Kuapay Teams Up With The Bean for Mobile Payments
A lean machine, that’s the Bean. With three coffee shops in the East Village, the local chain offers a more unique experience than the corporate alternative. Like featuring artwork from local creatives, the tiled creations of Mosaic Man, or…the ability to pay without reaching for your wallet.
Hot on the heels of securing $4 million in venture capital, SoCal mobile payments system Kuapay enlisted the Bean as its flagship New York City client. The service is reportedly enjoying “considerable success” with other merchants in its native Santa Monica. Kuapay is a mobile wallet that allows you to register your credit/debit cards, and flash a QR during register checkout. Customer rewards and benefits are automatically updated after each transaction. For the next ten days, customers who sign up will receive special mid-day promotions.
In a public statement, Bean co-owner Ike Escava noted:
Given all the options on the market, I had to go with a solution that offered exceptional value to my customers, and Kuapay does.
The future has arrived here in the East Village, but definitely not for the paranoid…
