SurgePays™ Portal is a multi-purpose software interface for convenience stores, bodegas and other corner merchants providing goods and services to the underbanked community. The merchant or clerk is able to use the portal – similar to a website – with image driven navigation to add wireless minutes for any carrier, pay bills and also load debit cards etc. What makes SurgePays™ unique is that it also offers the merchant access to order wholesale goods through the portal with one touch ease.
The traditional distribution model has changed….companies can no longer afford to send salespeople pulling doors to promote their individual products. This keeps a variety of new and profitable products out of the reach of corner stores while locking manufacturers and distributors to regional sales only. SurgePays™ is essentially an e-commerce storefront that ENABLES manufacturers and distribution companies to have access to a nationwide network of merchants while EMPOWERING these stores to purchase lower cost goods and services. SurgePays™ cuts out the middle man and therefore can pass along discounts which further makes SurgePays™ a significant profit partner for both the Manufacturer/Distributor and the Merchant.
The goal of the SurgePays™ Portal is to provide every Fintech and Telecom product available to convenience stores, corner markets, bodegas, and supermarkets while procuring other consumable products commonly sold in these same stores. From the Telecom and FinTech products such as SurgePhone Androids, SurgePhone Wireless Service, Wireless Top-ups, Bill Payments, Pinless Long distance, and SurgePays™ Visa® Prepaid Card to supplying partner company’s consumables such as snacks, CBD oils, dry foods, frozen foods, energy products, t-shirts, automotive parts and many more goods you will see next time you are in a convenience store and look around.
