mChek, in partnership with Israel based Accells has showcased a contactless payment solution, that works without NFC chips and with existing 2G technologies and Card Management Platforms.
Combining service initiation by AcCells mID (i.e mobile identification) and transaction authorization with the mChek SIM Toolkit, the solution works with all existing mobile phones and does not require any change to infrastructure and platforms of Mobile Network Operators and/or Banking Infrastructure, and works in MNO-led or Bank-led environments.
AcCells’ mID is capable of identifying any mobile handset using only near field GSM signaling and, when connected with authentication and billing servers, allows users to make mobile payments directly and securely from their handset.
mChek platform enables banking-grade security through a SIM Toolkit application, enabling banks to issue Visa Debit, Credit or Prepaid cards for secure remote payments.
