SEAMLESS DISTRIBUTION AB: SEQR mobile wallet offers an easier path to fundraising and giving

Seamless Distribution AB
Company Announcement

SEQR mobile wallet offers an easier path to fundraising and giving

Giving should be easy. That’s why Seamless, the company behind the mobile
wallet SEQR, has applied its technology using QR-codes to fundraising. Now,
users of the SEQR-app can donate money directly inside the app or by scanning a
QR-code unique to each participating organization. The QR-code is also easily
displayed in digital or traditional marketing channels. Amnesty International
(Sweden), Plan (Sweden) and the Child Cancer Foundation (Sweden) are among the
twelve organizations that are already accepting donations through SEQR.

- Our vision is to offer mobile payment solutions that change the payment
industry. By donating through SEQR, it only takes a minute to make a
difference. Since the QR-codes are unique we can easily assist the
organizations in measuring the reach and success when it comes to choice of
media channel, says Anders Forssten, Global Marketing Manager SEQR, also
responsible for the charity web site Allainsamlingar.

Since QR-codes can be applied to almost anything, it opens up endless
opportunities for fundraisers. SEQR-users can donate on the go, when a need
arises, and from the smartphone. The unique QR-code can be applied to flyers,
posters, stickers, web-site, in social media, in emails and newsletters. The
QR-code is connected to a receiving account provided by the organization. The
organizations, in the same way as merchants offering SEQR, will also
significantly decrease their transaction costs since the technology is not
connected to any card infra-structure.

- We want to make it easier for our donors and be accessible in as many large
channels as possible. Amnesty works to protect human rights for everybody and
therefore we are happy to have the opportunity to highlight our work to
SEQR-users that can donate through their site Allainsamlingar.se, says Evelina
Norberg, Fundraising Manager Amnesty International Sweden.

To donate from the SEQR-app, the user simply chooses an organization displayed
in the app, selects the amount and approves with the personal PIN. For a full
list of organizations available for donations through SEQR visit
www.allainsamlingar.se

In addition to donating to charity SEQR-users use the same app to pay in stores
and online, send money, pay for parking, connect loyalty programs and redeem
targeted offers.
