LivQuik Raises Funds From Snow Leopard Technology Ventures

LivQuikMumbai based payment technology startup LivQuik has raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Snow Leopard Technology Ventures. The funds will be used to expand its team in engineering, operations and marketing.

LivQuik was founded by Mohit Lalwani and Yudhajit Nag Sen in April 2012. It provides a mobile wallet called QuikWallet that allows users to store their credit card, debit, loyalty, and prepaid cards. The app allows to make a payment by using technologies such as QR codes, NFC, or browse the store to make a payment online. The company plans to launch the app on Smartphone platforms. It is not clear which smartphone platforms they are going to target, although a video demo showcases a BlackBerry phone.

The transaction cost charged to the consumers is also not known yet. We have contacted LivQuik and will update the article once we receive a response. The company has partnered with Gloria Jeans Coffee and Mocha outlets as their launch partners allowing users to pay through their smartphone in these outlets.

For merchants, it provides APIs that can be integrated with any point of sale billing software. Apart from that, it also provides web based virtual terminal interface to merchants. For security reasons, the company claims that customer card information never enters the merchants environment.
