A massive wave of innovation in the payment industry and that consumers will be able to effectively “drag and drop” apps to their smart cards in the same way that they add apps to their smart phones today.
Boston, MA (PRWEB) May 08, 2012
Highly marketable and easy to remember, Card.com offers a unique branding opportunity for a new or established company to capitalize on a universally recognized word included in 124 million Google searches each month.
Card.com characterizes several major areas of growth in today’s market ranging from credit and debit cards to prepaid cards, reward cards, business cards and now cloud-connected smart cards. In an interesting post on Forbes.com last month, Greylock partners suggested that we’re in the early stages of a massive wave of innovation in the payment industry and that consumers will be able to effectively “drag and drop” apps to their smart cards in the same way that they add apps to their smart phones today.
A domain name like Card.com offers significant marketing and revenue opportunities to any company innovating in the space, including startups like Square, GoPayment and FocusPay and established companies like Google, American Express and Visa.
Just last week, Pleasanton, California-based market-research firm, Javelin Strategy & Research, released a study showing that Prepaid Card use was up by 18% in 2011 as consumers dropped traditional banking products such as checking accounts with higher fees.
“People used to think of them as cards for people who didn’t have a lot of money, whereas today they’re becoming much more common for a variety of uses and a variety of demographics,” said Beth Robertson, director of payments research for Javelin.
"Domain names like Card.com have a strong and memorable branding association and offer significant advantages to online businesses,” said Jeffrey Gabriel, President of DomainAdvisors. “Good branding will make your domain name memorable, but a memorable domain name will make your brand unforgettable.” It's not often that a domain name of this caliber becomes available for sale and DomainAdvisors is very pleased to be chosen as the exclusive brokerage firm to represent the sale of Card.com.”
