Online Shoppers Can Pay Cash Online at Discover Network Merchants
Feb. 25, 2011
eBillme, which enables consumers to pay cash for online purchases, announced that the payment option will now be available on the Discover Network through CardinalCommerce’s Centinel Universal Merchant Platform. Online merchants that accept Discover will now be able to attract the growing number of online shoppers who prefer to pay with cash. “This partnership is a pioneering approach to enabling online payments for our merchant network,” says Farhan Ahmad, general manager, prepaid and director of emerging payments at Discover. “Our core mission is to provide our merchants with more payment choices, and we believe this relationship with eBillme will enable us to do that.” To use eBillme, shoppers choose the option at checkout and their order is confirmed with a bill sent to their e-mail address. Consumers pay the bill through their online bank account or by paying at one of over 75,000 walk-in locations.
