Rite Aid™ Joins Long List of Retailers Within KUBRA Retail Cash Payments Network
January 10, 2023
Tempe, AZ (January 10, 2022) — KUBRA, a leading provider of customer experience management solutions for some of the largest utility, insurance and government entities, has announced the addition of Rite Aid™ to its cash payment network of retailers, giving cash-paying customers thousands of new retail locations where they can pay their bills.
“Our goal is to bring the most convenient and accessible bill payment option to cash-preferred customers that we can,” says Rick Watkin, President and CEO of KUBRA. “Adding Rite Aid to our payment network brings us another step closer to achieving this goal.”
Rite Aid™ is the 19th retailer to join KUBRA’s Retail Cash Payments (RCP) Network, adding 2,257 new retail locations in 17 states across the country. This raises the total number across the U.S. to more than 72,000 retail locations.
KUBRA launched its RCP Network as part of its KUBRA EZ-PAY™ payment solution in 2014 when it began a partnership with InComm Payments, a leading payments technology company whose VanillaDirect™ platform enables consumers to fund accounts and make real-time payments with cash at retail. For the past eight years, KUBRA has focused on digitizing cash payments as they’ve witnessed payment options become more essential to customer satisfaction. The KUBRA EZ-PAY RCP Network provides a secure, convenient and accessible way for cash preference, unbanked and underbanked customers to pay their bills.
How the KUBRA EZ-PAY RCP Network Works
Customers receive their personalized and reusable barcode on their printed bill, or they can download the barcode to their mobile phone from their biller’s website. Printed barcodes are accompanied by a list of retailers in that consumer’s neighborhood where they can make their cash payment. When creating the barcode digitally, customers can use KUBRA’s dynamic map tool to choose their ideal retail location. The unique barcode contains all the information required to validate a cash payment. Once a cash payment is made at any of the retail store locations in the network, it will be authenticated and authorized in real time. Customers have the option to receive text and email confirmations when their payment is successful.
