Vodafone Germany to discontinue Wallet app in June

Wednesday 18 April 2018 | 13:13 CET | News
Vodafone Germany announced it will discontinue its digital payment app Wallet in Germany from June, making it the last of Germany's main network operators to phase its own mobile payment app from the market. Vodafone said the Wallet app and its related services will no longer function beginning 28 June, while new customers are already no longer able to register for the mobile payment service. Vodafone said the fact that O2 and Telekom no longer offered payment apps made it difficult to develop a market standard.
