Hello and welcome to the Current Affair's Portal of ExamPundit.in. Private sector lender YES Bank has partnered UltraCash Technologies to launch payments processing through sound waves.
UltraCash utilises a patent-pending technology, through which payment data is securely transferred from one device to the other, using unique ultra high frequency sound waves.
This partnership will enable Ultracash to issue YES Bank-sponsored mobile wallets and employ YES Bank’s immediate payment service (IMPS) payments platform to enable processing of instant proximity transactions.
The innovative technology ensures that UltraCash’s ‘Tap and Pay’ works on all devices and doesn’t need any special hardware to make the payment.
There is no need of special near field communication (NFC) chips.
UltraCash’s sound wave technology enables mobile payments to be done without the need for Internet connectivity using any of the options, such as bank accounts and cards.
Besides, UltraCash will issue YES Bank-branded digital wallets to consumers to aid quicker, seamless and friction-free payments.
