Logic dictates that the medium on which commerce is conducted and the speed at which it is conducted must have corresponding mediums and speeds for Payments which arise as a consequence of this commerce.
The volume of e-commerce conducted over the Internet is growing exponentially and to date, aside from credit cards, there is no payment system to support this. While credit cards are useful to effect payments resulting from e-commerce, they are largely restricted to payments between consumers and established merchants (C-To-B Payments). In addition to the substantial capital outlays required to establish a credit card infrastructure, credit risk factors and chargebacks contribute to adding onto transaction costs. PAY is a revolutionary End-To-End payment system which allows C-To-B, B-To-B or C-To-C payments between parties across international boundaries in minutes.
