Glance Pay is a streamlined payment system that revolutionizes how smartphone users choose where to shop, order goods and services, make payments, access digital receipts, redeem digital deals, earn great rewards & interact with merchants. Glance offers targeted in-app marketing, geo-targeted digital coupons, customer feedback, in-merchant messaging and custom rewards programs. The Glance Pay mobile payment system consists of proprietary technology, which includes user apps available for free downloads in iOS (Apple) and Android formats, merchant manager apps, a large-scale technology hosting environment with sophisticated anti-fraud technology and lightning-fast payment processing. Glance has also recently purchased a blockchain solution and is working on a rewards-based cryptocurrency, the whitepaper for which can be found on the company’s website.
Glance is developing a rewards-based cryptocurrency built on blockchain technology, called Glance Coin. The Whitepaper outlining the company’s plans for Glance Coin can be found online at glancecoin.io. This coming development will empower Glance-partnered merchants to reward, incentivize and provide deals to their customers with a rewards crypto-token through Glance’s platform. Glance intends for the platform to enhance customer loyalty through a rewards token, which Glance users will be able to either spend promptly or accumulate for larger rewards within the broader Glance marketplace. This, combined with the merchant-empowering Glance PayMe App, is expected to become a powerful addition to Glance’s mobile payments ecosystem.
