Textura Payments System: More than a Payment System?
On Saturday, the Orlando Sentinel reported that the Orlando City Soccer Club has purchased a “payments system” that will allow the club to accept credit cards.
The Sentinel’s sources, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the matter publicly, told the publication that the payment system is being built to “provide the club with access to an increasing amount of credit cards.”
The payments system, which will be used for a number of different transactions, will be integrated with the club’s payment and loyalty programs, according to the report.
According to the Orlandoist, the payments system will “provides the club access to a growing amount ofcredit cards.”
The payment system will allow Orlando City to “charge customers for the amount of their card purchases and then transfer those payments to their wallet” to pay for a variety of items.
A textura system was previously used by the Miami Dolphins and the New York Giants, among other professional sports teams.
Textura is a payment system that was originally created by the Chicago Cubs and is similar to the PayPal system.
It’s a payment processor that allows consumers to pay with a credit card.
The company currently uses PayPal, Mastercard and American Express to process payments for the club.
In addition to the payments platform, the newspaper said that the team also plans to use an app that will connect fans to their preferred payment options.
There is a “unique combination of technology and technology integration” that is creating a “multi-platform solution” for the Orlando Soccer Club, the article stated.
“We are thrilled to partner with Textura and the Orlando Orlando City Football Club to bring the club the technology and customer-friendly solutions that we know will make them the leader in digital payments in Orlando,” Orlando City Chief Technology Officer Michael Haus, Jr. said in a statement.
Head Coach Adrian Heath is reportedly a fan of the company, tweeting a photo of Heath’s headband.
