Kuapay Brings Mobile Solution to NYC

Sept. 4, 2012

Kuapay, a Santa Monica, Calif.-based mobile payment technology provider revealed late last week it has expanded beyond its Southern California base to begin serving merchants in New York City. Kuapay has implemented its solution—which enables customers to pay at the POS by scanning a mobile device that presents a QR code—at The Bean, a local coffee emporium with three Manhattan locations.

“We are excited to enter the New York City market, which has a diverse mix of customers that demand an optimal experience from every merchant,” said Kuapay founder and CEO Joaquin Ayuso de Paul. “We’re an independent company that is able to move fast to meet the needs of our broad base of clients. We chose The Bean because they are also a dynamic company that is moving to aggressively capture customers and we admire their success.”

In addition to the coffee house’s three East Village locations, Kuapy is powering mobile payments at a Midtown bakery called The Little Pie Company.
