Accepting credit and debit card payments is costly for smaller businesses. But cash can be an inconvenience for customers. With Stuypend, you (the customer) get the convenience of a debit card without hurting a smaller merchant.
Stuypend Tabs allows you to start a tab at a bar or restaurant with your phone rather than handing over a credit card. Track your tab in real time from your lock screen, close out whenever you're ready without waiting for a bartender or server, and never forget your card at the bar again.
In addition, Stuypend replaces those pesky punch cards and is your source for earning rewards. No more remembering to bring a punch card every time you go to your favorite sandwich or coffee place, and you don't need one card for coffee and another for sandwiches. All of your rewards and loyalty points for all of your favorite shops are managed in one place, automatically.
You can use Stuypend to make purchases in your favorite local bar, cafe, bakery, or wine shop. It's as easy to use as a debit card, and merchants save on fees charged by credit card companies when you use our app.
Paying with Stuypend is safe and secure. Please see our security page and FAQ for details on the steps we take to keep you safe while using Stuypend to make purchases: www.stuypend.com/security and stuypend.com/faq
