Vancouver, British Columbia - October 2, 2018 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Upco International Inc. (CSE: UPCO) (OTCQB: UCCPF) (FSE: U06) ("UPCO") is pleased to announce, further to the recent agreement with eMoney plc, that it has commenced development of the interface between Emoney and the Upco application, regarding user authentication and transaction / account management. This is an important early step in deployment of a full-featured mobile payment and transfer application, encompassing both Fiat and Cryptocurrencies, within our E-wallet. Details regarding this innovative offering, which is in the advanced design stage, will be addressed in future news releases.
Email authentication, targeted for release by the end of next week, will enable users to authenticate on the application without a phone number / SIM card. This holds a number of important implications for utilization, and user security and privacy. With this in place, users will be able to download the Upco app to their mobile device (Android tablet, iPad), authenticate using their email address, and benefit from the range of Upco services via their device. In the event that a telephone is lost or stolen, users will also be able reaccess their information via email and password from anywhere in the world, without the loss of data or data integrity / security.
Balance transfer will enable Upco users to transfer the account balance in their E-wallet to the E-wallet of another Upco user at a nominal cost, thereby improving the utility and flexibility of this service. Balance transfer is scheduled for release in mid-October.
Upco is also working to deliver support for User Groups and Channels, both of which will deliver significant benefits to the Upco user community. These enhancements will be addressed in future news releases.
According to Statista, in 2018, global transaction volume in the mobile point-of-sale payments space is expected to reach US$391 billion and projected to increase to over US$1.3 trillion by 2022.
Mr. Andrea Pagani, CEO and President commented: "We are extremely pleased and gratified at the steady progress that is being made in the development and delivery of our integrated communications and e-commerce solutions. There are a host of exciting opportunities of great benefit to users in this evolving space, and we continue to monitor them closely with a view to enhancing and extending our solutions on an ongoing basis. The improvements cited in this release, particularly email authentication, attest to Upco's strong and ongoing commitment to user security and privacy, and protection from third party intervention."
