Jumio, a secretive online-payments startup created by Jajah founder Daniel Mattes, is finally ready for its close-up. And it’s a fitting metaphor, because Jumio is enabling online credit card payments made by scanning a card with a computer webcam.
AisleBuyer, a Boston start-up, is introducing a new photo card capture technology in the coming months that allows merchants and small businesses to process a payment just by taking a picture of the front of credit or debit card with a smartphone.
AisleBuyer lets users purchase a product in-store, allowing them to walk out with their item instead of standing in a check-out line. The app brings some of the ease of use of online shopping like quick checkouts and information with tactile, hands-on benefits of in-store shopping.
