BlytzPay Announces Payments Technology Partnership With AFS And Achieves Status As A Payments Facilitator (PAYFAC)

 BlytzPay, a mobile payment solution designed to improve the ease and speed by which businesses invoice and collect payments from customers, has today announced a strategic partnership with AFS Dealers. Under the terms of the partnership, AFS Dealers and BlytzPay will integrate their technology platforms, providing AFS Dealer customers with the ability to manage payments and invoicing through a more robust DMS experience.

BlytzPay also announced its status as payments facilitator (PayFac), a unique operating category that makes reporting and settlement much easier for merchants who will no longer need to establish direct relationships with banks or payment gateways. As a PayFac the fintech firm will have more agile funding capabilities to support its growing roster of clients.

AFS Dealers Chief Operating Officer Bill Elizondo said, “The integration with BlytzPay compliments our web based DMS Solutions Software with friction-less payment technology. BlytzPay has created efficiencies, far advanced for our industry, that allow payments at over 100,000 locations while still keeping the connection with our auto dealers customers. We are proud to call them a partner said Bill Elizondo Chief Operating Officer.”

BlytzPay’s comprehensive and straightforward technology solutions and new status as a PayFac enable businesses to communicate, invoice and collect from their customers via text message as well as report and settle through the BlytzPay platform. For AFS Dealers and BlytzPay clients this means enhanced software capabilities for their customer network, providing sophisticated, real-time, text message communication, invoicing and dynamic funding and payments capabilities.

BlytzPay CEO Robyn Burkinshaw said, “We are thrilled to partner with AFS Dealers. Alongside many other industries that previously relied on in-person interaction to process and collect payments, the auto industry is rightly recognizing the immediate need for digitization.” She continued, “As a PayFac our technology supports a more secure, easier to use and more efficient experience within the B2B2C construct while delivering an excellent customer experience. We anticipate seeing more industries driving this type of positive change in the coming years.”
