About the Payments Network Flexa

Flexa was founded in February 2018 as a pure-digital payments network. It claims to provide merchants and developers with simple integrations for digital asset acceptance that are fast, affordable, and completely fraud-proof.

According to the payments firm, it’s the first network to offer transactions that are fully secured from source to settlement and that are unlike a traditional bank or payment card transaction.

The payment firm added that Flexa payments don’t involve sending any sensitive customer account information via the network.

Explaining its approach to cryptocurrency in a 13th May 2019 announcement of support for crypto, Flexa wrote:


So, instead of bolting cryptocurrency payments on top of debit cards, we took the opposite approach. Over the past year, we’ve built new connections with tens of thousands of merchant point-of-sale terminals nationwide, to bypass the existing payments infrastructure and push cryptocurrency-based payment authorizations directly to merchants on your behalf.

We call these payment authorizations ‘flexcodes,’ and starting today, you can use them at some of the biggest and most forward-looking brands on the planet, each of whom were carefully curated to incorporate spending from every sector. We’re just getting started, and already you can spend your cryptocurrency on everything from apparel to entertainment and in between.
