FinovateFall 2009 / Bling Nation

Presenter Profile:

How they describe themselves: Bling Nation provides tap and go payments at the physical point of purchase. The company enables consumers to pay merchants by tapping their mobile phone at the point of sale instead of using a credit card or cash. Financial institutions sponsor the service in their respective markets. Bling Nation offers lower costs, increased efficiency, better marketing and rewards services and improved security compared to credit cards, debit cards, checks and cash.

What they think makes them better: Bling Nation was founded in 2007 by the team that created the largest microfinance institution in Brazil and the largest alternative payment network in Brazil. Bling Nation enables consumers to use any mobile phone to pay for purchases at the point of sale. In addition to consumer convenience and instant access to coupon redemptions, merchants reduce their acceptance and banks increase income.
