Visa to carry out mobile payment trials

Thursday, November 15, 2007

Global payment services provider Visa plans to carry out mobile payment tests in Brazil, Canada and Malaysia over Visa's mobile platform starting in 2008, the company said in a statement.

In Brazil, Visa is carrying out trials in conjunction with the Companhia Brasileira de Meios de Pagamento (VisasNet do Brasil), which would be in charge of channeling all mobile credit and debit payment transactions in the country.

The trials form part of Visa's strategy to boost mobile payments worldwide. Visa's mobile payment methods, introduced this year, are already in use in Asia and the US.
