On December 13th, social media platform Gab announced the launch of GabPay, an alternative to “Woke-Left” credit card payment processors in an effort to cement what the platform refers to as the “Parallel Economy.”
“Today marks a great day as we can process credit cards for Canada, Europe, Panama, and of course the US,” the platform announced.
“If you accept credit cards as a payment method, who does your processing? Does a Woke-Left side processor handle your credit card payments? It’s time to join [Andrew Torba] and the #ParallelEconomy and hop on GabPay for your credit card services. If you are interested in switching over now, use this link to fill out the Pre-App gab.money and please make sure to put GabPayPayton as your GabPay rep. Shoot me a private message if you would like to learn more.”
Apparently, some inquiries came pouring in regarding the manner in which GabPay would function, with some asking if there was a similar function to that of services like PayPal. The official Gab account for GabPay responded to those questions, saying that are some similarities between the two services, but also some relevant contrasts.
“Many people are asking if GabPay is similar to PayPal,” the Gab account said. “In a way yes, we handle credit/debit card transactions. On a business’s E-commerce website, if you are processing with the woke PayPal, it will redirect your customer to PayPal’s site to make the payment.
“GabPay’s credit card service integrates with Shopify, WooCommerce, BigCommerce, Wix, and over 150 more. We will not make your customers be redirected to another site, therefore entering in their credit/debit card number on YOUR site.”
For some time, Gab CEO Torba has urged his followers – and is taking active steps himself – toward establishing a parallel economy. Back in a February blog post, Torba remarked that people must embrace the idea of exiting “this broken and failing system and start building a new one immediately.”
With the ushering in of GabPay, it appears that Torba’s vision of having such a parallel economy has now been afforded one of the many pivotal pillars to ensuring a fully-functional alternative to the status quo economy where one can have the rug pulled out from underneath them at any given moment.
