With MOBB the mobile phone can be used as a secure and convenient way to manage and pay with your cards.

“We are proud that Borica and the participating banks chose us and our mobile security technology for the MOBB mobile payment service. This is yet another, and very good, example on how our technology enables new, and innovative, mobile financial, and mobile security services”, says Stefan Hultberg, CEO and co-founder of Accumulate.

The mobile payment service includes services like payment in shop, and is built on the existing infrastructure of POS-terminals and clearing and settlement systems. Payments are handled as ordinary card transactions, and the service works on most mobiles without the need for added hardware. At start the service will be available on Android, iPhone and Windows Phone.
