Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) November 14, 2012
SafetyPay™, the real time, safe online-banking payment solution that enables consumers to shop from merchants worldwide and pay directly from their bank account in their local currency, today announced that the company was chosen as the winner of Airline Information’s Lion’s Den Challenge. SafetyPay was chosen from among four presenting organizations by a panel of travel industry leaders at the Airline & Travel Payments Summit in London, Great Britain.
“We’re very excited to be recognized by industry leaders who succeed in an extremely competitive and challenging global environment,” said Manuel Montero, CEO of SafetyPay. “Their appreciation of SafetyPay’s relevancy as the only truly global payment solution that ensures zero fraud and no chargebacks, is very rewarding.”
Since 2008, Airline Information’s “Airline & Travel Payments Summit” is the only conference solely dedicated to reducing travel merchants' payment and fraud costs. With SafetyPay, consumers do not share sensitive financial information, like credit card numbers or debit card PINs. Subsequently, the company’s safe online-banking solution greatly reduces opportunities for identity theft or fraud.
“Airline and hospitality executives are rightly enthusiastic about SafetyPay,” said Christopher Staab, Managing Partner of Airline Information. “Their solution is significantly less expensive and much more secure than other payment methods. Their ability to let consumers pay in their local currency while settling with merchants in their own currency makes global ecommerce simple and seamless.”
Though consumers do not register with SafetyPay to use the service, the company provides merchants, like airlines and hotels, with marketing support to increase consumer awareness and adoption. The Lion’s Den panel recognized that these marketing efforts, along with the flexibility of SafetyPay’s solution, enable airlines to reach underserved markets and gain new customers.
SafetyPay is a real time online-banking payment solution that enables over 250 million consumers to shop from merchants worldwide and pay directly from their bank account in their local currency. The SafetyPay solution is available in the USA, Europe, Canada and Latin America. SafetyPay mitigates fraud and ensures no chargebacks while supporting mobile, call center applications, e-invoices, pay-outs and promotions.
