Vesta and Jibe Deliver Integrated Mobile Payment App

Vesta, which specialises in electronic payment solutions, and Jibe Mobile, a real-time communications platform provider, have teamed up to create an enhanced mobile payments app designed for operators and handset manufacturers, writes Eva McGarr. The two companies will showcase the app at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next week.

The collaboration, via Jibe’s ‘App to App’ platform, enables customers to top up accounts, pay bills and buy digital goods through their handsets. The offering incorporates Vesta-powered digital content and application purchases with the Jibe platform’s Rich Communication Suite (RCS). As with all Vesta’s payment solutions, the application is 100 per cent PCI (Payment Card Industry) compliant, and fully indemnifies the operator against fraud losses.

“The proliferation of applications and digital content provides an opportunity for mobile operators to create additional value from existing customers,” says Jibe Mobile CEO, Amir Sarhangi. “Our collaboration with Vesta delivers rich, integrated payment functionality in an operator-branded environment – securing the operator’s position in the content delivery chain.”

“Vesta’s industry-leading payment solutions are a perfect complement to the Jibe App to App Platform,” notes Vesta CEO, Doug Fieldhouse. “By delivering seamlessly integrated, secure payments through the handset, Vesta provides a robust foundation for developers.”
