Press Releases

BLUE BELL, Pa., Nov. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Rego Payment Architectures, Inc. (“REGO”) (OTCQB:RPMT) today announced that it will be entering the Beta Phase of its COPPA (“Child Online Privacy Protection Act”) and GDPR (“General Data Protection Regulation”) compliant Digital Wallet App – “MazoolaTM” and onboarding users. The Alpha Phase, that the Company has completed, provided valuable information regarding the use of the app from the parent and child viewpoints. This knowledge has now been integrated into the app and REGO is ready to progress to the Beta Phase launch.

Through the Beta test, we will be evaluating the app in a realistic environment. This will focus efforts on previously unidentified design issues. This will enable Rego to commercially launch a product that meets the standards of quality, usability and performance of our customers. Once the Beta Phase is completed, REGO anticipates commercially launching its MazoolaTM App, on December 15, 2020.

REGO’s MazoolaTM app is an unprecedented family-focused financial and COPPA and GDPR compliant solution. It allows children to shop from parent-approved retailers, deliver peer-to-peer payments, teaches financial literacy, all while keeping identities secure and safe. REGO has patented attribution and identity management methods, patented real-time access and data control, and independent verification, validation, and auditing techniques, among other core capabilities.

Peter S. Pelullo, Chief Executive Officer, REGO said: “Our team and our highly successful group of industry subcontractors have worked together and kept to our timetable initiated three months ago. Delivery of the first all digital COPPA and GDPR compliant payment platform that protects and teaches children financial responsibility has been challenging, but also has been a more than worthwhile endeavor to insure the safety of the 70 million plus 17 and under consumers.”

SKB Capital Acted as Financial Advisor During the Funding Round

BLUE BELL, Pa., July 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — REGO Payment Architectures, Inc. (“REGO”) (OTCQB: RPMT) today announced it has secured a significant round of funding to bring the total to $9.3 million to date in Series C funding led by SKB Capital. The funding will allow REGO to launch its secure mobile banking solution to families in the U.S. and the European Union later this year.

“Investors renewed their support for the REGO Digital Wallet, in light of robust demand for digital mobile wallets, particularly with cybersecurity and personal identity management protections. The closing of this strategic growth capital resolves the essential missing piece to move the REGO Digital Wallet into a position to begin to engage customers with its newly launched service in 2020,” said Suzanne E. Kecmer, founder, SKB Capital, and financial advisor for REGO.

REGO’s Digital Wallet is an unprecedented family-focused financial solution. It allows children to shop from parent-approved retailers, deliver peer-to-peer payments, teaches financial literacy, all while keeping identities secure. It has patented attribution and identity management methods, patented real-time access and data control, and independent verification, validation, and auditing techniques, among other core capabilities.

REGO’s Digital Wallet received the GDPRkids™ Trustmark from PRIVO in early 2020 demonstrating that REGO meets the requirements of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as well as COPPA Safe Harbor certification with PRIVO, which is a Federal Trade Commission approved designation certifying that REGO is protecting children as they make online purchases.

“REGO is now in a position to finalize systems integration, kick-off our pilot program, as well as initiate a data business,” notes Scott McPherson, chief financial officer, REGO.

“With more children consuming and purchasing digital content and having online purchases shipped to their homes, ensuring that minors have a secure banking experience and protecting their personally identifiable information is more important than ever,” added Kecmer. “As the COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically shifted how people work, travel, and shop, having a safe, touchless solution that can be used anywhere is critical to keeping children and families safe.”

REGO’s Digital Wallet is available for partnering institutions. The consumer version of REGO Digital Wallet has an anticipated release in 2020. Learn more at regopayments.com

Kecmer, investment banking lead for REGO and founder of SKB Capital. “Strategically, REGO will be a strong global partner to any institution seeking to build a family wallet capability, especially financial and social media-based institutions.

REGO Payment Architectures, Inc. (OTCQB:RPMT) Continuing the unprecedented pace of development for the OINK payment platform; (the Alpha version released in April just six months into development), Rego announces that it has demonstrated the Beta version of the application. This Beta release is a major milestone, setting the stage for the general release in September when it will be tested by 400 students of varying demographic backgrounds in four independent schools.

“Our ability to produce this complex application in the time frames we have achieved is based upon the solid architecture and original design conceived back in October,” says John Coyne CEO of Rego. “By utilizing the decision based capability of AI techniques embodied in the back end design, we were able to circumvent the normal tedious designs of previous era programming. Our Los Angeles front end programming team incorporated the process flows developed by Red Interactive Agency, (RED) the digital design agency based in Santa Monica, California. Red tested the interfaces with focus groups to ensure the best possible user experience; this allowed Rego to short circuit the process of development by working on the User Experience and the Back End architecture concurrently.” The benefits of this aggressive methodology are paying off, getting Oink’s payment system market ready in a highly compressed timeframe.  

Rego is now in the process of security testing to ensure that the system has all the protection it needs for transaction processing and data integrity. Rego’s partner, Cognition Concept, is improving scalability of the application in anticipation of a rapid adoption. “It’s not too soon to start planning for that wider market strategy,” said Coyne. “The Beta will teach us a great deal, and there will be a certain amount of time and effort to see to it that we get the most out of the testing phase, and incorporate those lessons into the launch-product, but I’m already looking beyond that.”

Rego will be soon announcing new members of our advisory board that will help in diversifying our payment markets and providing support services to ensure the most convenient of customer experiences. On a team conference call today John ended the call on a determined note by stating, “I believe in the product and all of its potential. All the research and testing suggests that the market and its targeted demographics are ready for this unique payment platform that we’ve designed with them in mind. We’re doing everything we can, with the resources we have, to set Oink up for success.”

Rego Payment Architectures, Inc. (OTCQB: RPMT) announces a major milestone. This week the joint technology development team tested the Alpha version of the OINK payment platform. With just six months having passed since OINK made the pivot to being a mobile based payment platform for the youth market, Rego CEO John Coyne proudly announced that the Alpha test was a “complete success.”

“Having identified that 70% of our customers (the youth market) use Amazon as their preferred online purchasing site, it made sense to see if the test would work there. I’m pleased to say that the development team did it, without a hitch. Now, the fact that it works means that we can enter the market as planned but it’s no guarantee of adoption.”

Buying something on Amazon is something that millions of people do every day. However what makes this test unique is that it required OINK’s highly complicated interplay of compliance, contract models, and the existing payment infrastructure.

“To protect our customers and their children, and to comply with commerce regulations for children under 18, OINK uses a proprietary set of models that until now only theoretically worked in a mobile application. Now we have proven our theory in the real world.” Coyne said today, underlining the efforts of his development team, “We’ve done something very, very difficult, in a time frame nearly unheard of for a major application.”

This speed-to-development was enabled by the use of Artificial Intelligence techniques, allowing the system to perform its own reasoning in solving complex internal relationships.

Arian Verbeek, the lead developer for the team in the Netherlands, pioneering those techniques said, “For the Alpha release to be successful, both the back end and front end (phone and user experience (UX) had to operate seamlessly in conjunction with one another.  The added complexity of development was integrating both the AI components and the front-end with teams operating in the Netherlands and Los Angeles. We were certainly all a bit nervous there for a moment, but the success of this test moves us forward and proves the architecture is sound.”

Dave Aparo, a Director on Rego’s LA team is delighted with the results and said, “This is a testament to the technical and project management skills of both teams.  But it is also a tribute to our unique architecture that combines components of both artificial intelligence, for complex decision making, and standard programming tools used to develop the user experience.”

This testing will continue through May, from the internal branches that determine process flow to the integration points for our banking partners and we will subject our system to multiple levels of security testing to prevent hackers from compromising our system or stealing our data. It’s an exciting time as Rego takes the new OINK from concept to reality.

Be Informed and Rego Payment Architectures, Inc. (OTCQB: RPMT) have entered into three memorandums of understanding (MOU)  in anticipation of the many and various expanding markets where this mobile payment technology will be advantageous. The MOU’s allow Rego to enter into production agreements under similar terms and conditions to its OINK payment platform, the only technology compliant with “The Children’s Online Protection Act” (COPPA). The agreements cover the anticipated welfare benefits, the unbanked and closed loop platforms.  The closed loop platform has multiple market uses and is broad enough to anticipate any new markets that wish to utilize this versatile technology.

Be Informed’s CEO Rick Hoogenberg said, “We were excited about Rego’s original payment platform for the under 17 market and are eager to participate in these new markets supported by our advanced semantic based technology platform.  We are especially qualified in the government sector having built some of the most advanced government and municipal systems in Europe and anticipate working with Rego and its integration partners with the same payment architecture Rego developed using our tool sets.”

John Coyne, CEO of Rego Payment Architectures, Inc. further stated, “I have personally had a long and strong working relationship with Be Informed.  As our partnership continues to grow, I am confident that between Rego’s applied use of this technology and Be Informed’s on-going improvement to its platform, we will have an edge over competing alternatives.  We have already developed our base platform in a matter of months rather than years allowing us to enter the under 17 market this year with our COPPA complaint Oink technology. More importantly, the flexibility we have in our development means that we can change and adapt our system to meet both market and user demands.  This is especially important in our regulatory module that can anticipate regulatory changes implementing compliance within days rather than months protecting our users and the vendors that accept payment through our platform.”

Rego is now developing a variety of closed loop applications.  A closed loop application is one in which Rego directly processes payments outside of the interchange networks and affords the user of the Rego system reduced transaction fees and better access to data analytics.  “This important partnership of technologies provides Rego with a strong long term outlook for expanding its revenue streams,” commented Coyne.

Coyne also sees a lot of opportunity for welfare benefit payment applications, “We have been in discussion with global system integrators that believe our platform is perfect for complex welfare payment control; especially in Europe where there has become an increased dependence on welfare benefits.  With our CM (contract model) and ReTRO (Real Time Regulatory Oversight), governments would now be able to map the benefits programs to their regulations and control the use of benefits proceeds to assure that the money is being spent efficiently, effectively and in the manner intended.” Welfare benefits comprise, on average, 20% of the Country’s GDP, (OCED report, 2014).

REGO Payment Architectures, Inc. (REGO) (OTCQB: RPMT) signed a definitive agreement with Be Informed BV effective July 2017 for the company’s commercial launch of its unique digital mobile payment system.  This agreement follows the development MOU signed in November of 2016.  The terms and conditions allow REGO’s COPPA compliant OINK payment platform unlimited use of its developed technology to be available to children and their families for direct mobile payments.

OINK is an all digital mobile payment system with Peer to Peer transfers, fully automated parental controls and multiple layers of security. The parental controls provide flexibility for managing a child’s funds while ensuring privacy and protecting the transactions. Children will have the freedom to shop while learning financial discipline all within the constraints set by their parents.

John Coyne CEO of REGO said, “I knew that the Be Informed development platform would accelerate our development of our unique payment platform for the under 18 market.  It has proven to be a very successful environment and allowed us to integrate our mobile application simply and seamlessly.” 

The terms of the agreement are confidential but based upon familial usage rather than individuals.  Geert Rensen a director of Be Informed stated, “the familial model allowed REGO and Be Informed to enter into a license that facilitated both our financial goals while satisfying needs of REGO’s targeted OINK audience.”  Coyne followed up with, “this simplified approach means that we do not have to account for multiple children in the family as users.  It is also appropriate because it is the parents that sign up for the service.”
