Through the partnership, any safeTstep slip-resistant shoe ordered on Payless.com can now be paid for at any of the PayNearMe network retailers, including trusted brands such as 7-Eleven® and Family Dollar®.
"The new PayNearMe partnership with Payless will help our safeTstep business customers and their associates maintain a culture of safety," said Matt Lemke, Director, safeTstep, "Whether a new associate is looking to arrive at work in the proper footwear for their first day on the job, or a long-time associate is purchasing his tenth pair of slip-resistant shoes, we're excited to continually add value to our customers."
To make a cash payment, customers simply select the "Pay with CASH" option at checkout on Payless.com to obtain a PayNearMe payment code. The code and cash payment are then presented to the clerk at any PayNearMe payment location. The transaction takes less than a minute and payment is posted within fifteen minutes to an hour.
