Cell Phone Inventor’s Challenger Saurus.com Is Supercharged by EML’s Disruptive Payments Platform

Share this post

EML-powered Saurus.com users can instantly make a cash deposit to a nearby user of the patented and patent-pending platform. 

Social and financial inclusion programme Saurus.com from Rewire Holding has partnered with EML to power its game-changing mobile payments app available on Android and iOS. In 2020, Saurus.com raised over $2 million in its second seed funding round. Its next pre-Series A round is expected to be completed within days to fund its ambition to become a regulated entity.

 Jose Merino, CEO at Saurus.com, has a long history of successes in the tech space. The former Executive Vice-President of Operations at a Global Fortune 500-listed electronics company in Silicon Valley speaks 5 languages. In the ’90s, he invented a cell phone he sold to a listed tech company in Asia. He followed this success by signing a licencing agreement with a Fortune 500 tech giant. Jose’s philanthropic endeavours in pandemic involve a social inclusion project with a global coffee chain in Spain. Saurus is his latest brainchild.

 ”We live in a world characterised by financial legacy systems and the continued divestment of traditional financial institutions that are closing more branches. It leaves a void in the market for Saurus.com’s technology and a waiting list of individuals and businesses eager to use our convenient payments solution. As an immigrant myself, we aim to serve mainly rural communities, the Hispanic and Muslim diasporas, socially responsibly,” said Jose.

 Lee Britton, CEO Europe at EML (ASX: EML) (S&P/ASX 200) stated: ”It’s incredible to work alongside Europe’s latest FinTech driven to create a new market rather than competing with existing players. Our friend Jose is specialising in an underserved market segment backed by his intellectual property rights. EML is delighted to provide the growth-ready platform Saurus.com needs and to support its long-term goals.”

I didn't receive an e-mail

Tip: Check your spam

Sometimes our e-mails end up in spam. Make sure to check your spam folder for e-mails from The Payments Association

Tip: Check “other” tabs

Most modern e-mail clients now separate e-mails into different tabs. For example, Outlook has an “Other” tab, and Gmail has tabs for different types of e-mails, such as promotional.

Tip: Click the link within 60 minutes

For security reasons the link will expire after 60 minutes. Try submitting the login form again and wait a few seconds for the e-mail to arrive.

Tip: Only click once

The link will only work one time – once it’s been clicked, the link won’t log you in again. Instead, you’ll need to go back to the login screen and generate a new link.

Tip: Delete old login e-mails

Make sure you’re clicking the link on the most recent e-mail that’s been sent to you. We recommend deleting the e-mail once you’ve clicked the link.

Tip: Check your security policies

Some security systems will automatically click on links in e-mails to check for phishing, malware, viruses and other malicious threats. If these have been clicked, it won’t work when you try to click on the link.

Need to change your e-mail address?

For security reasons, e-mail address changes can only be complete by your Member Engagement Manager. Please contact the team directly for further help.
