Company Overview

We come from Visa, Apple, and PayPal and we're here to make payments painless for niche software platforms facilitating rent payments for property managers, ticket payments for festivals, and donation payments for non-profits ("merchants").

For 50 years, merchants obtained their Visa, MasterCard and AMEX accounts from independent reps with the promise of a lower fee. Today, merchants are migrating towards the use of niche software platforms to save time, speed service, track trends and more. The ability to accept cards via software is no longer “nice to have,” it’s imperative. Still, payments are a pain for niche software platforms used by merchants. Here, instant gratification in the tech world meets legacy systems and outdated practices in the payments space.

McKinsey predicted in 2019: "Over the next five years, the vast majority of U.S. merchant payments revenue growth will be acquired through software,” yet, legacy processors are ill equipped to support modern platforms. Understanding that this situation was on the horizon, we interviewed 300 platform CEOs (2015-2016) to uncover the perfect solution. Next, we built an MVP (Minimum Viable Product) to support a 3-year beta with 4 different platforms. This month we released Digitzs 2.0 to support enterprise-level platforms. http://digitzs.com/solution/

Today, Digitzs is the only solution that truly makes payments painless for platforms. The barriers to what we've created are high. Nearly half of last year's fintech acquisitions were niche payment technology start-ups like Digitzs. Our goal is to capture a modest portion of the $6 trillion U.S. payment space and to sell the company by 2024 to a legacy payment processor unable to support modern software platforms.

"After building a white label recurring payment platform for large merchants like Verizon, we discovered many issues surrounding card payments (merchant processing). With Digitzs, we can effortlessly create risk free merchant accounts in seconds and easily add our fee to each transaction, eliminating our need to invoice merchants every month. Digitzs Rocks. "
