Business-to-business buyers at the Canadian subsidiary of Staples can now use a one-click mobile payments app.

Staples Canada is rolling out the TreviPay mobile app to offer a mobile app payment experience to its pre-approved business-to-business credit customers. The app provides buyers with access buy-now-pay-later (BNPL)/trade financing in-store via an intuitive mobile app, eliminating the need and fraud risk for Staples Canada to issue multiple credit cards to purchasers within an organization.

 In one click, business-to-business customers can gain access to their pre-authorized credit line by generating a unique code to be scanned at point-of-sale. Purchase details/terms are then stored in the app’s purchase history and sent directly to the buyers’ company, offering buyers the same immediate execution as a contactless business-to-consumer transaction.

 Staples Canada is leveraging the new offering online and at over 300 stores across Canada. The retailer’s authorized purchasers are now able to shop seconds after credit downloading the Staples Commercial Account app, rather than waiting for a physical card to arrive in the mail.

The company’s efforts to better serve its business customers also include the fall 2020 launch of a new store design which combines retail and working space.

 “The Staples Commercial Account app powered by TreviPay has already seen strong uptake and success for our in-store business-to-business customers in the first few weeks post-integration,” said David Boone, CEO of Staples Canada. “By enhancing the business-to-business purchasing experience at online check-out and in-store point-of-sale, we continue to elevate technology in order to make shopping with us much easier for thousands of our business customers.”
