PACE – Pace Payment Systems and @Pay have announced a partnership to integrate a text-to-pay solution to its suite of secure payment products. The combined technologies represent faster payments by delivering more of a consumer-minded payment environment, while making future payments easier by not requiring the cardholder to repeatedly enter sensitive card data.
WORLD PATENT – World Patent Marketing, a vertically integrated manufacturer and engineer of patented products, announces the Change Card, a technological invention designed to provide cash shoppers with a way to receive every single cent of their change. The Change Card is a technological invention that provides a method and system of aiding consumers when it comes to purchasing in cash. A lot of establishments price their merchandise in odd amounts in order to prevent them from providing the actual change to their customers, particularly if it an insignificant amount. This invention allows cash shoppers to get back all their change by requiring the establishment to electronically deposit it to the card owner’s account. By doing this, consumers will be able to gain back some savings and establishments will no longer try to find ways on how to dupe their cash shoppers of their exact change.

All users have to do is enter some basic information (e.g. company name, credit card number, charge amount, frequency, etc.), and Automaticard goes to work by automatically sending a reminder when a credit card is about to be charged
