BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 22, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- FlexShopper, Inc. (Nasdaq:FPAY) (“FlexShopper” or the “Company”), a leading national online lease-to-own (“LTO”) retailer and LTO payment solution provider, today announced that CEO Brad Bernstein and CFO Russ Heiser are attending the Money 20/20 USA Conference in Las Vegas, NV, which takes place from October 21st through October 24th.  FlexShopper is an exhibitor and sponsor at the event, which states its mission as “creating a simpler, fairer, faster and more inclusive financial system for individuals, businesses, and society as a whole.”  More information on the conference can be found at https://us.money2020.com/overview.

Brad Bernstein, CEO, stated, “The Money 20/20 Conference is a great opportunity for FlexShopper to showcase its latest innovations to some of the top payments and financial services executives in the retail sector. The spirit of the event is one of innovation and market disruption, which fits very well with our stated goal of revolutionizing the rent-to-own industry, as well as traditional retail, through our virtual platform.  We believe that the recent launch in a national tire retailer’s 726 stores of our integrationless, point of sale program that utilizes our mobile application and requires no point of sale integration validates our virtual model. This, combined with our recently patented lease-to-own payment system, provides retailers easy and powerful ways to increase sales with non-prime credit consumers who want to shop with them.”
