Newsletter June

June has passed as swiftly as it came but not without leaving some impressive results and
BIG announcements!

We at Research Innovate lifestyle would like to send out a sincere thank you to our social media followers, individual users and businesses that supported the Payswif platform.  We are extremely happy about the month of June but before we get into it, we will like to ask the new followers to please read more about Payswif here and how Research Innovate Lifestyle is changing the way we pay, with Payswif.

We are very pleased with the numbers and Payswif has successfully executed over $250,000 EC dollars  in transactions; that’s saving quite a lot of people from the hassle of standing in line to receive money from friends and family abroad or paying those essential utility bills for the home or business!

A huge change is occurring in which business owners are now seeing the need to upgrade to digital technologies not only to stay ahead of the competition but to also protect the lives of their employees and customers. Covid-19 has definitely taught us this significant lesson in how we do business as Vincentians.

We are also witnessing the awakening of individuals who no longer see the logic in standing in 3 to 4 separate lines at different locations to pay utility bills or conduct routine tasks on a monthly, weekly and daily basis. Payswif has successfully completed over $75,000+ EC dollars in bill payments to (Flow, Vinlec, CWSA & Courts) on behalf of our users, a 50%+ increase from May’s $50,000 EC dollars. No more long lines!

The excitement is not over just yet, we’ve gone FEELESS. What?!  Yes, we announced going free!

All major Payswif transactions are now feeless, this means there is no additional cost when receiving swifcash to your account, making a bill payment, conducting a mobile credit topup, transferring swifcash to another Payswif user’s account, withdrawing your swifcash to your bank and credit union account or from integrating Payswif as a gateway into your wordpress woocommerce website and Mobile Apps.

The announcement of going feeless has definitely sparked more interest in going digital and we are currently in negotiations with businesses from the insurance industry, restaurant industry and the new upcoming tech & software industry here in SVG. We will make all of our major partnerships and collaborations known in our next newsletter so stay connected to our blog and social media pages!

Payswif will keep disrupting the norm by making bold & innovative changes that will pave the way for an improved Vincentian way of life, an UPGRADE to the future!

Be safer, be smarter, be faster, be feeless with Payswif!

Newsletter May 2020

As we prepare for a major announcement this June, lets first reflect on the milestones of May 2020, one month after our public launch on the 17th of April.

We know it’s hard for new and locally owned small businesses in St. Vincent and the Grenadines to get the support they need in order to grow, especially now in a global pandemic (COVID-19). We are thankful this is actively changing and the public is willing to  give Vincentian businesses a much needed chance.

There has been more ICT/Tech business startups this year and we have worked with a number of these businesses to integrate Payswif directly into their websites and mobile apps, existing businesses have now also transitioned to accepting digital payments for their products and services. The month of May has been a relatively busy one and promises that June will be no different with our BIG announcement.

Payswif has grown to over 1500 users across platforms for iOS, Android and Web. We have 30+ five star reviews in the app stores from satisfied users with over 6,000 digital transactions totaling $200,000+ EC dollars. Over $50,000+ EC dollars of which were bill payments to CWSA, VINLEC, COURTS & FLOW on behalf of our users (think of how many long lines were avoided).

We are so happy to have helped so many Vincentians in such a short time, there is more room for growth and with your support we can bring more positive changes to St. Vincent and the Grenadines. 

We are preparing for a major announcement this June 2020. We know our existing fans and new users will be BLOWN away by this announcement. So follow our Facebook, Twitter & IG pages and install the #1 payment app to your mobile phone today!
