iMobile3s PassMarket, Ingenico deploy a m-payments platform

Monday 13 January 2014 08:52 CET | News

iMobile3, a US provider of tablet and smartphone services, has partnered with Ingenico, a global provider of payment services, to deliver a platform for mobile payments at the point of sale using Bluetooth LE (BLE) devices, or ‘beacons’.

iMobile3’s PassMarket is a cloud-based multi-wallet platform to support Apple Passbook and Google Wallet. iMobile3 introduced mobile payments by integrating its US Patent Pending PassMarket Beacon technology into Ingenico’s Telium-based family of payment devices.

By combining Bluetooth low energy beacons with PassMarket, merchants can gather micro-location data about consumers while they are located inside a merchant’s store. Doing so provides merchants with ways to deliver special offers, increment loyalty programs, and accept mobile payments.

In recent news, Ingenico has entered a strategic partnership with US-based software services provider Starmount.
