Wednesday 1 September 2021 15:21 CET | News

Fomo Pay, a Singapore-based payment service provider, has obtained Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) licences to operate 3 more regulated activities.

Starting from September 2021, merchants will be able to leverage Fomo Pay's services to accept and process payment transactions. Fomo Pay will also be able to carry out local money transfer services in Singapore for its clients, as well as facilitate transactions with digital payment tokens, including cryptocurrency and the central bank digital currency (CBDC).

CBDCs are digital currencies that are backed by central banks. They have been gaining attention for their potential to improve cross-border payments. With the new licences, Fomo Pay is now able to conduct four out of seven key regulated activities under the payment services act licensing framework. Previously, the company obtained a cross-border transfer services licence from MAS.

Fomo Pay was founded in 2015 and started by connecting online and offline merchants to digital payment methods such as e-wallets and credit cards. Today, it services more than 10,000 merchants spanning the retail, telecom, tourism and hospitality, food and beverage, education and ecommerce industries.
