PingDuoDuo completes beta test and went live on February 15, 2019
HONG KONG, Feb. 19, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Finger Motion, Inc. (OTC Markets: FNGR), a mobile payment and recharge platform company, is pleased to announce that its top-up platform for China Unicom, which derives a majority of its Gross Transaction Volume (GTV) from PingDuoDuo (PDD), is fully operational, generating 20 million RMB (USD 3.0 million) in GTV daily. This is a considerable increase in the daily platform activity, which had previously generated 13.25 million RMB (USD 1.95 million) in GTV.
Finger Motion is pleased to report the cooperation deal with PDD hit its first milestone by successfully completing the beta test this past week, with results exceeding expectations. The internal reports show no data loss, no security breaches, and no degradation in transaction speed. With the open platform being extremely stable and having the fastest average transaction speed of all the top tier top-up wholesalers, commercialization began ahead of schedule. From the onset, there were no bottlenecks and the platform was operational on the busiest day of the year (ie. the day before Chinese New Year).
“We are so fortunate to have such excess demand that our only limitation is access to capital,” said Martin Shen, CEO of Finger Motion. “We are operating at our maximum level given our capital limitations and we are negotiating with a number of equity and debt lenders. We are aware that our story is compelling to Wall Street, so we are focused on non-dilutive financing options. We believe we are the best in breed in comparison to our other wholesale competitors since our platform is open, able to onboard any e-commerce platform, extremely reliable, and much faster. We are also forward-thinking, and have prepared our platform to be compatible with the 5G technology that is expected to be available later this year.”
“Our business model is very simple and predictable and most importantly scalable - with sufficient liquidity, as long as we keep our servers running, we generate revenue. And given our current performance, we have accelerated our plans to uplist and are currently waiting on feedback from OTC Markets.”
PingDuoDuo is an innovative e-commerce platform based in China which offers consumers a fun and interactive shopping experience that also offers bargain pricing.
