BNP Paribas Fortis and Belgacom have outlined plans for a mobile wallet they say will bring in-app commerce to Belgium's merchants and consumers.
BelgaCom were amongst the first to foray into live mobile payments in 2009 with PingPing developed in conjunction with Tunz (acquired by Ogone who, in turn, were recently acquired by Ingenico). Consequently the announcement of a Pilot with Accenture should
[in theory] be building on their experience gained in the intervening four years of having a live mobile money service, moreover it begs the question of why not develop pingping with Ingenico to achieve multi-channel capability?
