More on MSwipe, another Square Clone
AXA Philippines, one of the country’s largest life insurers, and Metrobank Card Corporation (MCC) recently launched the country’s first mobile payment system for life insurance called MSwipe. MSwipe allows AXA financial advisors to use their registered smartphones and tablets to receive credit card payments for their customers’ premiums.
Customers will no longer need to carry cash or checkbooks when they meet with their agents, and the transaction can be done at the customer’s convenience– at home, in the office, or even in a restaurant or coffee shop. Customers can also be assured of the security of the transaction, as they will receive a real-time e-mail receipt.
Ton Magtoto – AXA Philippines Head of Customer Experience: “MSwipe transactions consist of three easy steps—swipe, sign, and confirm” adding that upon completion of these steps, the payment is received by the bank in just two seconds. “MSwipe can accept most major credit cards issued by a local or foreign bank. It’s innovative, secure, and convenient for our customers.”
Riko Abdurrahman – President of Metrobank Card Corporation: “We are proud to be the first in the Philippines to bring to the market the newest innovation in payment services.”
Secure Data: MSwipe’s 5-Level Control System
- a unique staff pin exclusive to each device
- an administrator’s activation code
- a MasterKey that has to pass through an authentication server and validation server before a transaction is authorized
- no credit card information is stored in the agent’s smartphone
- an email confirmation will be sent real-time to the customer with transaction details, including a map that pinpoints the location of the transaction
MSwipe is powered by Swiff, which provides banks worldwide with safe and secure mobile-commerce technologies by partnering with and seamlessly integrating into any bank anywhere in the world.
