Advanced Capabilities/New Revenue
NC3 allows new merchants who never thought of themselves as charge merchants, such as utility providers, to use NC3 to collect their fees. Organizations that don’t want to incur the fees, such as universities, can use NC3 and add the fee to the consumer’s charge. Consumers need not pay with credit, NC3 provides for secure access to consumer-defined checking, savings, MMA or other accounts capable of ACH capability.
New lines of revenue from Person-to-Person-Payments and Person-To-Merchant (passive merchants where the consumer and merchant are not together either physically or electronically including P2M, P2Mu, P2N). See Examples.
It is easier to add new merchants as they require only a smart phone with a camera and software and require no additional hardware.
New Functionality Attracts New Consumers and Benefits Merchants
Low Cost – High Reward
NC3 works mostly in the existing infrastructure so implementation cost for providers is low. There is high development leverage, literally create once, use for every bank with auto-customization. There is more.
