PayNearMe is simple for your customers and simple for you

PayNearMe is the cash transaction network that makes it easy for payees to accept cash payments quickly and easily through any of 17,000 participating 7-Eleven, Family Dollar, and ACE Cash Express stores nationwide.

Customers can go to their local 7-Eleven or Family Dollar store at any time of day or night and make a payment in less than 60 seconds. PayNearMe offers a cost effective, convenient way for customers to pay for online purchases, repay loans, pay rent and much more with cash.

PayNearMe follows a simple 3-step process. After selecting an item online to purchase or a payment to make, customers select paynearme as the payment option, print a PayNearMe PaySlip or Card, and then pay at a local store.


Once the PayNearMe PaySlip is scanned or Card is swiped and payment is made, the merchant is immediately notified that good funds have been received. Whether it is an online or over-the-phone purchase, a rent payment or any form of remote commerce, the transaction is completed at the store register in real time.

Your customer walks away with a receipt that can also contain detailed information such as, purchase details, ticket information, or even a mini statement containing balance and next payment date.


Powerful, flexible and easy to use.

We provide a general purpose platform for accepting cash payments in real-time, and allow customers to complete simple or complex transactions easily at a local store.



The easiest way to pay with cash.

Our smartphone simulation demonstrates how PayNearMe is integrated into a online store's check-out process or payments page, for the easiest possible way to pay with cash.
