Yuval Tal on Cross-Border Payments and Payoneer

Brian and his family are preparing for a much-needed vacation. This year they are heading for Orlando, Florida to enjoy the theme parks, restaurants, events and other attractions for a week of fun in the sun. While researching their upcoming vacation at the Orlando Visitor’s Bureau website, Brian spotted an interesting link for the “Orlando Electronic Pass (ePass)”. This ePass offer included tickets, passes, discounts, audio/video 소액결제현금화 tours, coupons, special offers and even a secure electronic wallet for their vacation money. For $50 per Orlando ePass, Brian and his family would receive approximately $700 worth of discounts and passes at some of their favorite places including all theme parks, all the major hotels, restaurants, cinemas, gift shops and local events. Also included in the Orlando ePass are videos of Orlando that can be viewed and listened to on the Orlando ePass since it is also an audio (mp3) and video (mp4) player. So Brian orders four Orlando ePasses and is informed that he can pick them up at the Orlando Welcome Desk at the Orlando International Airport upon arrival.

When Brian and his family arrive at the Orlando Welcome Desk at the airport, Brian and his wife present their photo IDs to the hostess at the desk. Since Brian already has an Apple iPhone she gives him a little Orlando key fob with a fingerprint sensor. She gives each of the others a very cool looking little mp3/mp4 player device on an Orlando lanyard, with a fingerprint sensor and a LCD screen. She explains to them that both forms of the Orlando ePass aretheir portable electronic concierge and will be their electronic pass (Orlando ePass) to everything they want to do in Orlando. It will communicate with standard contactless RFID at most turnstiles and cash registers. It will communicate with handheld computers in the theme parks as well. It can also be connected to any computer by standard USB port for downloading additional tickets, cash, audio files, videos, information and coupons and is completely secure. It also plays standard mp3 music and other audio files and plays standard avi (audio-video interleave) format video/movies. Brian’s Orlando ePass key fob pairs easily to his iPhone by Bluetooth. He then downloads a meWallet® application from the iTunes™app store that allows his iPhone to do most of the same functions as the family’s mp3 Player devices.

They can see what is in the Orlando ePass by reading the LCD screen on the front of the ePass or on the iPhone. Brian and each of the family members are quickly shown how to register their fingerprint into the ePasses. After they have registered their fingerprints, the Orlando ePass are theirs. From then on, only the person who is registered on the device can make it work. The Orlando hostess also explains to them that the Orlando ePass is equipped with Auto-Redemption™, which means that any coupons available to discount a purchase will automatically be used at the register when paying and any passes available will be utilized automatically as well. She tells them that they can see all their tickets, cash, coupons, passes and data at any time on the Orlando ePass’s screen or the iPhone’s screen and that they do not have to remember to use the coupons. This is all done for them.
