Upstate New York-based Adirondack Trust Company is now offering Bling Nation’s mobile payments system to its customers and community.
Customers with a checking account at Adirondack Trust can now sign up for a BlingTag, a quarter-sized sticker that is applied to the back of their mobile phone to enable mobile payments.
Customers can also use the tag to redeem loyalty incentives from participating retailers and receive transaction and account balance text messages at the point of sale.
Participating businesses in the Saratoga Springs, Glens Falls and Ballston Spa area include: the Bread Basket Bakery, the Hungry Spot Café, Impressions of Saratoga, N. Fox Jewelers, Putnam Market, The Chocolate Mill, Saratoga Salsa and Spice Co., Compliments to the Chef, Menges & Curtis and the Country Corner Café.
Each of these businesses will be able to set up their own loyalty program in which Bling Nation tracks loyalty activities and accrued points, automatically applying them at the point of sale.
