Company Summary

PayGuard is a global payments service that will give people who are under-banked the ability to make and accept payments in cash instantly using the internet. We do this by integrating our escrow-secured platform to the cross-border networks used by international money transfer companies. It will also empower merchants and marketplaces worldwide to serve customers who can only pay cash for online purchases.
