Thursday 9 June 2016 | 11:26 CET | News
Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX), the mobile payment joint venture set up by major retailers in the US, has announced that it's closing down the beta version of its CurrentC mobile payments app. In a statement, MCX said the CurrentC beta will end on 28 June, at which point all active user accounts will be disabled and stores will no longer accept CurrentC payments. The news comes after MCX last month postponed the nationwide roll-out of its service and announced 30 job cuts.
