Everyware is a conversational payment gateway that sends automated text receipts after every purchase to authorize and validate payments to prevent fraud. Sending a simple text receipt after every purchase will create a tether between you and the customer allowing them to text back when it's convenient for them. Opening this two-way communication with customers will help mitigate risk, improve customer service, and increase revenue. From merchant processing to sending simple text receipts, making text communication a part of the purchase process will improve the customer journey.
