New Mobile Payment Services Association announced

Orange, Telefonica Moviles, T-Mobile and Vodafone have announced that they are forming a new Mobile Payment Services Association.

For customers, the aim is to provide the opportunity to purchase a wide range of digital and physical goods and services with their mobile phones using an easy, secure solution. The solution aims to become the industry standard for m-commerce payments. Merchants and merchant acquirers will benefit from a standard set of interfaces through which they will gain access to a potentially huge international customer base. Software and solution vendors will benefit from published technical interfaces enabling the development of compliant m-payment products and services. Operators will benefit from a standard way of integrating and efficiently managing their relationships with merchants, merchant acquirers and content providers.

Former NatWest executive Tim Jones will be CEO of this new organization.
