Airtag launches API toolkit for PayPass mobile wallet apps

18 October 2012  |  7123 views  |  0 Mastercard - PayPass

Mobile shopping outfit Airtag has launched an API toolkit for banks and mobile network operators to ease the development of MasterCard PayPass Wallet applications.

The Airtag Kit is designed to be used in conjunction with the recently released MasterCard Mobile PayPass User Interface Software Development Kit (MMPP UI SDK), also developed by Airtag and available via the card scheme's Worldwide Developer Zone.

The package contains the latest generation Samsung Galaxy S3, a USB contactless card reader, demo tags and five UICC samples - which enable access to the Secure Element on a SIM card for development purposes.

As a result, says Airtag, high and low value contactless transactions can be simulated on the card reader, the wallet framework can be tested and development issues can be resolved. The kit also comes with a one year subscription to a user forum for demonstrations, tutorials and software updates.

James Anderson, SVP of mobile product development at MasterCard says the Kit will help banks and MNOs to more easily assemble the components they need, and access the support necessary, to realise the potential of the PayPass SDK.

Paris-based Airtag counts 35 retailers and ten mobile carriers among its customer base, including McDonalds, Reebok, Orange, CIC and Credit Mutuel.
