BLUE BELL, Pa., July 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — REGO Payment Architectures, Inc. (OTCQB: RPMT) today announced it has secured a significant round of funding to bring the total to $9.3 million to date in Series C funding led by SKB Capital. The funding will allow REGO to launch its secure mobile banking solution to families in the U.S. and the European Union later this year.
“Investors renewed their support for the REGO Digital Wallet, in light of robust demand for digital mobile wallets, particularly with cybersecurity and personal identity management protections. The closing of this strategic growth capital resolves the essential missing piece to move the REGO Digital Wallet into a position to begin to engage customers with its newly launched service in 2020,” said Suzanne E. Kecmer, founder, SKB Capital, and financial advisor for REGO.
REGO’s Digital Wallet is an unprecedented family-focused financial solution. It allows children to shop from parent-approved retailers, deliver peer-to-peer payments, teaches financial literacy, all while keeping identities secure. It has patented attribution and identity management methods, patented real-time access and data control, and independent verification, validation, and auditing techniques, among other core capabilities.
REGO’s Digital Wallet received the GDPRkids™ Trustmark from PRIVO in early 2020 demonstrating that REGO meets the requirements of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as well as COPPA Safe Harbor certification with PRIVO, which is a Federal Trade Commission approved designation certifying that REGO is protecting children as they make online purchases.
“REGO is now in a position to finalize systems integration, kick-off our pilot program, as well as initiate a data business,” notes Scott McPherson, chief financial officer, REGO.
“With more children consuming and purchasing digital content and having online purchases shipped to their homes, ensuring that minors have a secure banking experience and protecting their personally identifiable information is more important than ever,” added Kecmer. “As the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically shifted how people work, travel, and shop, having a safe, touchless solution that can be used anywhere is critical to keeping children and families safe.”
REGO’s Digital Wallet is available for partnering institutions. The consumer version of REGO Digital Wallet has an anticipated release in 2020. Learn more at regopayments.com.
