An online checkout experience isn't any fun ... until NOW! When a merchant adds our new rewards-based payment option, regardless of if you pay with credit card or popular blockchain currencies like Bitcoin, you're guaranteed to win rewards, points or prizes from GoPayWin.
I am thrilled to inform you that our team has completed merging of the GoCoin tech with the Ziftr platform. Last week we quietly launched with a small number of beta merchants that are rewarding their customers with GoPoints each time they pay with a credit card or a blockchain currency. We are currently launching with merchants in US and Canada for credit cards and worldwide for Blockchain currencies.
Blockchain currencies (e.g. Bitcoin) provide a new disruptive way to transfer value between parties over the internet as opposed to going through banks. Our platforms provide online merchants with a suite of software to better engage their consumers. Once our easy to install payment gateway is integrated into the merchant checkout flow, upon the shopper's first checkout, they securely save their payment method and preferences into the GoCoin cloud wallet. Like ApplePay, the GoPayWin wallet tokenizes multiple credit cards, and distinguishes itself by also managing multiple blockchain currencies (Bitcoin, Litecoin, Dogecoin, ziftrCOIN).
Most consumers expect loyalty points or rewards as part of their shopping experience. The GoPayWin gives consumers GoPoints each time they checkout. GoPoints are a blockchain backed coin that can be redeemed with participating merchants in the GoPayWin network.
GoPayWin and GoCoin earn revenues from payment gateway transaction fees and margin on selling blockchain currencies.
After launching service in December 2013, there were 3 major milestones reached in December 2015. After 6 straight months of steady growth, November and December were both cash flow positive months (setting aside the one-time cost of the merger). We successfully processed our one millionth transaction on the platform and, most significantly, completed the merger with Ziftr LLC & ZiftrCOIN LLC.
December will prove to be another record month in terms of the highest number of transactions, total dollar value and transaction fee revenue. For the first time since Bitcoin mining sales fell in 2014, other vertical markets have finally come on as predicted. This week GoCoin secured a long-term contract with our largest merchant and continue to seek the same with other high volume customers.
GoCoin now process more Blockchain transactions for payments of goods and services than any competitor worldwide. So don't think of GoCoin as the illusive "unicorn" everyone is looking for...think "Clydesdale" ... strong, steady and getting the job done!
The keys to GoCoin's success are :
Entering markets where Bitcoin and altcoins can have the most impact by providing a payment option where there are currently few if any others. Launching a scalable product that is secure, while maintaining a fast, to-market approach.
Maintaining the highest level of security and accountability.
Ensuring our Merchants receive their settlements expeditiously and in their local currency.
