HybridPaytech provides the world's first completely secure, end-to-end mobile
payment service that can process both credit and debit card transactions. It
is currently the only company to implement adequate security measures to meet
the strict criteria of the debit card firms. By allowing businesses to process

market for mobile payments is expected to increase dramatically.

Vodafone will provide global M2M SIM cards, remote device management tools and
highly secure, worldwide connectivity for the mobile payment devices.

Vodafone's network to HybridPaytech's regional switch, which then authorises
the payment through the debit or credit card provider.
