Digitzs a new merchant payment platform, announced the launch of an equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdfunder to raise $500,000. Digitzs founders, Laura Wagner and the first CFO of PayPal, David Jaques, will use the funds to complete the Digitzs’ suite of payment solutions, which will launch this summer.
“I’ve processed billions in card payments for my infomercials. Becoming an equity owner in Digitzs is my way of getting even on all of those fees (and more). Digitzs has the team, the traction and the technology to be the next big disruptor in the trillion-dollar payments space. I’m thrilled to have an early stake in this promising company.”
Leading the charge at Digitzs is Laura Wagner, a proven entrepreneur in the payments space. In the ‘90s, Wagner launched one of the first gift cards in history for Niemen Marcus. A decade later, she created a unique payment solution for McDonald’s where debit cards were accepted (at no cost) to the franchisees.
This year, Wagner and her all-star team from PayPal, Visa and Apple will carve their niche in a massive, yet grossly underserved segment of the payments space: merchants who don’t swipe cards or use shopping carts.
David Jaques, a Digitzs founder and PayPal’s first CFO explained:
“One of the largest banks in North America has taken a stake in Digitzs. We had a similar path at PayPal nearly two decades ago. Our massive niche market is growing at 15 percent each year and our technology is unrivaled.”
Chance Barnett, CEO of Crowdfunder noted:
“It takes unique technology, a team of dedicated experts and perseverance to create something that is going to change a marketplace. The early response from our community of investors confirms that Digitzs has the potential to do just that.”
“We compared many platforms before choosing to launch on Crowdfunder. I feel fortunate to have such an experienced and proven team of experts on our side, and access to a superior network of investors in the equity crowdfunding space.”
