Weird business model. Like having a guy standing between you and the cash register so you don't hand them the money directly.

Isn’t that what Visa and Mastercard are as well?

They were pretty far ahead of their time with peer to peer payments, especially in the US. Made it also a lot easier for people to exchange cash for goods in the eBay type e-commerce space. Not a lot of companies had those abilities. Hell the fucking banks in the US didn't want to start direct ach payments until Zelle became a thing. They've since expanded their services to a couple different arms in tech.

But the guy isn't behind a cash register and I'm not handing them any cash.

So what the fuck are you on about
