The MCX CEO said the agreement with Chase will link MCX’s extensive network of owner-merchants – which collectively process over a trillion dollars annually in transactions at more than 110,000 retail locations across the United States – with Chase, which is number one in total U.S. credit and debit payment volume.
Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX) CEO Brian Mooney says
with CurrentC and Chase Pay, Chase’s 94 million cardholders will be able to pay and save using their smartphones in one easy, secure and seamless transaction. The CurrentC mobile app combines loyalty programs and payment accounts, automatically applying coupons, promotions and loyalty rewards at checkout.
“This partnership is a significant step in MCX’s mission to offer consumers the most convenient mobile commerce platform in CurrentC,” said Mooney. “We are excited to partner with an industry leader like Chase, which is committed to offering consumers real value and convenience.”
Discussing MCX’s progress in bringing CurrentC to market, including its ongoing public beta, Mooney noted that the company continues to gather valuable insights from Columbus consumers, who can use the platform at more than 200 participating retail locations, including local CVS/pharmacy, Exxon, Giant Eagle and Giant Eagle Market District, Kmart, Mobil, Sam’s Club, Sears, Target, Walmart and Wendy’s locations. The beta will soon expand to include select local Shell fuel stations.
