SEQR launches market-leading cashback reward program and connects the service to consumers’ bank accounts.
Starting immediately, all who use the mobile payment solution SEQR (OMX:SEAM) will get a cashback reward of up to three percent on all purchases. The possibility to also connect the service directly to the individual user’s bank account makes the detour around invoices and bank cards superfluous, and is a strong incentive for consumers to make the switch from cash or card to mobile.
SEQR is making it smarter and easier to make mobile payments. The industry-leading reward program generates a cashback reward of up to three percent for users, and the possibility to connect the service directly to a bank account further simplifies payments.
“This reward program is far more attractive than what the card companies offer, with no fees or strings attached. It is very attractive financially. SEQR can also be connected straight to your bank account, making it even easier to use. This is how we are actively driving the change towards the smartphone replacing the wallet, ” says Peter Fredell, CEO of Seamless, the provider of SEQR.
No registration is necessary to receive the cashback reward. The cashback reward program is automatic for all SEQR users, valid on all purchases and effective on top of any other loyalty program or discount. All purchases made through SEQR from March 1, 2015 are included. The only thing required by the consumer is to make one purchase or more through SEQR per month – regardless of the purchase value – for a one-percent cashback reward. 12 purchases or more generates a two-percent cashback, while 20 purchases and above generates a three-percent cashback.
Today’s announcement follows the recent news that SEQR has developed plugins integrated with some of the world's largest e-commerce platforms. Easy connection to SEQR will enable hundreds of thousands of online merchants to offer their customers mobile payments.
