Challenge:Zipwhip’s mission is to text-enable every business in North America with Zipwhip software. When they first approached us,they were looking to expand their offering and truly offer a full-service suite of texting products.
Solution:In August 2020, Zipwhip and Authvia partnered to share text based payments with Zipwhip clients. TXT2PAY for Zipwhip, powered by Authvia, allows businesses to use any mobile or desktop device to receive credit and debit card payments without the need for a terminal or point-of-sale system, and allows customers to provide those payments without leaving their texting app. Consumers are able to make payments by simply texting back a four digit code in response to payment requests, drastically reducing the time and effort required to pay. Additionally, TXT2PAY allows consumers to store multiple debit and credit cards within the Authvia wallet, adding flexibility and convenience to future purchases. Authvia’s industry-leading security measures also shield Zipwhip customers and consumers from PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) compliance risk, by ensuring sensitive card and account data is completely protected.
