Its white-labelled solutions are marketed globally to merchants, banks, fintechs and merchant service providers. Certified according to market standards, Dejamobile solutions enable them to offer innovative and certified digital payment solutions based on the latest technologies (NFC, HCE, Token, QR Code).
Market Pay and Dejamobile have already successfully partnered pre-acquisition by developing PayWish, an innovative service for mobile purchasing experiences through a contactless payment application on Android smartphones and tablets.
