thesiliconreview-jeremy-almond-ceo-paystand-17“The Innovators of the First Modern Digital Payment.”

We live in a digital world. However, even today, $550B of the US business payments happens using a paper check. While many of the business processes have been automated, B2B payments continue to require manual processing of paper checks with associated challenges of tracking, reconciliation, and manual labor.

Businesses that are highly efficient do not use digital forms of payment because of the complexities of payment processing and transaction-based cost models of today’s payment methods. Businesses don’t want to pay 2-3% of the total invoicing price to credit card companies when transacting with other businesses they trust and transact frequently at high volume and high average cost of each bill.

With the evolution of mobile, cloud, and blockchain technology, the founders of PayStand understood that this decades-old problem can be solved by taking a brand new approach - an approach where businesses are charged for software (SaaS) and not based on transaction volume. PayStand has developed the first modern digital payment system for business to business transactions, enabling enterprises of all sizes to reduce their time to cash, lower cost, and improve their operational efficiency.

PayStand is venture backed by leading investors in Silicon Valley and has been recognized as one of the disruptive forces in business payments by publications such as TechCrunch, Wall Street Journal, Mashable, Forbes, and many others.
