The idea is to gather a variety of retailers under the banner of Help Worldwide, says Don Dunbar, Nietech's president and CEO.
A shopper could allocate a rebate to any program registered with Help Worldwide from any store in the network. That means a Sacramentan traveling to New York or internationally could seek out the Help Worldwide logo on a storefront, use the card when buying something, and automatically support a Sacramento program with the rebate. It's just getting started, Dunbar says, but he's already working on partnerships in Mexico and Germany. For such a system to work, the cards have to act essentially like a credit card. In fact, the cards pass through the same reader to collect customer and beneficiary information, and the cards are verified through the MasterCard network, Dunbar says. The bank identification number on the card is programmed not to allow it to be used for actual purchases, only as an auxiliary card so that the rebate can be credited to the right program. Using such a system addresses security issues. In this case, the information collected is the identification of the merchant and the cardholder, and the date and amount spent, but no breakdown by item purchased. "What we provide for the merchants is a report - what ZIP codes their customers are coming from and what they are spending," Dunbar says.
