MEXICO CITY, MEXICO, Dec. 20, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today QPAGOS (OTCQB: QPAG) announced an agreement with AQUI TE PRESTO DE MEXICO, SRL de CV (ATP), a growing Mexican micro lender (small loan company), to deploy QPAGOS self-service kiosks in ATP’s growing branch network.
ATP, with over 24 branches, just deployed the first 3 of a potential 24 QPAGOS kiosks. ATP customers can now make their weekly loan amortizations, as well as payments to over 150 service providers through these kiosks. Topping up their mobile phones, paying their electric, water, gas and telephone bills, as well as paying for state and municipal services, is now much more convenient.
“We believe QPAGOS self-service solutions are ideal to help us grow our customer base, as well as expand our geographic reach for the benefit of our current and future customers,” said Ed Hernandez, Director General of ATP.
Added Gastón Pereira, CEO and President of QPAGOS: “ATP is a leader in the adoption of technology to improve its range of services and the satisfaction of their customers. Adding ATP payments to QPAGOS platform will soon allow ATP to expand their collections footprint through the more than 700 kiosks serviced by QPAGOS across the country. We look forward supporting ATP as it expands into several Mexican states.”
ATP is a Baja California, Mexico-based emerging non-bank financial entity that offers financial services to low income unbanked consumers.
Based in the US, QPAGOS offers cutting edge digital payment services for consumers and service providers in Mexico, where 60% of the adult population does not have a bank account and 95% of consumer purchases are made in cash. It operates a network of self-service kiosks and applications offering an alternative payment that is more convenient for consumers and offers a more efficient billing platform for service providers.
