SEQR now live in USA
SEQR continues its geographic expansion with its launch in USA. SEQR has launched in five additional European countries earlier this year, establishing itself as one of the leading European mobile payment providers, with a presence in a total of ten countries. Now, with the addition of the US market, SEQR has one of the strongest offerings to both consumers and retailers in the world.
SEQR began to establish itself on the U.S. market earlier this year. Daniel Bessmert, General Manager of SEQR in the U.S., led the way, spending the following months focusing on building up SEQR’s U.S. organization and establishing strategic, long-term relationships with partners and retailers.
"We are very proud to be live in the U.S. now, and it is a real feather in our cap. We have an expansive growth strategy and the U.S. market is a key puzzle piece with over 300 million consumers, which strengthens our overall market position," says Peter Fredell, CEO of Seamless.
SEQR is now one of the very few players in the world to offer merchants with expansive geographic spread, which addresses both sides of the payment equation. With SEQR, retailers have a low cost, secure, alternative to payments offered by traditional card companies, and consumers have the ability to do all types of payments whether online or within the physical world, all in one solution.
"We are now all set strategically and have more merchants on the way in. Many businesses are interested in mobile payments, which I also witnessed during my time at Visa, Monitise and PayPal, who are all investing heavily in mobile payments. But everyone has been waiting for a mobile payment solution that can be implemented easily and cost effectively. SEQR is that solution," says Daniel Bessmert, General Manager of SEQR in the U.S.
