Another point, when you allow 3rd party vendors access to your data systems, including payment systems, it is a disaster in the making. http://www.knoxnews.com/knoxville/food-and-dining/8-colorado-stores-among-216-nationwide-affected-by-jimmy-johns-data-breach CurrentC just amplifies the risk. It is one stop shopping for the would be thief and has potentially thousands of entry points (one for each participant and many times more for those where any 3rd party has access...

Dismal financial report. I wonder, though, did they take a write-off operating income to reflect recent litigation awards to Apple?
You have to ask yourself these questions if you are a merchant:1. For Walmart (and CVS, RiteAid and similar), is their primary customer base sophisticated enough to use CurrentC and do they pay by credit card, debit card, or cash primarily?
