Part 1: Interview with Michel Poignant, President and CEO of Paymotech on MVNO, Mobile Wallet, VoIP and Social Music

  • Part 1: Interview with Michel Poignant, President and CEO of Paymotech on MVNO, Mobile Wallet, VoIP and Social Music
  • Michel Poignant is the CEO of Paymotech, a service worth "paying" attention to. A large majority of people on planet Earth have a cell phone. Suzanne Bowen, VP of DIDXchange interviews the astute and gregarious businessman at the beginning of a beautiful spring day in March 2011 on mobile payments and  its universal wallet solution that includes a contactless sticker option

    So how does Paymotech work? Michel states that he came originally from two different markets. One is the stored value count ... debit bank cards people are using for general purposes such as receiving their payroll. The second is VoIP on mobile SIM card business.

    After a few years, some customers for the prepaid card wanted VoIP services and also vice versa, so they started a mix of the two services.

    "We started to think of providing services like an incoming phone number from anywhere the client needs even when that phone number is of a city in another country that the client is not currently living in," states Mr. Poignant. "That is how we came to DIDX."

    Mobile payments, mobile transfers, mobile everything is in the works for Paymotech set of services. The company is an MVNO with services available with roaming in over 190 countries. They decided, why not merge all the services they are providing into one mobile wallet solution.

    Why not make money available any time and not just when one wants to make a phone call?

    Michel says, "Seventy percent of business in the mobile world is pre-paid. Three billion of them do not have a bank account. It is simply a matter of transferring credit from the user to someone else for anything using the mobile phone, to pay merchants, to make a payment, to have cash access! We offer a real mobile wallet (Paytoo) since November 2009. It was the first in use world-wide."

    This is at least 17 months earlier than Google who recently announced a Google-backed system for mobile payments, expected to be released later in 2011.
