Renah Persofsky, CEO of Dexit, Inc. (Dexit) has to make several critical decisions of the

company's new electronic payment system for retail transactions. First, she and her team would

have to decide which merchants and consumers the Dexit service would target. Second, she had

to determine whether any additions or changes needed to be made to the product itself. Third, she

had to decide on a pricing strategy and finally, she needs to come-up with a promotional plan to

reach target audience and decide between a regional launch or a national launch in several major

Canadian Cities. In essence, she has to come-up with a concrete marketing plan for Dexit.

The proposed system would be based on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology.

The choice of this system is critical for this product because it would enable a wireless

payment system that would decrease the transaction time compared to a traditional credit

card processing time.

payment using debt card
