Sionic Mobile, a provider of mobile payments, promotions and loyalty rewards, has announced a partnership with electronic payment service provider MyECheck in order to offer a more comprehensive solution to merchants and their customers. Sionic Mobile is an innovator in the mCommerce industry known for using mobile devices and cloud technology to seamlessly connect merchants and consumers, specifically through the ION Loyalty app for merchants and ION Rewards app for customers.
ION Loyalty for merchants significantly cuts back on credit card fees and helps high-margin sales while rewarding customers for their patronage. ION Rewards for customers gives users one percent of their purchase back as “IONs” when they use a linked credit or debit card, two percent for a linked checking account and three percent with a stored value account. IONS can then be used at over 30,000 eligible national chains and local retailers around the country. Thanks to the deal with MyECheck, customers can earn double rewards when paying via ECheck.
The plan is for Sionic Mobile to integrate with the MyECheck mobile banking and payment system. The company is noted to provide the fastest, most secure and most cost effective method of processing payments in the country. MyECheck will provide several functions and services such as user registration and account services, security measures including fraud protection and electronic check payment services. The resulting platform requires no integration with existing point-of-sale systems and can be set up in less than an hour, according to Sionic Mobile.
“ION Rewards and Loyalty are the premier programs for driving mobile commerce, and MyECheck provides the best possible payment solution for mobile commerce,” said Ed Starrs, CEO of MyECheck. “We believe the combined technologies will offer the most competitive advantages in the mobile commerce industry.”
