- The mobile payment solution boon. is being integrated into the customer card app mobile-pocket
Wirecard, one of the leading specialists for payment processing and issuing, is beginning a collaboration with the company bluesource - mobile solutions gmbh. This cooperation will integrate Wirecard's mobile payment solution boon into the customer card app mobile-pocket. By linking both applications, consumers can use mobile-pocket to manage customer cards and vouchers as well as to make payments via boon - this gives users an all-in-one shopping experience. This collaboration is to initially be launched in Germany and Austria and could in future be expanded to cover further countries, including France and the UK.
As a digital loyalty app, mobile-pocket bundles together customer, club and advantage cards as well as coupons and vouchers, which can all be redeemed by the user directly at the point of sale (POS). In addition, the integration of boon adds a link to the mobile payment solution for all merchants listed in the app which operate Mastercard Contactless acceptance points. This allows users to call up customer cards, redeem vouchers or make payments all within the app. boon opens directly within the mobile-pocket app and is easy to use for POS payments with an Android smartphone.
Georg von Waldenfels, Executive Vice President Consumer Solutions at Wirecard: "Our intention is to continually connect boon to innovative services. This collaboration with mobile-pocket represents an important step in opening up boon to customer loyalty programmes. This means we can offer our users much more than just another payment option."
Wolfgang Stockner, CEO at bluesource: "Above all we value forward-looking and interconnected thought processes and actions. Our cooperation with Wirecard and the integration of their mobile payment app boon allows us to offer our customers increased value added in the app and to improve the user experience."
A fully digitised prepaid Mastercard, issued by Wirecard Card Solutions, forms the basis of boon. Credit can be loaded conveniently via credit card or bank transfer. This mobile payment solution can be used by anyone who owns an NFC-enabled Android smartphone with OS 4.4 or above.
