Greyhound taps Paysafe to offer cash payments for online bookings
By Gloria Methri
Greyhound Lines, Inc., the provider of long-distance bus transportation in the U.S., has partnered with Paysafe to roll out online cash services. Greyhound customers can now use Paysafe’s eCash solution Paysafecash to make safe and secure cash payments when booking a trip online.
To purchase an online ticket with cash, Greyhound customers can select ‘cash’ as the payment method at checkout. This generates a barcode that can be paid at one of more than 70,000 participating convenience stores, pharmacies, or dollar stores that offer Paysafecash payment services. The customer simply presents the barcode at the cash register to complete the purchase.
Dennis Köhler, Global Head of Payment & Fraud of FlixBus, which acquired Greyhound Lines, Inc., in 2021, commented, “Being able to pay cash for tickets for both our brands – Greyhound and FlixBus – is vital for our customers and we are committed to providing this solution for online bookings as well. We chose to partner with Paysafe because of its innovative approach to enabling cash payments for consumers and its extensive network of payment points throughout the U.S., using popular stores that are in easy reach for our customers.”
Megan Oxman, who leads Digital Wallets at Paysafe, added, “Our eCash solution Paysafecash caters to a considerable portion of Americans who prefer to use cash and allows them to make online transactions. With the world becoming ever more digital, we believe it’s vital to open up eCommerce and online financial transactions for cash-reliant customers, and our solutions are an extremely effective way to do this.”
