PowaTag Expands to Canada with Moneris Deal

powatagMobile payment solution PowaTag is set to expand into Canada following a deal with Moneris, one of North Americas largest processors of debit and credit card payments, which will become Powa Technologys preferred Canadian provider.

PowaTag enables consumers to connect with retailers in a variety of ways, combining QR codes, audio codes, beacons and in-app embedded features to allow consumers to make purchases via window displays, radio ads, billboards and TV ads.

“Technologies like PowaTag deliver a streamlined route to buying that is in high demand from todays consumers,” said Rob Cameron, chief product and marketing officer for Moneris. “Businesses need to leverage the ubiquity of mobile devices in order to convert as many customer touch points as possible into sales.

“Turning every point of contact into a point of sale is a very powerful solution for merchants. It fundamentally changes the way in which they can interact with customers, gain sales, and drive awareness.”

“We created PowaTag with the mission to transform the way people interact and transact with their favourite brands every day,” said Dan Wagner, founder and CEO of Powa Technologies. “With Moneris standing as Canadas largest processor and acquirer of card payments, this partnership is a fantastic endorsement of our vision to change the retail landscape.”
