Miami Beach, Florida (PRWEB) July 17, 2012
SafetyPay, a secure payment provider serving online shoppers, merchants and banks worldwide, announced today that it has launched a mobile version of their service available to mobile shoppers internationally. Through SafetyPay, mobile shoppers can now purchase such items as Amazon.com Gift Cards and Facebook Credits directly from their mobile device, which can be used to purchase virtual games, downloads, movies and many digital goods.
Upon checkout from any SafetyPay affiliated merchant, mobile shoppers are now able to easily select their preferred currency and bank from a drop down list on their mobile phone and then be redirected to their online or mobile bank to securely login and pay from their own bank account to complete the purchase in real time. The mobile platform will be available initially to Austria, Brazil, Costa Rica, Germany, Mexico, Peru, Spain and the United States.
Mobile devices are not only changing the way consumers interact with the Internet, but also how they shop. Smartphone users are increasingly browsing and purchasing products on their phone. Therefore, more and more merchants and banks are offering mobile versions of their websites, which SafetyPay Mobile can connect to a seamless end-to-end mobile shopping and payment solution.
SafetyPay Mobile is optimized for HTML5 compatible browsers on any smartphone including iPhone, Android, BlackBerry and Windows Mobile.
"Mobile shopping is growing rapidly and we believe it is important to provide our shoppers the best possible user experience – automatically optimized for whatever device they are using – a smaller mobile or a bigger PC screen,” said Ralf Ohlhausen, Chief Mobile & Technology Officer of SafetyPay.
SafetyPay is a global, safe and secure online payment solution that enables online banking customers to make internet purchases from merchants worldwide, and pay directly from their local bank account in their local currency. SafetyPay provides banks with an additional revenue stream and expands their merchants' customer base with an international reach of more than 250 million potential banking customers.
