What is Linkage Pay?
Linkage Pay is committed to the improvement of global payment solutions. By moving the bulk of offline trading services online, Linkage Pay will revolutionize the payment process and empower users to manage their assets more efficiently. These services include transactions, exchange, trading, clearing and settlement, and payment services. The integration of transaction channels and customer-oriented services will afford clients a one-stop experience that is not only convenient but also highly secure. Linkage Pay boasts four key competitive advantages that set it apart from mainstream online payment platforms. These competitive advantages are innovative payment, rapid settlement, integrated payment, and smart business.
Linkage Pay's Business Model
1. Integrated Payment
The traditional payment system is cumbered with layers of red tape, resulting in low efficiency and high processing fee. On top of that, the traditional system relies heavily on third or even fourth-party platforms. The dependence on external factors renders the system more vulnerable to inconsistency, unexpected account closure, among other potential risks. Leveraging blockchain technology, Linkage Pay makes rapid peer-to-peer payment a reality, by offering the most straightforward solution to issues such as complex processes and high exchange rates.
2. Financial Settlement
Linkage Pay's payment system mobilizes innovative payment technology to circumvent information monitoring and high gas fees incurred from the over reliance on third-party platforms. Linkage Pay, in collaboration with Alipay and WeChat Pay, aims to minimize redundancy during the payment processes and cut operating costs by 30 to 50 percent.
3. Investment and Asset Management
Linkage Pay utilizes a portion of the savings to maintain liquidity. The fund will be used to invest in sound and low-risk financial products during the capital accumulation phase to generate multiple returns for the clients.
4. Technical Competitiveness
Linkage Pay incorporates automatic confirmation of Alipay and WeChat Pay barcode in the payment system. A single transaction of US$100 - $50,000 typically generate a return rate of 0.5% to 1%. These transactions can be repeated multiple times in a same day until the platform quota is met.
