Evolve sponsors Platforms into major payment networks, including MasterCard and Visa, as well as processes payments.

Our solutions also allow FinTechs and ISOs to extend unique App and Point of Sale (POS) experiences to their End Users.
Below is our current list of solution offerings:
An account, such as a checking or savings account, where deposited funds can be withdrawn at any time.
An account that enables a Third Party or Platform to manage the assets of multiple sub-accounts for multiple End Users; the Third Party or Platform does not own the funds of the End Users.
An account created with Evolve where the End User relationship is managed through a Platform. These are subaccounts of an Omnibus account.
|KNOW YOUR CUSTOMER |
If a Platform provides a regulated financial service in the US, they are required to verify certain information about their customers. Our solution gives them the information they need to help build a secure Customer Identification Program (CIP) for their individual and business clients.
Individual – The Know Your Customer (KYC) process involves collecting and verifying data about a customer’s identity. This process mitigates fraud and creates unique customer profiles.
Business – The Know Your Business (KYB) process involves collecting and verifying data about the nature of businesses and the owners. This process verifies data and creates a record with the bank.
A method of retrieving funds from a card transaction via card networks by processing card data collected by an app, POS system, or eCommerce site.
Push To Card – Allows Platforms to “send” funds directly to consumers and small businesses via an End User’s card account.
POS and eCommerce – This solution represents a traditional card purchase transaction (or pull transaction). The End User’s card and verification data are collected by the Platform and used to initiate a pull transaction across one of the card networks. The card data and verification can be collected from a POS system or an eCommerce application.
Cash Pick Up – Enables End Users to instantly access cash at any enabled ATM using only their phone number and transaction code to receive funds. A credit/debit card, bank account or mobile app is not required for pickup.
RPPS (Remote Payment and Presentment Service) – A method of paying bills to about 95% of industry service providers in the U.S. through an electronic payment network. This solution provides customers one-stop access to comprehensive electronic routing, settlement services, billing, and Online research tools.
Network Sponsorship – In order to gain access to networks, Platforms and Third Parties must be sponsored in by a bank. Once they are sponsored into a network, the Platform or Third Party can use programs that leverage the network’s resources. We sponsor into Debit, Credit, and ATM networks for both PINned and PINless transactions. Our sponsorship networks include MasterCard, Visa, Star, NYCE, Accel, CU Alliance, as well as regional networks.
Evolve issues both Debit and credit cards into the various card networks.
|ACH (AUTOMATED CLEARING HOUSE)|
An exchange of funds between accounts of different banks through the ACH network, where one bank originates the transfer and the other receives the transfer.
Enables Platforms to print and deliver checks to End Users (consumers and businesses).
