NewTech Friday: Paysign – first-class payment services 11 June 2021

Mark Newcomer, CEO at Paysign, talks with Efma’s Boris Plantier about the innovations his company continually brings to the payments ecosystem. 
What led to the creation of Paysign?

Paysign was founded 20 years ago as a payment solutions company focusing on both the development of a secure payment gateway and associated consumer-facing hardware device which utilized encryption technology to facilitate PIN debit transactions over the internet. Our proprietary transaction processing solutions were provided through the issuance of prepaid debit cards, initially aimed at a variety of niche markets. We found our sweet spot quickly thereafter in the pharmaceutical marketing space – more specifically in the copay assistance arena – and focused our attention on providing additional services to the healthcare industry, which led us to source plasma collection compensation payments in 2011. Since then, we have grown this business vertical to become a market share leader and our solution is now found in over 35% of the source plasma collection centers in the U.S.

As we expand our market focus to other industries and develop solutions for new verticals, we stay true to our core mission of delivering programs, solutions, and processing that allow businesses to reduce their costs, streamline operations, and increase their revenue. We strive every day to bring new efficiencies to the payments landscape to better serve our clients.
