As reported to Europa Press from the aforementioned park, this new platform, which means digitizing the so-called ‘impulse purchase’, is already used by the main players in the European payment market, and the ‘startup’ has talks with three of the six giant technological companies of the United States for their integration in different applications.

It should be noted that in Spain, ‘PayThunder’ has been tested as a means of payment for the bus service in Córdoba, used daily by 28 percent of the inhabitants of this city. Other user companies are ‘Phoodme’ -a ‘app’ for payment and management in restaurants-, ‘Crossbuy’ -system of discount coupons- or ‘Slidpark’ -payment in green and blue parking areas-. In addition, it will be able to test in the next edition of the ‘Shopping Night’ of Córdoba.

On the other hand, ‘PayThunder’ has signed an agreement with the company Tecnilógica to integrate its technology in digital signage solutions, ‘SmartTV’ and ‘App Commerce’ of last generation and that will revolutionize the retail environment and ‘retail’.

 In this regard, the technology of ‘PayThunder’ allows any company to send consumers commercial messages, promotions or offers of products and services to ‘smartphones’, through any transmitting device, such as televisions, ‘Bluetooth’ beacons, ultrasounds or ‘Beacon’ devices – the size of a coin and capable of emitting signals at a distance of 50 meters.

As an example, he emphasizes that “a fast food company can send its promotions to football fans through an announcement made during the break of a game, or a ‘retailer’ direct personalized offers to visitors of its commercial surface in function of its approach to the products for sale “, explains Gómez.

The conversion in purchase of an offer received by the user can multiply up to one hundred with respect to the average; likewise, compared to the usual dropout rate for Internet purchases of 80 percent, ‘PayThunder’ has a ratio that can be reduced to one percent.
