This patent builds on our IP portfolio of generating merchant-defined, consumer-directed donations from tokenized transaction data – at no cost to the consumer,” said Chief Executive Officer Terry Tietzen. “The patent describes a virtual shopping mall that features multiple e-Commerce storefronts, each being operated by a different local merchant. A customer is incented to shop at the virtual mall by a commitment from each merchant to make a merchant-defined donation to charities selected by the customer. This multi-merchant, single-checkout ecosystem enables the customer to make one payment for their entire e-shopping cart while generating donations for their community. We are excited to be awarded this innovative patent that allows local merchants to participate in the online and offline world as they support and sustain their community.”
