Mobile Payments

Crunchfish provides local two-way interaction solutions for mobile payments. 

We work with mobile payment services, POS terminal suppliers and merchants to help facilitate frictionless mobile payments in any physical environment.

Our Offering

Proxilink

Proxilink is a software technology that provides merchants with a smarter, more reliable mobile payment solution. Proxilink creates a local, bi-directional link between the customer’s mobile payment app and merchant when the customer comes within a defined proximity to the Point of Sales terminal.

Proxilink customers: We work with mobile payment service providers, POS terminal suppliers and merchants to help facilitate frictionless mobile payments in any physical environment.

Uninterrupted Transactions: This two-way local connection enables seamless mobile payments in a physical environment that will always work in the exact moment of transaction.

Identify your customers earlier: Our Proxilink technology also allows merchants to identify customers before the payment phase, which helps merchants to increase cross selling opportunities, automate usage of customer loyalty programs and discount coupons, provide targeted exclusive deals, enable relevant in-store marketing, mobile ordering, pre-payment, and more.

Proxilink Offline

Our Offline solution enables frictionless mobile payments that always work in the moment of payment, even if one or both parties are completely disconnected from the payment service.  

Emerging economies – Unreliable Connection: Offline solves one of the biggest challenges for digital payments in developing countries, an evolving IT infrastructure with a sometimes spotty and unreliable connection for both consumers and merchants.

Offline facilitates payments through a two-way, local software link between the payer and payee, which means that the payment will work even if the customer and/or merchant lack online connectivity to the payment service. 

Traveling payments: Crunchfish’s Offline payments solution is also useful in developed markets for service industries, like in taxi cabs or for delivery personnel, who both find themselves in situations with little-to-no connectivity. 

e-Currency: Many of the world’s nations are studying possibilities to guarantee their own national e-currencies. Our Offline solution would allow for Central Banks to provide value-based e-currencies that replicate cash in the sense that the payment method functions in a complete internet and energy blackout as well as allowing for anonymity.

Blippit

Blippit is a plug-n-play app terminal that connects to Android and Windows cash registers in order to enable mobile payment functionality.

With Blippit, a transaction is initiated through a Blipp, when the customer places their mobile phone a couple centimeters away from the Blippit app terminal. The terminal supports both account to account payments as well as mobile wallets. 

Blippit transactions make for a more seamless transaction than with QR codes and a cleaner transaction than with traditional card terminals because customers authorise payments on their own mobile phones, not by punching in a code on a terminal. 

The app terminal enables the same type of customer identification advantages as Proxilink and also supports Offline capability.

Technology

Crunchfish’s mobile proximity technology includes an app terminal and related app, terminal and app server software. Our SDK (software development kit) can be integrated in any mobile iOS or Android application and is provided in order for app developers to enable the mobile payment service in their apps. Bluetooth is the primary communication medium in the solution since we believe that the interactive experience should be the same regardless of whether you use an Android or Apple device.

A total mobile payment and coupon management solution including Crunchfish’s hardware and software technologies is provided to the market by Blippit AB. Blippit serves as a link between consumers and retail payment services without the retailer having to own its own apps, payment processors or point of sale systems.
