CHARGE Anywhere®, the provider of the most robust, award-winning mobile payment solutions, has launched its mobile payments platform in Nigeria. The explosion of interest in mobile payments in emerging markets garnered a need to deliver mobile transactions securely. G-PAY Africa has selected CHARGE Anywhere as their premiere offering to be distributed.

"CHARGE Anywhere delivers a vast array of PCI PA DSS validated mobile payment offerings, allowing us to provide our customers not only traditional card payment transactions, but also pre-paid utility payment services. All transactions are processed securely, with proof of a printed receipt. This is what we need to be successful," said Edmund Olotu, CEO and Founder of G-Pay Instant Payments.

The pilot, demonstrating prepaid utility bill applications, is running on mobile phones and GPRS wireless POS terminals processing and recording payments for traditional Bank/ATM card and cash transactions. "We couldn't be more excited with the launch in Nigeria. Anyone who is looking for mobile payments requires a secure payment ecosystem that is flexible, adaptable and can keep pace with the evolution of mobile payments," said John Malone, Vice President of Business Development Mobile Payments. "Our device-agnostic platform is a perfect fit for the market and for the types of mobile payments delivered by G-Pay Instant Payments," added Malone.

"This partnership with CHARGE Anywhere will enable our organization to provide industry-leading, secure payment transactions with wireless POS terminals and most of the commonly used mobile phones in Nigeria by leveraging ComsGate®, CHARGE Anywhere's PCI DSS Level 1 secure payment gateway," said Lekan Adanijo, CTO at G-Pay Instant Payments.

The pilot phase will conclude in 2011, followed by full launch and installation in the same year.
