Our story began in 2010 with a simple goal: to deliver a solution that would facilitate electronic supplier payments for businesses—and generate profit in the process.
It would need flexible, agnostic technology that adapted to client needs with dedicated support teams in place.
It would need to be both easy to use and thorough in order to lessen the workloads of Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivable departments.
It would need to deliver the same cash rebates that other payments companies were already providing, but in a way that was more generous and more transparent.
And, of course, it would need to be unfailingly secure.
Partnerships and recognition
So we rolled up our sleeves, got to work and created AP Advantage, now known as Paymerang. Like a boomerang, Paymerang is all about reciprocal actions. You pay out money, and money comes back to you. Quite a bit of money, in fact. We’re able to pay competitive rebates by working harder to enroll more of your suppliers in virtual cards. Virtual cards are not only great for rewards, they also offer the added convenience of no limits on payments and no lengthy financial statements. Even better, you’re never exposed to risk since all virtual cards are issued in our name. With Paymerang, you get a new revenue stream without paying anything out of pocket for our services. Your suppliers get faster payments. And we get to achieve our original goal of making payments pay off for businesses. It’s a win-win-win situation.
At Paymerang, we believe in the radical power of simplicity and transparency. Our powerful payments engine has taken us from a handful of local clients to processing billions in payments every year for hospitals, renowned universities, banks, public utilities, billion-dollar corporations, professional sports teams and beyond. Let us do the same for you.
