Data is a big buzzword in the fintech industry as it empowers partners to create tailored experiences that resonate with customers and help optimize metrics such as retention and engagement and from there on, revenue. PayNearMe can of course use these solutions across a number of verticals and businesses, with iGaming and sports betting definitely an important part of the company’s strategy for growth and expansion.

PayNearMe CEO Danny Shader said that the company has been working with bigger clients and that growth has been steady. The new investment would help ensure that the company has the additional resources to offer the quality product that its partners have come to expect.

There is more demand for innovative and frictionless payments, Shader explained, as PayNearMe continues to explore new business avenues, industries, and verticals. PayNearMe has become a comprehensive solution for payment types, including Google Pay, Apple Pay, Venmo, ACH, and so many others.
