Step into the fascinating world of text-to-pay and conversational commerce with the trailblazing CEO of Authvia, Chris Brunner. Together, we travel through time, dissecting the evolution of text-to-pay, its plethora of applications, and the exciting prospects it holds for the future.

We discuss how Authvia has revolutionized payments with their innovative suite of solutions that enables merchants to accept payments over text messaging. This means reshaping the payment experience for consumers, ensuring it’s not just about convenience, but also security. From pharmacies to vets, and even companies aiming to recover payments from late payers, the versatility of Authvia‘s solution is truly remarkable. Additionally, we venture into the importance of encryption, the role of cloud-based wallets, and the impact of COVID-19 on the rapid rise of text-to-pay solutions.

We also discuss how Authvia seeks to give consumers control over their personal data, and their right to choose which data to share with merchants. In the near future,  text-to-pay will no longer be a novelty but an integral part of commerce. Join us as we explore the ever-evolving landscape of payments and conversational commerce.
