PS-mPay integrates with blockchain networks to seamlessly connect financial institutions and provide instant peer-to-peer payments using blockchain-based digital currency. It also provides different business models for blockchain networks based on the type of financial institution as well as the regulations published for mobile payment services.
PS-mPay supports versatile business models including bank-centric, Mobile Network Operator (MNO) centric and collaborative models. This is in addition to open Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that seamlessly integrate with the institution’s existing systems or any third-party system.
PS-mPay utilizes the latest security standards to ensure the safety of sensitive and private information and mitigate fraud and identity abuse risks. This is in addition to dual-factor authentication, role-based authorization and Public Key Infrastructure (PKI) based encryption of sensitive data.
Reporting and Monitoring
PS-mPay provides a set of valuable reports including financial statements, exchanged transactions, audit logs, reconciliation and custom report filters that can be exported into multiple formats such as XML, CSV, Excel and PDF. Users can also create custom reports and filters with minimal effort.
PS-mPay provides valuable management of charges per transaction type and currency, fixed and percentage calculation, tiers, payers and distribution. This is in addition to management over payment services for each profile, limits per transaction and currency, as well as periodical count and amount including daily, weekly, monthly, or annually.
Taxes and Commissions
PS-mPay allows the financial institution to calculate taxes for each payment service separately, as well as enables the calculation of commissions according to the count and amount of transactions conducted by end users, merchants and agents. These commissions are then transferred to the relevant wallets once the financial institution’s conditions are met.
PS-mPay provides financial institutions with a rich web portal that enables full management over the platform, offers insights on exchanged transactions and wallet balances, and is inherently complemented with a security subsystem to control user privileges, create required groups, business roles and a workflow engine.
