SocialPlay USA Combines the Strengths of its Two Subsidiaries – Spot&Pay and Friendship Socks – to Take advantage of the Booming Fintech Sector to Drive E-Commerce Sales


LAS VEGAS, June 26, 2017

SocialPlay USA, Inc. (OTC: SPLY), (“SocialPlay” or the “Company”) http://www.socialplayusa.com, announces an update to shareholders following its recently announced deals to acquire Spot&Pay Inc. (“Spot&Pay”) http://www.spotandpay.com, developer of a unique and robust consumer mobile payment application predicated on the rapidly expanding use of QR codes for individual product purchases, charitable giving, and bill payment options, and Friendship Socks Inc. (“Friendship Socks” or FS”) http://www.friendshipsocks.com, an online consumer products and gifting company.

Fintech is short for Financial Technologies, a term applied to 21st century technology innovations used in the back end of consumer based financial transactions in the Ecommerce and online community. Fintech products and strategies are intended to provide ease of use and enhanced security to consumers of online goods and services.

SocialPlay is incorporating the Spot&Pay mobile payment application software into the backend payment & fulfillment processing of online gifting company Friendship Socks. This highly synergistic move will showcase the technology and Ecommerce abilities of both subsidiary companies which will widen exposure and increase sales for both entities.  

According to SocialPlay CEO, Robert Rosner, Both Spot&Pay and Friendship Socks occupy unique spaces in the online Ecommerce world by virtue of how they utilize social media to drive the success of their individual operations. By combining the two under the SocialPlay umbrella, we expect to see a more rapid and sustained growth pattern over the next twelve months in terms of client acquisition, technology adoption, and increased sales.

About Friendship Socks Inc. 

Friendship Socks is a company that offers its line of unique designer socks, proudly manufactured in the USA, and markets its products through its quickly expanding online community. The company leverages social media to connect people more substantially through the gifting of a simple pair of socks, something everyone can use and appreciate every day. The process is very easy and involves a customer purchasing a pair of socks for themselves through the website while at the same time also gifting a free pair to a friend of their choosing. This free pair gift purchase is embedded within a message that can be sent through any social media platform the buyer wishes. The friend then clicks on the link provided in the social media message, enters their shipping information, and waits for their socks to arrive in the mail. The recipient is now part of the Friendship Socks community and can then purchase a pair to surprise one of their friends and so on and so on. Friendship Socks refers to this as “Pairing it Forward”, helping connect friends from across the street to around the world. The result is strengthened connections and stronger friendship bonds. The company offers a one-time purchase as well as a subscription service, where every month the customer receives a new pair and would get to choose a new friend to send a surprise pair to. This provides Friendship Socks the unique opportunity to connect with multiple customers through one initial purchase. Those familiar with the success of Dollar Shave Club (sold to Unilever for a reported $1 Billion) will recognize the potential Friendship Socks has in creating a large and dedicated consumer following. This increased social media engagement creates exponentially expanding customer acquisitions while automatically increasing recurring sales revenue.

About Spot&Pay 

Spot&Pay is a mobile payment application that is used in connection with third party QR codes that have been generated for specific uses; i.e. individual consumer products, specific services or group of services offered to the general public, B2B product and service offerings, monetary donations to charitable organizations, and quick and easy bill payments on recurring monthly accounts.

QR codes allow consumers a quick, simple, and paperless method of making purchases, donating to their favorite charity, and paying bills. The process relies on setting up a Spot&Pay mobile payment account attached to a credit card or direct debit account and then simply scanning a QR code with a mobile device for a particular product or service the consumer wishes to purchase. The Spot&Pay application will instantly facilitate the order and purchase of the product associated with the QR code and pay for it from the pre-designated method of payment set up by the user.
