- PayNearMe has integrated Cash App Pay into its app.
- The move allows PayNearMe’s end users to pay their bills using their Cash App accounts.
- The native integration helps users make payments within the app without having to manually re-enter their card or bank details.
Cash payments platform PayNearMe announced it is adding more payment options today by natively integrating with Cash App Pay. The California-based company is leveraging Block-owned Cash App Pay’s technology to allow its users to pay their bills using their Cash App accounts.
“We are excited to be early to market with Cash App Pay, a payment type that is growing in popularity,” said PayNearMe Chief Product Officer John Minor. “By offering Cash App Pay, we’re enabling our clients to provide their customers with more payment options and greater convenience.”
By natively integrating Cash App Pay, PayNearMe’s end users can make payments within the app without having to manually re-enter their card or bank details. The seamless user experience keeps users’ sensitive information secure while enabling them to complete transactions in a few taps. Payments made using Cash App Pay are saved alongside all of the user’s other transactions in a single ledger.
Cash App was founded in 2013 as a peer-to-peer-payment platform. The company has since become a more robust, banking-like platform that enables users to hold funds, spend their money using a QR code or cash, invest, manage their Bitcoin, and file their taxes. It has built up its user base to 53 million monthly active users.
PayNearMe focuses on serving un-and-underbanked populations with its cash-based billpay tools. The company partners with more than 40,000 retail stores, including 7-Eleven, Walmart, and Family Dollar, to allow businesses to offer their users cash payment options.
PayNearMe launched a product called MoneyLine in 2021. MoneyLine allows gaming and sports betting operators to offer a payment gateway, hold deposits, make payouts, and more. Including a fresh $45 million round earlier this year, PayNearMe has raised $118 million in funding since it was founded in 2009.
