Exciting news! Fanbank is now Plink™, a new brand to better reflect the new ways we're striving to make commerce more personal.
Some of the content below uses our old name, but discusses the same quality solutions that we have always provided to our customers, partners and community.
Plink is an online platform that enables small businesses to create and grow commerce transactions with target customers right in their own neighborhood.
