WHAT:

The world’s newest mobile checkout and cloud wallet apps will make their global debut at the Deep Ellum Art Festival’s Deep Ellum Texas Village this weekend. The Deep Ellum Community Association, as well as several exhibiting companies, will use Dallas-based Tantrum Street’s Cartwheel Register mobile checkout app to conduct transactions without the use of a card swiper. The app instead uses a smartphone or tablet’s camera to read credit and debit cards.

For attendees, Tantrum’s Skip Wallet cloud-based digital wallet app will be available for free download and use at the event, and for use at any accepting merchant nationwide. Consumers can store their major credit and debit cards in Skip Wallet, and the app will soon accept loyalty and gift cards as well. Users don’t need a physical card—or even their phone—to make a purchase. They just need their Skip Wallet Payname and PIN.

Skip Wallet promotes payments with a conscience by participating in the Good Returns social enterprise network. At each Skip Wallet transaction, Tantrum Street and the customer directly fund a small portion of a microloan facilitated by Good Returns.

Skip Wallet is available on the Apple App Store at: http://bit.ly/QIBiEj
