TORONTO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Goldmoney Inc. (TSX:XAU) (US:XAUMF) (“Goldmoney”), a precious metal financial service and technology company, and Menē Inc. (TSX-V:MENE) (US:MENEF) (“Menē”), an online 24 karat jewelry brand, today announced a new payment integration partnership that allows Goldmoney clients to conveniently pay for Menē purchases with precious metal or fiat currency in their Goldmoney Holding.
The Goldmoney payment experience at mene.com is secure, transparent and seamless. After selecting “Goldmoney” on the Menē checkout page, customers are provided with login access to their Goldmoney Holding and can pay for their purchase using their precious metal (gold, silver, platinum, or palladium) or a fiat currency (US dollar, Canadian dollar, British pound, euros, or Swiss franc). Once they confirm the purchase, Goldmoney automatically transfers the chosen metal or currency amount, completing the Menē checkout process instantly with no cost to the Goldmoney client. It also eliminates the fraud and identity theft risks associated with many traditional payment methods.
“We are thrilled to be pairing with Menē on the launch of this new Goldmoney payment feature,” said Paul Mennega, Goldmoney’s Chief Operating Officer. “We are always looking at new ways to increase the usefulness of the Goldmoney Holding. Offering our clients the ability to convert their vaulted physical metals into Menē’s pure gold and platinum jewelry is something that they have been asking for, and we are proud to deliver. We look forward to offering Goldmoney’s payment product to other select merchants in the future.”
This new payment choice is available to Goldmoney Holding clients* for all purchases on mene.com. There is no minimum or maximum spending requirement.
* Certain regional and other restrictions apply
