Payment services provider Ingenico has signed a partnership agreement with Ingogo, the Australian taxi services platform, to provide taxi drivers with a fully integrated and secure mobility payment solution.

The wireless Ingenico device will allow taxi drivers in Australia using the Ingogo app to turn their Android smartphones into a contactless POS device, taking payments from credit cards, debit cards, and mobile wallets.

The device gives drivers access to instant electronic receipt and automatic trip history once the transaction is processed.

Ingenico Australia managing director John Tait said : "We are thrilled to be partnering with Ingogo. The Ingenico secure payment solution provides a simple interface to expedite the payment in the fastest possible way with the acceptance of contactless, NFC phones and wallets. We are proud to support Ingogo, as they expand their operations nationally and globally."

The company announced a preliminary 30 day pilot trial with a selection of 250 cab drivers equipped with the Ingenico solution, processing over $1m in payments during the period.

Ingenico and Ingogo are planning on rolling out thousands of units across Australia over the next 12 months.
