Our communication always starts with “hi”, no matter the culture or country. So does our business. Our mission is to fundamentally change the way that people communicate, especially when they are in another country with a completely different culture and language. Communication can exist and evolve in numerous ways – for example, Chinese travelers may decide to explore Tiffany near New York. They can learn about the merchandise in their native language, and then conduct the checkout process with the simple greeting of “hi” using our Mobile App to smoothly complete the transaction.
HiFu is the first technology company in the US that empowers cross-border mobile commerce for both consumers and merchants. We provide targeted mobile promotions and discounts for those traveling from overseas to shop in U.S. premium merchants. We are still an early stage startup but have received written commitments and signed contracts with multiple leading business partners. HiFu was founded by a team of seasoned professionals with a wealth of experience in cross-border payment and commerce. We are excited and committed to make our partners and you successful.
