BOULDER, Colo.--(AllPayNews)--Mocapay, a leader in mobile marketing and payments, today announced that it has been selected by Smart Transaction Systems (STS) as a mobile marketing and payment platform to mobilize STS’s card-based payment systems. Mocapay’s mobile marketing and payment platform enables real-time mobile payments, promotions and loyalty at the point of sale. Mocapay and STS will launch a pilot in 2008, selecting from STS’s 4,500 retail clients.

“Mocapay’s comprehensive and secure mobile marketing and payments platform integrates seamlessly with our suite of existing products,” said Ray Clopton, CEO of STS. “Mocapay offers the robust functionality, integration simplicity and mobile marketing capabilities my customers demand.”

This is a perfect example of how our platform can empower merchants to extend tender choice and create one-to-one marketing capabilities with their most loyal consumers.”
