IT starts at the tip of your fingers
The JetSet mobile app is the key that opens the door to a new world of travel possibilities. We want to move past the antiquated and obsolete tools that are costly and inconsistent, and introduce a frictionless way to spend money while abroad. Our goal is to give the traveler options on when and how they spend their money and give businesses an alternative form of electronic payment without paying heft processing fees to credit card companies.
We started by
looking at traveler behavior. What is the device that every traveler uses the most nowadays? A smartphone. As access to cellular data becomes more readily available globally, developing an easy to use app was our first goal. No need to carry extra cards, remember pin numbers, or worry about loss or theft.
Then we looked at
which types of customers we want to serve. While many businesses accept credit cards, many businesses don’t, and those that do are still subject to credit card processing fees. Additionally, travelers are still losing out on poor exchange rates, lack of consistent financial structures and regulations, or have no access to credit cards while abroad. So we needed to find a way to solve both problems in one app.
By allowing both businesses and travelers
to sign up using one app, we’ve streamlined the process to use the JetSet network, and give travelers a real time map of where they can use JETS tokens while abroad. For businesses, we’ve developed an easy way to get up and running, tie into the services they already use, and make transactions as seamless as possible.
