Thursday 28 May 2020 09:11 CET | News

Maas Global, a Mobility as a Service provider, has partnered with Enfuce, a Finland-based fintech startup, to launch a card payment offering in Whim, MaaS Global’s all-inclusive mobility app.

The partnership enables MaaS Global to issue Mastercard prepaid cards and expand its offering to new markets. MaaS Global assists urban mobility by gathering all public and private transport services in traveling subscriptions.

Since its launch 2017, users of Whim have made more than eight million trips using public transport, taxis, rental bikes and cars, and other options, according to the official press release. Enfuce’s team managed the entire set-up, including a BIN Sponsorship required for issuing Mastercards.

Through the proprietary solution, Whim users can top up their card and pay for various multimodal subscriptions and pay-as-you go plans in one place. Whim cards are entirely virtual and open loop, meaning they will (over time) be accepted by any merchant via Google Pay, Apple Pay, and Samsung Pay mobile wallets.

The service is initially launching in the UK. Further market rollouts, including Singapore, are scheduled for later in 2020.
