NORTHRIDGE, Calif., April 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — Innovative Payment Solutions, Inc. (OTCQB: IPSI) (“Innovative” or the “Company”), a Southern California based fintech company focused on building a 21st century digital payment solution, IPSIPay, today announced that it has signed a Service Agreement with Red Efectiva S.A. DE C.V. (“Red Efectiva”) https://redefectiva.com/web/ – a payment processing company based in Monterrey, Mexico.
Red Efectiva is a leading service provider and payment processor in Mexico. With over 2,500 locations, Red Efectiva offers more than 150 services, such as domestic bill pay, prepaid air time for mobile phones, banking operations and insurance packages. This agreement with Red Efectiva will strengthen Innovative’s presence in Mexico and more importantly, will aid underserved customers living in US and Mexico who are in need of financial payment services with swift transaction time and substantially reduced costs.
COVID-19 has pushed many customers towards digitalization and increased the demand for secure and affordable digital payments, which has triggered the need to expand mobile payments infrastructure. Partnering up with Red Efectiva will allow Innovative to access this infrastructure and deliver much needed financial services both locally and abroad.
Mexico is steadily establishing itself as an evolving e-commerce industry: mobile commerce revenues are outpacing total e-commerce expansion, and the sector is forecasted to expand at a 20.1 percent annual rate through 2023 reaching almost $28.5 billion.
Furthermore, Mexico’s digital payments market through Mobile POS Payments has reached $8.5 billion in 2020, which is more than double 2019 numbers, and by 2025 the industry is expected to generate $30 billion. Innovative sees a huge opportunity to break into this market while also assisting retailers in the United States and Mexico in streamlining their operations and lowering costs.
Andrey Novikov, CTO of Innovative Payment Solutions, Inc., stated, “The Service Agreement with Red Efectiva gives our Company an opportunity to broaden our IPSIPay ecosystem and reach thousands of people in need of our services. Our universal digital payment platform and mobile technology will make financial services more inclusive and affordable. Mexico is our initial roll out in Latin America and we anticipate further expansion across Central and South America in the near future.”
