WorldPay Launches Mobile Payments Solution
April 21, 2011
WorldPay recently announced a partnership that will enable the U.K.-based processor to process any type of mobile payment, including remote and online payments. The company launched a mobile payment reseller program based on CellPoint Mobile’s mPoint mobile payment solution. Via the agreement, WorldPay said it will tailor its offering specifically for the retail and transportation industries. “As a global leader in payment processing, WorldPay has seized the opportunity to spearhead the mobile payment channel,” said Kristian Gjerding, CEO of CellPoint Mobile. “This means retailers and transport providers can offer a simple, secure way of payment through the consumer’s preferred device.” The company seeks a piece of the $984 billion in worldwide mobile transactions that it said Yankee Group predicts by 2014.
