STEELSERIES PARTNERS WITH PAYNEARME TO OFFER FLEXIBLE CASH PAYMENT CHOICE TO GAMING CUSTOMERS

CHICAGO, Oct. 29, 2010SteelSeries, the leading global manufacturer of gaming peripherals and accessories, and PayNearMe, a service that makes it easier for consumers to make cash payments remotely, today announced that SteelSeries is now offering PayNearMe as a payment option to its customers. Gamers who prefer to use cash will now be able to make product purchases on SteelSeries’ Web Shop, without the need for a credit or debit card, and pay at any of over 6,000 convenient 7-Eleven retail locations across the US.

PayNearMe provides SteelSeries customers with a method of payment that is simpler to use and often far less expensive than current payment alternatives such as pre-paid debit cards, walk-up bill pay or money orders sent by mail. With PayNearMe, consumers simply place their product order online, choose PayNearMe as their payment option, include their zip code and then choose the closest participating 7-Eleven location. Customers are given easy directions on what to print and where to pay. After making their payment at a local 7-Eleven store, SteelSeries is notified of the payment in real-time, and the customers’ order is immediately processed and shipped.

“With PayNearMe we can expand our business to serve our customers who rely primarily on cash for their purchases,” said Bruce Hawver, CEO, SteelSeries. “We’re now able to give consumers a simple and secure way to purchase gaming peripherals and accessories with cash through the convenience of ordering online and paying for them at a local 7-Eleven store.”

“Gamers who prefer to pay with cash now have a convenient cash payment option,” said Danny Shader, CEO PayNearMe. “PayNearMe empowers SteelSeries’ customers to take advantage of the benefits of ecommerce without requiring them to use a credit or debit card.”
