Mobile payments firm teams with Paydiant

New partnership aims to accelerate the development of mobile commerce platform

MCX, a growing mobile commerce firm, has announced that it has partnered with Paydiant, a provider of mobile payments solutions. MCX has been working to develop and launch its own mobile payments platform since 2012. This platform was expected to launch in late 2013, but MCX opted to push back the launch for several reasons. In partnering with Paydiant, MCX believes that its platform can be made better and more capable of handling the needs of consumers and businesses.Mobile Payments Partnership - MCX and Paydiant

MCX to make use of Paydiant technology and services

The MCX platform is to make use of Paydiant’s cloud-based solution in order to make its mobile commerce features more robust. Using a cloud-based platform is also expected to help provide a higher degree of security to the platform, alleviating some of the concerns that consumers have in terms of mobile commerce. The mobile commerce scene has become quite attractive to hackers because many payments platforms lack the security features needed to keep financial information safe from exploitation. Lackluster security has been a major detractor for those that have been somewhat interested in mobile commerce.

Bar codes may help make platform more inclusive

The platform that MCX is developing is expected to make use of bar codes as a way to authenticate mobile payments. QR codes have been growing more common in the mobile commerce field for this purpose. The codes can be easily produced and scanned, making mobile payments somewhat more convenient. Many mobile commerce platforms make extensive use of NFC technology. There is currently a lack of NFC-enabled mobile devices available to consumers, which limits the inclusivity of many platforms.

Merchants are becoming more invested in mobile commerce

Merchants will also be able to make use of the platform from MCX. The retail sector has been growing more conscious of mobile consumers in recent years as many people begin to use their mobile devices to shop in stores. By embracing mobile commerce, these merchants may be able to remain relevant with consumers that are beginning to grow more dependent on their smartphones and tablets.
