Security Enhancement Moves by Target Corp. to Include Chip and PIN Technology Lauded by Global Payout
Global Payout Launches Major Initiatives As Program Manager of Chip and PIN Technology
Revolutionary Financial Services Platform Aims to Facilitate Access to 2.5 Billion Under-banked Adults
SAN DIEGO, April 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Payout, Inc. (OTC Pink: GOHE), the leading new Program Manager of B2B custom and conventional electronic payment solutions, announced today that it supports Target Corp.'s accelerated national transition to Chip and PIN technology and installation of new Chip-and-PIN payment terminals in all 1,797 United States (US) stores by September of this year. The move by one of our nation's largest retailers is well ahead of the October 2015 EMV Europay MasterCard and VISA (EMV) "liability shift" mandate imposed by most major card services companies, and clearly demonstrates the major push to eliminate or deter cyber-attacks and fraud activity here in the US. The EMV technology implementation is a move to catch up with international counterparts who already utilize the technology, and have seen a reduction in fraud statistics. Concurrently, Global Payout also announced its initiatives to launch Chip and PIN, debit card technology through its proprietary MoneyTrac™ Consolidated Payment Gateway (CPG) payments platform, its desire to immediately develop Chip and Pin cards not only in Europe, but also worldwide. Efforts are already underway.
The MoneyTrac™ Consolidated Payment Gateway is emerging as the newest, leading mass payments platform capable of real time account access, cash management and funds disbursement on a global basis. The CPG incorporates a wide range of financial services capability and geographic accessibility while providing secure, efficient and cost effective money transfers to any Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) compliant country for business accountholders and their individual subaccount holders and cardholders. Through the MoneyTrac™ CPG, disbursements can be made to hundreds of cardholders or accountholders, or hundreds of thousands, in a single, simple effort. By providing mass payment services, payroll capabilities, ACH, prepaid instant issue debit cards, and easy to use money transfer and remittance and other money transfer capabilities, Global Payout is able to provide valuable access to financial services to a considerable percentage of the 2.5 billion unbanked and under-banked adults in the world (according to the World Bank) at a considerably lower cost than direct mail or traditional bank transfer methods.
Global Payout is currently in the midst of CPG and prepaid debit card program launches and initiatives in China, Malaysia, Canada, Germany, England, The United States, Brazil and other countries in South America, the SEPA (Single Euro Payments Area) within the European Union (EU), as well as the Philippines. Others will be announced soon.
