risk. “Hypur provides a traditional shopping experience for customers and brings legitimacy to these businesses so we are thrilled to provide an even better shopping experience with our app,” said Christopher E. Galvin, Hypur’s CEO.
Interest in Hypur from state officials, financial institutions, businesses, and customers continues to increase as marijuana sales and legalization expand. “Hypur is expanding across the United States and is working with financial institutions interested in launching a national program to better serve these businesses and communities,” added Galvin.
Hypur’s app is free to download and there are no fees to users paying with Hypur. A Hypur profile is needed to pay with Hypur, but signup is free and provides instant approval.
