eBillme is the safest way for consumers to pay cash online. New buyer protection features offered by eBillme retailers at no cost to the consumer provide enhanced security and assurance services typically associated with premium credit cards. Features include return guarantee and price, in-transit and fraud protection. Customers can shop with complete confidence knowing that every eBillme transaction is guaranteed and protected.
In addition to giving consumers a more secure way to pay, offering eBillme can increase a retailer`s margins, because transaction fees are lower than those assessed by credit and debit card processors. eBillme also helps merchants reach the 84 million Americans who bank online, and spend 117 percent more than the average buyer while shopping online.
"There are many opportunities to capture retail sales this holiday season," says Marwan Forzley, President and CEO of MODASolutions. "eBillme is an ideal way for online merchants to attract shoppers looking to manage spending, strengthen customer loyalty, close more sales, and differentiate promotions from their competitors."
When shoppers choose eBillme at checkout, their order is confirmed with a bill sent to their e-mail address. Consumers simply pay the bill through their online checking or savings account-the same way they pay utilities, loans, insurance, and other eBills. The transaction occurs securely, bank to bank, with no personal or financial information required, or transmitted over the Internet.
In fact, because it takes advantage of the inherent security of the U.S. banking system, eBillme is the safest way to pay cash online. And because every transaction is paid with available funds, consumers don`t slip deeper in debt.
"There`s no doubt in my mind that eBillme is the right choice for us and our customers," says Mark Schnirel from GiftCards.com. "eBillme`s unique payment model, superior security and privacy, and exceptional merchant value are a perfect fit with our dedication to providing the best customer pricing and experience. We highly recommend eBillme to any online retailer who is looking for a better way to attract and retain more customers."
