8,000 more reasons why PayNearMe wins over any walk-up bill payment and money orders

using PayNearme electronic cash transaction network

At PayNearMe, we are committed to bringing cash consumers into the digital age by making remote cash payments as convenient and easy as electronic transactions via ACH and credit cards.

As companies like Apple have demonstrated, it often takes deep technology to deliver a great and simple user experience. PayNearMe’s sophisticated and flexible technology platform enables merchants, government agencies and other payees to deliver the best possible user-experience so consumers can complete their payments quickly and easily and get on with their more important (or fun) activities.

Prior to today, however, we have had one significant limitation: footprint.  Because our retail partners did not cover the entire country, some regional and nationwide payees had to chose between PayNearMe’s great experience for their customers and antiquated options with more payment locations.

Beginning today, that trade-off is a thing of the past.  We are proud to announce that Family Dollar, the nation’s leading dollar and variety-store chain with over 8,000 locations in 46 states, has joined the PayNearMe network. With this addition of Family Dollar, consumers can complete PayNearMe transactions at more than 17,000 locations across the country.

Family Dollar practically doubles our retail footprint and provides nearly ubiquitous coverage for consumers.  Now, we think our footprint is hard to beat.  Why? Because most merchants and government agencies would prefer to send their consumers to a well-lit, trusted retailer like 7-Eleven or Family Dollar than, say, to a liquor store that offers traditional walk-up payments.

With the addition of Family Dollar, PayNearMe has become the no-compromises cash payment network: the best user experience, the best retail footprint, and the best integration for easy, error- and fraud-free cash transactions at scale.

    Hi Danny – I may not be in contact with the appropriate people at PayNearMe in my effort to secure your services for my website. I’ve been assured the site is in “Compliance” review. This has been ongoing since 2/13/14 via my email/phone follow-ups. I’m raising my hand for attention/assistance/acceptance/rejectance/disposition – Thanks

  • Kelvin Tse Kelvin says:

    David, sorry to hear you have been having trouble signing up with PayNearMe. I have just sent you an email to see what we can do to get you started.

    Copy of email I sent to Aiseesoft:
    I attempted to purchase your DVD Converter Suite Platinum online through your website. First I tried to use my debit card. It was rejected twice. I have only had that problem using my card for an online purchase once before, and I found that company was outside the U.S.A., and my debit card is not good outside the U.S.A. I figured maybe the same was happening with this purchase. When the debit card failed, I was offered other options. One of them was “Pay Near Me” which offered me the option of paying at a Local Family Dollar store. That sounded good, so I clicked through that option and printed out some material to take to the Family Dollar store. I went to the two different stores in my town (and both were listed on my printout). The clerks at both stores told me there were unaware of any such program and could not help me. One clerk did try to call someone for advice, but they were not answering. Another clerk said they did not want to try scanning the barcode I had in the printout because they did not want to help someone pull a scam. I do not mean to say the clerks were rude. They are just minimum wage workers who do not want to get in trouble.

    I went home and called the help number shown on my printout (Avangate at 888-714-0004) and told them my problem. I was told I could take my printout to another business in town (Ace Cash Express). I called Ace and they had actually heard of Pay Near Me. Wow! I told them what I had, a printout with a barcode they were supposed to scan, and I was told they do not have any way to scan a bar code. They need a “Token number.” I gave the lady the 7-digit number that appeared just above the barcode on my printout. She did something with it on her computer and told me that number did not work for her. She suggested I try placing a new order and say I want to pay at Ace Cash Express. Since I have already spent more time on this than on any other software purchase in my life (and I go back to the Commodore 64), I think I am just going to give up now, but I wanted you to know that this particular purchase option does not seem to work very well.

    Start-up interested in PayNearMe Pro. We have contacted PayNearMe several times to no avail. CashAirfare plans to go live in approx 3 months, thanks for the help.

  • Kelvin Tse Kelvin Tse says:

    Herman, apologies for missing your inquiry. Someone will be following up with you directly via email.

  • Herman says:

    Just want you to know that following my request for help here PayNearMe has been very receptive, thanks.

  • CHERIE says:

    I can not find where to sign up for paynearme.com.how do I get a pay near me card? I love this new idea of being able to pay bills closer to home but is there fee every month or every transactionbecause if so a stamp is still the cheapest way to go for low income people

  • Kelvin Tse Kelvin Tse says:

    Cherie, I’m glad you like our idea! Currently, to use PayNearMe, the business that you would like to pay (property manager, utility company, etc.) would have to sign up with PayNearMe first. Then, they would be able to offer the PayNearMe option to you.

    If you let us know which bills you would like to pay, we’d be happy to reach out to those companies and see if we can get them to offer PayNearMe to customers like yourself.
