Trusted digital payments for your citizens.

Secure Payments

We encrypt every transaction, do not share full customer financial information, and our fraud prevention gets better with every transaction.

Save Time and Money

Digital payments are more efficient: funds management is easier than checks or cash, plus online options help reduce office payment lines.

More options = happier citizens. Offer PayPal, Venmo, credit cards and more; online, mobile and in-person, whenever they want to pay.

Financial Inclusion

We’re committed to democratizing financial services; empowering citizens, businesses and governments to thrive in the digital economy.

93% of citizens believe government should offer digital and online payment options*

Over half would pay with PayPal or Venmo if the option was available.
