    CloudZync has launched its mobile Zync Wallet service in the UK today, paving the way for direct payments from mobile devices, loyalty card integration and other offers for shoppers. More importantly, it’ll add another option for retailers and developers looking to accept mobile payments in the UK.

    Unlike some other payment systems, the fully customizable and brandable Zync Wallet platform doesn’t charge any set-up fees or admin costs for businesses wanting to accept payments using it, and no physical cards are required to carry out a transaction, so no hardware like a card reader is necessary either.

    On the consumers side of things, mobile payments on the Zync Wallet app are carried out by pre-loading your account with credit and it will happily integrate your loyalty card details too. Special offers are then delivered via the ‘Information Centre’.
