The revenue model is based on a recurring charge for each financial transaction processed through the Seamless platform. Cash deposits or withdrawals from the digital wallet, person-to- person transfer of funds, bill payments and purchases in retail will be services offered in the market.
The agreement will provide this mobile operator the ability to offer their over 4 million consumer clients access to several advanced payment and money transfer services. Many of these consumers are today outside any banking services and live in a primarily cash-based economy. Connected through their mobile phone number consumers can deposit cash in a digital wallet and later use it for paying for goods and services. Money Transfers between consumers is an additional service that will be made available from the start. All services can be accessed through any type of mobile phone, from the most basic handsets to modern smart phones.
"I am extremely pleased to see the result of our efforts for further building our position in the space of the strategic mobile financial services with a substantial commercial agreement.
Our comprehensive digital wallet solution is based on our proven transaction switch technology, which is handling yearly over 5 Billion transactions, will allow this telecom operator to offer banking-alike services to their subscribers. This order confirms the trust in our capabilities of handling high volumes of monetary transactions of different types" says Tommy Eriksson, CEO of Seamless.
