LONDON | The UK’s leading payment service provider DataCash, a MasterCard Company, has partnered with Shopgate, a mobile shopping software specialist, to enable merchants of all sizes to benefit from the latest mobile payments technology.
Connectivity between Offline Marketing and Mobile Shopping
Shopgate currently provides a wide range of services, from mobile optimised websites, mobile and tablet apps to unique services that enable connectivity between the offline marketing world and mobile shopping. This is through linking promotional materials such as catalogues, print ads, posters, billboards, recommendations, store windows, TV ads and online shops to mobile shopping terminals. The new partnership with DataCash will further enhance this offering, enabling Shopgate’s clients to process fast and secure transactions via their mobile platforms thanks to DataCash’s advanced payments technology and industry leading fraud and risk management tool – Gatekeeper:2.0.
