ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sionic Mobile, an mCommerce company providing mobile marketing, gifting, payments and rewards, today announced it has added and now features the ability to pay with Google Wallet in its ION Rewards® app for Android, available for free in Google Play. For a limited introductory period, users will get paid double ION rewards, two percent of their purchase amount, each time they checkout using the “Buy with Google” option. ION is the first fully digital cloud-based mCommerce platform and may be used at more than 25,000 retail and restaurant locations including Lowe’s, Staples, Sephora and Papa John’s Pizza.
“When we created ION Rewards, we took a radically different approach by focusing on the customer experience and removing layers of restrictions that hinder traditional rewards programs,” said Ronald Herman, CEO of Sionic Mobile. “Our process is simple; ION users get paid each and every time they make purchases using their smartphones. The rewards are instant and there are no limitations on when or how the rewards are used. By adding the ‘Buy with Google’ button, Google Wallet users can now take advantage of these rewards, while maintaining the simplicity, security and convenience of paying with their Android smartphones.”
Google Wallet users can complete a mobile checkout in just two clicks using the Google Wallet Instant Buy feature within the ION Rewards app. Users are then instantly rewarded with IONs that never expire and spend like cash at thousands of fuel, restaurant and retail locations nationwide. All transactions are secured, monitored for fraud 24/7 and covered by Google Wallet Purchase Protection.
