JYSK customers can shop with their mobile phones - SEQR now available in all 134 Swedish JYSK stores
Nasdaq OMX-noted Seamless and its payment solution SEQR has entered an agreement with JYSK, making it possible to shop with SEQR in 134 Swedish JYSK stores. Customers who choose SEQR mobile payment also get a welcome discount of 5 percent.
The SEQR mobile payment solution is simple and user friendly. After connecting the SEQR app directly to a bank account and scanning the QR code at checkout, the payment is completed with a few button pushes. The transaction is completely safe for the user since no sensitive data leaves the mobile phone.
”It is natural for us to let our customers shop with their mobiles. It’s safer, more convenient and more financially rewarding than cards and cash. That’s why we’re also offering our customers who pay with SEQR a generous welcome discount,” says Henriette Pedersen, Marketing manager at JYSK.
JYSK has 2 200 stores in 37 countries and a yearly turnover of 2.8 billlion EUR. SEQR is the only mobile payment solution in Sweden that works both in stores and online. More than 4,000 merchants have already chosen SEQR, including McDonald’s, Apotek Hjärtat and Willys.
“We’re thrilled that JYSK customers are now also able to shop with their mobiles using SEQR. We are incredibly proud to be a driving force behind making trade more modern and more mobile,” says Peter Fredell, CEO of Seamless.
SEQR offers several benefits in addition to mobile convenience, including the most generous rewards program on the market with up to 3 percent cashback on all purchases. Users can also transfer money to each other, sell goods by creating digital ads and sharing them in social media through MyShop, save receipts digitally, connect loyalty programs, pay for parking, and receive digital coupons and offers.
SEQR is also currently conducting a pilot program for the cardless register of the future. SEQR is available in 11 countries in Europe and the United States.
SEQR is also behind the fundraising initiative www.allainsamlingar.se. All donations made via the SEQR app are free of charges, and donors can be sure that 100% of their donation reaches their charity of choice.
