Fyncr on Thursday (Feb. 10) released what it’s calling “the first all-in-one-card bill payment mobile application” in the US, noting in the company announcement that it’s focused on helping people manage their credit cards, save more money and spend smarter.
In the announcement, Fyncr touts itself as “the only platform that allows every credit card owner to securely store, view and pay all their credit cards from any bank account.” Additionally, users can earn reward points, called FYX, and access deals, discounts and free items from more than 500 brands in the app.
Through Fyncr’s automated payment system, customers don’t need to use different banking apps to pay their credit card bills on time, which in turn will increase their credit scores and ease their financial burdens.
Fyncr relies on experts from Accenture, Dell, Publicis and others to distill tech and FinTech wisdom. The company has raised $3 million from entrepreneurs, angel investors and small investment company owners, according to the release, and the app has been downloaded more than 20,000 times since its release two months ago.
“We aim to revolutionize the bill payment experience and transform it into a rewarding one, giving the customers the financial freedom to do the things that they care about,” Fyncr founder and CEO Sahil Kumar said in the announcement. “The idea is to alter the culture of late payments and fees, depleting credit score and the hassle of paying bills.
“We also believe we have a social responsibility to reduce the credit card debt that has been haunting the US market, by motivating users to pay back early, pay back more and enjoy more rewards.”
