Plastiq Unveils World’s First Credit Card Number Translation Device


Plastiq’s new ‘swipe-and-send’ device saves consumers from manually entering their credit card number online.

San Francisco, Calif. (April 1, 2019)Plastiq™, the best way to pay bills by credit card, today announced the launch of the world’s first fully-connected credit card number translation device. The KnuQlebuster™ quickly captures and transmits a consumer’s credit card number using industry-leading technology.

The Perfect Solution for Today’s Connected Consumer

Today, 80% of Plastiq™ members say they despise manually entering their credit card number when paying their bills online, according to an 2019 Plastiq™ study. The KnuQlebuster™ is a compelling solution that is as simple to use as ‘swiping and sending’.

A user simply places their credit card in the KnuQlebuster™ and swipes “right-left” on the capture bar. Their card information is then auto-magically transmitted to Plastiq™ for processing, through an always-on 5G cellular connection.

Plastiq’s patent-pending capture bar contains an optical reader and a manual imprinter, ensuring 99.87% readability on the first swipe (when used in conjunction with the optional QarbonQopy™ accessory).

“It’s groundbreaking,” says Plastiq™ Principal Hardware Designer, April DuBois. “We created 24 prototypes and tested its durability through 37,014 repeated swipes. We’re confident that we have built the most rugged, yet easiest-to-use, credit card number translator on the market.”
