VR Commerce at VRLA

VRLA is the world’s largest immersive technology festival – and this year, Payscout is showcasing VR Commerce and helping innovators understand the qualifications for implementing a VR Commerce strategy.

Payscout is demoing virtual reality (VR) commerce use cases for retail/etail, non-profit, sports and entertainment – and even an immersive event-registration – at VRLA, the world’s largest immersive technology festival.

Payscout CEO and Co-Founder Cleveland Brown will speak on Saturday, May 5 in the VRLA Theater (South Hall, 403AB) on the questions every innovator should ask to determine if they need a VR Commerce Strategy.

For a limited time, the Payscout VR Commerce demos will come complete with a free T-shirt for visitors at booth #612 – so if you’re attending VRLA this weekend, don’t miss your chance for a free shirt (check it on our crew above)!

Payscout at DIG SOUTH Tech Conference 2018

On Friday, April 27, Payscout CEO Cleveland Brown spoke at the DIG SOUTH Tech conference about the monetization of immersive content. Considering the recent rise in discussion around the importance of VR Commerce, the talk came at a fitting time. The audience comprised over a hundred curious participants who asked a whole range of questions about adoption of VR commerce, such as what strategies small-to-medium sized companies could employee to embrace virtual reality or how one should define the customer journey within a VR experience.

DIG SOUTH is an annual event that connects leading global brands like Oracle, IBM and Salesforce to the top tech leaders and entrepreneurs in the South. Over the last four years, DIG SOUTH has welcomed more than 5000 attendees and 800 speakers from the world’s leading brands, including Facebook, Google, BuzzFeed, IBM, Boeing, Twitter, The New York Times, Adobe, Kickstarter, VaynerMedia, Inc, Fast Company and hundreds more.

In June 2017, Payscout became the first company in the world to integrate frictionless payments tied to the fulfillment of physical goods in virtual reality. VR Commerce enables the user to have an immersive, emotional 360-degree experience before being transported to a virtual store where they can interact with products and make a frictionless payment without having to remove their headset.

Payscout Demos VR Donations with Visa at Shoptalk

At Shoptalk this year, Payscout will demo an exciting VR payment experience that shows how easy it could be for users to make a frictionless donation via Visa Checkout, the easier way to use a Visa card online, without reaching for their headsets or wallets.

Shoptalk attendees can catch an up-close experience of live skateboarding action by rolling over to Visa’s Everywhere Lounge on the showroom floor.

Visa’s Shoptalk activation will feature skateboarders on a specially constructed halfpipe – adjacent to a virtual payments lounge, where attendees can participate in a live demo showing how easy it could be to make frictionless donations in virtual reality, powered by Payscout.

In the lounge, users will be able to experience a demo wearing Google Cardboard VR headsets which takes them into a virtual world where they can experience how easy it could be to “make a donation” by using Visa Checkout without pulling out their wallet or taking off their headset.

Payscout’s payments technology in concert with Visa Checkout will allow participants to see how easy it could be to make a virtual donation.
