We believe that every single POS will soon be transmitting the purchase screen directly to the phone through ultrasonic sound to enable a remote, phone-based payment engagement by the shopper. We expect that Soundpays will emerge as a new standard in touchless, contactless payment. One that will be as universal and effective as QR Code payment currently is in China.
Similarly, we expect that every single screen or sign, whether in or out-of-home, will be perpetually transmitting supplementary information (ultrasonically) which can be downloaded and instantly acted upon, by any phone, in any location, at any time.
Soundpays™ Inc. was founded in 2015 and is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. We have raised US$2.5M to date. Our core technology is patented in the United States and have the same patent pending in China, Japan, Canada and Europe. We have also recently filed a provisional patent for a new technology in the US.
Our technology has been commercially proven in dozens of different sites and use cases. We are at an early revenue stage with several key, domestic and international customers.
We are a growing, dynamic and enthusiastic team dedicated to creating new frictionless engagement and commerce channels that will simplify consumer lifestyle and become an everyday part of all of our lives.
