Isis has taken a step toward aligning the industries necessary to bring payments and commerce to the phone. NFC Times reports “the move could reduce expected fragmentation among NFC mobile wallets in the United States and help Isis recruit major banks and other credit, debit and prepaid issuers.”
Jaymee Johnson, our head of marketing, also explained to NFC Times how the milestone advances Isis’ open platform and provides consumer choice. “Isis is focused on the right experience,” he said.
As a CNET story points out, Isis is the first mobile commerce venture to ink a deal with all four major payment networks. The move is important because it means Isis consumers and merchants will have ubiquity and freedom of choice when it comes to payment network acceptance.
