Orange and Barclaycard will launch mobile payment services

Orange, currently the world’s ninth largest mobile carrier, today announced a strategic partnership with Barclaycard, the global credit provider owned by Barclays plc.

The two companies will launch a series of mobile financial services in the UK, with the final purpose of “revolutionizing the way people pay on the high street and web”.

By using the upcoming services, customers should be able to pay for what they shop with their mobile phone, by simply waving the device against a card reader. The wireless payments will be powered by MasterCard.
 
Apart from that, the services will also include stuff like mobile alerts and banking applications. Moreover, mobile ticketing and transport services are planned.
