American Express Acquires Revolution Money: Challenges PayPal

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting American Express just announced that it plans to acquire Revolution Money for $300 million. The deal is still subject to regulatory approval. Revolution Money, which was founded by AOL’s co-founder Steve Case, launched in 2007. The company offers a number of services, including a payment and ATM card that offers discounts at participating retailers and the Revolution Money Exchange, which enables online person-to-person money transactions. It seems reasonable to assume that American Express made this acquisition to get a foothold in the online e-payment market and to challenge eBay’s PayPal.According to today’s press release, Amex hopes that this acquisition will give Revolution Money – and Amex – room to grow as it goes “head-to-head with other online and person-to-person payment providers.” Amex will put its own brand and marketing reach behind Revolution Money’s services. Chances are that Amex is mostly interested in the P2P payment system that Revolution Money has developed. It will be interesting to see what the company will do with the Revolution Money card, which, even though widely accepted, hasn’t exactly become a household name yet. Amex also plans to expand Revolution Money’s reach beyond the US.Lots of Participating Merchants – But How Many Customers?The Revolution Money card is currently accepted at about 650,000 stores in the US, including Barnes & Noble and Whole Foods. Merchants have been drawn to Revolution Money because the company charges lower fees than credit card companies. The company didn’t announce how many actual users it currently has, though just like GigaOm’s Om Malik, we still haven’t met anybody who owns a Revolution Money card. frederic lardinois Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market Tags:#news#web A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more

With 168 IOC-approved athletes, it’s already one of the biggest teams in Pyeongchang.The IOC won’t comment on individual cases, but says its invitation process was based on evidence from a newly obtained Moscow laboratory database detailing doping in previous years.Other athletes whose cases will be heard include Viktor Ahn, a six-time Olympic gold medalist in short-track speedskating, and Alexander Legkov, a cross-country skiing gold medalist.ADVERTISEMENT 2 ‘newbie’ drug pushers fall in Lucena sting NEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers MOST READ FILE – In this Feb. 15, 2014, file photo, men’s 1,000-meter short track speedskating gold medalist Viktor Ahn, of Russia, gestures while holding his medal during the medals ceremony at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.

Phillip, File)PYEONGCHANG, South Korea—Forty-five Russian athletes are still waiting to hear if they will be allowed to compete at the Pyeongchang Olympics after their appeal hearing ended Thursday without a decision.The first competitions of the games—including a U.S.-Russia curling match—had already started when the Court of Arbitration for Sport heard the cases at a luxury resort in the mountains near Pyeongchang.ADVERTISEMENT Slow and steady hope for near-extinct Bangladesh tortoises Sergei Parkhomenko, the general secretary of the Russian Bobsled Federation, said athletes from his team were training in Siberia, ready to fly to South Korea at a moment’s notice if CAS gives them the green light.“We’re hoping for a fair and logical decision from the court,” he said. “If there’s a positive ruling, they’ll fly in.”Russian officials and athletes have indicated that not all of those who have filed appeals plan to compete if they win. Some are reportedly no longer in training, while others may not be included on full rosters in sports like hockey.The six athletes who filed an appeal Thursday include two world champion speedskaters, Denis Yuskov and Pavel Kulizhnikov, plus athletes from biathlon and ski jumping.All six were originally refused invitations to compete by the IOC. All have previously served bans of various lengths for failed doping tests. The IOC had said it wouldn’t invite athletes previously banned for doping.CAS had previously said it didn’t plan to hear their case until after the Olympics.

Pietersen unlikely to return, Cook can’t handle him: Boycott

first_imgBoycott feels that Cook lacks the strong personality to handle someone like Pietersen Former England cricket team captain Geoffrey Boycott has reportedly said that an international call for Kevin Pietersen is unlikely because captain Alastair Cook “can’t handle” him.Boycott said that although Pietersen is capable of giving match-winning performances yet he can give “headaches” and therefore, one needs a captain who can handle that. He went on to say that Cook lacks the strong personality required to handle someone like Pietersen, reported Sport 24.He also said that Michael Vaughan would have handled Pietersen much better than the present England hierarchy.Thirty four-year-old Pietersen’s international career effectively ended in February following England’s 5-0 Ashes thrashing in Australia even though he was England’s all-time leading run-scorer across all formats.The move was dubbed as an attempt to support current skipper Cook.last_img read more
