Evercoss to pre-install mobile wallet on handsets

Indonesia’s largest smartphone and tablet manufacturer is to pre-install a mobile wallet on up to three million of its mobile devices annually, allowing users to make QR code-based in-store payments, online payments and P2P funds transfers using a platform supplied by mobile wallet provider Cellum.

EvercossEvercoss will promote the wallet, named ECPAY, via a major marketing campaign, as well as through its network of 50,000 resellers, the company says.

“Evercoss is thrilled with this opportunity, which will give more reasons for Indonesian consumers to use our products and benefit their own commercial activities,” says Evercoss COO and co-founder Sony Wangsa Putra.

“A partnership with Cellum is a strategic jump start for a local smartphone manufacturer like Evercoss, a step into the future that will give us more sustainable growth that will, at the same time, offer tremendous benefit to the entire ecosystem.”

“Reloading airtime, sending money, paying electricity bills or shopping in a store or outdoors will take just a matter of seconds,” adds János Kóka, the CEO of Cellum.

“While Apple Pay and Samsung Pay focus on e-commerce and contactless payment use cases common in the Western world, with Evercoss we are creating a system for those types of transactions that are of essential importance to the Indonesian people.”
