  • Patent number: 11410154
    Abstract: In some examples, methods and systems may process one or more payment transactions between a merchant and a customer by obtaining at least one payment proxy having a syntax including a monetary currency indicator preceding an alphanumeric character. The payment proxy may be transmitted by a transmitter component of a payment beacon device. The method includes generating, through an application accessed through the customer device, a message by identifying the payment proxy in a message and a money transfer amount in the message; parsing the payment proxy to identify the merchant associated with the payment proxy in the message; identifying a merchant financial account associated with the identified merchant, based on a stored association between the merchant financial account and the identified merchant; and initiating, by the payment processing system, a transfer of funds indicative of the money transfer amount from a financial account of the customer to a financial account of the merchant.

  • Patent number: 11410247
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a technology for automatically triggering delivery of a digital receipt for a financial transaction based on a previously stored electronic address for receiving digital receipts. In at least some embodiments, the technology includes a digital receipt system working in coordination with one or more merchants' POS device to deliver receipts for current transactions based on a previously stored electronic address from past transactions. The first time a user utilizes a payment instrument in a transaction, the system associates and stores the payment-instrument information with an identifier of the user. The next time a transaction is detected that involves the identifier, the system automatically triggers receipt delivery to an electronic address associated with the identifier.

  • Patent number: 10810682
    Abstract: Disclosed herein is a technology for automatically triggering delivery of a digital receipt for a financial transaction based on a previously stored electronic address for receiving digital receipts. In at least some embodiments, the technology includes a digital receipt system working in coordination with one or more merchants' POS device to deliver receipts for current transactions based on a previously stored electronic address from past transactions. The first time a user utilizes a payment card in a transaction, the system associates and stores a user-provided electronic address with the card. The next time the user utilizes the card in a new transaction, the system identifies the card has been used in a past transaction, determines the electronic address associated with the card, and automatically triggers receipt delivery to the electronic address, regardless of the new transaction being with a same or different merchant than the one in the past transaction.

  • Patent number: 8807338
    Abstract: A package for mailing of a light-weight product includes a compressible body and a sheet that is less compressible than the body. A front face of the body has a cutout shaped to receive the product. The sheet has a planar first panel and a planar second panel. An inside face of the first panel is secured to a back face of the compressible body. The second panel is foldably connected to a first edge of the first panel and movable between a folded configuration in which the second panel covers the front face of the compressible body and an unfolded configuration in which the front face of the compressible body is uncovered and an inside face of the second panel is exposed. The sheet does not cover the top face and the bottom face of the compressible body.
