Ecommpay caters to evolving mobility industry with solution launch

International payment service provider and direct bank card acquirer, Ecommpay, has deepened its engagement within the growing mobility industry through the launch of its new payment solution. 

It comes as its shared mobility scheme continues to expand in a host of areas and amongst a plethora of demographics. 

The EU and UK regulated company’s new offering functions in the UK, Europe, Central Asia, Russia and CIS, and can be tailored to individual business’ needs. Ecommpay is seeking to allow mobility companies to offer their customers familiar payment methods, while at the same time building a unified payment process to ensure brand continuity and accessibility in all markets.

Companies can accept rides and facilitate bookings both online and via smartphone, while customers can use any available payment method to complete their transactions, including Apple and Google Pay. Card payment details can be saved and stored safely and securely for future payments using tokenisation.

Furthermore, payments linked to a mobile app facilitate the withdrawal of a small amount of money at the end of a ride so that companies can authorise a predetermined amount and only need to charge for the precise time the vehicle was rented. This means users can pay as they go without needing to commit to longer-term usage or forward-planning.

Paul Marcantonio, Executive Director of ECOMMPAY, commented: “We are witnessing a major transformation in the way we travel around urban spaces, with micromobility and mobility-as-a-service set to become the future for transport.”

The offering integrates efficiently into existing mobility ecosystems and can be used for ridesharing and carsharing, taxi and ride-hailing, bike and scooter sharing, and delivery services.

The company is a principal member of Visa and Mastercard, and a member of Visa Direct and MoneySend, as well as being the first payment provider on the PayPal Commerce Platform and the first acquirer to implement a Mastercard Dashboard.
