Paysafe, a leading specialized payments platform, has expanded its omnichannel payments offering for Bump 50:50, the Sportech division providing a digital raffle solution to sports and nonprofit charity foundations. As North American in-stadium sports return, fans will be able to enter raffles safely and securely through Paysafe-processed contactless card payments at points of sale (POS) from Handpoint, a pioneer in defining integrated payments.

The current COVID-19 pandemic has driven strong growth in contactless payments in the U.S. market. Fifty-nine percent of American consumers are happier making an in-person payment using an NFC-enabled card than they were a year ago, according to Paysafe’s April 2020 research.

Responding to this trend and innovating during the current shutdown of in-stadium spectator sports, Paysafe and Bump 50:50 have brought to market the charitable raffle space’s first fully integrated contactless payments solution. When fans return to stadiums, Bump 50:50’s partners, which include the foundations of over 120 professional, collegiate and nonprofit organizations (numbering dozens of NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL teams), can enable them to purchase raffle tickets from in-venue sales staff using card tap-and-pay at Handpoint’s lightweight mobile POS terminals.

Transactions are processed seamlessly through the proprietary Bump 50:50 application installed on in-stadium sellers’ mobile tablets. The contactless enhancement is supported by both Android and Apple iOS versions of the solution’s app.

Paysafe’s omnichannel offering also allows sports fans to win raffle prizes and raise money for charities by using Bump 50:50’s online platforms at home or on-the-go via their own mobile devices, with all card-not-present transactions processed by Paysafe.

Carla Erlick, Senior Vice President, ISV Channel at Paysafe, said: “Sportech’s Bump 50:50 has become one of our flagship independent software vendor (ISV) partners, truly showcasing our omnichannel payments offering. Further complementing our card-not-present payments relationship with Bump 50:50, we’re delighted to strengthen our card-present support for Bump 50:50’s partners to better meet the new North American reality of in-person transactions.”

David Kurland, President of Sportech’s Bump 50:50, commented: “Bump 50:50 is pleased to offer our partners contactless pay through our integration with Paysafe. This is one more example of Bump 50:50’s continuous pursuit of new technologies and platform enhancements designed to help our partners reach their fundraising goals. We are also mindful of the fact that contactless pay is especially critical at this time, as our partners are developing safety protocols that will help them return to in-person events.”

Google has removed the Paytm App, one of India’s biggest digital payment apps, for several hours from its online store for breaching gambling rules, a day before the start of the Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket tournament.

Betting is illegal in India, but the countdown to the 53-day IPL has seen a profusion of online ads for fantasy sports sites, which are allowed in many parts of the country. Paytm had recently launched a fantasy cricket tournament that involved cash bets and violated the Google Play Store’s policies.

“Today afternoon, we received communication from Google that they are suspending our app because they believe this to be a violation of their Play Store policies on gambling,” the company said.

However, the app was back on the platform Friday evening after removing a “cashback” feature on “a recently-launched game on the application,” the Press Trust of India reported.

“Update: And we’re back!” Paytm tweeted.
