Advantages Operational costs are extremely low thanks to TagPay’s online architecture. Save millions in cards and terminals and accelerate your return on investment. Installation Options The platform can be installed locally or can be hosted in the cloud as a service managed by Tagattitude. TagPay offers two modes of installation that are adapted to different mobile money approaches: In stand-alone mode, TagPay functions autonomously as a mobile wallet.
All accounts are managed entirely by the platform as stored value accounts or "mobile wallets". Stand-alone In gateway mode, TagPay is seamlessly interfaced with an existing payment or banking back-office allowing it’s service to be extended to the mobile channel. In this mode, account information is stored in the existing back-office and the TagPay platform’s sole function is to secure transactions. Gateway From microfinance to e-commerce, TagPay includes a range of important mobile money applications. Microfinance Making microfinance more secure and efficient. Anyone with a cell phone can conveniently receive and repay a microfinance loan. User-friendly voice-based services replace paperwork to make microfinance services more accessible and efficient. TagPay offers both remote and proximity microfinance transactions. The beneficiary may cash-out their loan or use the money to make purchases directly using their phone. All existing cell phones can be used without prior enrollment or special apps. How it Works
There are two possible ways for loans to be disbursed:
Remotely: The MFI uses a web interface to send loans to beneficiaries’ cell phones or calls an Interactive Voice Response server and follows verbal instructions to disburse a loan.
Proximity disbursement: An agent equipped with a cell phone or computer performs a secure NSDT™ transaction with the beneficiary’s mobile.
In both cases, the beneficiary is guided by verbal instructions in their local dialect and the transaction is confirmed by SMS or printed receipt.
The beneficiary may go to a local MFI branch or affiliated merchant and withdraw the loan partially or completely using his or her mobile phone to sign for the withdrawal. The beneficiary may also leave the loan on their TagPay account and use their cell phone to buy materials for their entrepreneurial activities.
The beneficiary ultimately has more control over how the loan is used and can reduce security risks by withdrawing cash in smaller increments or keeping the money on the phone to spend in stores directly.
Reimbursement of the loan can be done remotely or through a proximity transaction.
The beneficiary deposits funds on their TagPay account through a bank branch or affiliated merchant
The beneficiary either reimburses the loan via IVR or pays the MFI agent directly using their cell phone to sign the transaction
NSDT™ is used to authenticate the beneficiary via their mobile when they receive and repay loans. Benefits
Loans can be disbursed and repaid using any mobile phone in the world.
Extremely Secure—the phone must be present to receive, use, and repay loans. Cash transport risks are eliminated.
Full traceability and transparency—all transactions are tracked online to help manage beneficiaries and field agents.
Beneficiary relationship management—real-time loan status information and ability to communicate reminders to beneficiaries.
Improved efficiency—time saved on paperwork and logistics.
User-friendly—voice-guided services for receiving and repaying loans conveniently. Cecilia gets microloans for her jewelry business sent straight to her phone. She withdraws some of the funds and spends some of it directly to buy her supplies. When she repays the loans she signs for the transaction using her mobile and has access to her loan status and history at any time. Alternative Use Case TagPay can also be used as a “mobile signature” for microfinance operations.
In this scenario, cash loans are still used and the beneficiary’s cell phone is used to sign for loans that they have received and repaid.
This solution resolves fraud, traceability, literacy, and many other barriers faced by MFIs. Wallet Transform any phone into an electronic wallet. Anyone with a cell phone can conveniently and securely store, send, and spend funds using TagPay mobile wallet. Funds are loaded on the TagPay wallet via various sources including money transfers, salaries and pensions, bank and card accounts, loans, direct cash deposits, etc. Money in a TagPay wallet can be used to pay bills, make purchases in stores and on the web, or make person-to-person payments. All existing cell phones can be used without prior enrollment or special apps. How it Works
Loading a wallet
Customers can load their TagPay wallet by depositing cash with an agent or retailer or with a payment card through the TagPay website. Funds transferred from another TagPay wallet as well as salaries, loans, and pensions received are instantly loaded onto a TagPay wallet associated to the beneficiary’s mobile phone number. If the phone number is not yet associated to a TagPay wallet, a wallet is automatically created when funds are received.
Paying with a wallet
Customers can use their TagPay wallet for a range of payments including:
Person-to-person payments and money transfers via the TagPay website or by calling an Interactive Voice Response service and following verbal instructions.
Proximity purchases at various merchant acceptance points: the customer’s cell phone must be physically present to sign the transaction using NSDT™.
Internet purchases on various e-commerce websites: NSDT™ is used to verify that the customer’s cell phone is present during the online payment.
Bill payments and airtime top-up done through an IVR, a designated retail location, or on the web.
When using TagPay to pay on a website or in a store, the customer is invited to enter his mobile phone number and pass code. TagPay instantly calls the customer’s mobile phone sends an NSDT™ chirp through the webpage or merchant’s POS*. When the chirp is heard by the customer’s phone the transaction is completed.
*The merchant’s POS can be an online computer, dedicated TagPay mobile payment terminal, or the merchant’s cell phone.
Customers can withdraw cash from their TagPay wallet in designated retail and agent locations or from enabled ATMs. The customer’s mobile phone must be present to authorize any withdrawal. Benefits Any mobile phone in the world can be an electronic wallet

When paying in a store or on the web the customer is invited to enter their mobile phone number. Any special promotions or discounts that the customer qualifies for are sent to the merchant terminal or website.

Customers can send money to other cell phones even if they are not yet enrolled—this is done on the TagPay website or by calling an Interactive Voice Response server. This simple and practical gift function makes TagPay prepaid accounts a highly viral loyalty solution.
Customer rewards services
Customers can use their cell phones to redeem various rewards in a store or on the web. To redeem rewards, the customer enters their phone number in the merchant’s terminal (or webpage). Any special offers that the customer qualifies for based on his or her profile, past purchase behavior, and retail settings are sent to the merchant’s terminal or web page. TagPay calls the customer’s phone and the customer brings their phone towards the terminal to capture the NSDT™ chirp and authenticate the presence of their mobile.

Health Enabling effective and accessible health care TagPay offers a complete health management platform to serve remote and underdeveloped areas. The patient’s mobile phone is used as both the patent’s identifier and as the means of paying the health professional. TagPay Health allows the health service provider (insurance, medical organization, medicine distribution, etc.) to control field operations online and simultaneously manage the epidemiology, insurance services, and inventory. How it Works Health professionals are equipped with TagPay terminals that have a specialized health application. The terminal is used to enter basic health or treatment information and/or the price of the service. The patient’s phone number is also entered in the terminal to identify the insurance coverage or other relevant information. The data entered is verified and the terminal displays the amount to be paid by the patient and the amount covered by insurance. The patient can pay in cash or with the money in their TagPay wallet. The insurance company will automatically wire the amount covered to the health professional.
Prepaid account services
Patients with TagPay accounts can use the funds in their accounts to pay health professionals directly.
Third party humanitarian organizations can interface with the health payment scheme to subsidize health services and/or ensure the payment of the health professional.
Once medical information such as consultations and treatments is tracked and centralized for each patient using very secure electronic mobile signature (TagPay Transaction), preventive medicine plans are possible. For instance, vaccinations can be logged and the outcome of basic checkups centralized. Consequently, the central server can detect risks and abnormal patterns and generate alerts that help identify specific treatments for a given patient. The ability to centralize, monitor, and flag health patterns dramatically improves health care as a whole. Benefits Better healthcare for all
