“We heard the strong call for integrated payments in our industry, and we are delighted to partner with PayFacto, given its impressive track record of growth,” said Danny Roy, Founder and CEO of Resto Finances. “This collaboration between PayFacto, Posera, and ourselves means that our merchants are the main beneficiaries of all resulting innovations, ultimately enabling them to reach their full potential.”
