Chalin Taps Sionic Mobile’s ION LoyaltyⓇ Reseller Center

Newest center helps payment industry resellers drive profitability,
gain competitive advantage in crowded market

ATLANTA–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sionic
Mobile
today announced the launch of its newest online center
designed specifically for resellers of payment services and independent
sales organizations (ISOs). The ION Loyalty Reseller Center provides
tools resellers need to grow their businesses by combining mobile
payments, marketing and customer rewards for their small-medium size
businesses. Merchants pay a flat rate of one percent for payment
processing, regardless of credit card brand or type, and gain added
benefit from unlimited mobile ads, self-branded e-gift cards and one
percent automated customer rewards.

Georgia-based Chalin, Inc. is among the first payment service providers
to leverage the new platform. According to the company’s CEO, Chris
Bissell, Sionic Mobile’s Reseller Center will be a game changer for
small businesses and the payments market.

“Sionic Mobile’s Reseller Center provides resellers a viable strategy to
gain the competitive edge in the mobile movement,” said Bissell. “My
team now has the ability to onboard new merchants in a matter of
minutes. It doesn’t require any upfront investment or expensive new
hardware, which allows any business owner, regardless of size, to
compete in the mobile market. I’m excited to provide businesses with a
free mobile advertising platform, e-gift cards and the ability to reward
new and loyal customers. Providing these benefits at a low rate simply
allows us to compete with all other mobile payment and advertising
services.”

The Reseller Center is highly intuitive, helping resellers to onboard
merchants with a few simple clicks. Once accounts are approved,
merchants may immediately accept low-cost payments and offer instant
rewards to their customers at every checkout. The new ION Loyalty app
for smartphones and tablets features Scan Pay, allowing merchants to
accept plastic card payments from their mobile devices without any
additional swipe hardware or EMV devices. The Reseller Center provides
detailed reporting and supports multiple merchant organizations
regardless of size, industry or location.

“Resellers have essentially been locked out of, or limited by the mobile
movement up until this point,” said Ronald Herman, CEO and founder of
Sionic Mobile. “We are providing resellers the tools needed to compete
in an increasingly mobile market. We look forward to working with Chris
Bissell and like-minded ISOs and resellers, helping business owners
expand their footprint with mobile marketing, build customer loyalty
with instant rewards and lower their costs with one of the industry’s
best processing rates.”

Midtown Atlanta-based Sionic Mobile provides low-cost payments bundled

may spend IONs (1,000 IONs = $1.00) at any merchant in the ION
Marketplace on anything at any time or they may donate their IONs to a
local charity or cause. Businesses use ION LoyaltyⓇ securely online, on
