On April 21st in Toronto, the Vodafone wallet won a PX Award for “International Program of the Year” – awarded to Vodafone, PayPal and Carta Worldwide.
The Vodafone wallet is one of the most advanced, contactless payments apps in Europe – in addition to bank card payments, millions of PayPal’s European customers can now make contactless payments with transactions funded from their PayPal accounts.
Vodafone and PayPal are two of the most significant leaders in digital payments. With a track-record of success powering a wide range of world-class consumer services from M-Pesa to Uber, they have now come together to offer a new kind of mobile wallet – open to any consumer and easily enabling payments on-line, in-app and now in-store at any POS.
This is the second award win for the new Vodafone wallet. In February the wallet won “Best Initiative in Mobile Payments” at the 2016 Card & Payments Awards.
