Glance Pay Launches Successfully in the United States

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 28, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Glance Technologies Inc. (CSE:GET.CN) (OTCQB:GLNNF) (FKT:GJT) is pleased to announce that Glance Pay, the mobile payments solution that makes payments and rewards simpler and more secure for merchants and users across Canada, has gone live in the United States.

Glance Pay users in the U.S. now enjoy fully operational USD mobile payments and customer support when visiting any one of our growing list of partner businesses there.  Glance Pay currently has 14 signed locations across California, with merchants ranging from restaurants and food trucks, to salons and service providers.  A number of those locations have been launched this week and are more planned soon.

With the U.S. launch, Glance Pay is entering a mobile payments marketplace which, according to market research giant Forrester, is projected to see mobile payment volumes reach $282 billion by the year 2021, tripling in size over 2016. Forrester’s research found that U.S. mobile payment volumes have been growing at a compound annual rate of 20 per cent each year.1

“The U.S. is one of the largest marketplaces in the world and we are thrilled to now be live there,” says Desmond Griffin, CEO of Glance. “We know the efficiency and customer retention our technology can bring to all kinds of businesses, and we are focused on putting that value in as many hands as possible.”

The Glance Pay mobile payments platform has quickly become a leading choice for merchants in restaurants, retail and more, thanks to its compelling competitive advantages in customer service and satisfaction, and to the efficiency, insights and marketing tools it offers business owners. With more than 350 signed locations across Canada and the United States, Glance Pay is a high-security platform offering exclusive deals and rewards for users, while rewarding merchants with faster, more flexible transactions, and a range of new tools and advantages.
