uBUCK Technologies Announces Strategic Partnership With U.S. Prepaid Platform PreWay
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — LiteLink Technologies Inc. (“LiteLink”) (CSE:LLT)(FRA:C0B:FF) is excited to announce that, through its wholly-owned subsidiary uBUCK Technologies SEZC (“uBUCK”), it has entered into a strategic definitive agreement with U.S. prepaid platform, PreWay DBA UGO Hub.
uBUCK Pay, the ultimate digital wallet, allows customers to make online purchases at supported merchant stores, bars and restaurants, cash withdrawals at ATMs and send transfers around the globe without any transfer fees. At present, to obtain uBUCK vouchers, customers must log into their uBUCK Pay app to purchase pin vouchers using a credit card and then they may redeem their vouchers to convert it to uBUCK cash.
This partnership with PreWay will offer a distribution method that is unique in the digital payment space and allows uBUCK to serve the underbanked community in North America by giving users the option to purchase uBUCK vouchers in cash at nearly 7,000 convenience stores across the U.S. The deal will also give uBUCK customers access to discounted top-tier brand gift cards that can be purchased through the uBUCK app.
uBUCK offers a payment alternative for the unbanked and underbanked community. 32.6 million Americans and close to 6 million Canadians fall in this category. uBUCK is planning on rolling its service out to Southeast Asia, with only 47% of the population having a bank account and in the Philippines where it has 77% of the population unbanked according to a recent survey by BSP.
“uBUCK is committed to serving the unbanked and underbanked community in starting with North America, said uBUCK president and CEO James Youn. “uBUCK Tech is democratizing the financial system by having the uBUCK pin vouchers available at your local convenience store in addition to buying it from the uBUCK App directly.”
Customers will be able to purchase uBUCK pin vouchers with cash, credit or debit cards. uBUCK cash can be sent anywhere in the world within the uBUCK platform with no transfer fees. The receiver of those uBUCK cash tokens can be used to load a debit card and spend it just as they would any credit card or make a withdrawal at any ATM around the world.
“PreWay looks to market this product to its client base of convenience stores and other resellers as a product that will enhance door swings for the convenience store and having them on the platform serves the public with an option not currently being addressed by the competition,”
said Rodger Kean, VP Sales & Marketing at PreWay Prepaid.
