Clickatell, the mobile messaging and Chat Commerce leader, was recently named the top payments innovator by Mobile Ecosystem Forum (MEF) at the MEFFYS Awards ceremony at this week's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The company was recognized in the Payments Category for its Chat 2 Pay functionality, which was rated one of the top 3 innovative mobile services demonstrating usability and security by the MEF community.
On February 27, 2023, MEF's 18th Annual MEFFYS Awards ceremony honored winners in seven categories. Clickatell in each category with the most votes from MEF Minute (newsletter) subscribers and MEF Members were chosen for having the best idea and trend in the mobile ecosystem.
Chat 2 Pay is a digital payment enabler provided by Clickatell, building a new channel for enterprises to request payments. Chat 2 Pay enables organizations to enhance their customer service and expand their digital commerce offerings by providing a simple, convenient, and secure method of making payments within mobile messaging channels such as WhatsApp and SMS.
Clickatell has successfully arranged the intricate relationship between mobile messaging, payments, or their customers' order management system (OMS) in the architecture of Chat 2 Pay, thereby mitigating the risk associated with merchants managing payment card details.
Pieter de Villiers, CEO and Co-Founder at Clickatell, said, "We are thrilled to earn this recognition for payments innovation in digital commerce and mobile messaging." He added, "Our legacy and leadership in payments and mobile messaging are based on the needs of our customers. We are only as successful as our customers are."
