CurrentC and Chase Pay gearing up for 2016 launch

Monday 2 November 2015 | 14:07 CET | Author: Bart Garvelink | Background
CurrentC has reached an agreement with JPMorgan Chase. Chase will develop Chase Pay, a mobile payment solution that will be launched in mid-2016. Chase Pay is a payments experience for in-store, in-app and online purchases, with CurrentC (also known as MCX, Merchant Customer Exchange) as its premier partner. Chase Pay will be available in mid-2016 to Chase customers across its 94 million credit, debit and pre-paid card accounts. MCX, a retail group led by Walmart, will gain access to a large potential user base. The service was originally announced almost four years ago.
