Multi award winning Cardstream® has today announced its partnership with Sticky™, a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that offers a unique and engaging panoply of branded sticker payment solutions – ‘Stickies’. Sticky’s™ goal is to disrupt the ageing cardholder present system by shifting it to 100% e-commerce, significantly reducing the cost of card acceptance for millions of businesses around the globe.
As James Garner, CEO of Sticky™ explains “The goal of Sticky™ is to improve the consumer experience tenfold, making every physical transaction a digital one. When you see a Sticky™, simply hold your phone over it, then tap and pay within a couple of seconds. Sticky™ is how businesses of all sizes solve problems in physical spaces.”
After raising venture capital during the UK’s third lockdown, Sticky™ found traction quickly in many verticals – from retail and hospitality through to tourism, training, fitness and smaller startup businesses.
Commenting on the partnership, Jack Mangnall, Cardstream’s® Head of Partner Growth, adds “Cardstream is keen to see how Sticky can leverage our Open®Payment Network to its fullest. Sticky’s innovative consumer-centric solution overcomes many obstacles, enabling our Partners to provide a unique digital solution to their merchant portfolio”.
On partnering with Cardstream®, James adds, “one thing that every business has in common is the need to take payments, and we saw Cardstream as a capable and ambitious partner in accessing the global payments landscape. Cardstream’s OPN® has already allowed us to bring the world’s largest Independent Sales Organisations onboard as well as giving us immediate connectivity to the world’s most well-known acquirers. That’s a major fast-track entry”.
Jack concludes, “Cardstream Connecting Commerce is making digital payments accessible to all through our Open®Payment Network. Sticky enables merchants of all sizes and verticals to deliver an in-person touchless payment journey to consumers. Cardstream and Sticky are a natural collegial combination, delivering digital payment solutions globally”.
From global enterprise to thousands of dreamers and makers, they’re all using Sticky™ to solve problems in physical spaces. Sticky’s™ goal is to make every physical transaction truly digital. Whether you want to let people order food and drink in a couple of seconds; turn anything into a point-of-sale; gamify towns and cities; transform fitness; or multiply the number of disabled people in work, the only limit is your imagination. The world is building the future on Sticky™.
