May 07, 2012

ORLANDO – Kony Solutions, the leading mobile application development platform (MADP) provider, announced that it is the first mobile platform provider to support the new MasterCard PayPass Wallet Services.  Kony customers and partners can provide their consumers with a faster, easier and consistent shopping experience, in stores or online, by allowing consumers to securely pay with a simple click of the mouse, touch of the tablet screen or tap of the smartphone.

"Kony enables its customers and partners to deliver superior mobile experiences to their end consumers and enterprise users,” said Robin Kearon, vice president, Channels & Alliances for Kony. “MasterCard’s flexible approach to mobile commerce aligns with our industry leading mobile application development platform and industry applications to provide users with a true mobile experience on every phone, browser or tablet without compromise. Together we are improving the mobile shopping experience."

“Consumers are looking to pay for goods when, how and where they choose. Merchants want flexibility to easily accept digital payments so they can convert more browsers to buyers both online and in store,” said Ed McLaughlin, chief emerging payments officer, MasterCard. “PayPass Wallet Services simplifies the shopping experience while providing flexibility and choice to banks, consumers and merchants.”

PayPassWallet Services include: 

  • PayPass Acceptance Network (PayPass Online and PayPass Contactless) – A globally consistent way to help merchants accept electronic payments across multiple channels whether the purchase is made in a store at the point of sale with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology or online using a computer, tablet or smartphone.
  • PayPassWallet – A full suite of digital wallet solutions enabling banks, merchants and partners to white label their own wallets. It makes online shopping safe and easy by allowing consumers to store payment and shipping information in one convenient and secure place. The Wallet is open so consumers can use American Express, Discover, Visa and other branded credit, debit and prepaid cards.
  • PayPassAPI – Allows partners to connect their own digital wallets into the PayPass Acceptance Network, leveraging MasterCard’s check-out, fraud detection and authentication services and enabling their customers to make purchases wherever PayPass is accepted – online and in store.
