Isis moves beyond NFC with AmEx Serve tie-up

Isis has moved to extend its upcoming mobile wallet beyond NFC payments by striking a deal with American Express to integrate the card giant's Serve platform.

Last year AmEx agreed to add several of its cards, including Serve, to the Isis wallet, enabling users to make mobile NFC payments from their accounts.

The new deal means that when Isis launches across the US later this year, all customers will be offered an integrated AmEx Serve account, enabling them to also pay bills online and make person to person payments.

Dan Schulman, group president, enterprise growth, AmEx: "Linking the platforms will allow millions of people to conveniently and inexpensively manage and move their money. From the palm of your hand, consumers including those without access to traditional bank accounts or credit can have access to everyday financial services."

Michael Abbott, CEO, Isis, adds: "By adding American Express Serve to the Isis Wallet, we can immediately provide millions of consumers the opportunity to participate in mobile commerce as we continue to enrich the consumer experience."
