“Our company was built on the premise that accepting charge cards need not cripple merchants with high fees and that using charge cards need not saddle consumers with crippling debt,” said Radpay’s co-founder and CEO, Dana Love, PhD. “Since our founding in 2018, we have led the pack in innovating on behalf of e-commerce merchants. This additional capital, along with our extensive industry and customer partnerships, sets us on a course that will bring transparency, innovation, and value to the stagnant payment processing industry.”
Proceeds from the capital raised will be used to drive the next stage of the company’s growth, which will include first commercialization of the company’s technology, expansion of Radpay’s marketing to e-commerce and retail merchants, and further development of Radpay’s portfolio of novel inventions in blockchain, payments, and digital wallets.
Radpay’s co-founder and CTO Jared Stauffer commented that “realizing immediate, tangible value is Radpay’s goal for our first customers, who begin testing our service in January. This funding gives us the runway to deliver new innovation to the payment industry.”
