The multinational Visa Inc. announced today a cooperation agreement with technology company YellowPepper to provide mobile payment options for those who do not have smartphones in Latin America and the Caribbean.

YellowPepper has the “necessary presence in the region” to accelerate this technology at a time when “the payment industry moves from the plastic to the digital field,” said Allen Cueli, director of Visa Latin America and the Caribbean.

Visa noted that it is important to ensure that all payments are simple, convenient and secure regardless of the device used to pay, whether a watch, a bracelet, a telephone (no matter how unintelligent), an appliance or anyone connected to Internet.

Miami-based YellowPepper currently has more than 6.5 million active monthly users making 380 million transactions a year and connecting with more than 400,000 merchants.

“This alliance will enable us to deliver a truly powerful digital experience that is both secure, fast and, most importantly, convenient for consumers and businesses in Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Serge Elkiner, founder and president of YellowPepper .
