Sezzle and Sensepass bring tap-to-pay and buy-now-pay-later together
By Edlyn Cardoza
Sezzle, a leader in the digital payments industry, announced an exciting partnership with Sensepass, an all-in-one solution used by retailers to offer all digital payments wallets by tap or scan without purchasing hardware.
Dubbed the ‘Wallet of Wallets,’ Sensepass is one centralised hub that accepts any digital payment the shopper chooses—from credit and debit cards to platforms like Venmo and Coinbase, and now, Sezzle’s payment offering. Sensepass already supports retailers, college bookstores, and the hospitality industry; clients include fashion retailer Kith, Ramsey Outdoor, Town Shop, Laline, and numerous restaurants.
“Even with today’s tech, it’s a game of chance for shoppers when they reach the register––unsure of which payment methods the retailer will accept. Sensepass tears the wall down between digital payments and wide-spread accessibility,” said Moty Arcuschin, CEO of Sensepass.
Sezzle’s financing solution skyrocketed in adoption throughout COVID-19. According to studies, the pandemic accelerated the digitisation of payments by an unprecedented amount––and while the desire for brick-and-mortar retail stayed intact, shoppers also came to prefer contactless options to protect their health.
With this partnership, Sezzle users can shop by tapping their phone on any Sensepass-enabled device and choosing Sezzle. Sensepass allows Sezzle in-store merchants to bypass Sezzle’s virtual card integration to reach shoppers, and users can transact with the merchant directly from their Sezzle account.
“Besides safety, there are different social, financial, and convenience factors that contribute to people’s payment preferences, and Sezzle’s vision is to leave the choice to the shopper. With its integration with Sensepass, Sezzle’s digital payment platform becomes one more accessible option for in-store shoppers,” said Charlie Youakim, Sezzle’s CEO.
“Our goal at Sensepass is to offer retailers the freedom and flexibility to offer all payment methods; an integration with Sezzle brings us one step closer to this,” added Arcuschin.
