Additional services, including bill payments, POS payments, prepaid cards and other services will be added to the wallet. In exchange for its services, SurePay will pay Mobetize an integration fee and receive a variable fee per transaction based on volumes and types of financial service provided. Discussions on integration have begun with several banks in the UAE, with service expected to commence during the beginning of 2015.
