Who is Mobile Payment for?

Our mobile payment offer is designed for developed and semi-developed markets. It directly addresses the needs of banks, mobile network operators (MNOs), payment service providers and retailers.

Benefits for Banks

Mobile Payment solutions enable remote and proximity payments for digital and physical goods and services, whether in-store or online, using the mobile device.
Mobile Payment creates value for service providers by:

  • Creating new sources of revenue from m-commerce, including digital and physical goods, micro and macro-payments
  • Stimulating the existing customer base with value-added-services, and reducing churn
  • Extending market reach to new customer segments through prepaid payment schemes
  • Providing instant issuance of mobile wallets, removing barriers to customer adoption and enabling viral distribution
  • For retailers, mobile payment provides a “face” to previously anonymous customers, allowing retailers to enhance the payment experience with focused offers, benefits and added-value services on top of the standard transaction.

Benefits for End-Users

Mobile payment offers end-users the mobility, flexibility, absolute security and convenience to carry out payments from the mobile device, in place of traditional payment instruments like cash, cards and cheques. End-users will not have to disclose sensitive account and card data upon payment, rather transition into a one-click payment experience for:

  • Person to Person transfers (Peer-to-Peer)
  • Online payments
  • Bill payment
  • Remote and proximity merchant payments
  • Cross-border money transfer (international remittance)

End-users can leave their wallets at home, as they'll only need their mobile phone to make payments. Rewards and offers linked to the customer's specific payment habits and shopping needs can be delivered directly to the mobile phone.

What's in Our Offer?

Gemalto's Mobile Payment solution creates a real-life wallet experience, securely bundling together cards, bank accounts, prepaid value, and other traditional payment instruments, to allow simple payment from the mobile device; The mobile phone can thus replace credit and debit cards, tickets, cheques and cash for most purposes. It also provides a wallet for digital receipts, coupons, vouchers, loyalty /gift cards, boarding passes and much more. Moreover, the mobile wallet can also offer access to the mobile network operator's billing systems for direct-to-bill charges.

With mobile payment, the phone, coupled with secure mobile wallet credentials known only to the customer, represents the customer's various funding sources in any type of payment transaction and over any digital channel. The solution provides 2-two-factor authentication for securely carrying out payments to merchants, money transfers to friends and family domestically or overseas, paying bills and shopping online – all without exposing sensitive account details or card data.

Beyond managing the full range of payment transactions, the Gemalto Mobile Payment solution enables issuance of pre-paid accounts that draw on stored value. Customers load the accounts with money from P2P transfers, cash deposits or bank/card transfers – and then use the prepaid value at any affiliated merchants. Unique benefits, perks and loyalty programs help drive the use of these accounts, which are widely popular with youth, the under-banked, unbanked and immigrant populations, while also being highly appealing to customers with spending concerns or limited credit.
