Bango has recently agreed a strategic partnership with CardMobili, the leading provider of advanced digital wallet technologies.

We will be working together to develop a series of innovative mobile commerce solutions for Mobile Network Operators (MNOs). These include bringing carrier billing to the retail environment for the first time, and a unique new proposition that unites the digital app world with physical shopping. A key focus is to enable MNOs to leverage their large subscriber base and existing billing relationships to open up new revenue streams.

By integrating Bango’s payment technology with CardMobili’s digital wallet platform, consumers will be able to purchase physical goods via their existing mobile phone accounts, for example by redeeming discounts and pre-paying for menu deals, buying gift cards, or purchasing coupons.

CardMobili has been innovating in the digital wallet sector for a number of years, making the company one of the most experienced players in this rapidly evolving market.
