Combined Companies Deliver Powerful Marketing and Financial Solutions for SMBs

The new combination of The Robinhood Group now has all of the necessary tools and strategies on how to properly target their use in order to maximize the benefit to its small business clients.

Portland, United States - June 12, 2019 /PressCable/ —

Portland, Oregon, June 12, 2019 – The Robinhood Group, Inc. and Dinero Funding, LLC joined forces in May 2019 to add the strengths of both entities under The Robinhood Group brand, which serves the small to medium size business markets (SMBs) in the US. Prior to this combination, Dinero Funding primarily focused on providing Cash Discount Credit Card Processing (at zero cost to the business for accepting credit cards), POS solutions and business funding services. Alternatively, The Robinhood Group was formed to provide social media management, online reputation management, search engine optimization services. Now the combined strengths of both entities provides small business owners the opportunity to work with just one company that can effectively deliver revenue generating and expense saving solutions; eliminating the need for multiple service providers. The added benefit from working with The Robinhood Group’s bundled service solution, is that it adds significant value and cost savings to clients across the US.

Following this merger, The Robinhood Group now has the ability to offer Cash Discount Merchant Card Processing services that do not cost the business owner anything to accept credit cards. The Robinhood Group’s affiliated banking partners are saving approximately 17,000 business owners over $4 billion annually in credit card processing fees, and the number of businesses that are switching to Cash Discount Merchant Processing is growing exponentially.

Since the early 1960’s, the credit card industry began forming monopoly-like business practices where they convinced business owners that it was worth paying fees to accept credit cards as a form of payment (versus currency) while also charging fees and interest to cardholders. This trend of aggressively marketing the use of credit cards instead of cash, has increasingly cost retail business owners a substantial portion of their profits.

The Robinhood Group’s financial affiliates capitalized on the terms of the recent 6.2 billion dollar settlement of the anti-trust suit brought against Visa and MasterCard by 19 national retailers, including the top one percent, such as: Home Depot, Kroger, Target, and Walmart in 2005. The revised terms of the Dodd Frank law allows the option for retail merchants to either pay for accepting credit cards or not. Roger D. Cruise, Co-Founder and President of The Robinhood Group, stated: “With the ever increasing costs of operating a retail business, I strongly believe in the fact that our services can lead to a ‘profitable life’ for small businesses, depending upon whether they opt for our type of strategic solutions, or not. The average person doesn’t realize how thin the net profit margin is for a majority of retail establishments. Between rising rents, utilities, mandatory wage increases, product costs and tax increases, small businesses are getting financially squeezed by multiple factors. By driving top line sales growth and eliminating the swipe fees for accepting credit cards, our clients could experience as much as a 25%-75% increase in their net profits – money that can be reinvested into marketing, new product development, and enhancing their customer’s experience.”

The Robinhood Group is also now able to provide access to non-recourse loans and lines of credit to small business owners. The guidelines for qualifying provide more flexibility to the business owner, and typically do not require personal guarantees. “For any business, having access to funding options provides the flexibility to navigate both up and down economic cycles and provides the opportunity to invest into business expansion. According to the SBA, small businesses create two-thirds of net new jobs in the US. These hard-working entrepreneurs are who we are dedicated to serve; they are the lifeblood of our American economy, and we have all of the tools necessary to make sure they succeed” stated Co-founder and Vice President, Pamela Matson.

ESSEN, Germany — How do you teach tech-savvy kids to safely navigate the digital world? In Germany, you bring in the teenagers.

Apple previews new software as it diversifies beyond iPhones

Jun 18, 2019

SAN JOSE, Calif. — Apple, beset by falling iPhone sales, announced upcoming changes to its phone and computer software intended to highlight its new digital services and to further position it as a defender of personal privacy. The revisions previewed Monday during a conference in San Jose, California, included a new feature that will let people log into apps and other services with an Apple ID instead of relying on similar sign-in options from Facebook and Google — two companies that mine data to sell advertising. Apple said it won't collect tracking information about users from that service. As part...

Virtual reality helps police learn to interact with autistic

Jun 18, 2019

WASHINGTON — An autistic man walks out of a store without paying for a toy he picked up. He's followed by a storekeeper demanding he come back inside.

Officers arrive, their patrol car's lights flashing and sirens blaring, to find the man in the parking lot, yelling and not responding to their commands. They have a choice: confront the man and risk having the situation turn violent or regroup to figure out a different approach. The scenario is part of a virtual reality simulation for police that's being developed by Axon —...

Anti-groping smartphone app highly popular in Japan

Jun 18, 2019

TOKYO — A smartphone app developed by Japanese police is being widely downloaded by women trying to protect themselves from gropers on packed rush-hour trains. The "Digi Police" app was originally issued by Tokyo police three years ago, but a function to scare off molesters was only added a few months ago. Since then, the app has reportedly been downloaded hundreds of thousands of times — unusual for a government-developed mobile application. Women in crowded trains and other public places in Japan often face sexual harassment, but are typically too afraid to call out for help. With the app, victims...

Nonprofits turn to cryptocurrency to help needy Venezuelans

Jun 18, 2019

BARQUISIMETO, Venezuela — Andreina Cordero started the year skipping meals so her three kids could eat. Her husband, a construction worker, was out of a job. And the family's savings had been devastated by the nation's hyperinflation, limiting Cordero's children to a diet of rice, beans, pasta and fried corn patties. But the family got a break from their daily struggle to feed themselves this spring when a social worker enrolled them in a program run by a Silicon Valley startup that is donating cryptocurrency to hundreds of Venezuelan families. Every week from February to April, Cordero received a deposit...
