RUSH, the loyalty and e-commerce solutions provider under Globe’s 917Ventures, is waiving transaction fees for small and medium enterprises (SMEs) to help keep their businesses afloat following renewed lockdowns in the country.
In line with the company’s promise to provide companies with simplified and accessible digital solutions, new customers who will sign with RUSH by Aug. 31 will be included in Paymongo’s Accelerator Program. They will be eligible for two months of zero-transaction fees across all payment channels of PayMongo.
“Partnering with top-caliber names in their respective industries provides more value to merchants powered by RUSH,” said Jeferson Cruz, chief commercial officer at RUSH. “We are delighted to have PayMongo onboard, all together sharing the same vision of supporting SMEs with the assistance that they need to be able to operate despite the challenges brought by the global health crisis.”

The company’s standard, easy-to-integrate PayMongo API and e-commerce plugins lower integration time. With PayMongo integrated into RUSH, payment acceptance and disbursement to stores can be done seamlessly.
