(OTCQB: FPAY, “FlexShopper”), a leading national online lease-to-own (“LTO”) retailer and LTO payment solution provider, today announced that it was ranked the 18th fastest growing mobile e-commerce company as part of Internet Retailer’s 2017 Mobile 500® report. FlexShopper’s rapid mobile-revenue growth, which Internet Retailer reported as 100.3%, and leadership in bringing online the traditional rent-to-own, store-based model led to the Company ranking 298th on the Mobile 500 list and 30th in FlexShopper’s primary merchandise category of computers and electronics.
