About Us
​​We were inspired by the simple idea that online shopping should be a simple and secure experience. As avid everyday consumers, we should be rewarded with an enjoyable shopping experience, void of worry that our credit card and personal information might someday fall into the wrong hands.    
    
The team at VRAY is working diligently on our first product to transform the current landscape for online retailers and consumers alike. With the introduction of white-labeled VRAY technology, consumers will be able to enjoy a simple and secure online shopping experience on any devices, without giving out card number to anyone. While consumers enjoy the perks of simple and secure online shopping, retailers will also benefit from revenue increases, reductions in data breaches and chargebacks.
