Pockyt, an alternative payments platform, announced that it has significantly expanded its global presence and now supports 14 major digital wallets, including PayPal, Alipay, Venmo, WeChat Pay, UnionPay, and Klarna, among others. Pockyt enables merchants and businesses to conduct rapid and contactless cross border QR-code payments, providing access to new customers around the world. 

“By removing payment friction for cross-border payments, Pockyt allows businesses for the first time ever, to deeply connect with the high value, untapped global customer base of more than 2 billion people who engage digitally with brands by providing them with an easy, seamless way to make payments and receive funds,” said Mason Lin, CEO and Founder of Pockyt.

Pockyt’s payments solution allows merchants to accept all major global wallets, including PayPal, Venmo and Alipay. Key features include:

  • Seamless Integration: With one simple integration to the retailer’s Point-of-Sale and/or eCommerce platform, Pockyt removes friction from the checkout process by offering customers the option to pay with 14 of the world's leading QR-based digital wallets. The integration bypasses a retailer's existing payment infrastructure, leveraging their existing bar code scanner, not impacting their PCI certification and not requiring any additional hardware, software or peripherals.
  • Global Solution: Major digital wallets are supported, enabling consumers to shop globally and pay locally with many additional wallets coming soon.  
  • Access and Connection: Pockyt’s digital checkout experience alleviates churn and increases retention enabling brands to engage with their customers post-checkout.

Pockyt will be demonstrating its payments solution at Booth #18 in the NRF Innovation Lab on Level 1 of the Jacob Javits Center in New York City from January 16-18, 2022. NRF’s Innovation Lab showcases the latest applications in artificial intelligence, augmented reality, machine learning, facial recognition, robotics and more. This immersive exhibit tracks cutting-edge developments in retail’s tech transformation.

In addition, on Tuesday, January 18 at 12:00 p.m. ET during NRF, Pockyt CEO Mason Lin will be participating in a Featured Session along with Klarna, Foot Locker, Inc., and XRC Labs titled “Beyond Contactless: Are Flexible Payments the New Marketing Play?” More details and location can be found here.
