Sionic’s Pay-by-Bank Service Enables Consumers to Instantly Load Funds to Merchant Gift Cards

Sionic, a leading provider of omni-commerce, faster digital payments solutions, announced a strategic agreement with iVertical Payment Network (iVPN), a proprietary payments platform, to provide its Pay-by-Bank faster payments service to reinvent the gift card industry by enabling consumers to load digital cash from their checking accounts to merchant gift cards.

“By eliminating the funding risk, the Sionic platform is a game changer for us to create a relationship with merchants and customers, their friends and family, and to drive in-store traffic,” said Joe Randazza, CEO of iVertical Payment Network. Sionic enables iVPN to provide a merchant service where their current gift card vendor stops. Because we have the information, the iVPN gift card program reminds gift receivers that they have money to spend with the merchant. Providing a merchant with the information they own for long-term data mining campaigns disrupts the outdated platforms and business models used by the current dominant gift card vendors while offering a substantially lower cost. We’ve been looking for a faster, less expensive, and more secure way for consumers to load funds to gift cards. Sionic’s Pay-by-Bank service checks all the boxes for us.”

Sionic is leveraging U.S. bank-to-bank payment rails and a trusted payer-payee security model to safely and immediately move funds from buyers to sellers. The service bypasses expensive credit card interchange fees allowing sellers to increase their profit on every transaction.

“We’re thrilled that iVPN chose Sionic to underpin its new, forward-looking gift card program,” said Ronald Herman, CEO of Sionic. “Retailers can reduce expensive credit card fees, as well as significantly reduce the overall cost of operating a gift card program through iVPN’s breakthrough solution.”

Sionic’s Pay-By-Bank is the industry’s first real-time payments service enabling bank-to-bank digital cash deposits at the point-of-sale in the US market. This comes at a time when merchants are responding to consumer demand by allowing more widespread digital payment options. In addition to receiving funds instantly, merchants reduce costs on average 2% over expensive card swipe fees.
