Having been granted the approval for Issuing Activity from Mastercard Europe, what is SafeCharge’s role on this deal?
The approval by MasterCard Europe, which is an extension of the Company’s Principal Membership, will allow SafeCharge to issue pre-paid MasterCard products.
How will prepraid products benefit online gaming? Do you believe this is a growing trend in the industry?
Pre- paid products can assist online gaming merchants to pay winnings and affiliate traffic. It is a proven market with a number of prepaid program management players. I believe that, under this conditions, the market will evolve.
Are these technologies available on mobile phones?
We have a Cashier solution for deposits and withdrawals available across multiple platforms and devices. I think mobile is definitely a key trend in payments for the upcoming year.
