eBillme Launches eCommerce Option

There are 28 million Americans without a bank account and another 44 million Americans considered "underbanked" according to the FDIC. To take advantage of the opportunity to help these consumers shop online, eBillme, the online payment option that already enables consumers and small businesses to use online banking to pay securely with cash, has introduced eBillme Walk-In, a new way for consumers to shop online and pay with cash, without having a credit card or even a bank account.

The company has partnered with providers including MoneyGram International to assemble the largest network of U.S. based walk-in locations.

Says Marwan Forzley, President and CEO of eBillme, "We want every consumer to be able to pay securely with cash and benefit from the eBillme platform, which includes a rewards program and buyer protection features giving consumers all the perks of credit cards without getting into debt or incurring extra fees. For merchants, eBillme Walk-In offers an opportunity to reach a new consumer market and increase sales."

Upon selecting eBillme Walk-In, online shoppers will be sent an eBill which can now be paid using online banking or by presenting the eBill to a participating location. A locator is available to show consumers the nearest walk-in location based on their address. Consumers can simply take their printed eBill to one of the over 75,000 walk-in locations across the US to make payment, including MoneyGram`s nearly 40,000 agent locations.

The company claims over 800 online merchants now accept eBillme.
