“Our direct carrier billing solutions provided through the globally available mopay platform guarantee a fast, seamless and secure payment process for consumers and new revenue channels for online merchants. We are pleased to be acknowledged with a CNP award for our work driving significant increases in sales for companies choosing mopay’s carrier-based billing solution,” said Kolja Reiss, managing director at mopay.
A panel of independent judges with experience in payments and the card-not-present industry, selects the awardees .The judges include Paul Larsen, Managing Partner and Founder of PLC, a card-not-present advisory group, and Polly Bauer, an expert on all forms of payment acceptance.
Ten card-not-present service providers took home 20 awards in eight different categories in the first annual CNP Awards. The awards, presented by Steven Casco, founder and president of CardNotPresent.com, honor the companies, programs and solutions that have distinguished themselves in the card-not-present space in the last year.
“The jury selected mopay as the overall winner in the Best Direct Carrier Billing category for its highly distinguishable, full-service approach that solves the most important issues that merchants typically face,” stated Steve Casco, founder of CardNotPresent.com and organizer of CNP Expo and Awards.
At the awards ceremony this afternoon, Casco explained why the CNP Expo originated and how the awards grew out of a spirit of inclusion he says cannot be found in other events aimed at this payments niche, which includes the growing segments of e- and m-commerce.
